It might be the control stalk....or it might be a bad ground up front.

You can test this with a simple test light. Remove one of the bulbs and with the test light grounded touch the test tip to each of the sockets contacts.
If you have the blinkers on then one of the contacts should light the test light. If not, you may have a short before the sockets....which may lead back to your control stalk. It just seems unlikely if your rear signals are still blinking. So the short might be in the harness betweent he lights and the stalk....which is tough since most of the harness is buried in the engine bay.

Good luck and be careful!

Right signal dont work


Did you try replacing the bulb? After doing that check your fuses. If all else fails consider buying a replacement headlamp assembly. Or it may be a problem with your column switch.

I have a 1989 Buick Park avenue. A month ago all of the back lights stopped working. Tail lights, brake lights, reverse lights.


Check your fuses underneath the drivers side steering wheel. Flip the plastic cover over and there will be a diagram showing the fuse that controls the taillights/stoplamp. Pull the fuse out and replace it with the same number fuse and your taillights and brake lights will work again. If the fuses are ok, pull each taillight bulb out and replace it with a new bulb. Sometimes when one light bulb fails, all of them will fail.
