93 nissan hardbody park light wiring

I'm replacing the sidemarker/parking light, and the wire clip on the truck side is clipped off so I only have two black wires. I need to get it inspected today so no time track down a replacement clip. For now I just want to hardwire it bypassing the clip with the wires from the old broken lens. Does it matter which wire goes to which side as they're not marked? All I have is a test light. Please help.

    I tried the light both ways and could not tell a diff. Since the light bulb is not marked and fits in either way, the polarity of the wires going to the bulb shouldn't matter either. It works though. No blown fuses or smoldering wires... yet.

I have a 2003 GMC Envoy XL and the driver's side front parking and marker lights don't work although the signal light does. Both of the marker lights were blown and one of the prones in the parking lamp...


If you have a test light, you can check for power at the light sockets and connectors. If you have power, you can connect the alligator clip on the test light to the positive side of the battery and test for a faulty ground...Good luck!

Inspection

Inspect for the correct routing of the spark plug wires. Improper routing may cause cross-firing. Inspect each wire for any signs of cranks or splits in the wire. Inspect each plug wire boot for tearing, piercing, arcing, carbon tracking or a corroded terminal.
If there is any corrosion, carbon tracking or arcing indicated on a plug wire boot or terminal, both the plug wire and component it was connected to should be replaced.

Replace parking light on 2006 beetle


Rear parking lamp assembly (2006 New Beetle) is held in the bumper with a spring clip. I removed the assembly using a flat screwdriver to very gently pry out of the bumper. The clip is on the outboard side of the assembly, so you must pry from the outboard side using great caution to not mar or scratch the paint. The inboard side "hooks" to the bumper and slides outward once the clip clears the bumper on the other end. The bulb and socket can be removed by pulling outward from the assembly.

2006 Monte Carlo


Here's how to override the shift lock on a 2006 Monte Carlo. First, remove the top of the shift console by pulling up on the plastic piece directly in front of the hinged cover. This is the piece that has the cup holders molded into it and it is held in place by 4 clips (i.e. it will pop back into place with no tools).

Next, shine a flashlight down into the console to the right of where the shift lever passes through (passenger's side). You'll see a wiring clip with 4 or 5 wires going into it. Directly behind this clip you can see a metal shaft with a flared top that looks like a button. This is the shift lock override button. Reach in behind the wiring clip with your right hand and press this button in. With the engine running, hold the button in with your right hand, press on the brake, and shift out of park with your left hand.

Now you can drive the car to your mechanic (or to your own garage) to find out why the shift lock solenoid is not working. On mine it was obvious. A wire going into that clip near the override button came loose and there was no power to the shift lock solenoid. I removed the clip, reattached the wire, and replaced the clip. Problem solved, fixed for free!
