    I more or less came to the same conclusion. As the light switch is an enclosed unit on the steering column. Do you know of any way in which it can be removed and tested before I purchase a replacement?

My front air works fine,rear air does not even come on using either driver or passenger control knobs.Think control switch(switches) are inop?


If you had a volt meter, you could test inputs at switches, but start with the one on the dash first not the overhead. Always check fuses first for correct voltage on bothe sides of the fuse. It is not likely ther is a rear blower fuse. You can actually test the switch too with the resistance test of the meter. As you cycle the switch through positions you can see if the paths are getting transferred then if they are you move to rear blower and check for voltage at blower. The main rear blower switch will only function in the rear selection mode on the dash switch so the rear switch is out of the equation., good luck

Rear park lights keep blowing fuse


first mistake you make is to increase the fuse capacity to above that required. You have a short in the circuit and by putting such a large fuse in you run the very real risk of burning the wiring loom. Check the bulb sockets and check that the right bulbs are in the sockets. bulbs come in two styles. one has 2 contact points and is either for 2 filaments (stop and tail) or a earth wire (Plastic light units) and the other is a single contact that earths out through the metal base . If you have the wrong bulb in place the current will short directly across the contacts and the light will not come on and the fuse will blow. Fuses for tail lights will be 5 amp maximun

Honda Accord 2006 turning signal not functioning


First check both front and rear lft side bulbs. Then, I would check the signal relay. I think it is under the dash one the left side. Here is want your are looking for. A new one cost about $12-$15 at most parts stores. Last I would suspect the signal switch assembly on the column. (Perchance you have a trailer hitch plug? If so look there too)

Left turn signals won't flash, Right side works fine. Replaced front and rear turn bulbs (rear was burned out). Bulbs come on fine on the left side, they just won't flash.


Gday mate, we had a problem with another late model vehicle similar to that, the bulb that was put into the reverse light was not exact brand product ( ohmage was slightly wrong ) and fowled up computer, correct bulb in place and disconnect battery to reset K A M ( keep alive memory) problem solved, BEWARE, some vehicles cannot have KAM reset except for dealer computer tethered reboot , just try putting the factory correct bulb(s) in and see how it goes, geoff. hope this helped.

2004 Saab 9.3 Conv Passenger side front & rear fog lights will not work. New bulbs. Why? What to do? Is there a fuse for just those on right side? All other lights work fine.


Sounds like similar problem I had on my older 93 - one side main beam and brake light not working. Turned out to be a problem with the filament testing relay. Got it resoldered and now ok.

Tail lights don't work on 1998 Chevy Silverado.


check the wiring from the tailights back to the fuse panel, it sounds like an open connection. if i recall correctly check under the dash on the drivers side near the fuse panel for a bunch of wires in a bundle and look carefully for a wire or two that are cut/shorted/or seperated, you can also check under the drivers side kick panel by the hood release.

Fuse problems on hyundia lantra 1999


are the rear lights combined? ie sidelamp and brake lamp in one bulb .if so, there is a possibility that the bulb is not sitting correctly in the holder , causing both the side & brake lamp fuses to blow . if they are seperate bulbs you probably have ashort in the sidelamp system somewhere but the brakes could be a switch problem [easy check, find switch ,disconnect wires short across using wire or paperclip switch on ignition and check lights ] if they work the switch is the problem , [check fuse first] if they don't
