My front and rear park lights were working fine, then i noticed yesterday, that the front ones no longer come on at all, except when using the indicators. The right park lights flash with (at the same time) the right indicator (and visa versa) instead of alternating on and off with the indicator. They do not come on at all when the headlights are one either (low beam and high beam headlights are ok). I've checked all fuses and bulbs, but i'm not sure what else to look for.


Look for a short in the front and rear parking light wiring using a digital multimeter to check for continuity. If you do not find a short, replace your headlight switch. ... Chevrolet Tahoe

2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue - Turn Indicator Problem. So I have a "quick flash" on the instrument cluster for the left turn signal. I've replaced the bulbs, checked the contacts, checked the main fuse panel, and for good measure gave the wires a solid jiggling. The center running lamp (yellow) and front left turn bulb won't indicate a left turn. Instead just the cornering lamp comes on (this I believe is a built in function) If the lights are turned on, the low-level filament turns on (maybe it


While a fast flash usually indicates a burned out bulb, you've obviously covered these bases. Your next step should be to check the turn signal solenoid, also called a turn signal "flasher", as these ususally cost between $6 and $12. If that doesn' ... 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue

1989 Chevrolet S-10 4X4 Blazer with 4.3L V6. Solved my problem with 4 wheel drive not engaging.

My husband bought a 2005 E55 AMG last Sat. We've had 8 different messages in the 10 days we've owned it including various bulbs out, check engine, and low coolant temp. They appear/disappear within a day or two, and on the bulb out messages, the bulb is not out, it's actually working just fine. Is this a main electrical problem? Is it a sign of more serious problems to come?

Headlight problems I have a 2002 chevy silverado. I can't get either of my headlights to come on. When I turn my switch to manually turn on the headlights my tailights come on but no headlights. My high beam indicator is constantly on and won't turn off even if I pull the lever back. I have changed out my headlight relay because it looked burnt and have checked all the fuses in the fuse box and they are all fine. All the bulbs appear to be fine too.


Hi. That sounds like the Low/high beam switch is malfunctioning and in need of replacement. I believe this because the headlights will not come on no matter which power source is attempting to activate them. Clearly, they are not getting power. ... 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

When I apply the brakes on my 2004 Toyota Sienna, the front left turn indicator comes on as does the dash left turn indicator (stays solid). These stay on until I release the brake. If I use the flashers and hazards everything works fine but if I apply the brakes with the left flasher on, this overrides the normal operation of the left turn indicator and it just becomes solid again. Possible clue: the rear right brake light was out. I replaced the bulb the the proper replacement. The problem

Blinkers My blinkers are acting weird. I thought my right blinker was out, because my blinker indicator was going faster than normal. Well, I got out and check the front light and it was blinking a little faster then it should. Then I checked my back light and it wasn't blinking at all, but my bulb was still on. The other side was working just fine. Now here is where I'm stunned. I go and take my wife to work and my right side blinkers are working so I'm like sweet it works. I turn on my

Fuses have been checked and are fine. Bulbs have been checked and the filaments look fine. checking the power on the socket I noticed that I'm not getting power to the bulb. the only time power is on the bulb is when I hit the brakes..

While driving my 2004 pontiac grand prix, my service brake indicator came on. I recently had my brakes checked and was told that pads and rotors were fine, but that within the next few month I would need new front pads (80, 000 miles). I came to my destination, depressed the parking brake after shutting off the car and released it. Came back to my car 20 minutes later and started the car and the light did not come back on. Could the sensor be monitoring the amount of pad left, or is there someth
