An example... Stephanie Collins,

(because VAGUE GENERALITIES can only be
offered without your year, make & model)...

NORMALLY I would suggest:
Taking your (yet to be disclosed) year, make & model
and go onto the INTERNET... Forums & chat groups...

Whoever you are COMFORTABLE sharing your
super secret year, make & model...
(obviously not FIXYA)

Sooo... Go to the DEALER FIRST...

I personally you should go to PARTSGEEK...
to find your part.... or autozone...

and try to muscle your way through their nonsense...

Rockauto, AMAZON & eBay are way to easy
and simple... (in my personal opinion)...

Then again...
If the car is a 1967 Austin Healey (BJ8) MK III, 3000...
I might suggest some entirely different PART sources...
>> ((in your search for a "TRAFFICATOR")).

RARE... BUT AVAILABLE:
"Control head assembly"

See... amazing what can be found with the
YEAR, MAKE and MODEL... (savvy... Stephanie Collins?)

Installed LED turn signal lights. Turn signal now blinks too fast. Solution


Hi Dennis
the indicator blinking fast because the LED use less AMP then ordinary bulb, I know an old trick to solve this problem is to connect an extra bulb to each rear indicator by running an extra wires from the light connector to an extra bulb holder.
Good Luck

How to replace bulb in front bumper turn signal housing 1995 jag xj6


hello,
  • Identify the blown bulb. Note that if a headlight bulb has blown, the dip beam is on the outside and the high beam is on the inside. Turn off the ignition switch and light switches.

  • Open the hood and replace any blown headlight bulbs. Press the plastic spring clips and remove the bulb holder from the assembly. Pull the bulb out of the bulb holder and replace it with a new bulb. It only fits one way. Be sure not to touch the bulb's glass. Replace any parking lights at the same time, they are in the headlamp unit too.

  • Remove the front turn signal light unit in the bumper to change the turn signal bulb. Push gently on the inside edge and insert a blade between the bumper and the lens at the outside edge. Compress the spring and remove the lens. Fit a new lamp by inserting it into the plug. The side marker light is changed using a similar process.

  • Open the trunk to replace the rear fog light, stop light, tail light, reversing light and turn signal light. Remove the rear light cover and turn the bulb holder fastener 90 degrees counter clockwise. Remove the expired bulb, fit a new one and replace the parts, turning the bulb holder clockwise.

  • Thanks..

    Please help ,i have a 1990 jeep wrangler, while removing the fuse i broke the connector that the fuse goes into. what is it called and where can i get one?


    Since you did not mention where the fuse was, you really haven't given enough info. But, if the fuse is in a fuse block, either the under dash one or the power distribution center under the hood, probably the easiest way to do that repair without replacing the entire block would be to take it apart so you can access the wiring inside, behind the one you broke, then get an in-line fuse holder. Attach it to the wiring that goes to the broken port and put the appropriate size fuse in it.When putting it back together, be sure not to pinch any wires including the new ones. Locate the fuse holder near the original block so you can get to it.
    When buying the holder, note that they come rated for different draw fuses. Get one that is close to the one you will be using but don't use one that is rated lower. Using a 20 amp holder and a 15 amp fuse is fine but the other way around is not.

    2. Disconnect the battery.
    3. Switch off all electrical connectors.
    4. Turn off ignition.
    5. Remove the rear light, as follows:
    6. Remove the rear striker mount cover.

    99 silhouette.all bulbs are in working order.right (not left) signal flashes fast when headlights are on and even worse when brakes depressed(lights on or off).also lights on both rears are real strange on...


    I had similar symptoms - rapid flashing of directional when headlights on and brake depressed when making a left turn, both directional indicators in dash light dimly when brake depressed, "Check Traction Control System" indicator On even with ATC turned Off and "strange" indications in tail lights.

    Check the pins in the connector at the Lamp Holder Assembly for your Rt. Tail Light for arcing and corrosion. (The female pin is in the vehicle harness connector and the male is part of the Lamp Holder Assembly.) If found, because the male connector is part of the Lamp Holder Assembly, you'll have to replace the Lamp Holder Assembly and the harness section coming in from the vehicle containing the female connector.

    I just repaired this problem in the left tail light on my '01 van with a part from a '99 van I found at a local salvage yard.

    Audi A4 need to replace rear brake light on audi a4


    Inside the boot is a plastic cap embeded in the boot liner. Remove the cap to reveal a screw. Undo the screw and the whole rear light cluster will come away in a sideways and not rearward direction to reveal all of the bulbs. Hope this helps.

    Rear brake light problem


    The tail light housing bulb holders are notorious for not making good contact to the tail light housing. Remove the housing, and disconnect the electrical connector. Label each bulb holder prior to removal, with a marker pen. 1, 2, 3, upper, middle, lower, etc. Remove each bulb holder, by turning counter clockwise 1/2 turn, and withdraw holder. Inspect each contact. You can bend the contacts outward a tiny bit, just flex it a tiny bit, and check with an ohmmeter for contact. Also inspect the bulb holders for melting from bulb heat, so much so that the plastic holder, which contains the bulb contacts, no longer make proper contact to the bulb. Also check the bulbs with an ohmmeter to verify that the bulbs are good. When reinstalling the bulb holders, check that the little flanges on the holders are properly inserted into the tail light housing. Reconnect electrical connector, and reinstall housing into vehicle. On a further note, with the electrical connector disconnected from the housing, you can check for voltages from the connector pins to ground, using a voltmeter. Turn ignition switch to run position, turn on headlight, and turn on blinker, or use stick to push brake pedal, against front of seat, and verify voltage from pins to vehicle frame (or connector ground pin). If no voltage, then check fuses, or broken wiring. My experience, however, is poor connection from bulb holders to tail light housing.
