found this discussion which might be helpful:

No surprise at all! Common problem which has been discussed several times on this site.
Basically.....tail light(s) plugs (Pig Tails) were sub-standard and cannot stand the heat of the bulbs. Pull out hear tail light fixtures, remove bulbs from recepticals and check for melting plastic, usually between the black wire (hot wire) and one or more colored wires. If so, cut out old Pig Tail, get a replacement Pig Tail, soder it in (I think about 6 wires), and use electrical shrink wrap around sodered joint, install new bulbs using Di-electric grease in the socket. Test before reinstalling light fixture.

The poster also mentioned something I forgot; use some kind of grease in the sockets any time you have reason to access them.

The dielectric grease he mentioned is best but if you can't find (it is and electronic item, rather than electrical), even petroleum jelly will afford some protection.
I use it on battery clamps and it helps ****** the typical corrosion.
Since most cars use the chassis for ground, even the fasteners that hold in lighting assemblies can lose contact so I always loosen, then retighten them, to ensure decent ground contact.
Check too for corrosion in the light sockets themselves.

Dunno why it is so tough to seal a compartment but our US manufacturers can't seem to get it right.

You have two separate flasher devices on your car. One operates the flashers, and the other, usually located near the fuse area, operates the turn signals. A trip to your local Autozone or Advance Auto Parts, or for that matter most reputable parts house will give the exact location of turnsignal flasher, and they can supply a new one.

SOURCE: Can't figure out how to change the bulb for turn signal on Jeep

it can be a pain because the screws are hidden. first you must remove the parking lamp raise the hood. one screw is visible from the top looking down at the lens...the other is hidden on the bottom side....look between the park laml and the turnsignal housing..a long phillip scew driver can reach it. once you have that removed lookng straight down at the turnsignal assembly you should see 2 screws. remove them and roll the assembly out and away from the body...you should see the bulb holder

you should have two tongues holding the main headlamp assembly, they are towards the inside of the engine compartement, slide them off upwards and wiggle the assembly and should come off, once off you'll have access to you signal light, hope it helps

How do you change the front turn signal on a 2001 pontiac firebird?


Well,I recently had my car in the shop due to someone hitting my bumper and when I got it back the right front turn signal did not work. Luckily I took it to the shop and fixed it because they forgot to put a bulb back in .Geez.They told me they had to take the "front" off. Not sure what that means but it took the 15 minutes to fix it. If you are not sure you can go to Autozone and they can help. I went there not knowing how to replace back bulbs.

I have a 2002 Pontiac Firebird. Hazard lights work. Turn signals were working without clicking sound, now not working. A local parts shop said the problem is the turn signal flasher unit. Where do I locate...


There are two seperate flashers, one for the hazards, and one for the turn signals. They are located behind the lower instrument panel below the steering wheel. Turn flasher should be the one on the right. These are also notorious for the front light sockets to corode or burn out. check their condition and be sure to use connector lube when replacing bulbs there.

1998 pontiac transport/montana has not tail or break lights...turn signals blink fast or not at all. changed rear bulbs and noticed carbon on front build up on front bulbs. Help!


If one of the filaments in the bulbs is burned out, the remaining working lights will flash alot quicker.
Check the bulbs, and replace if the filaments are broken.
If the front bulb has a carbon build up it blown out...change it..
Once the bulbs are replaced your signals should work properly.

How do I change the front turn signal bulb in my 2001 WS6 Trans am? How do I get to it?


Remove two bolts that secure the plastic panel on the underside of the front end of the car, directly below the turn signal housing. The panel will then hinge down allowing you to reach up and access the bulb socket, which has a lock ring that must be compressed while you turn the socket to remove it from the housing. If yours is like mine, the wires are too short to drop below the access panel, so you'll have to reach up with both hands to change the bulb. Also, if yours is like mine, you may see evidence that the bulb gets so hot that the socket shows evidence of burning and/or heat degradation. I'm actually on this site looking for information on a possible recall by Pontiac for this, or at least maybe an upgrade socket.

Front blinkers


I think i had the same issue. When i armed the car alarm, the lights work fine, but when i use the signals they dont work. I changed them out today and found one side had burn marks from shorting out. I used bulb grease on the new ones and have had no issues. The signals blink fine now.
