Firebird tail lights

It is a ground problem. When you turn on your headlights, they are sharing the same ground that your brake and T/S lights are using. Check all ground connections to the body from all headlight and taillight wiring are connected and tight. If it doesn't affect your taillights, it may be in your T/S switch. Check your ground connections first.

The running lights and turn signals don't work on my 1995 buick Skylark. the headlights and taillights work it i turn them on though. i checked fuses but they seem to be fine

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, please check the bulbs for it can be blown. If the bulbs are good then it can be just a blown fuse for the tail light.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one

MY 1996 buick skylark olympic edition leaks water on to the driver's side floor. I have replaced the heater core.Is it possible it is a hidden leak at the base of front window or under cowl trim of some...

Taste the water and if it is sweet it is coolant leaking from the heater core. If it does not taste sweet it is a leak somewhere else. What you suspect is very possible. Start by making sure the drain hose is clear an not clogged. Then check the window gasket. A water hose left running on the window slightly will tell you where the leak is coming from.

No tools.. Its a twist in Bulb from the back side of the light under the hood.. Its either a 9004 or 9006 and Possibly a 9007 Bulb that you can get anywhere.. Un plugh it.. Take the lock ring off by unscrewing it.. Tah DA ! Now sometimes.. a battery might be in the way.. But deal with that accordingly
