When inadvertently deer hunting, did front end damage require collision shop repairs or did you perform repairs? In either case, did you examine all wiring associated with turn signals in the area of damage? Some wiring repairs may be simply cutting and splicing ends together with electrical tape. Electrical tape is very poor for vehicle repairs as the adhesive turns gooey and dries out with tape peeling. It should be obvious when you see it and may be loose wire repairs. Butt connectors are better. A little more expensive - butt connectors with heat sealing ends using heat to shrink tubing for weather proofing electrical repairs exposed to weathering.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

The DRL / turn signal circuit go though the BCM , The codes will need to be cleared in the BCM

Sorry I never got back to you guys have had family matters..

The led ones I want to use just do not work in this car for some reason but I put new regular ones in and they are back to working fine after disconnecting the batter for some time.. Thank you for you advice..


And lol after deer hunting it was just new panels and pulled out the radiator support as itís an old car high mileage it has liability insurance only And with $200-$250 it got new good and headlights. We inspected the wiring and checked everything els that could have been affected..

Thanks again for the help.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
