2002 Dodge Grand Caravan front left parking light does not work when headlights are on but works when you turn the turn signal on. Bulb is fine also fuses


I think your parking light and turn signal use the same bulb with two filaments (if they are in the same socket/fixture). One filament is probably burned out. You'll need to replace the double-filament bulb.

How to remove and replace headlight bulbs in a 2008 chevy.HHR


The trick to replacing all new bulbs on cars now it removing the whole lens. There will be a couple of screws holding it in when looking from above in the engine compartment. Once you loosen the screws it is not as if it comes out easily. It will take a little extra oomph to get it out. once out it goes back in very easily. When the lens is out you can access the bulb very easily.

How to replace passenger turn signal bulb


The side marker light must be removed in order to get at the turn signal light.
There are two screws holding the side marker light which is situated above the turn signal.
Open the hood.
Remove the phillips head screw at the top of the side marker light.
Using a long #2 Phillips screwdriver, remove the screw on the outside of the side marker light. This can be seen by looking between the lower side of the side marker light and the top side of the turn signal.
The side marker can be moved.
The turn signal has one screw on the top of the fixture that must be removed.
Slide out the turn signal fixture. There is a small feature on the lower front corner of the turn signal fixture that you must note to properly reinstall the turn signal.
In order to get to the bulb, rotate the bulb socket 1/4 turn CW or CCW. The bulb socket is loose.
The bulb is simply pressed into the socket.
Not sure of the type, but it can be found at your locale auto parts store.
The bulb is used in several places on the 1994 GC, so get apacket with two, if possible.
Assembly in reverse. Be careful not to overtighten the screws as they are replaced

How to replace the headlights


I assume you're referring to the bulbs and not the entire assembly:

First, you have to remove the turn signal assembly. For this, you need a small star shaped screwdriver and remove the 1 screw holding the turn signal in place. Pull straight out and remove the bulbs from the signal assembly by turning the sockets about 1/4 turn. Set that aside.
Second, there's 3 bolts that will be holding the headlight assembly in place. One is accessable from the engine compartment with the hood up. The other two are located under the headlight. (All of them face the front of the car). Remove all three and the headlight will be able to swing out, giving you access to the sockets and bulbs. Remove the bulb connector from the bulb first, then twist the bulb retaining ring and pull the bulb straight out after the ring is off.
Reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.

If you're looking to completely remove the entire headlight assembly, it's the same process, but the piece that lets the headlight swing out (instead of coming off completely) must be removed. It's a simple plastic ball and socket swivel. Just tug hard and the ball will come loose from the socket.

How to change a headlight bulb in a saturn aura?


Access to change the headlamp bulbs is through the wheel well. The recommended method is to remove the front tire and then the plastic inner fender liner. Once removed, you'll have easy (more or less) access to the rear of the headlamp housing.

Need to replace both front turn signal light bulbs on a 2000 mercury grand marquis. How?


Pop the hood, there is a tray that sits over the radiator, if the locks are still intact, twist them until the tray comes free, (There should be 3 plastic locks) remove the tray. Now you have access to the lights. There is an orange plug on both sides (L&R Headlights). Turn the plug until it frees up, then slide plug out of headlamp fixture. Then simply pull the bulb out and replace with new bulb.

How do you replace aheadlight light bulb ina olds


Remove plastic Grill (6 screws)
Remove Turn Signal Light (3 Screws)
This allows you to access the 4 screws that hold in the Headlight. Remove these and then remove the headlight. Once out, then just turn the bulb and remove. Be careful with the plastic clip that holds the bulb to the wiring harness. Since the car is old, the plastic will easily break.

Suggest changing the clip fastener, or failing that, find some adaptation.

Brake & Turn signals do not work when headlights are on


The problem is what they call the printed circuit in the tail light. Remove the twist off light bulb connector. You will see the contacts inside and that the plastic is warped. You can purchase the entire fixture for about $350 if you replace it yourself. A dealer will charge about $450 per tail light fixture. Chrysler won't admit they have a problem that they should have issued a recall for. The problem is that if your stoplights are out, you may be involved in a rear end collision. Chrysler doesn't care. What I did was purchase a right angle tailight bulb holder and standard #1197 stoplight bulbs from advance auto supply. You have to trim the existing socket a little and splice the wires for the new light socket, but it beats paying $900 for replacing the two fixtures. I fixed mine about a year ago and haven't had any problems.
