Q: Q: Turn signal is out

asked by on

The front passenger's side turn signal is out.

Hi there. Bulbs going out is pretty common, however, other SRX owners have reported many issues with the bulbs burning out prematurely and having to replace them multiple times in a year. To replace the bulb, either the tire or front bumper need to be removed to access the socket which can be costly in labor, especially doing it multiple times a year. A common cause of this issue is the sockets that hold the bulb in place get too hot when the bulbs are on, causing premature failure. This melts the plastic and can cause issues with the overall connection. You should have a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect for electrical problems and the other components in the circuit, such as relays and fuses, for damage.
