Hyundai Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello I will help you with your question,
If the connector is cracked you need to replace it as it is making an intermittent connection. You also need to check the rear bulbs and replace any that show discoloration.
Please let me know how i can help you with your questions
That is OK, let me know what happens when you get a chance to check
Thanks for letting me know
I am sorry I am unable to speak on the phone, please post what you found and I will help any way I can.
I am just about to go down to Sunday dinner with my mother (she is 98) and will be offline for about 1.5 hours, can we continue then?
Great, I will post when I get back
It could be the turn switch but it would not be the first place I would check.
Do the hazard lights all work?
You mentioned that a headlamp socket was cracked? Was the turn bulb connector ok or is it the multi connector that has the problem?
This is on the same (driver's side?)
Let me know if the flashers work and all bulbs are the same brightness.
If this is intermittant can you determine what causes it to fail? Rain? Heat?
Then you know the problem is in the front turn lamp, either the bulb is not correct, not installed correctly or the wiring between the switch and the bulb is the problem, The easy way to check the bulbs is to swap sides, if the problem follows the bulb then you know it needs to be replaced. If it stays then either the connector or the wiring is where the problem is. Swapping the bulbs will give you a chance to inspect the socket and that part of the wiring.
Any damage to that front corner?
It can take years for damage to show up but your picture shows the connector for the turn signals to the lamp housing. If you pull it apart you will find a burnt or loose connection. The pins on the other side may be the problem or there may be corrosion inside but that is the problem.
The color of the turn wire is the yellow/orange stripe and the black wire. Get those connected through the connector to the bulb and that will solve the issue.
Please let me know if you have further questions
