Replace the light socket. you can get them at your auto parts store. Get some heat shrink tube at the same time. It seals better than tape on the joints. Hope this helps.

Why would my 2002 Dodge Durango passenger side tail lights work but the brake and blinker do not? Bulbs are the same and it has a single fuse. All are good. What would keep the blinker or brake light...


I had a similar problem, you might want to try changing out the BWD - Relay - Multi-Use Part #R4823. It is located under the Dash, beside the Steering Column. I purchased one from Canadian Tire for $25.00 b71e50cc-8a90-4fe6-8fc0-e129852746b5.jpg

Rear park lights keep blowing fuse


first mistake you make is to increase the fuse capacity to above that required. You have a short in the circuit and by putting such a large fuse in you run the very real risk of burning the wiring loom. Check the bulb sockets and check that the right bulbs are in the sockets. bulbs come in two styles. one has 2 contact points and is either for 2 filaments (stop and tail) or a earth wire (Plastic light units) and the other is a single contact that earths out through the metal base . If you have the wrong bulb in place the current will short directly across the contacts and the light will not come on and the fuse will blow. Fuses for tail lights will be 5 amp maximun

Left turn signal T/S/ socket melting around contacts some_left front signal light not flashing (but on), rear left IS flashing_auto store sold me lubricant/grease to coat on bulb end and in socket worked...


If the bulb socket is melted you will want to replace the socket then use the socket grease (diaelectric) to keep the bulb socket clean of dirt and moisture. The diaelectric grease will help disipate the heat also.
If the bulb base was melted, you will want to clean the socket thuroughly and make sure no plastic has melted on the contacts causing a bad electrical contact.

My 199 Ford Expedition-Left turn signal and brake light in rear does not work. I had the buld changed last Sat. And it was working for almost a week...But now I was told by a friend that is not working...


It is very common for the light bulb socket to become minorly burned. You need to replace the socket. They are less than 10$. Hope this helps. TJ

1998 olds intrigue drivers side signal light keeps burning


It happened to my 98 Intrigue. It stopped as soon as I changed the sockets. It is very simple to do this, just pull it out the the plug from the connector about 4 inches from the socket. I got used ones at the junk yard, 2 bucks a piece. Been working fine for almost 2 years.

Lamp out alarm keeps sounding


probably one of the tabs on a light bulb heated up and melted, causes contact to be lost.just remove lights and check each bulb for oblivious melting and bend contact out,away from plastic on the bulb to get a better contact on the inside of the socket. happened too me in the rear tailights.

Right turn signal flashes too fast


Usually this is caused by a burnt and melted bulb socket (look inside the socket at the bulb contacts), you have to replace it with a new-revised bulb socket, which entails cutting the wiring harness and splicing a new socket. This is a factory deffect which GM refuses to acknowledge.
