turn signal ?

95 zj, all turn signals work and haz lites work also. What's weird is the left ts flashes really fast and i can't figure out why. Normally if you have one bulb out on a side it will flash fast like this, but they all work! What is going on?

I had some funny things going on with my turns also, I would get a light out indication on the VIC only sometimes my signals would flash abnormally fast. One day I noticed some condensation inside my tailight housing, there was a hairline crack in the plastic that I never even noticed, anyhow it had caused some corrosion in the bulb socket and I cleaned everything up and put some prteoleum jelly in the socket and it hasn't acted up again, knock on wood I still have the cracked housing on there.

I checked the clearance lights and i do have a 194 bulb out on the right and left front. If this is causing the prob on the left, why does the right work fine?

You just have to pull out the lense itself, no need to mess with the headlight.
There are 3 philips screws to get out and the whole light will pull out with enough slack in the wiring to remove the bulb and socket, one screw is on the top in the corner there's one just below the headlamp and one comes in from the side, you really have to look to see them and a long handle screwdriver is your friend.

ok, thanks. Did that and bulb and socket looked good. Cleaned it anyway and put new dielec grease in. Went to check rear bulb and dropped it like an idiot. Bulb looks good but now won't work at all. I will run to town and get a new bulb and keep you posted.
