If it happens to be a Saturn LS, you might be able to get them replaced as part of a recall. If it's not a recall issue, replace the sockets and make sure you use some dielectric grease to keep the sockets from oxidizing and burning out. Sometimes the voltage regulator in your alternator can become faulty causing excess or lack of voltage. usually the lights are the first to notice, blown bulbs etc. I would recomend getting your alternator tested.

How do you replace signal sockets in a 2002 Olsmobile Intrigue?

Did you mean turn signal sockets? Replacements can be bought with pigtail leads that can be spliced in, or OEM replacement parts may have an in-line connector. I haven't replaced any sockets on my Intrigue, so I can't speak from experience. Most of the sockets I have replaced were cracked or heat damaged, and they usually snap in or twist in to the bezel or housing. Be careful to first observe how the socket is mounted as the all-plastic parts on cars can easily break.

One of the reasons why you may not have turn signals or flashers on the left side of your 1998 Ford Explorer if all the bulbs and sockets are good is you may have a blown fuse. Try replacing the light fuses or visiting an auto parts store to test the fuse to see if it is bad.

Why would the turn signals and flashers not work on a Mercury Grand Marquis after a jump start if the fuses and circuit breakers seem to be OK?

First check that ALL of your light bulbs are working for the signals. Some models will freeze operation of signals if a bulb is out to let the operator know that one needs to be replaced. Next check the flasher solenoid(s) near the steering column / brake pedal area. They are very cheap to replace. Also check that ALL of the signal sockets for the bulbs are in good shape. If they are burnt then it is the same as a bulb being out.
