Default 2002 Chevy S10 rear left turn signal/brake light does not work


X-No-Archive: yes

Hi Folks:

I just discovered yesterday that my left tail light's turn-signal and brake
depress does not work. My left turn signal works on the front of my truck
but it clicks twice as fast a the right one (which works).

I tried going under the glove compartment where the wiring was to see if
something got jarred loose over a bump, etc.. I could not find anything
except for a little black box that was making the loud double-click sound (I
could feel the vibration on that little box). I could not see any loose
wires, etc...

Any idea what this could be??? My truck is fairly new (only 1.5 years old
and 19000 miles). Maybe the bulb just burned out??? Unfortunately, I'll
have to drive around a week or so like this as the dealerships are booked
7-8 days before they can get to you...

Any idea how much I'm looking at to have this repaired?

thanks in advance!!!

the problem is probably at the rear light itself, it should cost nothing
cause of the 3year/36k mile warranty.

Yes but what's your best bet Scott?

I'm wondering if it isn't a dead short in the filament? That does really
strange things.... Extra load (dead short) would make it blink faster, it
obviously can't light up. I had a duel filament bulb in my truck that did
that, chewed up 3 20amp fuses before ol' kj figured it out

Yup 3 fuses, 2 bulbs (the bulb base was junk, rotated on the glass) 20
minutes, and a plethora of cussing
If you have a multimeter, or a test light, there good friends.....

=====================
That sounds like a good guess to me. At the end of a 15 foot piece of 20
gauge wire, going through a OEM flasher, a short to ground would probably
cause that problem and posibly not blow the fuse right away.

There was a recall campain that involved the 4-way flasher switch on the
top of the column that would make the turn signals and brake lights do
some wierd things.
Something to look at....
