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.
you pooh on it you pooh on it
Generally, dash lights and tail lights are on the same fuse so that if the tail fuse blows you'll know. When the tail light was "smashed", it shorted out the circuit and blew the fuse. You need to fix the tail light before you can get the dash lights to work.
how do you fix your lighting problem with your 94 chevy cavalier z24 you haveno tail lights dash lights or parking lights
94 mercury grand marque dashboard, hazard, and tail lights do not work?
try replacing all sets of fuses for the hazard and the tail lights.
Are you saying your tail lights themselves do not work and only the brake lights work. If that is the case, check the fuse, and then check the tail light bulbs.
The tail lights and the stop lights work off of different circuits. The stop lights work when the brake pedal is depressed while the tail lights work when the light switch is turned on. Look for a burnt fuse or a bad connection.
replace the break light bulbs?
I have a 1999 chevy Silverado how to fix my day time running lights
If the headlights are on and brake lights work but not the tail lights, it is possible there is a short in the electrical wires. Another cause for this could be that the tail light bulbs are burned out. Most vehicles have more than one bulb inside the tail lights to control different lights at the same time.
take it to a garrage
i got a 2006toyota highlander my tail lights dont work but,every other light works please help me
Look for a fuse labeled TAIL LIGHTS. There are 2 separate circuits, one for brake turn and flasher and the other is for tail lights.
its on different bulbs
In order to find out how to replace broken tail lights on a car, one can go to the WikiHow website. The website has a seven step tutorial on how to fix tail lights complete with pictures.
Open the trunk. Access to the tail lights is from there.
Check for a bad ground
it would be great to know..
I suspect either a faulty ground circuit, or a much easier fix, faulty bulb/bulbs. You might be surprised the havoc a grounded out bulb will cause an electrical system.
your light wires have been crossed somewhere ( probably at the tail lights, brake light circuit crossed with marker lights ) look for recent wiring work on the lights and make sure the proper wires match up.
On a toyota tacoma 2003 SR5 when the tail lights are turned on the brake lights come on and when the tail lights are of the brake lights work just fine what could be the problem. If the truck has a trailer plug, inspect the plug and plug wiring for damage and corrosion.
The tail lights are on a separate wiring than the blinker/brake lights. Look for a blown fuse or a broken/loose wire.
Check the fuse or switch.
It is most likely the tail fuse. The dash and tail lights are usually on the same circuit
