I am trying to change the bulb in the left turn signal. How do I get to it?


Front: remove the headlight housing to access the turn signal housing.
Rear: remove the tailight housing via the wing nuts inside the trunk.

No Dash lights, or tail lights. All fuses and bulbs are good. Headlights and turn signals fine. Very confused....please help.


Sounds as if you may have a short did you check the bulbs? I would check the bulbs and make sure they are good. when you lift the rear hatch lid search around the wires and see if you have a exposed wire or perhaps a loose wire connection. Allot of times wires in a vehicle that year start getting frayed and worn from putting different items in the rear of the vehicle.

Brake & Turn signals do not work when headlights are on


The problem is what they call the printed circuit in the tail light. Remove the twist off light bulb connector. You will see the contacts inside and that the plastic is warped. You can purchase the entire fixture for about $350 if you replace it yourself. A dealer will charge about $450 per tail light fixture. Chrysler won't admit they have a problem that they should have issued a recall for. The problem is that if your stoplights are out, you may be involved in a rear end collision. Chrysler doesn't care. What I did was purchase a right angle tailight bulb holder and standard #1197 stoplight bulbs from advance auto supply. You have to trim the existing socket a little and splice the wires for the new light socket, but it beats paying $900 for replacing the two fixtures. I fixed mine about a year ago and haven't had any problems.
