r=open lift gate, remove 2 screws, gently pull out lens assembly, replace top bulb with #1157
change the light bulb,
If only the right rear brake/signal light is effected it is not the fuse. Inspect the right rear brake/signal bulb, socket and wiring.
More than likely you have a burnt out bulb at the front signal light, rear signal light, or brake light on the right side.
The left brake light works the right brake light doesn't and the bulbs is good
i have conected the black and red wire to the brake and it works (the brake light that is) and i conected the blue and white to the signal lights each wire being left and right signal and it all works. but when i brake all of the light lights up the red bar for the brake and the orage bars left and right when i signal left or right whiles braking the signal works but the other signal light sticks on with the brake light. so if any one as any idears please let me know thanks
Turn Signal Light Doesn't Work, but the Brake Light DoesMost vehicles use a single lamp [bulb] for the tail light, brake light, and turn signal functions.That lamp usually has two filaments: one serves both the tail light and brake light functions while the second filament serves the turn signal function.You description of the issue sounds like the turn signal filament is burned out, while the other filament is not.Another, but less probable cause could be that the conductor [wire] supplying electrical power to the right turn signal filament has either been cut, or corrosion has built up within one of the wiring harness connectors somewhere in that circuit. Corrosion acts to cut off the flow of electricity.
Have you checked the fuses or bulbs?
b/c your brak light is blown..and all the rest will work but that one.that or you have a fusa that is not working one of the 2
i have a 72 nova and the left turn signal blinks faster than the right what is my problem
1976 Chevrolet El Camino turn signal / brake light bulb lamp replacement: Purchase the correct replacement turn signal / brake light bulb(s) first, before disassembling the vehicle. See sources and related links below for replacement turn signal / brake light bulb information. Then consult your owner's manual for the replacement procedure. As simple as it sounds, the owner's manual is the best place to start for turn signal / brake light bulb lamp replacement instructions and illustrations. You may want to consider replacing both left and right at the same time in order to keep brightness and color equal (optional).
Vehicle side, Brown, running lights Yellow, left signal/brake light Green, right signal/brake light Black, ground Trailer side, white is ground
According to my Haynes manual, Black on both sides is ground On the right (passenger) side, Dark Green is the brake light/turn signal and Brown is the tail light. On the left side, Yellow is the brake light/turn signal and Brown is the tail light The center brake light should have a White wire (12v+) and a black ground. FriPilot
At the right rear light the brake light wire is white. There is a manufacturer installed connector for a trailer lighting kit use located about 12 inches ahead of the left rear tail light behind the plastic panel holding the accessories options. The connector holds an orange wire for continuous power. It also has the white wire for brake lights. It has the dark green for right signal lights, yellow for left signal. At the right rear signal light assembly there is more than one dark green wire.
Question: Does the turn signal blink on the right rear? I suspect not. Both the brake light and the turn signal use the same filament. If one is burnt out, the other will not work either. If so, the bulb needs replacing.
Hmmm, kind of unusual because the same bulb filament serves BOTH the blinker and the brake function. It could be a short in the wire from the brake switch leading back to that particular bulb and if the left brake light work okay it would have to be somewhere AFTER the wires leading to the rear lights branch off from one another. Are you CERTAIN that the right rear signal blinker DOES work?
may be the connector that the bulb plugs into
Problem may be in the steering column turn signal not cancelling completely - try "jiggling" stalk and have assistant watch brake light
check the light bulb same double element bulb for both lights
you have a blown bulb, some vehicles use a double filiment bulb that operates the turn signal and brake light
the turn signal switch sends current to the turn signal flasher. it then goes to the bulb. The turn signal switch will turn on the turn signal and when the brake is applied it cancels out the brake light as it is a duel element bulb. 1 element is for brake and turn and the other is for parking lights. you can not have a blinker and a constant feed to the same element of the bulb at the same time.
Check the bulb, it is double filamented with the smaller being for the stop and turn Check the socket for power and ground and/or corrosion
May sure the housing is good and not Corroded. If it is Corroded you may need to replace it.
AnswerIf this were my car, I would replace the brake light switch ( near the brake pedal ). This could be the problem and is about the cheapest thing to start with. Good luck.check the ground connection at the taillights a bad ground will cause this
First you buy a good-quality 3rd brake light kit appropriate for the mounting angle on your particular car -- see the links below for examples. If your car's left and right brake lights are separate from the left and right rear turn signals (different bulbs for the brake lights and turn signals), then you just follow the instructions with the kit. If your car has combination brake/turn lights (the same red light burns steadily for brake light or flashes for turn signal) then you must run a new wire from the brake light switch to the rear of the car to feed the new 3rd brake light -- cars with combination brake/turn lights route power from the brake light switch through the turn signal switch and then from there to the back of the car; if you try to get away without running the new wire, the 3rd brake light won't work properly and you'll backfeed other lighting circuits with random results.
