About a week ago I noticed that the right turn signal on my 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan was “clicking fast” when I turned it on. I remembered from one of my previous cars that this might mean my turn signal bulb needed to be replaced. I checked them all out, and the rear passenger bulb was burnt. The auto store only sells them in packs of two, so when I replaced the bulb (a quick fix), I replaced both.
Fast forward to yesterday. My wife informed me that someone had told her our taillights were not working now. The brake lights work, the turn signals work, but when the lights are on (at night), the taillights are not. Tonight when I got off work I checked the fuses, and they were fine. So when I got home, I decided I would take the light covers off again and inspect the bulbs. I took both bulbs out of their sockets and they looked fine. I put them all back in, refastened the light covers, and had Kim turn on the lights.
Guess what. They work now. It’s the weirdest thing.
