    Angry Crazy blinkers-help!

    My blinker light is driving me up a wall, I could use some advice. I very recently changed both of the bulbs for my blinker lights, and not even 2 weeks or so now the one on the left side is acting like it is dead again. I drilled out small holes to let condensation escape too. I know it can't be dead already. Anyone??

    You may want to check the socket itself. I had my parking/ blinker kept going out even after I had changed the bulb a couple of times. The socket was melted were the contacts are for the bulb. I got a new kit from the dealer which included heat shrink butt connectors and it's worked fine since.

    You will have to change out the sockets. Three small wires to cut, strip and crimp on each side. The condensation erodes these sockets. Get the front end on jack stands and take off the panels that let you get to the sockets. This is an easy job. Be sure to put a dielectric grease in the sockets before inserting the new bulbs. This will keep the corrision from happening again. Hope this helps. ( re-read the question ! ) This fix is for the front blinkers.

    Under the steering wheel just to the left of the radio.
    You have to take down the cover under there.

    Two wires run into it and it is clipped to the side near the radio.
