changing turn signal bulbs


Recommended Posts

my car is a 2003 coupe. Recently, my left turn signal started the infamous fast blinking, which usually means that a bulb is out. Since the front turn signal wasn't lit, I figured that was the one.

So, I used the tool from the kit and removed the headlight assembly, found the bulb and replaced it (the old bulb didn't look bad). This did not solve the issue. I still get the fast blinking with the left turn signal.

I've gone through the process several times to make sure that I replaced everything correctly.

any other thoughts?

I had the same issue, My socket was bad. The one that the bulb plugs into. There was rust in the bottom and the wires no longer made contact. I tried to fix it with some tin foil and wire pieces. It worked well but bothered me as I knew it would come back to haunt me. I started looking for a replacement. They are really hard to find !!! BUT I lucked out and DC auto in NY sent me a new one from a salvaged car (Porsche would only sell it attached to the headlight for like $900 !! )

SO if you can swap the socket from the right to the left (require removing both headlights, un plugging the socket and swapping sides) and it works... find a new socket... try junk yards and best of luck... report your findings too
