sounds like you've got either a bad ground, a grounded hot wire or maybe just a bad bulb. Try another, then if that blows, check the voltage going to the bulb. Also, check for frayed or damaged wires.

The filament would burn out

Signal blinking fastly?

A signal that is blinking fast usually indicates a bad bulb or bad flasher. Check to insure all of the bulbs burn, then check the flasher.

Why is argon used insted of air in the light bulb?

because the oxygen in air would burn causing the light bulb to burn out very quickly.

What would happen inside a light bulb if it were filled with air?

The filament (assuming an incandescent bulb) would burn up very quickly.

What might happen to a bulb if you added too many extra batteries to the circuit?

If you added more batteries in parallel, then the bulb would shine for a long time. If you added more batteries in series, then the bulb would burn very brightly for a short time and then 'burn out'.

Why would a light bulb burn out after two days of use?

If a light bulb is handled roughly before it was installed, the filament holder could have been weakened. Another reason that bulbs burn out before their time is that they are being submitted to a higher voltage than the bulb rated for.

Why would headlight bulb in a Pontiac g6 2006 burn out every 4 to 6 months?

Be careful not to handle the bulb with your bare hands. The grease from your fingers will effect the life span of the bulb.

What would cause the left turn signal to all of a sudden start blinking at warp speed when used while the right one still works like normal?

It means that it is getting ready to burn out...just replace the bulb and it should stop. Either the front or rear turn light is no longer working. Change it out with a new one

Will a light bulb burn brighter if you increase the current?

Yes. A light bulb will burn brighter if you increase the current. Most especially if you increase the current that is flowing through the light bulb.

Why air is not filled in electric bulb?

If air were used in an electric bulb the filament, which becomes extremely hot when the light is on, would rapidly oxidize and burn out in seconds. Instead the bulb is filled with argon, which is inert.

Why life of a bulb ends after certain time span?

By bulb, it is assumed a light bulb is intended rather than a flower bulb or any other kind of bulb. Light bulbs burn out because they are engineered to do so. There would be less profit to the bulb manufacturer if he made bulbs to last longer, which he could if he wanted to. In the early days of bulb manufacture, a bulb was made which still continues to burn over 110 years later. See the link below for more information on the 110 year bulb.

What is wrong if Right turn signal lights do burn but will not flash on 1995 Buick LeSabre?

Sounds like you need a new flasher.

What might happen to the bulb if you added too many extra batteries to the circuit?

If you added the batteries in parallel, then the bulb would stay on for a long time and nobody would get any sleep. If you added the batteries in series, then the voltage across the bulb would eventually become excessive and the bulb would burn out.

How do you replace the front turn signal bulb located on a 2007 BMW 328i?

simple, there is an access panel in the front wheel wells of the BMW 328i.just take the access panel off. there's a tab that you have to twist to get the bulb off. there are no wires coming from the bulb, just the tab that needs to be turned. avoid touching the new bulb with your fingers as they contain oil, which will cause the bulb to burn out prematurely.:-)

Why bulb have vacuum inside?

Because if the thin filament wire was heated in regular air it would burn up.

Why does my turn signal on my jeep wrangle have a fast flash?

A fast flashing turn signal, on most any vehicle, is an indicator that a turn signal bulb is going out or has gone out on that side(i.e. front turn signal on passenger side flashing fast, check the rear turn signal bulb on passenger side.) This will cause the light on your dash board to flash fast as well. This is generaly a good time to replace all of the bulbs, turn signal, running lights, and break lights, as they are so cheap. Also check deck light or top break light if applicable for burn outs.

Is there air in a light bulb?

No. Not normal air. The oxygen in air would cause any light bulb to burn out in seconds. In stead, and inert gas called argon is used.

Can you use a 13.5 volt light bulb in place of a 12 volt Will it be burn as bright?

A 13.5 volt bulb will burn less brightly but last longer.

Does a light bulb have vacuum in it?

Yes, the inside of a light bulb is vaccum sealed to increase the lifespan and brightness of the bulb. If there was air in there, the filiment would burn up and not last very long. This was an important discovery made by Thomas Edison when he invented the light bulb.

What won't burn over a light bulb?


Will four extra volts make a small light bulb explode?

it all depends on what the bulb is rated for4 extra volts on a 120 volt bulb is negligable4 extra volts on a 1 volt bulb will definitely pop the element, but I don't think it would explodeAnswerDepends on the bulb voltage, but it shouldn't explode. If it's a 6volt bulb or lower, it would burn out quickly.If it's a 12volt bulb or higher, it may have a shorter life, but it would be brighter.

Why doesn't the wire in a bulb burn out?

There is no oxygen.If the lightbulb had any oxygen,it would just burn up.But there isn't any,so the wire just goes super hot and glows.
