Check your brake light switch at hte brake pedal.
Most likely a fuse.
Those tail lights could be the brake lights you are seeing and that would be a faulty brake light switch or the brake light switch is out of adjustment.
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.
There's a switch that the brake pedal engages when pressed that makes the brake lights go on. this switch may be stuck.Or the peddle staying on switch
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.
Blown fuse, both lights are burnt out, There is a wiring or ground issue.
check the fuses
Tail lights and brake lights fuse.
Next step would be to check the fuses
It could be a blown fuse. Tail lights and brake/turn are on separate fuses. Apparently there is not a ground problem since brake/turn works OK.
Tail lights are usually on the same fuse with interior lights and dash lights. That is so you will know when the fuse is blown. Brake lights are usually on a different circuit. If a fuse is blown, try to figure out the cause rather than just replacing the fuse.
bad connection at the bulb, short in the wire or a bare wire. hope it helps. duboff
check the fuse for the brake lights, they have thier own. also check the brake light switch at the at the top of the brake petal
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.
You probably need to replace your brake light switch. It's near the top of the brake assembly, beyond a trim panel. The fact that all three brake lights don't work rules out problems in the multifunction switch (the cause of similar problems affecting only the two rear lights.)
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
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 bulb is burnt out. If the problem was a fuse, then all brake lights and probably the dashboard lights would be out as well.
I own a ford f150 and my tail lights are not working, but my brake work. What could wire or what could be causing that.
Check the brake switch at the pedal.
What would cause your fuse to blow when you turn on your lights on your 1993 mazda 323 the fuse to the tail lights on dash lights blow?
Check fuses or headlight switch
nothing it could just be the tail lights coming on.
