97 Corolla taillamps are notorious for having poor ground issues. Make sure that your taillamp ground wires are good, clean & tight.

Where is the electronic turn signal flasher on a 2008 Ford Taurus X, Limited


That Uhaul harness is the first thing to check. Next would be the ground wire/s at the rear lamp. Your problem is that when the head lights are off, the rear light is grounded the the headlights(no power to the headlights). When you turn the head lights on, you loose the ground because the headlights over power the rear ground. Your flasher is not the problem. Use the OHM part of the meter(lowest setting) to check for ground. Anything above 5 Ohms is a wire replacement.

Wiring diagram running light, need wiring diagram for 2006 dodge dakota ,right tail light is out but brakeand turn signal works


With a test light check if you have power there with lights on and with lights off, compare left side with right side as far as location in the tail lamp plug for the tail lamp park lights.Trace the harness back to the left side underneath usual corrosion in this area.

I just bought a 1983nissan 280zx 2+2 non turbo.drivers side rear running light ot wing But drivers side turn signal is checked bulb fuses ect. also oil gage volt and clock work sometimes and sometimes


You said same socket, so it couldn't be a bad ground or then neither light would work. And you also said there is no power on the tail light wire at the socket? There should be voltage on the wire with park lights on. Find the rear tail harness. Somewhere there at the rear of the car the park light wire (the tail lights, running lights, all the same) will splice off to both sides of the car. You have passenger side lights, so you know the signal is good that far. Somewhere between the splice and the driver's side, the power is lost, maybe right at the splice. So find the harness, it will be either under the car along the frame, or inside the trunk. That's an old effin car, Howard. Are you sure you want to nurse it back to life? lol. Buy a Haynes manual for it - it will save you money in repairs. Good wiring diagrams, too.
Are those gauges in the instrument panel, and not aftermarket? If they are in the dash, I may know what it might be. I have an '87 Sentra. Fuel gauge, temperature gauge, and warning lights, and turn signals would only work intermittently. Car would start and run, but those things- sometimes not, or they would come on way after down the road. I traced it down to a faulty ignition relay in a relay block above the instrument fuse panel. The run wire out of the ignition switch trips this relay on, and it sends power to a portion of the fuse panel that has the fuses for the gauges and turn signal lights. Replacing the relay was the answer-they always work now. Your gauges may be similar, but almost as likely a loose connection somewhere.

No you cannot just connect the 3rd brake light to the left/right brake light, chances are they also function independently as turn signals. The type of trailer wiring harness you speak of is usually installed by unplugging the wiring harness and plugging that connector inline. The two sides of that harness should plug back together.

Turn signal left blinker and driver running lights all rear don't come on. Bulbs replace and fuses are all good. It seems to be a wiring problem. Is there a diagram for the wire harness and how check...


Hello Greg. Almost definitely you have a poor ground in the rear of your van due to corrosion. Get under the van in the problem area and trace the ground wire to the frame. Generally you will find that the area is corroded. Unscrew or unbolt the ground wire and remove the crud with a piece of emery cloth. clean up both the end of the ground wire and the frame itself, get it all down to bare metal. Then reassemble. regards, Joe

Both rear turn signal lights flash


Why don't you just cut 2 wires where you know they're good, add 2 new wires, and run them to the back, and by-pass whatever the problem area is, and your done?

Driver side signals only work when headlights are OFF


What may have happened is either the headlights wiring or the parking lights wiring somewhere along the wiring fused to the left turn signals wiring. Depending on if the turn signals go on when you put the parking lights on or the headlights on.

If the signals come on when you turn on the headlights than you only need to locate the light green wire that comes off the left turn signal harness.

Next follow that wire the entire way back to the firewall looking for another wire fused to that wire as you go.

If there are no signs of this you need to continue looking on the other side of the firewall all the way back to the turn signal and hazard flasher unit which is a black box that connects to a black harness located next to a grey harness behind the knee bolster.

But if the signals come on when you turn on the parking lights than you will also need to check the wiring from the rear left signal and follow that light green wire all the way back to the turn signal and hazard flasher unit.

This should fix your problem, but if not than your problem may lay within the the wiring between the turn signal/hazard switches and the turn signal and hazard flasher unit.

Also you may have a burnt circuit in the junction block. This block is where the light green from the rear left signal and front left signal meet. Don't have a description but if you cannot find it let me know and I will go out to the yard and look myself and let you know.
