My '89 S-10 pickup turn signal quit working on left side. Right side works. Bulbs look okay. Flasher makes the sound when I try the left side, but no lights.

I checked continuity on both old and new flasher; old one had current, new one wouldn't light my tester. Store said it is the right one. I reinstalled the original one because

Blinkers My blinkers are acting weird. I thought my right blinker was out, because my blinker indicator was going faster than normal.

I have a 95 SC2. The high beam headlight on the passanger side does not work. Both low beams work, and when the high beams are turned on, the right side goes out completley. I tried a new light and then switched the drivers side to rule out a defective new bulb. I cannot find a high beam relay, and the fuses all seem good.


According to the wiring diagram, there is no relay involved.The headlight switch provides the ground for the lights and they get power from a fuse for each side. So the high and low beam on one side is powered by the same fuse and the ground is ... Saturn SC

My 99 Jeep grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4 has some brake light problems. The brake lights work fine during the day, but when I need to have my headlights on, my left brake light and tail light competley shut off when I come to a stop.

2005 Scion XA rear passenger side turn signal bulb stopped working and indicator started blinking rapidly. I changed the bulb and still the same. Checked fuse and it's ok. Switched the working driver side turn signal bulb with housing to the non-working passenger side and it wouldn't work there. After putting new bulbs in both sides (since I bought a pair I figured "why not"), I disconnected the car battery to "reset" the power in the car, and when it turned back on it was still the same.
