Question about 2000 Pontiac Firebird

3 Answers

The turn signals on my 2001 pontiac formula firebird are not blinking. When I turn them on, they just stay lit. The bulbs burned out yesterday and I replaced them with 3057 Sylvania brand bulbs. The lights work fine when I put my flashers on.

You have two separate flasher devices on your car. One operates the flashers, and the other, usually located near the fuse area, operates the turn signals. A trip to your local Autozone or Advance Auto Parts, or for that matter most reputable parts house will give the exact location of turnsignal flasher, and they can supply a new one.

I just had the same exact problem on my 79 firebird formula.check your fuse panel and make sure the contacts are still decent.my problem was dead on with yours and it actually ended up being the signal flasher.which is located to the right of your steering column just above the brake pedal.you should see a 2 prong plug.just pull the old one out,and plug in the new flasher.if the bulbs turn on,but stay solid.it is DEFINITELY the flasher and not the switch or bulbs.

I have always used 3157 bulbs for that spot but anyhow....yes, if that is not that case then it does sound like your turn signal flasher has stopped working correctly. it is located under and to the right of the steering wheel, behind the panel that can be removed by unscrewing some screws...it is held in place by a clip and can be easily pulled out for replacement...at least on my 2000 pontiac firebird that is, sure wish i had a formula!

Left turn signal bulbs will not flash but stays on steadily and the right side works just fine


check for burnt bulbs either in back or front of car on the left, one bulb out is enough to stop the blinking

This usually indicates one bulb on that side is burned out. Replace the bulb and all will be working again.

Turn signals dont flash on 95 firebird formula


There are dual elements bulb and single element bulb.

You need to see is there two contacts inside the socket.

If you accidentally put a single contact bulb into dual contact socket......it will cause this problem.

Check it out.

My turn signal lights wont work on my 95 firebird formula


Go under the dash on the drivers side, and locate the two flasher stat units. These are small round aluminum 'cans'. They plug in, and have flat blades on the bottom. (You of course won't see these flat terminal blades until you unplug them)

One is for the turn signals. One is for the four way flashers. I can't tell you which one is which.

Past this point, check all the grounds for the turn signals. The wiring harness at the front will have one, or two leads, (Wires), coming out that bolt directly to metal. Either sheet metal for the car, or to the frame. These leads have flat, round terminal ends on them, with a hole in the middle of the terminal.

The lead's terminal end bolts can work loose causing a bad ground, and/or, there could be corrosion in-between the terminal end, and the area of metal it bolts to. If so, use sandpaper, and clean the terminal end, plus the area of metal it bolts to.

There are ground leads, (Or lead), that come out of the rear wiring harness also. Check these.

Still no?
Then your turn signal bulb sockets have corrosion in them. This causes a bad ground.

You may be able to use a rolled up piece of sandpaper, and clean the socket.
(Also touch up the lead, {LED. As in the metal lead}, contact point in the middle of the socket. This is for the Positive connection, but it doesn't hurt to clean it while you're there.

After this is the turn signal switch in the steering column.
(My money is on a bad flasher unit)

Turn signal driver's side doesn't blink


A safety (warning) feature on many cars is that the turn signal light will come on but not blink. This should indicate a burned out filament in one of the bulbs on the effected side. Try checking the bulbs and replace them one by one and see if this cures the problem.

Front blinkers


I think i had the same issue. When i armed the car alarm, the lights work fine, but when i use the signals they dont work. I changed them out today and found one side had burn marks from shorting out. I used bulb grease on the new ones and have had no issues. The signals blink fine now.
