Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

2002 Chevy Silverado - Turn signals work fine until brakes applied, or headlamps on. Then either dim, fast or backfeed thru other bulbs.

Never mind. Thought it was a bad ground somewhere due to the backfeed. Dropped the spare, found a ground tap about a foot or two forward of the rear bus block, line was sheared. Problem solved.

I had an issue like this one on a 2007 Colorado. I assume you mean the turn signal indicator inside the truck lights up. It was a bad bulb. think it was the turn signal bulb on the side that is lighting up. As for the gear indication being dim there is more than one bulb that lights them up and one may have blown. I hope this helps.

Brake lights wont work! All others do!


I just had the same problem on my '04 Silverado. All it was was corrosion in the socket/bulb. Put some dialectic grease on both the bulbs and worked them in and out a couple of times and now they work fine. Was weird that they both went out suddenly and together but I guess they are made exactly the same.

One headlight bright, the other dim


For some reason, Toyota chooses to wire their headlamps differently than domestic cars, with dual fuses for the headlamps, and a common ground for each headlamp...The reason that the lamp was dim is the bulb was getting power thru a "backfeed" condition, due to the poor ground. The fuse may have blown due to the poor ground, also.
