Having problems with your Pontiac Sunfire ?

1997 Sunfire GT. Right, left, and spoiler brake lights not working. Rear left and right turn signals not working either. Both front turn signals work, but they blink quickly as if a bulb were out. Headlamps both extremely dim, and I only have use of Parking lights when driving. I first inspected the fuses on the inside console. They looked to be ok, looked at bulbs, the filaments seem to be ok, but grease where the bulb is plugged in is dried up and hardened. I replaced the turn signal switch

88 Jeep Cherokee, left turn signals don't work. Right signals flash as they should. Emergency flashers work as well. When the left turn signal is activated, the dash arrow lights up, the front bulb lights up and the rear bulb lights up but the flasher doesn't click. The flasher was replaced to rule it out and because it is easy, the left rear turn signal bulb was replaced and the front bulb was checked. It seems to me then next item to replace would be the turn signal switch. Any thoughts?

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. Instrument panel lights quit also, but don't know if this is related, or if it happened at the same time. I tried a new flasher, but when I put it in the fuse blew. 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

I have a problem with a 93 Jeep Cherokee Laredo 4W - The right blinker & brake light works like they should. However,the left brake & backup lights are out ( new bulbs have been installed & still out). When I use the left turn signal it looks like emergency flashers are on in the back. The front of the vehicle looks normal. What could the problem be?


By emergency flasher "look" do you mean both rear lights are flashing? If so,The problem may be in the signal switch. otherwise it could be the ground for the light sockets not being connected well. Try swapping the four way flasher with the directio ... 2000 Jeep Wrangler

I have a 96' Rodeo that has blinker trouble. I've changed the bulbs and checked the flashers. When I drive during the day w/o the headlights the right blinker works fine, but the left one says it's blinking and it is but so is both brake lights and turn signals on the rear and allof the marker lights and turn signals on the front.

Honda 2005 CRV - The left headlight is OK. The turn signal works both sides till I turn on the headlights. Then the right one does not work. that is a Honda safety feature. Non working turn signal on full lamps is to warn the owner there is a burned out head lamp. The right headlight will not burn. The bulb is good. Checked with an Ohm meter and attached the battery charger to it and it lights up. An H1 Silverstar bulb is BRIGHT. Especially right in front of you. The wiring harness that plugs in

I have a 1990 full size ford Bronco. The rear right turn signal went out and I replaced in and it still did not work but the rest of the turn signals worked.

I have a 1995 Nissan Altima GXE that has an issue with the back lights. Only 2 of the bulbs on the left side work, none on the right. The 2 on the left go on when I turn on the running lights. Nothing happens when I hit the brake pedal. Turn signals do not work either when using them normally, but they do turn on with the hazard lights.

Ok Mr & Ms's Experts, try this one. I have a 1990 Jeep Cherokee Limited, I6 4.0L and I have problems with my right turn signal. This I know... 1) The bulbs are good. 2) Left flashers work front and rear. 3) I can manually make the right flashers work (both) by moving the signal stick up and down when I turn - when the running lights are off. 4) When the running lights are on, this does not work. A mechanic said I had a ground fault. If this is true, how can I find it?


Agree with the ground fault. Look for one of the TS lamps to be slightly dimmer than the ones on the other side. This would indicate that it is finding its ground through the parking lamp filament. From there you will have to use meters to trace t ... 1990 Jeep Cherokee Limited

I've got a 1992 Oldesmobile Achieva, with the 2.3 SOHC. The beast has a strange problem: the left turn signal works, but the right does not. At first I thought that this was just a burned out light, so I replaced all the right side lights one by one, and no dice. I switched the left side and right side bulbs, but the left side still worked and the right side still did not. So I began checking continuity on what wires I could, and still nothing. Furthermore, this also affects the right front
