It might be worth a try to find and clean the ground wire connection to the frame. These some times are in places that get a lot of dirt and salt (if you up north) on them and they'll rust up and make your lights do funny things. It's free and only takes a few minutes and some sand paper once you find where the connection is. Make sure to get the two connecting surfaces nice and shiney. Hope this helps.

My left turn signal was flashing fast. I checked bulb in back left. Turn signal good but bulb below it was out. I changed that one but turn signal still flashing fast. all other bulbs look good. ??


If the front and rear bulbs flash fast also, replace the hazard switch or you could live with it. As they are working. If one doesn't work, check grounds. I just run a new ground, much easier than cutting open the harness to find the break.

Right front side turn signal does not work replaced all bulbs and checked fuses headlight flashers work when hazards are on front to back except driverside turn signal ,in dash right stays solid left


I don't believe it would be a bad ground for just one light. It could be a wire, a socket connector, or the bulb socket itself. See if the wire has power at the socket when signaling left, with key on. If there is power, probably a bad socket or connector. If no power, check for power coming from flasher-the wire going to front left, or driver's side. If you have power from the flasher, but nothing at the socket, the wire has probably broken.
Good luck.

My right front turn signal wont work, the dash board light came on telling me i need a new bulb i put one in and it still does'nt work . I checkd all fuses and they are good , me right rear turn l


are you sure that you put the right bulb in? Some of these bulbs look very similar, (like a 3057 and 3157 or 3156) but they are different. A customer came in with this problem and the problem was that they put a bulb with a single filament in when it was supposed to have a dual filament. the bulbs looked the same and they just grabbed them off the shelf instead of asking the parts guy what their vehicle called for.

I have a 92 chevy s10 and my front passenger turn signal has went out and soon after my rear driver side turn signal and running light has went out. I have tried swapping the bulbs that work to the ones...

Click on the link.
This is for turn signals. Get at the turn signal switch. See the purple wire, L terminal on top of turn signal switch in diagram, that should go hot with key on, use jumper wire from that terminal to one of the wires on bottom of turn signal switch in diagram, those are, front/rear, left/right turn signals. If the turns signals work properly with the jumper, but, other wise don't, the problem should be the turn signal switch. If it still doesn't work properly, you would have to check wiring circuits.
Sometimes a faulty ground can cause weird problems. Sometimes the bulb doesn't make good contact in the bulb socket? Try putting a little pressure on the bulb in the bulb socket, see if it starts working?

Left rear turn signal does't work but blinker in car blinks rapidly, front left turn signal does work


Sounds like a burnt out bulb, that fast blink is to tell you a bulb needs replaced.

How do I remove the front turn signal assembly so I can replace the bulb?


Your turn signal bulb is a 1157A or 1156 bulb (either will work), and usually inserts into a connector
that unscrews 1/4 turn counterclockwise, and comes out of a headlight-turn signal assembly on the
front of the vehicle.
Try: opening the hood and turning the bulb holder 1/4 turn counterclockwise, then withdraw the
bulb base and installed bulb. replace old bulb by turning it 1/4 turn counterclockwise and
pulling it out (the 1157A and 1156 bulbs are bayonet-base). Install the new bulb by inserting
into the socket (properly aligning the 2 pins on the base of the bulb with the channels for them
in the socket), and the rotating the bulb 1/4 turn once inserted.
Now - test the new turn signal bulb before putting it back together - this insures that the installation
of the bulb into the socket correctly aligned the (2) contacts in the base of the bulb socket.
Then: insert socket into headlight-turn signal assembly and rotate clockwise 1/4-turn to install.

Summary: remove socket by rotating 1/4-turn counterclockwise and pulling out.
remove 1157A or 1156 bulb from socket by rotating bulb 1/4-turn counterclockwise and
pulling it out
installation is reverse of removal.

Front turn signal


If only one side is not operating properly in front usually the rear signal on that side will blink rapidly. Generally this indicates a bulb is burned out. If a new bulb does not fix the problem there could be a problem with the ground or the socket. First guess - try replacing the bulb.
