WHAT SHOULD I DO TO FIX THE PASSANGER'S SIDE FOG LIGHT, AFTER TRYING TO REPLACE THE BULB, AND STILL NOT WORKING?


What is the condition of the bulb socket? Contacts show signs of corrosion or overheating? Use a meter to find out if it's missing the 12 volts to the bulb or if the ground is missing (open/high resistance). With the fog lamps powered on, connect the black meter lead to a good solid ground on the body of the car. Touch the red meter lead to each contact in the socket which the bulb plugs into. One of the contacts should measure about 12 volts. If no 12 volts then you will need to check fuses and wiring to find the open circuit causing the no voltage situation. If you measure 12 volts, then you know you have power to the bulb. The problem will then be with the ground. Turn off the fog lamps, set the meter to measure resistance (ohms). Leave the black meter lead connected where it was. Connect the red meter lead to the contact in the bulb socket that you did NOT measure the 12 volts at. The meter should read no/low/minimal resistance. If you measure high resistance, then you will need to locate the corrosion or open/broken wire between the bulb connector and grounding point on the car. Good luck!

Tail light out


If your socket is getting power then the bulb should light. Are you checking for power with a test light or meter? Is it getting a full 12 volts or more? If you are is the bulb getting a good ground? If all this is good maybe the bulb you are trying is no good. Even new bulbs can get the filaments broken during shipping. Please rate my answer so I am awarded points for it.

Remove the bulb and either replace it or check to see if it is good with an ohm meter. If the bulb is good check to see if the connection is corroded. If so, make sure the power is off and clean the connection throughly with a wire brush or other tool. If there is no corrosion check to see if you have 12 volts DC at the connection with a volt meter set to 20 volts DC. If the bulb is good, it is clean, and you do not have voltage then you have a wiring problem. Work you way backward and check for a loose or cut wire.

Now remove the bulb & put your volt meter to the
center socket contact & ground your blk lead.

See if you get 12.6 volt back to the socket
If not,then you have a voltage drop before the socket

I hate to suggest a wiring diagram, as your doing good
so far,BUT you may need one, after you get dirty under the
car some more following the wiring

Auto back plate light will not work all of a sudden, even when connected with other known working hot wires and new bulb. what am i missing?


Hi, check with a test light or volt meter ( make sure tester has a good ground ) that you have 12 volts at the bulb socket, if test shows good it's likely to be a bad ground for light socket , look closely inside socket for corrosion too , cleaning it up while your at it will not hurt.

CHECK THE BULB SOCKET WITH A VOLT METER. IF YOU ARE GETTING VOLTAGE, THEN CHECK THE BULBS WITH AN OHM METER, & SEE IF THE BULBS ARE REALLY GOOD. IF YOU DON'T HAVE AN VOLT/OHM METER, IT WOULD PROBABLY BE CHEAPER TO JUST REPLACE BOTH BULBS.

Headlight,brake lights and radio light is out.


An over charging condition can burn out bulbs. Are the turn signals flashing faster than normal? Either way I would have the generator voltage checked. You acan do this with a simple volt meter accross the battery with the engine running but have somone hold the throttl open just off idle for the test. Also you can check in with Advance Auto parts or others, they will check your charging sytem for you for free I think.

Good luck
