Default My left turn light (rear only) won't work

but the front one does but it flashes very rapid as do the indicator light on the control panel. I cannot see how to get into the housing of the rear lights to check it out and I don't even know if that's where I need to be looking. Any ideas? This is a 2004 Saturn Ion 2, the 2.2L automatic.

Where should I check???

um, all cars have this as a built in indication telling you one of your bulbs is out. the rear taillight assembly comes off by removing the three torx head fasteners on the black part of the housing. you can pick up a set of torx from advence auto or a similar store, a set is helpful because there are a lot of places to use them on this car.

I think they're referring to the fact that you have to use a torx driver

lol my bad... I was looking at the name, and did not read the hole post. Not the first time I have made that mistake, probably will not be the last either.

Default Re: My left turn light (rear only) won't work

I replaced the bulbs and found out that wasnt the problem. Apparently water or at least some condensation has been getting inside the assembly and it got into the socket of the bottom bulb. I need the whole shebang replaced I think since there may be a leak on the seal of the current assembly but at the least I need the wiring part that has all 3 sockets on it. Any idea where I can get one at a reasonable price??

any idea how I can get the part #? I tried googling for tail light assembly wiring harness and can't find anything but the assembly (which we'll need anyway if its leaking)
