1997 Plymouth breeze 2.0 4cyl I can not get my brake lights and running lights and directionals and backup lights and reverse lights to work anymore fuses are all good?
Either all these lights are fed from one live (+ve) wire and that has broken or you have a bad earth wire (-ve) for all these lights; unless many wires have been damaged. Take a length of wire that can take 30A and connect to the -ve side of battery and connect directly to the -ve side of each light and test. then do the same for the +ve side. Best to put in an in-line fuse to this wire (say 10A) to guard against fire and errors. This will help to track down where the fault is.

What is the color of the wire for the tail lights on 1994 Chevy 4x4 Silverado if the tail lights do not work but the brake backup lights do and the fuse is good?
Look under the rear of the truck on the left side frame rail. The wire for the back up lights is light green. The brake/turn signal wire on the left side is yellow. The brake/turn signal wire on the right side is dark green. Your taillights and bumper lights are a brown colored wire. You also have a… black ground wire. I ; those are the wire colors for the rear lamps on my truck anyways. I own a similar Chevy truck. Good luck. I ran into one that may shed some light. The brake light switch harness get damaged from the poor position it is in. It is a real mother to get at too. Post your results. I had the same thing on my '91.It was a headlight switch (MORE)
Why would the tail lights brake lights and speedometer lights in a 1988 Toyota Camry LE not work when the fuses and bulbs are all good?
The Toyota Camry has a weakness with tail lights and break lights. The Camry uses a sensor, called the "Lamp Failure Indicator Sensor", and if it burns out, you will lose your tail lights, or brake lights, or both.. This sensor is a small 2 inch box, which comes in different colours, like yellow, w…hite, grey, for example. It is located in the trunk, driver side. You have to lift up the coverings, and it is attached to the wire harness. If you can find it, just unclip it and remove it from the car. Then, open the back of the box, and check the circuit. If there are burn marks, or some wires are broken, then that's the problem.. A brand new sensor can cost 200 to 300 dollars. You might find one at the wreckers. They usually charge 5 to 10 dollars.

How do you fix the reverse lights on a 1999 Hyundai Accent when all other lights and fuses work but when you shift it in reverse you get no reverse lights?
The problem is the reverse light switch. It is located on the top of the transmission that should sloved your problem.
You have a 94 Toyota Camry and the reverse lights have stopped working why won't they light up the neutral safety switch and brake switch are good also Where are the fuses for the reverse lights?
Answer . Apperently there are no fuses for the reverse light. First check the wiring that goes down the trunk. The wire tend to split due to the trunk going up and down.
Why would your dashboard lights and tailights and parking lights not work but your headlights and brake lights all work fine Fuses are all good and dimmer switch is ok as well?
Answer 1 . Your non-working instrument panel lights, tailights, and parking lights have ONE thing in common, they are controlled by the same switch which controls the headlights.. The working brake lights do not even figure in the analysis as they are on a totally different circuit from ALL of t…hose other lights.. The headlights, tailights, and parking lights ARE on the same circuit, AND are controlled by different sets of contact points inside of the "headlight" switch.. Although there may be more, I can only think of three causes for the symptoms you describe.. 1. A loose, or disconnected wire or harness involving the circuit for those lights.. 2. Corroded contact points within a connector in that circuit.. 3. A defect [probably overheated, "cooked"] in the contact points for those lights INSIDE the headlight switch.. I suspect that 3 is the cause, but due to cost of a headlight switch, and the difficulty in changing it, it would be a good idea to check out 1 and 2 first, as those problems do not generally require the replacement of any parts, only disassembly, cleaning, and reassembly.. I suggest you eleminate numbers 1 and 2 first, then if that does not correct the problem, consider replacing the headlight switch. (MORE)
Answer . \nDepending on the year, the MLPS or trans range sensor is out of adjustment. If you have driven like this for very long, you have probably done a good bit of damage to the trans already and should start saving around $1500 for a rebuild.
99 Audi A4 reverse lights do not work on either side The bulbs are good and there are no blown fuses Brake lights and driving lights are fine What may be causing this?
headlight switch . On my 98 A4 1.8T I had the same problem. The problem was the entire headlight switch on the stearing column went bad.\n. \nI dont know if the headlight switch has anything to do with the reverse lights but from my own experience the reverse light problem is caused by thhe reve…rse light switch which is in the gearbox. I got a price of 53 (ireland) for the part. Hope this helps!! (MORE)
What could cause the reverse - backup lights to not work and what fuse are they on in a Ford Windstar?
Answer My 95 Windstar back-up lights were not working, I had to replace the Gear Position Sensor (Transmission Range Sensor / Neutral Safety Switch) which is located behind/below the air filter, It took 10 minutes, and cost only $23.00 at the local parts store. Fuses - 1999-2003 Models Accor…ding to the Owners Manual, fuse #7 in the INSIDE fusebox protects the following: . Left rear turn lamp, . Backup lamps, . Right stop lamp, . Right rear park lamp, . License Lamps See "Related Questions" below for more Answer fuse #30-25a i/p Check the bulb, check the wires around the transmission, check the fuse. If it didn't help you have to see your mechanic. Check fuse 7 (15 amp) under the left side of the dash. If the fuse is good, the problem is in the rear electronic module. The two back-up lights are individually controlled by this module. The module is behind the panel at the right rear of the vehicle. The white/yellow wire (terminal 10) goes to the right rear lamp and the dark green/orange wire (terminal 9) goes to the left lamp. Now the good news. The rear electronic module gets the signal to turn the lamps on from the powertrain control module. Unless the fuse is bad, this may be more than you can deal with. Take it to Ford or another mechanic that understands the programming involved. Carl (MORE)

