2003 cavalier left turn signal blinking fast in front but nothing in rear.?

My 2001 Chevy Cavalier left turn signal is blinking fast in front but it does not light up in back, changed the bulb and worked for just for a short time, now it is not. Someone said I would need to change the whole unit attached to the bulb in trunk. Any SERIOUS ideas or thoughts, wisdom, any idea of how much it may cost to fix this problem?2003 cavalier left turn signal blinking fast in front but nothing in rear.?You need to replace the bulb. IT comes out from inside the trunk. They don't cost much.2003 cavalier left turn signal blinking fast in front but nothing in rear.?uslly on amercain cars when the fasher blinks fast it means a lamp is blown out , all a flasher is , is a bimetal strip that heats up and opens up then cools and closes again , if a blub is out less current (amps) is drawn so the bimetal opens and closes slower, if it stays on steady multiple blubs may be out or a bad ground or disconnected wire etc, a fast blinking flasher uslly is a bad flasher and needs to be replaced2003 cavalier left turn signal blinking fast in front but nothing in rear.?you have a short or a fuse is out check you owners manual2003 cavalier left turn signal blinking fast in front but nothing in rear.?Take the bulb out again and look into the socket to see if it's burned. This is a common problem which would require the socket to be replaced.

E-mail me if you have any questions.2003 cavalier left turn signal blinking fast in front but nothing in rear.?You might have put the bulb in backwards or not seated the bulb fully in its socket. Yopu may have put in a defective bulb. Change it again.2003 cavalier left turn signal blinking fast in front but nothing in rear.?If the rear bulb keeps burning out, you have a short in the system. Don't change the unit. The short can be traced by an automotive electrical repair shop. Check your yellow pages.2003 cavalier left turn signal blinking fast in front but nothing in rear.?The one that isn't flashing is burned out and the blinker unit is making the other one flash faster because of it.2003 cavalier left turn signal blinking fast in front but nothing in rear.?just happened in my blazer too.

replace the rear turn signal bulb.



you may wish to try replacing the bulb unit. sounds like either the bulb is gone again or there is a short.2003 cavalier left turn signal blinking fast in front but nothing in rear.?how about checking the fuse that might be your problem..........2003 cavalier left turn signal blinking fast in front but nothing in rear.?10 pts for jarhed2003 cavalier left turn signal blinking fast in front but nothing in rear.?Check the rear bulb and it's ground. Is the trunk seal in good repair? Any leakage and your bulb socket connectors will rust! :-)=2003 cavalier left turn signal blinking fast in front but nothing in rear.?Replace the bulb.....but listen I had the same prob and water was getting in the tail light and it kept blowing the bulbs. Had to drill 2 holes for the water to escape---fixed the prob. But, you might want to just get a NEW tail light altogether. Not that expensive.



Have a garage check it for you.2003 cavalier left turn signal blinking fast in front but nothing in rear.?You should inspect the socket more carefully, the ends inside can corrode. Try scrapping them clean, on both the bulb and socket. It would not hurt to test the bulb again to see if it is still good. You can also turn the signal on and with a tester see if you are getting current back there, if you use a light tester it will blink on and off. Just hook one end to ground and the other touch the terminal. You can get one pretty cheap at an auto store, in fact they may even come out and show you how to use it or test it for you.2003 cavalier left turn signal blinking fast in front but nothing in rear.?well, usually a fast-blinking light means it needs changed, however, you said you did that and it was fine but broke again....

sounds like you may have a short in that light.

take it to a mechanic and have them check the fuse for that light.



we have light fixtures in our house that will insist on blowing the bulb after only a month or so....it's the electrical connection, not the bulb itself.

this sounds like a similar thing...



good luck!2003 cavalier left turn signal blinking fast in front but nothing in rear.?When replacing a bulb do not touch with your hands, use a rag or something. The oils from your skin will cause it to break as soon as gets hot. Don't know if this applies to your situation now, but it could be useful in the future. I learned this after ruining a few bulbs (for my car).



Good luck, car stuff is a challenge for single women with a tight budget- but you will learn alot along the way!2003 cavalier left turn signal blinking fast in front but nothing in rear.?The left taillight is out, so that bulb has to be replaced. The replacement bulb is very cheap. As for replacing it from inside the trunk, you need to consult your owner's manual on how to do it.2003 cavalier left turn signal blinking fast in front but nothing in rear.?If there is only one wire for the entire unit then yes you need a whole new unit. Otherwise you have a short somewhere if it keeps blowing bulbs.
