Question about 1989 Jaguar XJ6

1 Answer

Tail light issue

Hello,

I am having an issue keeping my passenger side brake light/blinker to keep working. If I tap the rear lamp relay module (DBC2263) I can get the blinker to work for a bit but then it stops again. I have checked the flasher and that is not the problem. I have cleaned the grounds and that doesn't seem to help either. I am lost on this one.

Sometimes the left brake light is a little slow to start working to. Any advice?

Tyler

    My brake lights on my 1989 XJ6 do not work. I have checked all fuses and replaced the brake module in the trunk. I also checked the bulbs. Is there some kind of micro switch attached to the brake pedal. I have not been able to locate one. Thanks for any help George

07 cadillac cts has no brake light all fuses are good and replace the brake switch.still not working any advice


Stop Lamps
The brake pedal position sensor is a resistive device used to sense the action of the driver's application of the brake pedal. The brake pedal position sensor provides an analog signal that will increase as the brake pedal is pressed.
The brake pedal position sensor receives both a 5-volt reference voltage and a low reference signal from the electronic brake control module (EBCM). When the brake pedal is pressed, a variable signal is applied from the brake pedal position sensor to the EBCM through the brake sensor signal circuit. The fuse block left rear supplies battery positive voltage to the bass relay switch through the BASS fuse. One side of the bass relay coil is permanently grounded at G402. The EBCM supplies voltage to the bass relay coil upon receiving the signal from the brake pedal position sensor. The switch contacts of the bass relay close and battery positive voltage is applied through the bass relay switch to the center high mounted stop lamp (CHMSL), and to the turn signal/hazard flasher module through the stop lamp switch signal circuit. The ground for the CHMSL is applied from G402. The turn signal/hazard flasher module then supplies voltage to the left and right stop lamps in the tail lamp assemblies that have ground at G401 and G402. For export vehicles the stop lamps receive battery positive voltage directly from the bass relay.

Do you know where the rear fuse box is ? Check BAS fuse 15amp. and the bas relay , should be marked on the inside of the fuse box lid . The rear fuse box is located

Fuse Block - Left Rear
In the passenger compartment, under the left side of the rear seat at carpet
Power and Grounding Component Views
Electrical Center Identification Views
Fuse Block - Right Rear
In the passenger compartment, under the right side of the rear seat at carpet.

If fuse and relay are ok your best would be to take to a cadillac dealer .

Where is the stop lamp or brake lamp fuse and panel for a 2007 cadillac cts?


Kevin , this is a very complex way of stoplamp control , I will post GM service Description and Operation of how they work an let you deside if you want to tackle this ! Do the center high mount brake lights work ?

There could be a code stored in the EBCM - electronic brake control module - DTC B3903 Stop Lamp Relay Circuit
DTC C0278 Brake Pedal Position Sensor Not Calibrated
there are several other codes that pertane to the brake lights . you could try Replaceing the bas relay !

Tail lights are not working correctly


I have to believe that with all of the "non related" issues happening that there is a wiring harness problem. If you track the harness back from the tail lights you will probably find a nick or a break in the line. If nothing shows then check the connection point which should be somewhere around your fuel tank. It will be a male/female fitting that will pull apart and you can check at that point with a meter if it is working to that point. If not it then you will have to work your way all the way up to find the fault point.

2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee tail light problem. When the lights are turned on the rear right tail light and blinkers do not work. When the lights are turned off they work like normal. A ground issue maybe?...


hello Anon.
battery charged, fuses good, F10 is RR. park
trailer wring hacks? (inspections find that) and collision damage there RR.
does RF work with RR fails>? both ends of car have park and blink.
I avoid Tail word for that one fact.
if you scan the PCM with a scan tool, are there DTC errors.
not scanning makes work 10x harder.!

"rear right tail light and blinkers do not work." both are dead? "and"
then turn off parks and blinks start working?
maybe the parks and blink wires shorted to gether.
what does not work mean, dead, or stuck on?
all key facts in diagnosis. all that.
i have 2007 GC FSm.

there are 4 elements (lamps actual there)
park is seperate from blink , totally.

the MIP module under hood drives turns off sperate drivers.
LF, RF ,LR, RR. so RR is bad. and not related to front like old cars.
park feed
all park lines go to a single point, the park relay 7 output.
so if something shorts to park all parks mess up.
each line has a fuse. so each can die by self.
There is only 1 park relay #7

so my question is, do any other park lamps mess up.
you said the blinks and parks (tail) do not work.
so? what about all park lamps. side and front.

if only RR fails, no other symptoms, i concur, bad ground. there.

a volt meter can measure bad grounds
with wire to battery neg,
and red meter at ground on lamp base.
if not 0v, or less than (0.5v) a 1/2 volt, its bad.

My 1998 GMC Sierra rear blinkers and brake lights keep malfunctioning When I take the lens apart they will start working if I move them around but does not last. Sounds like a problem with the board, or is...


Yes, you have a bulb socket board issue. From the body styke change in 1988 to 1998, GM trucks have issues with the tail lamp circuit boards going out. Replaced those boards and you will fix the problem.

I have 1999 Mercedes Benz e300 Turbo Diesel and having brake light problem. passenger side of rear brake light is off and found light bulb is okay. How to fix it? -The error message "The Lamp deffective"...


Hi there
Its probably not a fuse issue as that would affect both sides.
when you replace a blub especially the brake lights it is possible to deform that nice flat panel of metalic strips and if you look carefully it sometimes breaks the plastic pins on which it sits, this causes poor connection to the functional bulb, the soloution is easy, get a small piece of card and fold it over till its about 2-3 mm thick then wedge it behind the panel of strips (top outside corner for brake light) and hey presto the light should work again, top tip use an umbrella and the electric seat to make sure the brake pedal is deppressed to check if alone.

99 mercury mystide had rear running light broken


If the driver's side tail light is working, it's not a fuse. Use a test light to check for power at the bulb holder. One terminal will be for tail light, the other for brake/turn light. If the is constant power for tail light, replace bulb. If no power, trace wiring from bulb holder to driver's side junction. Probable broken wire between the two tail lights.
