    turn signal issue

    The headlamp buckets are a real chore to access. They have to be pulled, and they are not easy to remove. The tail light buckets have been replaced, but AFTER this problem occurred.

    turn signal issue

    I stated above that ALL lights are working. It's just that when the turn signals and headlights are n together that this happens

    turn signal issue

    The trailer wiring is factory. There's a plug on the back of the receptacle in the bumper. I pull it off, but the issue still exists. Does my truck have a regular turnsignal "flasher" or is it computer activated? I tried to follow the wiring from the trailer connector, but it's all factory...

    What would license lights have to do with the turn signals?

    turn signal issue

    I've gone over the entire lighting system and every lamp is working as it should. All the lights are new

    turn signal issue

    Yes, but with no trailer connected, what would it matter? The system wouldn't detect any lamps without a trailer connected, unless there's a wiring issue?

    turn signal issue

    Turn signal issue. Just started doing this: turn signals work fine when lights are off, but when in any light mode( park or regular headlight), they blink faster, and a light comes on in the dash saying "lamp out". I've checked all the bulbs, and all the elements are working. I just talked...

    '06 impala front seat removal

    Dan, the hardest thing I can do is bow my head in shame and thank you for the help you gave, but I was completely wrong, and you didn't catch it. LOL..On my car, that lever is NOT the seat back lever! it's a lumbar pump. Ends up my seat back is tilted by one of the two power seat switches. I...

    '06 impala front seat removal

    My seat isn't quite like the one in the video, but I managed to get it out.(you forgot to tell me I had to disconnect the seat belt, but even with my feeble brain, I figured that out. LOL NOW.....I found the four plastic "tabs" that are held in with clips, and got all four of them loose(on the...

    '06 impala front seat removal

    I'm going to try this later today. When you say tilt the back of the seat, do you mean that is tilting the entire seat? The reason I'm doing this, is that I the seat back position lever doesn't work, so I can't change the position of the back. I assume there's a cable that lets this happen...

    '06 impala front seat removal

    I need to remove the driver's side front seat. I got under the car today and it's completely enclosed. I cannot see the nuts that hold the seat bolts. How do I remove the seat?

    unlocking trunk when power is out? '06 Impala

    Dan, your first reply would work, unless the trunk is full of stuff, then you couldn't reach the release handle. Secondly, since that isn't something you would readily be prepared for, one may not have the necessary tools to remove the seat, plus no mention of whether or not the bottom would...

    unlocking trunk when power is out? '06 Impala

    Have an'06 Impala I picked up. The trunk has no external lock. It has a button on the dash. What happens if there's no battery power, and I need to open the trunk? My owner's manual refers to doing it if the car has a split seat back, but mine is a solid seat back, and can't be "flipped...

    Rear defroster doesn't work, '06 Impala

    I got the plug out to where I could see it clearly and figured out how to separate the halves. Sure enough, the pin for the defroster was cooked. I made the repairs as in the video and it works like a champ. I even left the power on for a good five minutes to be sure there was no overheating...

    Rear defroster doesn't work, '06 Impala

    got a bit ahead of myself. At the connector under the right fuse panel, there's a big tan "lever". It appears I have to push that lever to get the plug to separate. I don't want to break anything, but modest pressure on that "lever" doesn't do anything. Am I missing something here, or am I...

    Rear defroster doesn't work, '06 Impala

    OK. The relay has hot power, and also the switch turns off and on at the relay. I can get to the plug under the left side kick panel below the fuse panel, as shown in the video. There are NO burnt or discolored wires. Now, on both sides of the rear window are connectors. I tried grounding...

    Rear defroster doesn't work, '06 Impala

    I will check that out. Good video. Hope I can get to that plug. I don't have any special tools to pop the plastic push pins out, but will try my best. It didn't say in the video, but when he inserted the relay and heard it click, can I assume he had the switch on in the dash?

    Rear defroster doesn't work, '06 Impala

    How does the "connector" come off at the window? Mine seem like I'd need to remove the darn headliner to get to it

    Rear defroster doesn't work, '06 Impala

    having bought my '06 Impala only a few months ago, and keeping it in the garage, AND the very warm weather, hasn't required me to try to use the rear window defroster until today. It doesn't work. The only thing I see in the book is a relay for it. The indicator light in the switch lights up...
