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.

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.

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.
open hood look for the light assembley powercords that go into the headlamp..turn right or left to loosen ... you may have to just take a screw driver and remove the cover over the signal light. press in and turn and replace.
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.
there is a flasher for both 4 way & regular turn signals ( check to make sure the bulbs are good
the backs are easy >>> Just step on the brake, If the lights light up the bulbs are good you my have to remove the bulbs one at a time in the front check your ground wires to the lights if everything is good replace the flasher unit if that fails replace the turn signal switch
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
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.
