Drivers side break light

My break light on the drivers side will not work. I've replaced the bulbs twice! The only thing I can think of is to splice the wire from the passanger side to the drivers side, but I don't know which wire it is? What color? How do I do it?? I need help ASAP!! Thanks!!

Meg... check to see if there is power going to the socket. you didn't mention if you replaced the bulb and it blew both times ?

Also check that the ground is good for that socket... sometimes you will see a wire going from the socket to a screw on the car. unscrew it ... use a wire brush to clean the part so it makes a better contact... put it back together and try it out.

If you just wish to do the crossover wire trick .... use a multimeter to determine which wire is positive and which is negative.

p.s. black is generally ground but NOT always... use a meter

2011 ford feista se brake light out on drivers side. Running light and blinker work. Have replaced bulb and socket with same results what do I do now?


Did you try the passenger side brake bulb in the driver side socket (maybe the new lamp is bad)??

If it works, then the problem is either a bad ground connection / wire at / between chassis and the shell of brake lamp socket, or bad 12 volt wire at / between the common passenger 12 volt brake light wire in the harness to the center contact on the brake lamp socket.

My suggestion is if the brake lamp wire is ONLY for brakes - not the directional too, simply add a new wire spliced into the passenger side brake light wire and extend it to the brake light wire closest to the new socket that you recently installed on the driver side. Disconnect the vehicle brake wire from the new socket and wire nut it off or tape it up (so it can't short out if it somehow becomes energized again) and splice this new wire to the new socket.

Test & you're done!

My 2010 Chevy Cobalt drivers side rear blinker won't blink and the front light blinks twice as fast. The passenger side is operating normally. I think the bulb is still good, they look good... Any...


Just exchange the rear signal light bulb for a new one, that will fix the problem Ps, it will be wise to replace the one on the other side as these bulbs have a life expectancy, do them both at the ame time.

Signals and break lights wont work, fuse keeps blowing


You have one of them funny american things where it all works backwards so this old gnarled europeon mechanic would have a direct answer like a real proper car,although i do think this is a opel frontier in my language.What i would do here is to disconnect the fancy brake light switch that these motors have and try checking the wires at the back of the vehicle ,like inside the rubber boot from boot door to the bodywork as this is 99% of the problems i get with hatchback type doors or whatever you want to call them in whatever language you call them.Our europeon vehicles have seperate lights for all three functions ,indicators stop and side lights.plus of course the obligatory reverse and fog lights

Drivers side tail light lighting up at night when head lights are on but break light not working on that side. passenger side not lighting up when head lights are on but break light working on that side....


You probably already know this, however the GMC 2002 Yukon Denali uses the Wagner 3157 (or equivalent) dual element bulb. The running light uses one element whereas the brake & blinker share the other element that burns brighter.

Check to ensure the correct bulbs are being used. Then check all wire harness connections. Since the blinkers function, then it sounds like the connections are good.

It really sounds like there is a bulb issue, so check that first, then let us know the results.

One high beam won't work.


There should be black split tubeing from the head light. Untape and check the connections that have been spliced. Usually the police flasher was hooked up at that point. You may have to follow the wires back to find the break.
