    '02 turn signal bulb socket

    Had an issue with mine a while back. Went to a junk yard and found out that they use the same socket on Grand Ams and Gran Prix models of the same period. Sort of a PITA installing but if you can splice a wire then this is an easy/cheap fix. I recommend using butt connectors to splice with since this is a permanent fix, and use terminal grease on the bulb ends.

    Those sockets fit many different vehicles. Get the part number and google it. You will find that most of the small parts fit many different cars.

    You can get a replacement socket at auto zone...I think I paid 7.99 for it. Its on the floor in the bulb section.
