first thing to do, go with the replacement of the light bulbs, high beam and low beam are two different fillaments on the ligh bulb, as for the rear also replace the bulbs, when your flasher rellay flashes faster, it means that there is less drop of current in the circuit, like only one light bulb working.

SOURCE: LT signal fault

It is very difficult to diagnose your problem without being in front of your vehicle. But I will let you in on a tip-This vehicle substitutes bulbs for inoperable bulbs i.e. if your brake light goes out the bulb monitoring system will substitute your tail lights in place of the inoperable brake light. It can be frustrating you are not very familiar with your vehicle because when the brake switch is depressed you will see lights on and still get the message on the heads up display. also it is very important that the bulb wattage is exact. any difference in resistance will trigger a inop bulb problem. Also I believe that the turn signal is a dual filament bulb-one for turn signal and the other for your running lights. hopefully I have been helpful

SOURCE: Need to solve towbar wiring fault for trailer

This sounds a bit crazy, but you do not have a good solid ground to your trailer brake lights. You may have to run a separate ground wire from the trailer to the car. Pull your trailer close to the front of your car, close to the battery. Use some wire to connect your trailer to the battery. Then touch each contact one at the time until you learn which port turns on which light(s). Using the wires, only one in the ground connector and the other in the brake connector. gain access to one or both sides of the trailer lights, use another wire and touch the base of the bulbs to the metal of the trailer if the light gets brighter you need to run another ground wire. Hope this helps FixYa up.

Lf rear turn signal not working. LF front, RT front & rear working. Replaced with 3 new bulbs but no joy. What would cause one blinker to not work?

This could be a fuse so check them all, next make sure you are not missing a burned out light or have the wrong bulbs in.

Replace the flasher unit, make sure the connections in each socket is clean, make sure the wires are in good order.

Also the switch control might be at fault.
hope this helps.

2006 Jeep Commander Tail light

The tail light circuit is separate from the brake and turn signal circuit. Either the bulb socket has gone bad or a wire has flaked out. Check for voltage at the socket on either pin base when you have your parking lights on. If voltage is present, it is either a worn socket failing to hold the bulb properly, or another bad bulb. If no voltage, determine which wire on the other side is tail light power, and run a new wire across to the side that isn't working and connect it to provide power.

One metal contact not working in light assembly of right rear turn signal

Must be a bad socket, anyway. If I understand, you are talking about the two contact points inside the socket? On a two filament bulb, one contact is for the smaller filament park light, and the other contact is for the turn signal and/or brake light, the larger filament inside the bulb. So if you tested with a test light, with park lights on, one contact only would light up the tester. If you pressed the brakes, the other contact would have a steady light on the tester. That same contact would or should have a blinking test light, with the key on and the right turn signal on.
I would not be surprised if you need a new assembly. Possibly, too, the ground for that side needs checked.

The bulb has 2 filliments in it ,one for the brake light ,the other for the park light,
I imagine the bulb is bad.

The boot light will not work even with a new bulb

Fast solution:
Assuming all fuses are OK.
Check the filaments (look for a broken filament wire) in the old bulb to make sure it's a bulb problem. If the old bulb is truely defective, check the new bulb to make sure it does not have a broken filament. If the bulb looks OK, take a look at the socket to make sure that it is not rusty or corroded. If the socket contacts are not clean, take a small piece of fine sandpaper and clean both the center contact and the inside of the socket.
If you have tried these things, and the light still does not come on, you'll have to do a continuity trace of the wiring to fine where the power to the bulb is being interrupted.

Right turn signal flashes too fast

Usually this is caused by a burnt and melted bulb socket (look inside the socket at the bulb contacts), you have to replace it with a new-revised bulb socket, which entails cutting the wiring harness and splicing a new socket. This is a factory deffect which GM refuses to acknowledge.
