Question about 1993 Nissan Pickup

1 Answer

The wires don't go like that

The wires going into the bulb fixture are even, and the contacts to the bulb are on either side. Only the new wires are marked. Mine are already cut and can not match them up. I need a solution and the most practical tool I have here is a test light. ???

Brake lights go on but when headlights are on and i press the brake they go off the brake lights go offf

Brad V's "bad ground" is most likely cause. I'd start investigating with the tail lights. (Not the headlights, but they may also be an issue.) Confirm all bulbs on both sides are good. That includes running lights, brake lights, turn signals and reverse. Some bulbs may have dual-function, the 3157 bulb in the J2K is one that serves stop-light (brake) and tail/running lights. Replace if suspect. Make sure the bulbs are mounted correctly. Rust can cause a poor ground so you might have to replace the socket or fixture if it is grounded to the fixture. By any chance do the turn signals also have issues? Or the emergency flash switch bulbs?

Brake light and tail light out on same side. Replaced bulb in brake light but still neither still works.

Look at the wiring harness that runs to your tail light fixture. make sure that the harness connections have not loosened. check harness casing and bulb iixtures for breaks or corrosion... sounds like you have a short going on. with the light switch on, try wiggling the wiring where it goes into the fixture. if the light flickers at all while doing this you have a short going on in the fixture and it may need to be replaced.

Brake light passenger side is out. After changing the bulb, will not light. Wires look in good shape, not corrosion or breaks. While putting the fixture back into place, quickly came on then went off...

The problem is suspected to be the 'contacts' at the base of the bulb socket/holder/fixture - poor contact. If the contact point overheated and it melted (then 'sank' into its holder/fixture, then replace the bulb socket.

What do I need to do if my overhead dome light does not work and the bulb has been changed often even though the bulb was not burnt out. I cannot get it to work at any of the 3 positions more than 4 days.

remove the lens cover. take out any screws (then "pop" it out if necc) and lower the light fixture itself. use a simple test light or volt meter to check for 12 volts to one of the wires when switched to the "on" position. if you have volatge replace the fixture. if not, trace the wire back to its switched source. check any wire at each end for continuity with an ohm meter. any reading besides 1.0 (open circuit - a shorted circuit would be blowing fuse repeatedly) is ok. the circuit goes downstream from battery feed at the fuse box, to relays and/or fuses, then on-off switches (including door closed switches) then the feed wire to the dome light, the fixture itself, then the bulb. wiring diagrams with color coding are almost impossible to get off the net for free. you'll need a $20+ repair manual if it goes that far. but cheer up, 90+% of the time it's the fixture. a quick and easy fix.

How do I replace my license plate bulbs?

Simple fix. From the exterior of the car locate the two lights. Each light fixture has a tab on one side. just push the tab toward the middle of the fixture. The side with the tab will come out but the other side will remain in place until the entire fixture pops out. By this I mean it doesn't pull straight out. You may have to wiggle it a little but don't force it out. After the fixture is out just twist the bulb out (I think a quarter turn) and put the new one in. To put the fixture back in you need to set the side without the tab first and gingerly push the side with the tab back in until you hear the click that lets you know its locked in. Now you're done! When you go to change your bulb you'll see how easy it is so I apologise for the long winded description. (:

How do I change the passenger side headlight bulb on 2001 Altima

Open up the hood, and go in behind the fixture where the light is located. Sometimes there is an access panel on top. Open it and reach down inside and grab the bulb’s socket. Twist the socket a quarter turn counter clockwise, and pull out the socket. Grab the bulb, and pull it straight out. To replace the new bulb, never touch it with your bare fingers, as this will greatly shorten the bulb's life, if it even work's at all. Use a tissue or something else in that order to handle the new bulb. Push the new bulb into the socket, put the socket back into the housing, and twist a quarter turn clockwise to secure the socket into the fix.Seems that you have to remove the coolant bottle(two screws), and also the unscrew the washer fluid bottle, after that you can reach the socket that holds the bulb. There is a wire that holds the bulb in. if you loosen the screw you can tip up the wire and be careful to leave it in place...also the long side of the wire seems to connect to ground wire for the light...

How do I replace a Tail Light on a 2002 Honda CRV

Pretty simple just remove the light fixture then you just have to remove the bulbs from the fixture and wire assembly remains intact then just fit the same bulbs in to the new light fixture without removing the wire assembly.

Pontiac montana turn signal flashing too fast

found this discussion which might be helpful:
No surprise at all! Common problem which has been discussed several times on this site.
Basically.....tail light(s) plugs (Pig Tails) were sub-standard and cannot stand the heat of the bulbs. Pull out hear tail light fixtures, remove bulbs from recepticals and check for melting plastic, usually between the black wire (hot wire) and one or more colored wires. If so, cut out old Pig Tail, get a replacement Pig Tail, soder it in (I think about 6 wires), and use electrical shrink wrap around sodered joint, install new bulbs using Di-electric grease in the socket. Test before reinstalling light fixture.
The poster also mentioned something I forgot; use some kind of grease in the sockets any time you have reason to access them.

The dielectric grease he mentioned is best but if you can't find (it is and electronic item, rather than electrical), even petroleum jelly will afford some protection.
I use it on battery clamps and it helps ****** the typical corrosion.
Since most cars use the chassis for ground, even the fasteners that hold in lighting assemblies can lose contact so I always loosen, then retighten them, to ensure decent ground contact.
Check too for corrosion in the light sockets themselves.

Dunno why it is so tough to seal a compartment but our US manufacturers can't seem to get it right.
