    This is a common problem. The bulb socket goes bad and needs replaced. There is a TSB for this because initially the dealer would often replace the whole turn signal assembly... then they started replacing the socket. I had this problem, dealer replaced many bulbs under warranty but they always eventually stop working. After warranty, I checked the bulbs and they were always good... so it's an electrical issue.

    What I believe happens is the bulb plastic partially melts in the socket which causes intermittant problems. You can't really clean the melted plastic in the socket, so you have to replace the socket. It's nice because the socket can be replaced without having to splice anything... just disconnect and reinstall. But you will need to remove the turn signal assembly. As other stated, it's easiest to access through the wheel well (nobody takes the bumper off).

    I think these are the sockets you need, GM P/N 19120947 ( AC Delco number LS 234)... replace and install new bulbs.

    After I replaced the sockets, haven't had any issues in 3+ years. Prior to that, every month a bulb stopped working. Seems like half the SRX's I see driving around have this bulb not working.

    Mobil 1 $26 at Walmart 5 qt jug get two if you have the 3.6 you will need it and the Ac delco filter $8 at Autozone way cheaper without the wait at a dealer or shop. Oil change takes less than 10 mins in these trucks.

    I choose not to shop at Walmart and our 3.6 uses less than 1 quart between the oil life monitor suggested oil change intervals.I can't do much of anything in ten minuets regarding automobile service.At my most recent oil change visit I sat in the customers lounge drinking free coffee watching an episode of "Perry Mason" on a flat screen TV and stayed about 20 minuets after the work was finished to see how Perry proved his client innocent.I buy my extra quart of Mobil 1 at Advance Auto Parts when it's on sale.One lasts ten months to a year.

    Are you referring to the small round lights inside the headlight housing?

    What I found was that the filament in the bulb was still fine, but that the electrical lead had melted into the base of the bulb. So the bulb was technically still good, it just wasn't making contact with the socket. My solution was to put some foil under the leads of the new bulb. I slid a strip under both leads and then used a razor blade to cut them....don't want them touching.

    This spreads out the heat and contact area on the plastic. Well see if it makes a difference.
