How do I change the turn signal bulb on my 1993 dodge dynasty


Front or rear? If its the rear light, you should check inside your trunk. Move any liner that may be over the light housings, and look for fasteners, usually plastic wing nut types, that you can remove and lift out the whole tail light assembly. Once out, you can change the individual bulbs.

If it's the front turn signal, I think that's part of the headlight assembly, and you may have to remove the whole assembly to get at the bulbs. Look for screws in the top cross member, and in the panel next to the radiator to remove the assembly.

How to replace the rear signal light


The whole light assembly comes out and you can remove the bulb assembly from behind. There will be a couple of screws accessible from the trunk compartment behind the concealment panels.

1996 chevrolet C1500. The back left turning signal/brakes light is not working. Front left turning signal works fine.(Faster than usual). The bulb comes on when the headlights are on(steady), but does not...


The bulb for the turn signal/brake light is a double filament bulb. It will come on with the lights on, but should light the second filament, making it brighter, with the brakes applied or turn signal on. It could just be a bad bulb, but one common problem on these years of truck is the rear light circuit board and requires the whole assembly to be replaced. Start by checking the bulb first though.
Hope this helps. Good luck!

I need to replace the front turn signal light socket on a 2000 Chevy Venture, but i don't know how to get it out and i can't find a replacement. How do i get it out?


There are detailed instructions in the the manual. If you do not have a manual, here is how to do it (directions assume removing drivers-side headlight assembly and viewing the area from the front of the van): Remove the thumb screw on the left side of the headlight assembly as well as the thumb screw on the top of the head light assembly. The third thumb screw simply anchors the turn-signal assembly to the head light assembly. Initially, just loosen that screw. The whole assembly is now loose but still held in by two plastic posts on the bottom of the headlight assembly and two plastic posts on the end of the turn-signal assembly closest to the fender/wheel area. Pull the whole assembly kind of up, out, and down. It takes a bit of juggling but it will come out. Once the whole assembly is out you can separate the turn-signal assembly from the head light assembly and put the headlight assembly back in place. To separate the assemblies remove the third thumb screw (if its too tight to remove by hand you will need a Torx screw driver of size T-30; if you don't have a Torx a small flathead screw can work); also, you will notice the hidden clip that is the final anchor holding the turn-signal assembly to the head light assembly. Use a flat-head screw driver to release it. Now the units should be separated. To remove the turn signal bulb socket from the turn-signal assembly, simply turn it counter-clockwise while pressing down on the safety clip and pull it out of the back of the turn-signal assembly. The owners manual lists the type of bulb. It should be an amber 3157. The bulb pulls straight out of the socket.

Replace the bulb. Place the socket back into the turn-signal assembly (turn it clockwise until the safety clip snaps). Replace the Headlight assembly (two thumb screws and the two plastic alignment posts anchor it), but do not tighten the screws until the turn-signal assembly is in place. Replace the turn-signal assembly by first aligning the plastic posts and then anchoring it to the head light assembly with the third thumb screw. Make sure everything is aligned properly and tight all the thumb screws. An experienced person can probably make this change, start to finish, in 15 minutes. First timers will probably take 30 minutes as it takes some time to understand how the designers anchored everything.

Good luck and thank you for using Fixya

Change front passanger blinker


Open the hood and look for a small screw or bolt holding the signal light assembly on by the fender.
Remove this and pull just the signal light assembly straight forward.
Not the whole headlight assembly.
Twist and turn the bulb socket to remove the light from the rear of the light assembly.
Check the # and color of your bulb and get a replacement.
Push in and turn to remove the bulb.

Turn signal


look at the plastic cover of the light. see if there are screws on the front, remove the screws and the bulb will be exposed.

if your signal light is a whole assembly, you can remove the whole assembly by unscrewing the holding screws and sliding the assembly. then twist the bulb holder that is inserted in the back of the assembly and the bulb would be exposed.

tnx 4 using fixya,
