1999 Buick Regal pass side head lamp assembly. It all works well except the directional blinker. It will be out for a time and then, out of the blue, it will work for a few days. There is power to all the wires and bulbs. They all work except the blinker.

Carefully check to wire that leads to it. You probably have a bad wire. Intermittent problem is almost always due to poor electrical connections.

If its only this one location that is the problem then check the socket as it could be the problem.if its okay then you will have to check the wiring from the socket back as it could have a bad spot that is causing the problem.you don`t say but is this light also the side marker light and does it work when the signal won`t it could also be the filament that is making and breaking contact within the bulb.this is the area to start looking in.

How do remove a headlight from the the assembly for a 1999 buick park avenue


Hello there,
For you to be able to take off the assembly of the headlight on your car, please follow the steps below:
Ensure that the headlight switch (on the driver side of the Regal's passenger cabin) is in the off position.
Release the hood latch and open the hood.
Approach the passenger-side headlamp assembly. (Although on your left, this is the right-side lens assembly when sitting inside the vehicle.)
Locate the two white retaining brackets on the top rear edge of the assembly.
Lift the tabs straight upward about an inch to an inch and a half.
Grab the assembly from the sides of the front edge (being careful of any broken lens pieces; although the lens is made of plastic, you can still get cut by jagged pieces).
Firmly pull the assembly outward, away from the front of the Regal. Wiggle the assembly slightly to unseat the headlamp assembly alignment guide pins from their anchors.
Pull the assembly out only far enough to access the wire harness connections of the low-beam headlight, the high-beam headlight and the integrated parking/directional light.
Twist the retaining collar of the low-beam lamp (the outside lamp, toward the fender) a quarter-turn counterclockwise to remove the light from the headlamp assembly while it is still attached to the wire harness. Be careful not to contact the halogen bulbs with your bare hands, or you can damage the bulbs.
Twist the retaining collar of the high-beam headlight (the inner headlight, closer to the grill) in the same manner as you did the low-beam lamp to remove the high-beam bulb and harness from the headlamp assembly.
Twist the socket of the last remaining integrated parking/directional bulb and wire harness assembly a quarter-turn counterclockwise to remove it from the headlight assembly.
Discard the assembly and replace it with the new headlamp assembly by following the steps above in reverse order. Make sure to align the tabs of the retaining collar and parking/directional lamp socket with the mating notches on the new headlamp assembly before turning them all clockwise a quarter-turn to lock them in place.
All the best Elect_Comp

Can't get to passenger side head light to change it


Directly behind the head lamp assembly there are 2 tabs.These hold the head lamp assembly in place in back.Pull up on both of these and the complete assembly should pull out.Then remove the covers and replace the bulb that needs replacing.Check and make sure it works before you put it back together.Good luck.
