I gather that you have checked the bulb with a meter to see if it is bad. If it is xenon high intensity then they have a short lifespan because of the heat. If that is not the problem check the batteries with a meter to see if they are good and if they are, replace the switch.

Front right turn signal light does not blink but will turn on replaced bulb still only one side of duel fillement bulb lights up i think there is a ground issue but not sure if only this turn bulb gro


If you have a loose piece of wire,run it from the battery negative to the light housing, to check your ground. I put seperate grounds directly from battery negative to all light housings because they are so very fickle.

How to replace low beam bulb on toyota avalon XL 2009


Here's what I did to change the driver's side halogen low beam bulb #9006. Do so at your own risk.


1. First ensure fuses are OK. There are four(4) 15A fuses in the fuse box under the hood - drivers side. All are clearly mapped out on underside of fuse box cover. I used the continuity tester circuit on a VOM to ensure they were OK.

2. Remove large plastic shroud that runs across from one side of the top front under the hood of vehicle to the other side. 5 plastic pins held mine in place. Once off -- you'll be able to see your vehicles radiator cap. Removing this helps provide some additional access and leverage to better work with.

3. Remove battery negative cable - 10mm socket

4. Remove battery hold down bracket - rod - one(1) 10mm bolt at front - one(1) 10mm nut on rod. Deep socket 10mm helps with the 10mm nut.

5. Remove battery positive cable - 10mm socket

6. Remove battery and plastic battery tray

7. You should see the halogen low beam bulb #9006 in front of the fuse box(drivers side). Mine has a brown electrical plug connected to it. It helps to first remove and place out of the way - the parking light which is just to the left - the assembly for mine is light gray in color. Doing so gets that wire out of the way. One less distraction when you reach in to remove the low beam halogen bulb #9006.

8. Remove electrical connection from halogen low beam bulb #9006. There's a locking tab on the bottom - press in and while doing that - push down on the electrical connector from the top. It comes off without a great deal of effort.

9. Remove halogen low beam bulb #9006 by turning counter-clockwise - looking at the bulb from the back. Mine did not want to twist loose right away. Go slowly - take your time. It should eventually come loose. #9006 bulb came out easily even with the fuse box nearby.

10. Install new halogen low beam bulb #9006. I opted for a $10 Wal-Mart Sylvania #9006.

11. Reconnect electrical connection to the new halogen low beam bulb #9006.

12. Clean battery tray and terminals on battery + connections on battery cables.

13. Install battery tray and battery

14. Connect positive battery cable to battery - 10mm

15. Connect hold-down and rod + one(1) 10mm bolt at front and one(1) 10mm nut that goes on rod at rear.

16. Connect negative battery terminal - BUT - before doing so - have your remote locking/unlocking device handy. As soon as you connect the negative battery cable to the batteries negative terminal - the horn will sound(alarm). Quickly depress the UNLOCK button on your vehicles remote. Finish tightening the negative cable. You should also see that the low beam is once again functional as it will come on when the alarm is sounded.

17. Reinstall large plastic shroud and all lock down tabs

18. Start car and set clock/radio settings/etc.

19. There is a procedure to resync the power windows. The following provided by inov8 from another forum.

Copied from TSB PD002-05

NOTE:
Anytime the battery terminal has been disconnected, please initialize the driver's door
power
window and front passenger's door power window after reconnecting the
battery terminal.

With ignition switch in the "ON" position, do the following:

1. Push down and hold the driver's door power
window switch to completely open
the
window.
2. Pull and hold up the driver's door power
window switch until the window closes.
Continue holding the switch for approximately one second until the switch changes
from blinking to a constant illumination.
3. Check for proper operation of the "one-touch open and close" function by fully
pushing the switch briefly to the "DOWN" and "UP" positions.

At this time the power
window switch for the passenger's door window should
be blinking.
4. Push down and hold the passenger's door power
window switch to completely open
the
window.
5. Pull and hold up the passenger's door power
window switch until the window closes.
Continue holding the switch for approximately one second until the switch changes
from blinking to a constant illumination.
6. Check for proper operation of the "one-touch open and close" function by fully
pushing the switch briefly to the "DOWN" and "UP" positions.

Sunroof initialization is similar.


20. There is a procedure to resync power seats. Extracted from factory service doc:

Using seat switches - fully slide seat fwd. - fully recline seatback fwd. - fully raise seat cushion and head rest.

Using seat switches - fully slide the seat rearward - fully recline the seatback rearward - fully lower seat cushion and head rest.

2003 883 custom sportster has no rear running lights, but when I hit the turn signals, they flash. Also, the tail light quit working. I can mess with the bulb and get it going, but when I hit the brake,...


HI THE PROBLEM WITH YOUR REAR LIGHTS IS THAT YOU HAVE A BROKEN NEGATIVE WIRE FOR THE REAR LIGHT CLUSTER TO PROVE THIS, SIMPLY RUN A LENGTH OF CABLE FROM THE METAL CASING OF THE LIGHT CLUSTER AND GO DIRECT TO THE BATTERY NEGATIVE IF ALL THE LIGHTS THEN WORK THAT PROVES ALL THE FEED SIDE .MOST MOTOR BIKES HAVE BULLET CONNECTIONS YOU NEED TO TRACE THE WIRING FROM THE BACK OF BIKE TO THE FRONT UNDER THE SEAT TO THE FUSES IF YOU CAN,T FIND ANYTHING LOOSE OR BROKEN THEN I SUGGEST YOU MAKE A NEW NEGATIVE RETURN TO BATTERY NEGATIVE A PERMANANT ONE THIS SHOULD SOLVE THE PROBLEM. GOOD LUCK{ FROM AN AUTO ELECTRICIAN}

1999 Chevrolet Suburban. Stop lights are not working, what are the causes?


The power is not getting from the positive battery post to the brake light bulbs and back again to the negative battery post. I know this sounds stupid, but I have seen many people beat their heads against the wall trying to figure out a lighting problem when it really is as simple as "the power has to go from positive to negative"...Period!

So now, you could have a shorted brake lamp circuit that is causing the fuses to blow and cut the power from the circuit. You could have a bad brake lamp switch keeping the power from going where it is supposed to. It could be a bad turn signal switch. It could be burned out light bulbs. Last, but not least, it could be broken wires or a bad connector causing an open circuit.

How do i replease the fog lights on my 2003


To replace the foglights, you need to get at them from the backside, under the car. The best way is to jack the car up to give yourself some room.

It is very easy to replace and you can replace JUST the bulb. Don't have anyone tell you you have to replace the entire assembly.

Removal & Installation
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Detach the connector for the foglamp.
  3. Twist the foglamp bulb 1/4 of a turn and remove the bulb from the foglamp lens.
To install:
  1. Twist the bulb until the tangs engage into the foglamp lens.
  2. Attach the connector for the foglamp.
  3. Connect the negative battery cable.

Battery goes dead after car sits for 3-4 days


Parasitic drain? If so, did they run a test light on the negative terminal? Unhook the negative battery cable, run a test light between the negative battery post and the negative (removed) cable end. Does the light come on? If so, remove each fuse, one at a time, when you hit the circuit that is draining, the light will go off.

I have a 95 Buick Roadmaster and it was doing the same thing. It was a broken light in the trunk, the bulb was out, but the electricity was still there. The wire became damaged when my daughter overloaded the trunk. Just a couple of ideas...
