    Hey Lee! Where do i attach the ground on the turn signal? Would that matter to ground it? I ask because the running light works fine just the turn signal

    Ty, I had to remove the light units and physically drill a hole in the side of the base that the bulbs screw into.

    Then with the units still removed, solder a wire onto the side of the bulb and then attach the other end of the wire to a mounting screw somewhere.

    It's drastic and a pain in the bum but it did the job very well.

    Only problem with this is if a bulb blows you have to remove the unit again and un-solder the wire.
    Everything's good!

    Doobs right, I have had to rework and make new earth connections on a number of cars, especially in the back where the boot suffers from condensation. Even if you make a new earht by baring some clean metal somewhere it can often surface rust over. So, if you make a new earth remember to dab some paint or grease over the top after screwing it down. Solder is even better, but a paint sometimes.

    Hi Tyler,

    Is it Front and Rear turn signals Not working or just one of them, If the Brake light and Front running light works than the earth should be ok, The front turn single bulb will be twin filament bulb, so if it just the front not working then check the bulb. If both Not working but Running light and brake light work ok, then you may want to pull the steering wheel and clean the contacts on the turn signal switch

    .... as Clive mentioned Tyler, I think all my indicators also played up when my rear brake light bulb blew as they're all inter-related.