What is wrong with the brake lights if all of them work but when you apply the break they don't light up fuses are good and lights are good 1997 Saturn SL2?
car brake switch location . I sounds like the braklight switch is out of position, has failed, or the connector has fallen off. On most cars it is located on a bracket such that when the brake pedal is released it holds the switch open. Get you head down where you can see the brake pedal and how …it is fastened and supported. You should see a wire leading to the switch.. Answer . Could be the brake pedal Stroke sensor. Or maybe a relay.. 97's are bad for tailight wire harnesses. Do the taillamps work? Check for power on the brake wire at the taillight connector. If you have power you have a bad connector OR wrong bulbs (MORE)
Why would the tail lights and dash lights not work on a 1997 Honda Accord if all the other lights work including the brake lights?
Answer . An aftermarket radio installation could be the culprit. If you have an aftermarket/custom radio installed in your vehicle, check the wiring harness to make sure no unused or loose wires are exposed in any way. In my case, I had an unused wire coming out of the harness hanging loose. It …didn't look too threatening but as it turns out, it was the "dimmer" wire (connected directly to the dash lights, which also happen to be on the same circuit as the tail lights). A problem such as this can cause shorts in your electrical system which is why fuses don't last more than a second. (MORE)
Brake lights out on 1997 Suburban fuse is good Tail lights turn signals and hazard lights work I checked the fuse its good?
Answer . check the brakelight switch. it is located under the dash where the brake pedal rests.. Hey its ritchie. If you can click your blinker down and then they work its you blinker switch,but this is my monte.
Answer . \nYou have a short. One of the wires is grounding out or your fuses are blown. Check the fuses under the drivers side dashboard (by your left knee) with a test light. If you look at the top of each fuse you'll see a number (10, 15, 25...) on either side of that number you will see two s…trips of metal. Turn the vehicle on and attach the alligator clip to a ground (Bolt, Door frame...). Touch the pointed end to each strip of metal on each fuse. If the test light "lights up" the fuse is good. If not, replace the fuse with the exact number on the new fuse. If you're fuses are good, then you have an electrical short somewhere and you need a pro mechanic or electrician to find the short and fix it. If you find a "Blown fuse" and you replace it and the new fuse blows then you know you have a short. Good luck.. Answer . \ncheck fuses or look for a broken wire (MORE)
Your brakes lights on your 84 cadi Seville are not working the bulbs and fuse are good all other lights are working what can you do next?
Answer . \nPossible bad switch on the brake pedal? When you push on the brake pedal, it activates a switch, that switch turns on your brake lights. If the bulbs and fuses are ok, check the switch with an ohmeter.
Answer . Yes there is a fuse for your brake lights. Check your fuse box. It should be marked. If the fuse is ok then check the switch. It could be a bad switch or ground.
Possible causes & diagnosis . Possibly: -no power to the fuse -broken wiring between the fuse and the switch -broken wire between switch and bulbs -bad connection of terminals at the switch -bad connection of termnals at the bulbs -no ground at lamps -faulty brake switch Suggeste…d way to figure out what is causing the problem: -use voltmeter to see if there is power coming to the fuse -check for power to the switch (probably located near the brake pedal) -check for power on both sides od the switch with the pedal depressed -check for power at the bulbs with pedal depressed. -check resistance across the bulb to be sure the filament is not broken internally -check resistance between ground terminal of bulb connector and a known good ground (frame, clean metal, or trunk latch) (MORE)
Answer . Hey , I finally got this problem solved. I had to go through every componet from the battery to the switch. I found that the fuse block (Behind the glove box) did not have battery power supply to three fuses. While checking every inch of the Red wire / black tracer I found it had power l…eaving the power distribution box ( under the hood ) but not at the first harness connector under the dash. The wire was burnt in-two about a foot from the power distribution box hidden within the protective loom. The wire insulation had been damaged during factory installation and salt water or soapy car wash water ran down the harness causing the wire to corrode without blowing a fuse. Jeep wiring diagrams (cartoons) made this a more difficult to diagnose and find. I am a happy man now! Thanks, Hunter. (MORE)

