Front turn signal 1990 Buick Century

Help me please, the right front turn signal bulb bulb is broken off on , now just two wires sticking out. I looked under the hood and cannot figure out how in the heck to get to the turn signal bulb, seems impossible to get to that corner, so that I can get it out an replace that bulb.
Any suggestions? I sure hate to pay for labor for this minor job which seems to be not so minor.

thanks so much,
angela

Hi Angela, what you need to do is look under the hood and basically locate the backside of the light that your wanting to change the bulb in. You'll see a wiring harness going to that area. Give the plug a twist and pull the old bulb out.

On my grandmother's '98 Buick Century, the right front signal stopped working. Rear right signal blinking fast. I have replaced the front amber bulb and socket and still have same issue.


Could be a wiring problem, or the turn signal switch.
You could check the wiring with a meter, and also by using the emergency flashers. Those use a different circuit from the turn signals on most cars. If the light works using the 4-way flashers, the problem is probably the turn signal switch.
You need to know if the socket has power and ground when the lamp should be flashing.

Fast flashing turn signals


I would change out the turn signal bulb on the right front. A blown bulb can cause the fast flash issue. The signals staying on is not related to the bulb being blown. That is most likely a problem with the multifunction switch, the knob you use to signal.

1992 Buick Century turn signal


You may have some corrosion in the socket where you plug in the bulb. This would cause the lights to not blink. Put the turn signal on, and check the lights, front and back. Are then on, and not blinking, or are they not on at all? If the bulbs are good, and they aren't on, it's the bulb socket problem. Get fine sandpaper, fold it around a pencil eraser, sand off any gunk or corrosion inside the socket. It could also be a faulty ground wire, check for a loose wire at the light assembly. front and back.countrycurt0

1998 Buick Century Signal Issue


Remove the bulbs one at a time and check for dirt and corrosion at the contacs inside the sockets.The corrosion will cause higher than normal resistence and will make the signal to flash rapidly.As this only happens to the right side only check the right side.
