Toyota Corolla
Turn Signals and Hazard Lights

Why would the rearbrake lights of a 1990 Corolla not work periodically but come back on when you hit the back cover for the bulbs?

Sounds like an intermittently open circuit. Check for loose or cooroded connections at the socket where you plug in the light bulb. Also you could clean and adjust the socket itself for a snug fit. You'll notice two soldered points on the bottom of the bulb, these points should fit snugly into the socket casing. Use a pair of needle nose plyers to gently pull the small strip of metal, located in the center of the socket, a little at a time until a snug fit is obtained. If there is any play between the bulb and the socket this could cause intermittent operation. Make sure your head lights, brake lights and running lights are off before making adjustments.

Check fuse for parking lights (same circuit) Check bulbs could be a bad headlight switch

If your 92 Toyota Corolla taillights are out, but the dash light and fuse work fine, the bulbs could have burn out. Replace bulbs on each side.

Check the bulbs first, I've seen where both burn out and you can be lead to believe you have an electrical problem.

What model of Corolla ? You have to take the dash board out and the bulbs can be removed and replaced from the back. The dashboard on the Corolla is not that difficult to take out, but you have to do it slowly and carefully.

First off are your dash lights out if so its more likely to be a fuse that you need to replace check your owners manual the dash lights in a corolla are LED lights so its not likely they have burned out. if your looking to change the color of the bulb go to an audio installer for directions on removing your dash panels to get at the bulbs to replace them there's one in your center section and i don't know about the instrument cluster

Headlights are light bulbs not too much different from the bulbs in your home...they must be periodically changed. In short...you have a blown bulb. If you replace the bulb and the lights still do not work you must check the fuse to see if it is blown. If it is not the bulb or the fuse, you have an electrical problem requiring a mechanic.

on some cars the tail lights and brake lights are totally different bulbs gain access to the bulbs and have someone push the brakes so that you can determine which bulbs are the brake lights and replace the tail lights

AnswerThe bulbs for the brake lights are usually separate from the normal tail light bulbs. Check and replace the brake bulbs first, and if they are still not working examine the fuses, switch and wiring.

You don't state what they are or not doing. If none of them work, change the flasher. If just one side works replace the bulbs that are not working.how do you get at the bulb to change please explain

LED lights are better than bulbs because they are more energy efficient, and environment friendly. You can definitely get a lot of savings with LED light bulbs.

The gardeners planted the bulbs earlier.We need new bulbs for the lights in the kitchen.

They are different sets of bulbs. You'll have to check the bulbs and wiring if necessary.
