you need to repair the lights and they will both work and your taillights will work properly

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

The left brake light works the right brake light doesn't and the bulbs is good

with the park lights on both left and right side are lite. but when the brake is applied the right brake lights up and the left goes out(doesn't light up)

you have to take off the panel that is covering around the brake and then you will see the brake light switch on the front side of the brake you can just simply turn it left or right and that will adjust it

Yes. One switch is for the left and right brake light assemblies; and, the other is for the 'third' brake light.

The fuse for the left brake light is # 5 and the right and 3rd brake light fuse is # 17 in the fascia fuse box

Number 7 fuse on the right brake light in the trunk fuse box number 5 for the left side brake light also in the trunk.

A third brake light is used to provide a deceleration warning to vehicles that can't see the left and right lights. You can learn more about these brake lights at the Wikipedia.

Right side bulb might be blown.

More than likely you have a burnt out bulb at the front signal light, rear signal light, or brake light on the right side.

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

something as simple as a burnt bulb or the wire to the light could of been stripped by rubbing against metal

If you mean the brake light switch (tail brake light) , is in the upper part of the brake pedal. Just follow the brake pedal up and you will see two rubber buttons(switch stopper) and their respective switches, those are for the brake light switch(left) and the cruise control(right)

You might want to check the brake light bulbs on both sides to make sure the are in correctly and clean sockets.

you put the candles in from right to left and you light them from left to right.

If your parking lights are on and your left brake light doesn't work, the brake may have burnt out. You might also have a wiring problem.

If it is a red circle with serrated "parenthesis" to the right and to the Left, then it's your brake warning light. The brake sensors are telling you there is something wrong with the brake system, IE: pads, fluid, sensors, etc.

Brake Light Not OperationalSince the left brake light works, we know that the fuse is good, the brake light switch is good and working, and the wiring to the left brake light assembly is good and working.That suggests that the problem with the right brake light is one or more of these things:1. The filament in the right brake light is burned out or broken, or2. There is an "open circuit" condition in the wiring to the right brake light.3. Since the left works, look for the fault to be in the wiring "from" where it splits off of the main wiring harness to go to the right brake light assemblyThe cause of the open circuit could be one or more of the following:1. A wiring harness connector which has become disconnected,2. Buildup of corrosion or road film inside a connector between the metal contacts,3. A wire anywhere in that particular part of the circuit which has been cut or broken,4. Corrosion or road film buildup on the metal contact inside the tail light socket which prevents electrical current from flowing into the brake light filament contact of the bulb.5. The ground wire at the right tail/brake light assembly has been cut, disconnected, or corrosion has built up where it is connected to the grounded auto body sheet metal.There could be some other possible causes that I haven't recalled at the moment.Regardless of the specific defect, the cause is an "open circuit!" Find it and correct it, and the problem will go away. Good luck.

Did you try changing the bulb? It might be burned out.

The throttle is on the right handlebar grip. Your brakes are the levers on each handlebar, the front brake is on the right and the rear brake is on the left.

right side brake light is out, left works fine and of course the fuse is good, what is the most common problem?

You start at the brake farthest from the master cylinder. right rear, left rear, right front, left front.You start at the brake farthest from the master cylinder. right rear, left rear, right front, left front.

According to the Owners Manual, fuses #2 and 8 control the left and right taillights.See "Related Questions" below for more

Assuming you have disc brakes, it could be, a sticky or stuck brake caliper on the left side brake. Grease or brake fluid on the friction surface on the left side brake. A restricted brake hose/line on the left side brake. Air in the hydraulic lines on the left side brake.
