    I have the same problem with my '95 Yukon and have checked all wiring, fuses and replaced the turn signal switch assembly. I did notice a relay under the hood attached to the outside of the fuse block by the master cyl.. It clicked on and off when I depressed the pedal but would stop clicking when the lights would stop coming on. Is this a brake light relay under the hood? Any ideas? Thanks.

    I have no running lights or dash lights and all fuses are good. Also, I have a plow on the front, it's blinkers work, but the headlights don't. My brake lights, headlights (high and low), and blinkers all work fine.

    You do mean the running lights and not the brake lites?? if it is the brake lights you will need a new turn signal switch.

So you mean that you have no tail lights but you have your brake, turn and emergency lights? If so it sounds like your headlight switch.

SOURCE: 97 CAMRY TAIL LIGHTS PROBLEM

You are right you do have a short,but it's easy to fix at the same time it is expensive. In your trunk area you will find a bulb out relay it can be either in the right corner or left corner panel in the trunk area,if not there if may be under the rear deck of the trunk(under the rear window inside the trunk) It might be yellow brown or green.One fron the junk yard will work just as good as a new one.If you are skillful you can open it and solder the burned circuit,but you have to know what you are doing.You also neet to find out if you had a bad bulb that shorted so you can rest knowing that what caused it to burn out in the frist place is fixed.

Hello.

I have a solution for you, as I see your same issue in my shop quite a bit...There are two possibilities:

You may have a broken wire. This is a very common issue.

Open up the trunk lid, and look at the hinge on the driver side. You will see a wiring harness, in a plastic tube, attached to the arm that holds th trunk lid to the car.... Remove the tubing, and follow the wires towards the back seat area. You are probably going to find a wire that has been broken, from the many actions of opening and closing the trunklid. Splice and resolder the wire, and you should be fine.

The other issue is the tallamp failure sensor may have burned out. This too is rather common. Open the trunk lid, and pull back the inner carpeting on the driver side of the trunk. Locate a small box (it will be white or blue), on a brace. The box is closer to the quater panel sheetmetal. Remove the box, and take it apart. If it looks or smells burnt, you need a new sensor.

Tail lights stop working ive change fuse, bulbs, check relay it all check fine turn, brake, hazzards lights all work just the tail & inside cluster lights are not working please help.


The tail lights and dash lights are on two different circuits. The main link would be the headlight switch. I would check for voltage there first.

I have a short to ground problem with my tail/crtsy light circuit ( keeps poppin fuses when the light swith is pulled to on position) also dash lights & tail lights don't work but interior light is on...


Try removing the bulbs from the rear tail lights you have one 2 bulb system shorting out, so one at a time remove the bulbs then replace the fuse and see which one is bad or just buy new bulbs and replace, also could be front running light blinker light. But sounds like brake light to ground threw bulb.

Right brake light out; tail light works fine


most rear tail lights and turn/stop lights are the same dual filiment bulb. it is possible for your tail light to work and your brake light not to and still have a bad bulb. I would check the bulb first, your brake light works on the left yes? this would mean that the fuse is fine

Do you own a test light? Check for power at wires behind socket? Clean socket good , check contact spots for bulb & clean any rusty side of the socket with emery cloth, or sandpaper, for good contact also.
