Sounds like you are on the right track...as any corrosion is in the socket...the bulb does not make adequate contact...with the bulb removed, spray the inside of the socket with PB Blaster...after a few moments thoroughly clean scrape, and wipe out the inside of the socket...with extra effort this usually works...also when re-inserting the new bulb be sure to use bulb lubricant...this will help to reduce the corrosion from coming back...you can completely replace the socket if necessary...from a salvage yard, or you can purchase new at the dealer...The salvage yard socket is probably $5. the dealer socket is about $25...Hope this helps.

Hey I literally just today had the same problem, put a new bulb in the light was on but did not blink!!!! SUPER EASY SOLUTION, you simply have the bulb in too far. I gently pulled mine out a tiny bit and it started working fine... guarantee that's all that's happening to you!!!

Changing passenger side turn signal for 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix. There are a few bolts I could undo, but I'm afraid I'll break the car. The manual doesn't really give good directions, so...


There are two phillips head screws on the fog light/turn signal, unscrew them both and pull the unit out, the blinker connector is located on the back side... twist it out counter clockwise and blam! There's the bulb, slide a new one in, and make sure she works.

How do i change the rear turn signal on a 2005 pontiac gran prix


you should be able to access the bulbs from inside the trunk.
Pull the carpet back to expose the back side of the light cluster.
You will not have to remove the entire plastic lens , just the little bulb inside.

I need to replace my front right blinker on my 05 pontiac grand prix


I am assuming you mean the light bulb if that's the case under the car there is a bolt that holds a plastic protection device on remove the bolt then stick your hand up into the hole turn the lock ring counter clock wise pull the lock ring and bulb and wire assembly out and replace the bulb and put back in the same way it came out. It takes the flat bulb that you can buy at any auto parts store.

Front driver turn signal quit. changed bulb, worked for short time, then quit. bulb OK. passenger side quit 1-2 months later. bulb OK. neither front emergency flasher work. automatic daytime front lights...


Check for head light (daytime)relay to be bad,this might have to do with the turn signals also,if the turn signals on this car,also have running lights in them,If this relay is not bad,replace the body control module.

Hazards and blinkers not working


There are separate fuses for the turn signals and blinkers, but you should check both of them just to see if they're good.

You may have a burnt out turn signal bulb as well. I know that this sounds like an obvious answer, but a single bulb can sometimes disable the entire system because of the way that some flashers operate.

You could also have a defective turn signal/hazard light flasher. This is located under the dash board on the driver's side between the steering column and the door. You have to remove the sound insulation/kick panel (the cover on the bottom of the dash board) to reach the flasher (it is easy to remove - I don't think you even need tools).
