How do you fix Christmas lights when a whole row will not work?
How do you fix brake lights that work when you turn on the headlights but do not work when you are braking?
Change the brake bulb. It sounds like one of the filamits is broken in the bulb. Could also be wiring crossed. There is a sensor under the brake pedal. These se…nsors sometimes go bad, and cause your brake lights to become useless, though your brakes work perfectly. This has happened to my in my 89 Accord, and was fixed rather easily. how did u pull the sensor thing off I should have asked this question: On an E320, what causes the center brake light to constantly be illuminated when the headlight switch is turned to ON. And 've got the . The left side brake bulb was loose. Once I tightened it up, the center light went off.
Answer You need basic electrical troubleshooting skills. There are so many possibilities that I wouldn't know where to start without having the car in front of me… to check-out. It could be any of several problems, bulbs, switch, wire, grounding connectors. You've posted a question that can't be answered with the information provided.
You may want to check the integration board located on the back side of fuse box,When this goes bad do to some kind of short the dash and dome lights will go out ,but gauges c…ontinue to work.Had this problem on a 91 Toyota and trouble shooting it drove me nuts for about 4 day,s before I traced it back to this snap in box on lower back side of fuse box......WORTH A TRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A bubble light is a decorative device consisting of a liquid-filled vial that is heated and lighted by an incandescent light bulb. Because of the liquid's low boiling po…int, the modest heat generated by the lamp causes the liquid to boil and bubble up from the vial's base. The liquid is almost always methylene chloride, but some early bubble lights used a lightweight oil. The light from the lamp illuminates the bubbles from underneath, causing them to shine.
A string of Christmas tree lights has 15 lights One of the lights does not work What is the probability that the defective light is the third one from the plug?
The answer was simple. Simply detach the foreign made ylecl branched light connector. Replace the light connector with an American made extention cord. Simple easy, THE FREAKI…NG TREE LIGHTS UP....... You no longer have the motion of lights turning multicolored to clear. But, your tree works to perfection. Don't beat your head against the wall or try and recreate the wheel. This is an American made solution to a foreign made problem. PEACE AND JOY DURING THE HOLIDAY SEASON. TOM AND LISA CHRISTMAS 2011
There are a couple problems you have to check in order to make sure what your actuall problem is. Your first is the fuse, second is the bulb is blown and then third you might …have a short in the wiring between the fuse and the connector plate. If both tail lights do not work you might want to check the fuse first. Once that is replaced, check to make sure that all of the bulbs are the correct bulbs and are not blown. If you have done both and you still don't have any lights you will need to trace as much of the wirng as possible to check and see if it's pinched or cut anywhere, if it is you will need to replace this section of wire with OEM replacement. Depending on the year and make of the vehicle you can get replacement tail light assemblies at parts stores or junk yards.
I found this article on the internet explaining why we have Christmas lights Something about the glowing colors tells us that it's time to greet a new holiday season and spre…ad good will. We string bulbs of all sizes all over our trees and homes. It is the visual that says Christmas is here. Just about everyone loves lights. But did you ever stop to wonder: Why do we decorate with Christmas lights? It's a metaphor. According to the Gospel of Matthew, the light of the star of Bethlehem alerted the wise men to the birth of Jesus. Today, many astronomers doubt the star really existed. People put small candles on Christmas trees starting in the 1600s, but the Germans made it popular 200 years later. It was American know-how that invented the electric light bulb. Thomas Edison's assistant, Edward Johnson, invented the first string of electric light bulbs in 1890. Whether the "star of Bethlehem" story is true or not, there is little doubt that today, there's a special kind of magic in Christmas lights. As for LED Christmas lights, they do cost more up front, but they will save your family energy and money down the road. I think Christmas lights are a great way of getting into the festive spirit and make the house look great too. If you are looking to buy xmas lights, i would recomend taking a look on www.xmaslightsuk.com as they have a great range of sparkly lights!
