Question about 1999 Buick Century

Open Question

Right front turn signal keeps burning bulbs. When I replace the bulb the end in the plug is fried and cracked and the receptacle is actually charred. I am currently deployed away from my home and tools. So, what could be causing this problem? I have applied connector gel and also replaced the receptacle. The new receptacle was ruined after 4 weeks. And I have gone thru about 4 bulbs in 4 weeks.

If the plug has corrosion on it there is a possibility that the plug has gone bad or shorted out. If the wires look burnt there is a good chance the plug has been burnt. You can also check to see if you are getting voltage when the switch is on with the bulb out.

Right turn signal possible short


the wire is shorted.

trailer hitch hack job.

collision damage to rear.? wrecked the harness.



why would the flasher be bad, if left side front and rear works perfectly

we use a 15amp circuit breaker to replace the flasher fuse.

then find the short, (beaker keeps popping) when right turns are selected.

is this car under warranty?

did some one put in an illegal larger fuse in this circuit? dont

its a simple shorted line

we have a thing (real edison like) called an ammeter

we can measure the actual short, all look here its 15amps

just as the breaker trips, bingo city

then all we do is start pulling all inline connectors to find the section that is shorted, front or rear.



does that help?:

TURN SIGNALS


Hi

Did you check the fuses for the turn lights? Do the
parking lights work? If the parking lights work then you probably have a
problem either in the switch or in turn signal module thing.
The burned out bulb is what might be causing it not to blink... if one bulb is burned out you gotta replace it, make no difference if front or back,the left blinker will not work if the left front or rear bulb is bad.
same with the right side. if the front right or rear right turn signal
light is burned out it will not work.....get replacing the bulbs.Hope this solves your problem.Please rate me if my solution helped you.

Left turn signals won't flash, Right side works fine. Replaced front and rear turn bulbs (rear was burned out). Bulbs come on fine on the left side, they just won't flash.


Gday mate, we had a problem with another late model vehicle similar to that, the bulb that was put into the reverse light was not exact brand product ( ohmage was slightly wrong ) and fowled up computer, correct bulb in place and disconnect battery to reset K A M ( keep alive memory) problem solved, BEWARE, some vehicles cannot have KAM reset except for dealer computer tethered reboot , just try putting the factory correct bulb(s) in and see how it goes, geoff. hope this helped.

The bulb socket, socket housing or headlight wiring is shorting to ground somewhere, check for bare or burned wiring.

Left blinker flash fast, hit brake left blinker goes out left taillight goes out but both backup lights come on


Usually a fast flashing signal is because one of the bulbs is burned out or shorted out. If the signal and brakes use the same light which many cars do then check the wiring to it and replace bulb. If burns out again then it has a short between the signal switch and the actual light or the brake wiring to it is shorted.

I have a 2002 Chevy S-10. The right rear turn signal doesn't work. Neither does the brake light. The running light works. I replaced the bulb, and still, doesn't work. What could possibly be the problem?...


You probably have a burned or melted bulb socket connector where the bulb actually plugs into the socket and it is preventing the bulb from making contact with the socket connector. Look into the socket and see if you can see the connector recessed or plastic around the connector area higher than the connector. Scrape it away, if so, or carefully bend the connector away from the backing so it will contact the bulb when reinserted. If nothing else, replace the socket.

1998 wrangler turn signal/brake light short


your socket may not be grounded properly, I have seen this before, and the simplest way to fix is change the socket with a new one.Not another used one it may also be bad.
