    Do the DRLs still work up front? These are notorious for wearing the front turn signals out. It isn't a fuse. You have to remove the bumper then to access the bulbs. Use dielectric grease on the contacts of the new bulbs. Also you need I believe a t15 star bit to talk off the cover on the back of the foglight assembly after that its a breeze. There is an easier way for the next time the go out but not too many people want to modify the headlight bracket to do so like I did. Typically a shop will run $140-200 to change 1 bulb.

    Jack up the front, remove the wheels and forward inner wheel well shields. Fairly easy access from there.

    Are those star bit screws easier to reach from that angle?

    I've never removed the bumper to do this, always from the backside after removing the plastic fender shield.
    I remove the screws attaching the light module, and then take it apart on the bench.
    This happens pretty much yearly, I've gotten the process down to about 20 minutes now.

    Even better . I just pull all the tabs out up top then unbolt the headlight I cut off that bracket on the headlight behind the grill after the first time took 2 hours to change all the bulbs. And the star screws I left the bottom 2 out on both sides. Never has any leaks. I can have the bumper peeled forward bothel headlights off and access to both DRLs and back together in 30 mins same time it takes to change the Plugs on my v6. Just found it easier I went through 4 DRL bulbs in less than 8 months finally solved the issues with dielectric grease. Been going strong over a year and a half so far.

    Your turn signal module may be bad; front and rear are separate circuits within it.

    Try the hazard flashers, same bulbs as PK and DRL. Check wiring connector at module or both bulbs are bad.

    Sounds like that module glake mentioned I'm not sure of the location he should be able to point you in the right direction.

    Left front turn signal bulb burned out this morning.Causing what my Bride described as a "happy turn signal" as it blinked so fast.At my request the local Buick/GMC dealer replaced both sides bulbs for the DRL and turn signals for $81 out the door.They removed the front wheels and fender liners and it took over an hour doing it.The parts charge on the ticket for the bulbs was $6.78.The Tech told me the bulb sockets were in good condition.Seemed fair enough to me.I could have saved $74 by crawling around under the front end of the car for half a day provided I had the proper tools and the bulbs delivered for free.
