How do I change the front side marker light bulbs?


Bi-Xenons - 6000K D1S
High Beams - Osram Nightbreakers H7
Fogs - PIAA H11 Yellow Ion
Cornering Lights - Osram Nightbreakers H3
Front Park Lights - High-Powered LEDs with built-in resistors
Front Signal Lights - Sylvania Silverstar 7507A ST (Silver Bluish but lights up Amber)
Front Sidemarkers - InviSilver W5W (Silver but lights up Amber)
Rear Signal Lights - P21W Stealth Bulbs (Silver but lights up Amber)
Reverse Lights - Sylvania Silverstar 7506ST or Error-Free LEDs
License Plate Lights - C5W Error-Free High-Powered LEDs
  • Turn the engine off and approach the side of the porsch with the burn-out side-marker light. If you are replacing both, start at either side; the replacement procedure is the same.
  • 2 Remove the screws from the plastic fender liner. Peel back the liner to access the area behind the fender.
  • 3 Reach your hand inside to gain access to the side-marker light's backing. Push the backing forward to release the side-marker lens; it's held in place by small clips.
  • 4 Grab the lens on the outer side and turn it over to access the back. Gently turn the bulb to release it from the plastic lens.
  • 5 Pull the bulb straight out to remove it from the electrical socket. Insert a new bulb, but do not touch the glass part of the bulb with your hand.
  • 6 Push the new bulb into the side-marker lens. Turn it clockwise to install it. Push the side-marker lens back into place. Apply gentle pressure to the lens to pop it back into its mount.
  • 7 Replace the screws along the edge of the fender liner.

    On a 2004 Hyundai Accent 4 door, are both bulbs in the amber light supposed to be turn signals? I have no "parking" lights, and both bulbs in the amber section blink only as turn signals. The manual is...


    okay,the bulbs are amber for the turn signals.
    the parking lights actuate by turning off the ignition and moving the indicator arm left.right.(not all markets)

    Fog lights not coming on when turn switch


    It is possibly the light switch that is faulty but before you change this make sure you check all fuses and relative relays

    2002 Saturn SL headlights stay on


    On a 2002 saturn, the headlights are not automatic, you have to turn the knob on the end of the signal light lever to turn them off.
    Also, some models are equipped with "Daytime running lights"; a safety feature. these daytime running lights are just the amber colored front signal lights, which turn on automatically when the parking brake is released to make your car more visible during daylight hours. Furthermore, if any headlight refuses to shut off, there is an electrical problem, most likely a failed relay, which are located in the underhood fuse panel and can be checked quite easily with a multimeter, relay failures are veryrare, but not unheard of, especially in vehicles equipped with aftermarket fog lights. Thankfully they are cheap and readily available and are as easy to change as a fuse.

    Lights


    FROM: Lusty Kid:

    Your fog lights should not work with high beam... they should work with the low beams. they are connected wrong, which probably drew too much current through the light switch burning out the contact points for the parking lights in the switch

    Start by Fixing the fog light connections to work with low beams. Appears to me this was not factory installed. Aftermarket kit maybe! Then see if your parking lights work. If parking lights don't work still and everything else works, replace the light switch $50 at the dealer. The switch works the fog lamps when you pull out the knob to turn on the fog lamps when the lights are turned on. When the fogs are on you will see a little amber light to let you know your fogs are on. When you switch to high beam the fog lamps go off. Again if its not working that way, then is wired wrong. Needless to say, there should be connectors in the harness of the lights for the fog lamps. Use those if possible with the kit that you can get at the dealer, or you can splice the connector with those blue splicing clips sold at the auto part store. Make sure ground is ground when splicing and water proof the connection sith silicone and tape.
