on some cars the tail lights and brake lights are totally different bulbs gain access to the bulbs and have someone push the brakes so that you can determine which bulbs are the brake lights and replace the tail lights

make sure your bulbs are in the right way(tail light bulbs are polarity sensitve). Just remove the bulbs and twist them in the other way(you can do this with the lights on to check if the bulbs are good). Also, I know this is kinda simple, but check to make sure you plugged them back in (I've done it!)

Sometimes the bulbs have just blown, its not the wires as much as the bulb try replacing them with the spare bulbs in the box. But if thats not good enough then return them and get your money back! Simple as that!

Perhaps something in the gear shift that turns on the lights when in reverse position.

If the parking/tailight fuse is good - then it may be a bad headlight switch No tail lights but the bulbs are working? Please explain.

how can i fix lic plate lights not working when bulbs and fuse are good?

if the bulbs are not bad, it is the fuse, if the fuse is good, its the wiring.

It could be the brake light switch (the switch that activates the brake lights when you step on the brake pedal) has gone bad

check fuses, check bulbs, from there see if there is a grond for your reverse lights that may need cleaning. If still no lights, make sure there is a good wire back to the transmission for your lights. Still no luck, look into the sensor on tranny for your reverse lights. Good luck.

check if the bulbs are burnt out. If they arent check the fuse to see if it is blown. Sometimes this is rare the fuse is good, the bulbs are good but the actual switch you use to turn the lights on could be bad, its happened to me once before

The next thing to check is the switch that activates the brake lights. It is probably on the master cylinder.

Check bulbs Check stop light switch Also make sure you have the right bulbs model 2057 bulbs.

Make sure that you used the correct bulbs. If you look at the bulbs in the store, you will notice that some bulbs have one element in them and some bulbs have two elements in them. If you bought the bulb with only one element, you won't have break lights - just tail lights. You need the bulb with two elements. Check the book at the auto parts store and make sure that you buy the correct bulbs. I'm having the same problem with my 1991 Honda Accord. I'm not getting any power to the break lights.The one in the back window wont work either. The Tail lights work but the break light wont. Fuse and bulbs are good. Please help.

Answer: Did you check the light bulbs first. Normally bulbs will burn out quicker than a fuse. If the tail light bulbs are good (don't assume they "look" good), then you will need to take a look at a possible lighting relay issue.

It depends what lights you are talking about, most dash lights are just bulbs. However in the cluster for digital lights and the fog light acessories they are done by LED lights in which you can replace if you know the right voltage. There are a lot of dash lights, so IRepairing Dashboard LightsTake apart the dash (or area where the lights are burned out) and replace the bad bulbs with good ones.

Check the fuses Check the backup switch Check the wiring - make sure that there is good contact.

Usually a fuse. when the fuse blows the dash lights AND tail lights dont work. If your tail lights work and dash lights dont, check bulbs, if all blown at once you may have a shorting problem. If bulbs are good you may have a bad connection. Tracing wires is a big job. Get yourself a good quality test light.

If the bulbs are good, check your stop light switch.
