Right now I'm having an issue with my rear-turn signal.

It has shorted out the light bulb twice in the last past four months. I changed it this morning only for it to short out within the hour.

I used the lights 3057. Turn/Brake lights.

I'm going to dry the socket out when I get back from school hoping that I only have water in my socket. If that doesn't work I will replace the socket. I'll let you guys know by the end of the week.

PS: This has been one pain after the other. I almost screwed myself this morning only to luck out since one of the school police officers where able unlock my car.

Is it the cars fault you locked yourself out? :banghead:

As for the light issue, what started the problem. Did you buy the car new or used? has it been involved in a collision? You mentioned drying out the socket.... can water get into the taillight? If so the problem might just be when the cold water hit the hot bulb it blows out.
