Default 00 Buick LeSabre tail light

There is a problem with my left tail light, for breaks and normal use at night, the light is on, however it doesn't blink as a turn signal. The clicking and interior signal are going faster then normal, which is why I know of the problem. I tried getting in there but 2 of the bolts didn't want to move and I just ended up stripping off some of their paint.

I would start by checking ALL of the turn signal bulbs. Usually a blown bulb will cause that problem. I don't know for the buicks, but I know some cars have more then one turn signal bulb in the back, along with more then one in the front. Check all bulbs and replace any / all burnt out ones and see what that does.

What year LeSabre do you have? Please click on "Profile" at the top of the BonnevilleClub screen page and add your year and "LeSabre" in the "signature" portion of your profile so it shows up whenever you post. THis way we know what year you have and those on the club that are familiar with your car and year can help you easier.

I am pretty sure one your tail light bulbs is burnt out like Ryan said. Are the bolts that you are trying to remove tail light bolts? If so, that seems pretty odd that they are fighting you. They shouldn't be that tight unless somebody applied some locking compound or epoxy to them. Can you take pics of the bolts so we can see what your up against?

Well, I got into it this morning and got the bulb out of the casing with the 3 wires that go into it. I just wigged them all and it starting working. I'm guessing the wire that controls the blinking was somehow loose. Anyway, thanks for the help.
