    Turn signal not working

    ok so i am sure this might have been discussed before but i have a 1999 trans am and my 2 front turn signals are all corroded out. the lights dont blink when i use the blinkers but work just fine when the headlight are on. i was told i need new connectors but have no idea where to find them. i have been through like 20 bulbs in the last month and it is like a daily routine to change the bulb when i start the car and i am tire of it. i just want it to work when i start it up and stop burning out. i already have a new set of housings and 2 new bulbs but i want to get a new connector first. any and alll suggestions are welcome. thanks

    Go to a local salvage yard find a Pontiac cut wires about 6" long make sure
    color of the connector is GREY that is what is used on the Firbird & Ta. Remove your
    defective connector and reconnect the three wires blue to blue, brown to brown,
    and black to black. You can solder the wires or crimp. Should take you about a hour.
    PROBLEM SOLVED.

    I had the same problem with my 99 ta you have to clean them with baking soda and water and compressed air. if this does not work then replace the whole socket which are fairly cheap. Good luck!!!

    I went to autozone they said they don't carry that... dealer part only. I need that part the bulb actually sets in.

    You can also get the from Advanced Auto if Auto Zone doesn't have them. I needed 2 and the Auto Zone near me had one.