You need to isolate the problem. Since your tail lights don't work, check the dash lights. Are they out too? If so it could be a fuse. Check the fuses to see if you've blown… the one that controls the tail lights. If you HAVE, you need to find out why. Often a trailer plug can be shorted causing the fuse to go. If you have a plug for the trailer lights, get under the back, unplug it and bypass the trailer plug. Note that the tail light wiring harness in the back has an assembly that allows you to plug in a trailer connection. If the fuse is good, start with a meter and work toward the front. Does the truck have side clearance lights? Do they work? Do the front clearance lights/parking lights work? If you're getting dash lights but no tail lights or clearance lights, check the headlight switch. It has several outputs, one for headlights, one for clearance and tail lights and one for dash lights which can be dimmed. If ONLY the clearance/tail lights are failing to work, make sure the switch is functioning properly. To do that, pull the 4 screws around the dashboard bezel, then carefully pull the bezel toward you. The switch assembly is on the left, don't disconnect it yet. Get a good volt meter or test light and start probing around. You should see an input and output wire for the headlights, they will be larger than the others. Verify that you know how to test the power output by connecting the meter with the negative to vehicle ground and the positive to the connector or lead that you're testing. Next, test the input for the dash, tail and clearance lights. If the fuse is good you should be able to find the appropriate voltage on the input line and the voltage should be present when you turn on the parking lights on the output line. If you DON'T have voltage on the output with the switch on but you DO have voltage to the input. it's the switch. Amazingly, they aren't too expensive from the dealer. There are lots of possibilities, you just need to find out what's wrong, and DON'T just start throwing parts at it. KNOW what's wrong before you replace anything. Which is what I did, costly! What I did below and the fix! I have the ANSWER for BRAKE LIGHTS NOT WORKING & TAIL LIGHTS on 1994 Chevrolet Suburban when all other remedies FAIL! My nightmare experience went through every part replacement I could think of, Bulbs, new tail light circuit boards, relay, in dash head light switch. Even had a mechanic tell me the problem was going to be in the steering Column wiring harness which connected to all of the other electrical areas of the truck. Made sense and there was a ribbon of about 20 wires heading up the column from under the dash. I'm getting 12 volts at the rear circuit board contacts when I press the brakes but no LIGHT from the bulb. So after the mechanic messed up my steering column replacing the wiring harness the problem remained. What I didn't catch was the reading on the volt meter was negative 12 volts. A reverse polarity problem which will happen when?
it means that one of the indicator blubs have blu which causes them to flash quickly
Answer Sometimes the light switch will wear and ground out, which then u need to replace it. But 1st check all your door switches, you know the little retractable… nipple that the door pushes in when shut. They are in the cars inner door frame when you open the door. One could be bad?
Your trunk light switch needs to be replaced. The switch is located in the latch assembly of the trunk lid. You do not need to replace the whole latch, just take it apar…t and take out the small black switch that has a metal lever coming off at about a 30 degree angle. You can buy a new one from the dealer for like $20 and fix the problem yourself. Do a search at VWvortex.com for more info. Details of my problem: When the metal lever is moved it comes in contact with the switch. The switch is normally closed, which means when nothing is pushing the switch, it completes the trunk light circuit and allows 12V to power the trunk light. When the trunk is closed, the switch is pressed and the circuit is open (light off). Mine was bad (tested with a multimeter) and had a resistance of 500 Ohms or so rather than a short when depressed (closed). This was stealing the voltage that was intended for the trunk light, so that the light only received 3-6V. A new switch had a zero resistance (short) across the terminals and operated properly (12V to the light). Aside: You may want to upgrade the trunk light while your at it. Grab some neon looking Cold Cathode light bars used for computer cases (run on 12V). I used white. I zip tied the light bars to the top of the inner trunck area, then and wired them to my stock light bulb socket. These things are much brighter and in a better position than the stock bulb, and can be had for $10 at Frys.
The problem is reported on many web sites. The power supply board for the display gets to warm and melts some of the solder connections. You will need to remove the radi…o from the dash. Remove the display panel from the radio and the top cover panel. When facing the front of the radio, there is a small board on the left side of the radio. It is held in place by two bendable tabs, one at the front of the radio and the other in the circle in the metal housing (both are in an area of white paint). You will also need to remove the screw in the rear heat synch. At this point, the board will be lift up easily. With a magnifing glass find any cracked or bad solder joint and touch it up. Be careful, the SMD are not glued to the board so they can slip when the solder is hot. Good luck.

Check the fuse, check the bulbs and check the brake light switch, in that order.
How do you fix brake lights that don't work when headlight are on but are on when the headlights are off?
I had a problem once with my 97 Ford F 150 where the brake lights were reversed. On all the time except when I pushed on the pedal on the wires that went to my boat trailer. … It was a simple relay that was fried. Took it to Firestone and there "Master Repairman" said everything was off on the trailer electric connection. I knew that was incorrect because it used to work just fine. Took it to the Ford dealer and within 20 min diagnosed the problem with a cheap fix of about 30 dollars.
its because they are in a parallel circuit not a series one. basically if one light blows, it allows the same amount of electricity to flow to the rest of the circuit :) hope… that helps, im not the most amazing at physics, so sorry if its not using the correct terms
