my blinker wont blink....but the ambers aren't burned out and still work as the running lights?! but when i use the turn signal knob, it blinks really fast like that one time i forgot to hook them up.....but they are hooked up. brakes and headlights work.

do i need to just change the bulb?

Check the turn signal in the rear. One is probably burnt out.

You are out of blinker fluid. The fill location is located behind the passenger side tail light. Should be an easy fix. :eek:mg:



There's a light bulb guide stickied at the top of this forum. ;)

there are also 2 light strands in each bulb one for daytime runners and another for blicker/night runners

btw... the numbers for the bulb r printed right on it. should be 3057 or 3157

I've been having the same problem. Been meaning to start a thread about it but it hasn't done it in a few weeks so I forgot.....

Everything will be kosher the out of nowhere my driver front turn signal will go out. Sometimes it comes back on by itself but if it lasts a bit longer, then I can "jiggle" the bulb and it'll come on, or I take the bulb completly out and turn it 180 it works again. Last time I did it, it worked for like 5 mins into my drive, then hit some bumps and it stopped, then hit more bumps and it worked again???

I don't think the problem is in the Bulb. When I got my clear lights and chrome bulbs I installed all of it and right off the bat the driver turn signal didn't work, and that was with a BRAND new bulb. Again, I had to pop the socket out and jiggle the bulb so it would work.:econo:

Now that Josue has described his problem I think I remember some people having a problem with the bulb socket, and they wound up having to have it replaced.

No telling, it'll depend on the dealer probably. Shit, they might blame it on your hood. :lol:

What if you just readjust the terminals inside the socket??

I had to do that after putting LEDs inside my DRLs/parking lights. The LEDs stretched the terminals wayyy out and the stock bulbs wouldn't sit securely anymore. They would wiggle around.

I took a small screwdriver and pried the terminals back out. They've worked like stock ever since.

hahahaha "your hood is causing the airflow to go directly over your truck which in turn is screwing up all your lightbulbs"

what are you talking about? the plastic clip that holds the bulb in place or the metal contacts? i have the same problem, but mine seems to be temperature related.
