Hi, i have a 2007 vauxhall vectra. Change side light as dash said not working. Still not working after changing it? Any ideas please. Thx Naomi :-)

Bulbs not working can be for a number of reasons. It could be a bulb, a fuse or a wiring problem. Checking the fuse is easy to do.
Just changing the bulb may not resolve the problem (as in your case). Take the bulb that is not working and place it in another working bulb holder to see if the "so called" blown bulb actually is okay. If it doesn't light up then throw it away, don't put it down as you will get it mixed up with working ones (been there, done that). Take the "known to be working" bulb you removed from the working bulb holder and try that in the "blown bulb" holder. If that doesn't work replace it in the original working bulb holder and see if it still works. If it does then the "blown bulb" holder is the place to start looking. Clean up the contacts on this holder and try a bulb again. Still no luck, check the wiring at the back of the holder for broken connections. Most cars are now wired to light clusters that hold indicators, brake, side, reverse and fog lights. These are all on a circuit board (you will see what looks like silver strips from each bulb holder running to a connector that the wiring loom plugs into). If you have a meter, check to see if you have power to the faulty holder. Sometimes just wiggling the bulb or connector plug will make the bulb work, in which case it is a connection issue. If you can, try swapping over the left and right light clusters (just remove and plug in as they won't fit the car the wrong way round). If the "faulty" cluster works in the "working" side and the "working" has the same original problem in the "faulty" side, then it is the light cluster that has the problem and not the wiring from the connector back into the cars wiring loom.....big relief.
I always find electrical issues frustrating, so be methodical and eliminate any possible problem one at a time. Don't do lots of work and then check because if you can identify the single cause, should it reappear (and it most probably will in my experience) that is the first place to check again.
Good luck and hopefully that eliminates the need to call an expensive repairman.

How to change lightbulb in Air Electronic SU TSP Jubilee 500 and Carinas

If you own an Elna Air Electronic and blow a lightbulb then here is the instructions to change it. The lightbulb will be a bayonet fitting 15w but maybe remove old one first to make sure you get the right length bulb at the shop.

Firstly unplug the machine. Take your mini screwdriver that came in your kit and look at the top of the machine above the needle. There is a little hole there, put the screwdriver into the hole and push down on it, this lowers the bulb holder in the head of the machine down below the casing on a slant towards the back of the sewing bed, its spring loaded so you may need a second pair of hands to do it the first time.
Hold the screwdriver down, and grasp the bulb, push it up and twist anticlockwise to undo the bayonet fitting. Push down and repeat the process to insert the new bulb, turning clockwise to insert it into the bayonet fitting. Release the screwdriver and the bulb holder will retract back into position.

If you have a Stella air electronic then it is very similar except for the location where you need to push. On the Stella look at the rear of the machine head above the bobbin cover and you will see a little slide mounted right at the end of the rear casing. Same thing but for these, put the screwdriver across the top of the slide horizontally, then push down on it to lower the bulb mounting.

That's it! Happy sewing.

How to troubleshoot , left front marker/ signal is out ( bulb is good)

Start with the bulb holder, Steven. When you put the bulb in, is it making contact with the bottom connector?

The bulb has two connectors. One is the round casing and the second is the solder connector on the bottom of the bulb.

When you push in the bulb, the casing connector grips the bulb holder either by screwing into place or pushing in and turning a quarter turn.

The bottom connector needs to touch a piece of metal or a spring at the bottom of the holder. If this metal/spring is pushed down, it may not be making correct contact.

Also check and see if there is a fuse for the turn signals/markers. There may be one fuse for each side.

Also check if the left rear marker /signal bulb is good as they can be connected in series. If one bulb blows, the other good bulb still doesn't work.

Hope this helps get you started.

2004 aztec shifter bulb

the bulb is Probably burnt out you will need to take apart the top part of the center counsel first by taking out the cups in the cup holders then the bottom cup holder will have a screw in it you will need to remove this screw and then pop up the rest of the counsel it should come fairly easy after you have removed that piece next you will need to remove the cover with all of the letters on it (this is held on by clips) you should be able to again get it very easy. after removing all of that you will see the bulb.replace the bulb and go back through the steps to assemble and you are all done

How do i chance the fog light bulb on my ford windstar 2003. I removed the sealed deam from it's location but the bulb is stuck inside. Do the sealed beam could be open???? tks

Are you sure it is a "sealed beam" light. If so, you can't replace the element in a true sealed beam. Thus the name "sealed". Most all recent cars have halogen bulbs that are mounted in a bayonet holder that comes out of the light reflector and lenses assembly. You turn the bulb holder about a 1/4 turn, usually counterclockwise and the holder comes out with the bulb. The bulb can be several different type mounts. Some plug in and some are bayonet mounts also. Get a new bulb and that will help you see how it mounts. When installing one of these halogen bulbs, DO NOT touch the glass bulb with you bear fingers. The oil from your skin will burn on to the glass and reduce the light and shorten the bulb life. Sometimes a little silicone grease on the bulb holder mount tabs will make putting it back together and taking it apart the next time. Just little grease, and only on the mount. Don't get anything inside on the reflector or the bulb and be sure you turn the mount all the way to seal out water. Anything on the reflector will damage the reflector surface. Maybe that is too much about a bulb, but it is important if you don't already know it. Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

First remove all the bulbs involve in the problem, then start installing the one by one, notice when the problem comeback, start looking for a melt, damage or very important wrong bulb touching two filaments at the same time.

Find the turn signal flasher and remove it, problem goes away ? inspect the circuit, the combination switch, the bulbs ans socket pig tails for short.

Mercedes C Class w203 side light bulb

Hi rogergilliant,
Joe here, The best way to remove the side light bulb is to go threw threw the inside. Have to remove the under front fender lining. There is a clip to remove the housing, but the best way to not damage anything is to go from underneath.

im not sure what a magic chef bulb is but you can check by opening the casing, the bulb is normally mounted on a fiber board and screwed on the metal part of the microwave,remove the two wires attached to it first, after unscrewing the screw, you can pull out the bulb holder and you can see if it is a replaceable bulb if it has a socket. you can use the old bulb holder , just replace the bulb. in some design, the bulb is mounted directly to the bulb holder, you have to buy the bulb mounted directly to a new bulb holder and use them all as an assembly. be sure to screw them back tight. tnx. i hope i was able to help.
