Hi got ford focus 2001 1.6 now for the problem the left hand rear back light wont come on at all stop light on it works fine any ideas pls could it be the bulb holder tried changing bulb but still no

Are you certain that the correct bulb was installed? You need to look the bulb number up on a chart for the vehicle. Your bulb should have 2 nubs on the base if it's a dual function bulb.
And how exactly did you check the wiring? If you did a visual inspection only and not test it with a voltmeter, then have a mechanic have a look at it. That won't cost much at all.

Can I disconnect battery cables on bmw545i and drive 50 miles to pass emissions teST?

Probably not. Almost all newer cars have to have the battery attached to keep running, once its detached or dies, it will most likely stop running fairly soon, if not right away.

Cant get the hydrolic swaybar to work in the front of bmw545i 2005 just shows a code

Hi jammer. The active sway bar can be inactive for many reasons. The most common reasons are that the fluid level is low in the reservoir and or the steering angle sensor needs to be initialized. What fault code is shown and which system is it in?

My right front turn signal wont work, the dash board light came on telling me i need a new bulb i put one in and it still does'nt work . I checkd all fuses and they are good , me right rear turn l

are you sure that you put the right bulb in? Some of these bulbs look very similar, (like a 3057 and 3157 or 3156) but they are different. A customer came in with this problem and the problem was that they put a bulb with a single filament in when it was supposed to have a dual filament. the bulbs looked the same and they just grabbed them off the shelf instead of asking the parts guy what their vehicle called for.

My tail lights stopped working on my 1988 chevy C-1500. I thought that it might be the bulbs of fuse. I checked the bulbs and they were okay. I checked all the fuses but have no idea which one it would be....

Older trucks are bad about loosing the ground in the back.. You could try finding the ground or splice in a new one... See if the terminals are "hot" If they are fix the grounds.

My 97 Licoln Town car 4 way flashers, turn signals and brake lights(except for the center inside lite) stopped working. Fuses look good and bulbs look okay. When the lights are turned on the front side...

Replace both lights at the back of your car. The fact that you have steady non-flashing lights at the front and no lights at the back is a troubleshooting tool to let you know the back lights are bad.

1993 Ford Escort 4-door: Back-up and license plate lights are out. All fuses checked = okay. All bulbs ohmed out/visual = okay. All other lights are functioning properly (parking, brake, turn, headlight,...

the back-up lights would probably be a bad reverse switch at that point. I'm not sure what could be causing the plate lights if its not fuses or bulbs and all the others are working. I would highly recommend checking your bulbs one more time and look to see if the filaments are smooth or pitted. if they are pitted but otherwise appear to be ok they are in fact burnt out. I have even seen bulbs n that condition ohm out ok but still not work.
