I switched my front turnsignals today (PO had switched them giving the car a cockeyed look). I have been having trouble with my driver's taillight/turnsignal. I cleaned, sanded, massaged the plug and socket and put in all new bulbs. I test drove the car (had a front rotor turned also, to stop that awful "scritch, scritch" sound) and when I got home the driver's rear taillight was out and NONE of my turnsignals would work. ARGGGH!! I'll check on a new taillight housing and plug tomorrow and maybe pick up a new blinker and check my fuses. This is getting aggravating!

When I can't stand, I must lean...
When I can't see, I must believe....

Check the housing area for good contact with the body; the grounding point for that socket is the housing, which grounds to the body. I had bad intermittent rear light problems until I pulled the tail assembly, cleaned all the dirt & paint away, & reinstalled. That solved everything.

I too had a terrible problem several years ago. It turned out to be a bad ground from the pass side parking light to the radiator support. Now that I am knee deep on this one, I installed 10 ga ground wires from the headlight/parking light cnnectors to the radiator support. And you know what? My surging turn signals are gone!

Check your grounds on the parking lights as well.
Good luck...
