Yesterday i had my dash board ripped out to get heater core replaced, and since then it has not worked. Could a wire gotten pinched or would that have anything to do with the problem?

I have a 2004 Ford F150 FX4 with a tail light problem?


I had a similar problem when my original bulb burned out and I attempted to replace it. Found out the bulb I bought to replace it worked as a turn signal and brake light but not a tail light. Make sure you're using the. Perfect replacement bulb. Most bulbs now are doubled and tripled in functions so if yours is triple but you have a double bulb it won't light up your tail light. Start there

2004 Ford F150 passenger tail light grounding point?


First look under truck for ground straps that go from frame to bed to see if one rotted or fell off. Bed usually has at least one ground strap. What is weird is that if no ground at all neither side would work. If light socket has 3 wires coming to it then ground could also be coming in through harness from far away. Yours is odd because usually ground is same for both sides. If you have no other choice find the two wires with power (you said you did this already) and cut the third (ground) and put a crimp on wire eye that you can then screw to body with sheet metal screw. Before you do that take bulb out and look for spot in bulb socket that is ground point and see if corroded or broken off. You may need new bulb socket.

Where is on 1987 pontiac 6000 are the bulbs for turn signals How do I get to them? & or the flasher ? Is it in the fuse box?


The turn signals at the rear share the same bulb, same filament on the bulb even, as the brake lights. So if you have brake lights, the rear turn signal bulbs are good. If I recall, you access the rear bulbs from inside the trunk, and pretty easy to change bulbs. Look for a panel or trim piece in the trunk that covers the light bulb assemblies. You turn the bulb sockets a quarter turn counter-clockwise and pull them out, then you can replace the bulbs. They are two filament bulbs-one filament for the park lights (tail lights) and one filament that serves for brakes and turn signals together.
The flasher unit is a small round cylinder, I don't believe it was in the fuse box, but located up under the dash, close to the steering column. The hazard flasher unit was also up under there and looks the same. Look for them on a bracket near or by the steering column, possibly one on each side of the steering column To find the turn flasher, turn your hazard switch on. The little round unit that is clicking-you may hear it or feel it click with your finger on it-is the hazard flasher. The turn flasher will be the one that is not clicking. A little round cylinder is how you identify it.

Start with checking your tail light bulb if the front one is working. If it isnt the rear bulb its the flasher itself.

Tail lights and dash lights come on when you push the brake


You could have one of two problems here. Firstly if you are getting a christmas tree effect on rear lamp assy ie dull glow from all the lights ,, It's most likely a bad earth/ground connection to lamp,,Secondly if anybody has changed rear bulbs or attempted to fix the problem may have inserted a single contact (21W) indicator/turn signal bulb into the Twin contact brake/tail light socket in error . one bulb (21W) has oposite located pin lugs on side of bulb the double contact brake tail bulb (21/5W) has offset pins. Good luck

NO PROBLEM TURN ON THE RIGHT BLINKER THEN WALK AROUND THE CAR MAKE SURE FRONT AND REAR BULBS ARE FLASHING... IF YOU HAVE A BULB OUT YOU WILL NOT OFFER ENOUGH OF A LOAD TO THE FLASHER... WILL CAUSE IT TO FLASH FAST... IF OK THEN MAKE SURE THE PROPER BULB NUMBER ON BULBS AND MAKE SURE CORRECT BULBS USED IN VEHICLE.... IF OK CHANGE FLASHER

Do you own a test light? Check for power at wires behind socket? Clean socket good , check contact spots for bulb & clean any rusty side of the socket with emery cloth, or sandpaper, for good contact also.