How do you fix the reverse lights on a 1987 Nissan Pathfinder when all the other lights and fuses work but when you shift in reverse you get no reverse lights?
Try bypassing the reverse light switch that plugs into the transmission. If your reverse lights come on, voila! Problem solved. Buy a new switch.
make sure gas cap is on all the way and drive it a few tanks and see if it goes off by itself.

What fuse controls the brake lights on a 1984 Chevy camero all lights work except no brake lights when the brake pedal is pushed?
its probably not a fuse at all, but it could be your brake light switch. its under the dash hooked to the pedal. I had to replace one on my 84 t-bird
There should be a fuse for the brake lights. If the fuse is good always check the ground wire.
The check engine light (service engine soon) comes on and stays on when a problem is detected by the self diagnosis system of your vehicle. Generally, the problem is in the emissions or something that is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions, but other causes can trigger the light to come on,… too. To determine the cause, the vehicle will need to be taken to AutoZone or a shop that has an OBD2 scanner, or for 1995 and earlier models, an OBD1 scanner, While a scanner will not give you the magic answer, it will give you a code that narrows down the problem area.

When put in reverse Back up lights do not work Brake lights and tail lights work fuse is good checked bulbs no power please tell you what to check from here?
Check the fuses first. If the fuses are ok check the reverseswitch. The switch is under the dash on some models, and on thetransmission on others. A bad or misaligned switch is the mostlikely cause for no back up lights.
It is possible, although a little unlikely that both bulbs are burned out, so check them first.. Otherwise, either the brake light switch at the pedal is faulty or misadjusted, or the wiring between there and the taillights is broken or shorted.
Why don't the brake lights work but the flashers and running lights work if the bulbs and fuses are good?

Uh...I would first check to make sure your bulbs are not blown. check brake light fuse. If still no trace wiring fro brake lights back. Hope this helps. You might also check the brake light switch on brake pedal.
I had this problem for a few months and it took me forever to figure out what it was. I'll give you the few things I fixed at once to make the light stop coming on. Fill the brake fluid, change the break pads, and make sure that your e-brake (emergency break) is pushed all the way down and is not en…gaged.

Why are the tail lights and license plate lights not working but the turn signals and brake lights and reverse lights are and you already replaced the bulbs and fuse?
Try replacing the headlight switch. Do the front parklights work and not the rear ones? If so check the harness to the rear of the vehicle for breakage.
double check all fuses cause sometimes when you reconnect the brake light they can short out, also make sure that the bulbs twist in all the way sometimes they like to be hard to do but always a good thing to double check. If your still having trouble just stop by a local mechanic shop and ask them,… majority of them will look at it for free being something that little. Hope this helps you out, and good luck. (MORE)
