Ok I've replaced every bulb on the car and they still don't work. Is this a common problem? Does anyone know the fix?

Well if anyone cares this was really getting on my nerves but I went out today and got more bulbs. The third tailight and the little running ones on the side. Still not working now I have replaced every bulb on the car except the reverse lights. So I go to check then and wouldn't you know it. Once I got it apart I relized that I hadn't replace all of the bulbs and that I accidentally replaced the reverse bulb instead of the rear tailight. Well I'm happy to report that everything is now working. :30tens: And if I wasn't such a tool I wouldn't of had any problems. Oh well I shouldn't have to replace anymore bulbs for a longtime.

Ok this question I'm having a problem. My blonker will not blink inside the car. I turn it on to make a left turn and it will light but not blink.

You know on mine the front turn signals (assuming you don't have any burned out blinkers) for some reason get really hot. And the socket they sit are all brown or actually burned from the heat of the bulb. If I reach my hand in there or hit a bump presto it works. I am thinking abour trying to use electric tape to hold it in better to see if this fixes the problem. It's either that or replace the socket which would be a huge pain in the azz since you have to remove the flash fairing underneath the front clip to really get at the socket. I was lucky I already have the motors out so I could access them pretty easy. But that's tomorrows chore. To put in the new brass motors. No more upright headlights on all the time for me! :30tens:

my turn signal was doing that for a few months and then for a few weeks they will work fine, then they will start acting up again, even after switch all bulbs, i narrowed it down to the turn signal switch on the side of the steering wheel column..i know if i sometimes push it toward me as i use the turn signal it will sometimes work, so if its not the bulbs it might be in the switch, as in a short, lose connection or a bad switch......but around here i hardly use a signal, i just change lanes hehe. :Various_Artists-blowup:
