Question about 2003 Lincoln Aviator
I understand. Look at the tailight lenses and see if there are screws on the lenses or not. If yes, then unscrew the lenses and remove the bulbs. Do 1 at a time and reinstall each bulb before doing the next one.
Get a can of WD-40, a rag and check the socket and bulb contacts for corrosion. Spray the socket with WD and wipe off excess.
If the tail lenses do not have screws, the access is behind the lenses, inside the vehicle. You would twist the socket to remove the harness and then remove the bulb. Repeat as instructed with screw type lenses.
Same thing for the front signals. Hopefully you would find 1 bad socket and WD has cleaned it. If socket is too corroded there are replacements in the "HELP" accessories section at many Autoparts stores. Then it is a simple matter of clipping off the bad socket and replacing it.
Do not panic about that necessity. It is actually a delicate process which is better handled by small female hands anyway. "Remember Rosy the Riveter". There is a way to use a test meter to substitute for a fuse. It is called an Ohmmeter and costs about $10. But do not worry about that yet. Many problems are solved with WD 40.
