View Full Version : Cheap parking signal bulbs won't stay on!!!

Alright, for some freakin reason, my parking signal bulbs behind the annoying amber reflector keep going out. These are the OEM bulbs that came with the car. The passenger side was the one giving me the problems. I took that side out and reseated it and it was working fine until I began driving. . It went out when I hit a bump. That was a few months back. Now my driver's side isn't working. I'm sick of this. I guess it want's me to cover up the reflectors with vinly.

Am I the only one experiencing this?

Is there a moisture problem? maybe they keep shorting out or something...

lol or maybe its a sign to grab the vinyl.

Put in some new 194 light bulbs.

Mine did that, when they where about to wear out.
I would tap the outside lens, it would work for a while & drove me nuts.
Same thing happened to my rear licence plate light
The light bulbs where like all blacken, on the inside of the bulb.
