Saturn Side Marker Lights

Troubleshooting Saturn Side Marker Lights

Did you know that by simple having functional side marker lights on your vehicle, you could actually help prevent about 100,000 nonfatal road-related accidents and injuries per year? Basing from this statistics, all types of vehicles in North America were required to have front and rear side markers. So if your Saturn side marker lights seem to be acting up, better check them up before you get flagged. Here are some tips that you can follow:

No power.

Your Saturn side marker lights, just like the other automotive lightings, help you see vehicles that are approaching at an angle ahead, especially at night. This precaution could prevent road accidents or at least minimize the severity of the crash. But if your side marker lights are busted, you are at risk of all possible kinds of accidents. Dead lights are usually due to either a blown fuse or busted bulbs. Check your vehicle's fuse box for any blown fuse at the side marker bulb assembly. Reattach any loose electrical connection to the assembly and check if the lights will work. If not, try replacing the bulb with a new one. If the lights will work this time, then the bulbs are already busted.

One light is dead.

Both front and rear side marker lights are required to be used when driving at night. If one side marker light won't work, start diagnosing the problem. Open your vehicle's hood and check the under-hood fuse box. Locate the fuses for the side marker lights assembly and look for a blown fuse. Usually, you can determine if a fuse is blown if it has a broken metal inside it. Replace any blown fuse immediately. Also, make sure that all the connections are intact and that all the lights are receiving sufficient power. You can use a multimeter to check the voltage. A busted bulb could also be a culprit in this problem. Replace any broken bulb as soon as possible to restore your side marker lights.

Lenses are cracked.

Over time, the lenses of your side marker lights will wear out. Having cracked lenses increases the risk of your bulbs getting broken. In this case, you have no choice but to replace them. Replacement lenses made from high-quality and durable plastic are readily available in any auto parts store.
