    Turn Signal Wiring Harness

    Hi everyone,
    Hope someone can help me out.

    I have been searching all over for a replacement turn signal wiring harness. This is at the bulb end. My driver's side turn signal/Day-time-running light is not working. I know the bulb is good because if I put the bulb in the passenger side socket, it works fine.

    My socket on the driver's side shows signs of over heating. I think that water got in there and it got all messed up.

    The parking light portion of the socket works fine.

    What I am trying to find is the socket with three wires coming out of it, so that I can replace my faulty one.

    Does anyone know where to find one of these?

    My vehicle:
    2002 Pontiac Trans Am


    Thanks
    Jim

    The socket is dorman p/n 85881. It is around $7-8 at autozone or oreily's, it is not listed as the socket for a t/a. I believe it is listed for an s-10, but it is the right one, I have a spare in my basement that I just double checked.

    You do NOT need to cut the old wires...the socket comes apart, just pop out the inner part then pull the pins and the wires slide out.
    Mine were alittle corroded, so I scrubbed them off and then reinstalled it with the new socket and pins.

    Also you might want to consider drilling a 1/4" hole in the bottom of the housing to allow water to drain and evaporate to prevent the socket from being damaged in the future. I did this to mine back in '02 and no problems since.

    Awesome.
    Thank you very much.
    I was dreading having to take it to the dealer to have them fix it for a couple hundred $$.

    Got the part. The replacement procedure went well. I ended up cutting the wires from the old connector and used some wire taps to connect the new wires. Everything works great with one exception. The locking tab does not engage to hold the socket into the lens housing. I used some electrical tape to hold the socket in place so it doesn't twist out.
