Customer Question
My left tail light...

My left tail light is out... when I turn on the left turn signal my cruise control goes off.

Mechanic's Assistant: While using the cruise control can you accelerate or decelerate? Have you checked the fuses?

Yes, i have had the mechanic check the fuses and they are fine\ that was a while ago the cruise control thing happened only after we replaced the light bulbs

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Chevy?

2003

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Malibu replaced the light bulbs several times
