Isuzu Rodeo Cornering Light

Ways to Troubleshoot Your Isuzu Rodeo Cornering Light

The Isuzu Rodeo cornering light is there to provide extra illumination in the direction of your intended turn or lane change. While it works alongside the turn signals, this light does not blink at all, instead it stays lit up. If the cornering light stops working, you will have one less light to communicate to other drivers with. When this happens to you, follow these guidelines to learn how to diagnose the problem.

Always check the bulb first

The most common cause of cornering light-or any automotive light-failure is a burnt-out bulb. If you have a spare bulb on hand, place it in the socket and see if it turns on. If it does, then the bulb's filament just broke. However, if the bulb still does not light up, then there might be a different problem.

Make sure that everything is plugged

One weird thing about the cornering light is that it is wired into something else separate from the headlight assembly. One of the things it is connected to is the beeping box-the component that makes a sound the moment you insert your keys in the ignition. Unplug this box and reconnect it, then test the cornering light again. This is a common quick-fix for the component, but if it does not work for you then you might have to take a look at the circuit breaker or fuse.

Inspect for blown fuse or circuit breaker

A circuit breaker is a small device designed to break the contact between the power source and the cornering light, just like what a fuse does. Once the contact is broken, the component will not work. A circuit breaker is found anywhere within the lighting system. Look through all the connections of the cornering light to find them. Check your fuse box as well, replacing any blown fuses you find.

It might be the ignition switch's fault

Before going ahead to check the rest of the wiring, you might want to take a look at your ignition switch. In many vehicles like the Isuzu Rodeo, the power for the lighting circuits comes from the battery terminal of the ignition switch. Check the connection and the fuse for this component and make the necessary repairs.

  • Tips on Keeping Your Isuzu Rodeo Cornering Light Clean 27 February 2013

    The Isuzu Rodeo cornering light is there to provide extra lighting in the direction of the turn or lane change you will take. While it only works as an auxiliary light in conjunction with the turn signals, keeping this component in top shape will help maintain your overall vehicle's performance and look.


    Clearing up the cornering light

    A fogged cornering light is not only unsightly, but it can also be dangerous if you neglect to fix it. When this component is oxidized, other drivers will not be able to see it illuminated. To restore your fogged cornering light's clarity, follow these tips:


    When removing the cornering light, follow the instructions given in your owner's manual. You might cause a wire to ground or a circuit breaker to blow up if you are not careful in removing the component.


    Dip a soft-bristled toothbrush in a shallow bowl of warm water mixed with one tablespoon of dishwashing liquid. Then, scrub the component in order to loosen any dirt or debris caught up on the surface. Pay attention to any niches and really soiled areas.


    Add a dollop of toothpaste onto a soft-bristled toothbrush and scrub the cornering light with it. The abrasiveness of the toothpaste will cut through any remaining dirt without harming the component.


    Using a wet cleaning rag, wipe off the toothpaste or cleaning solution right after you scrub the cornering light in order to prevent buildup of soap suds.


    Apply a small amount of cooking spray onto a dry cleaning rag and rub it onto the cornering light. This should restore the component's clarity and add protection against further buildup.


    Waxing the cornering light

    Your cornering light can get fogged on the outside especially during the winter. To make sure that this component is as bright as ever, try this routine:


    Clean the cornering light using any of the methods given above.


    Rub car wax on the light, let it dry, and buff it off. Do this twice for superior cleaning.


    Waxing the cornering light will prevent road slush from refreezing on the component; even if it does, you will have an easier time removing it because of the wax.
