    Lighting problems started with R rear direction signal light stopped working. Changed socket assembly, BUT did not fix problem. R front blinker started running fast. Then L rear tail signal stopped working and front L signal started running faster. After a while Then Rear running lights stopped working. Then after a while the Rear brake lights stopped working. Than emergency lights quit working. ALL front lights work.

    I have the same problem with my 99 suburban. The right rear blinker/brake like stopped working. the bulbs are OK. I'm thinking it is a ground problem. I have the generic GM wiring diagram from my Hayes book and I will try to track the problem down.

    I'm having same problem.Rear right blinker went out.I replaced bulb.Went out again in a month.Replaced tail light circuit board and bulb. Turn signal went out again in a few months and again in another few months.I've just been replacing the bulb which seem to last several months at a time.Cheaper than spending money on someone to figure it out.I have no other electrical problems.If someone can tell me what I need to do to fix it i'd appreciate it

Possible answer:

Check wiring. Seems My Dog went on a destructive spree.
Under drivers side ,I laid on the ground and there is a well open area under chassis,near engine and front left wheel ( under driver Floorboard ). The wiring harness just inside chassis frame. I found the harness chewed,with brown wiring chewed completely in half. Other wires were mauled, but still intact reasonably. Good Luck on The Hunt.

Is there an inline fuse for the tail lights on 1996 Ranger? There is no fuse in the box.


Tail lights - park / brake - turn ? The park lamps get B+ voltage from the head lamp switch , unless your vehicle has anti- theft system .Then get B+ voltage from parks lamps relay .

I'm needing the wiring diagram for my 2007 Chevrolet Impala LT 3.5 tail lights.


Go to http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html free wiring diagrams ! You having tail light problems ? Do you know how they work ?

They are turned on by the BCM !
Park, Tail, Marker and License Lamps
The park, tail, license, and marker lamps are turned ON when the headlamp switch is placed in either the HEAD or PARK lamp positions, or anytime the automatic light control (ALC) turns the headlamps ON. When the headlamp switch is placed in the park lamp or headlamp positions, ground from G202 is applied through the signal circuit to the BCM indicating the park lamp request. In response to this signal, the BCM applies ground through the park lamp relay control circuit energizing the PARK LP PCB Relay. With the relay energized, battery voltage is applied through the switch side of the relay, both park lamp fuses, and the supply voltage circuits illuminating the park, tail marker, and license lamps. Ground for the left front park and marker lamps is provided at G101 and the right front park and marker lamps at G100. Ground for all rear lamps is provided at G302.
Turn Signal Lamps
The LT T/SIG and RT T/SIG fuses located in the underhood fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to the body control module (BCM) for turn signal and hazard lamp operation. When the turn signal switch is place in either the LEFT or RIGHT position, ground from G202 is applied through the turn signal switch signal circuit to the BCM indicating the turn signal request. In response to this signal, the BCM applies a pulsating voltage to the front and rear turn signal lamps supply voltage circuits cycling the lamps ON and OFF. The BCM also sends a message via GMLAN to the instrument panel cluster (IPC) to cycle the turn signal indicator ON and OFF depending on the position of the turn signal switch.
Ground for the turn signal lamps is supplied as follows:
?€¢
G101 provides ground for the left front turn signal lamp


?€¢
G100 provides ground for the right front turn signal lamp


?€¢
G302 provides ground for the left and right rear turn signal lamps

2000. Where is fuse for tail lights?


Do your headlamps work ?
Park/Marker/License/Tail Lamps
Voltage is applied to the turn/headlamp switch at all times. When the turn/headlamp switch is in the PARK or the HEAD position, voltage is applied to the following components:
?€¢
The park lamps


?€¢
The marker lamps


?€¢
The tail lamps


?€¢
The license lamp

The front marker lamps are grounded through the turn filament of the respective front park/turn lamp. The front marker lamps light as a result.
The automatic lamp control function turns on the park lamps and the headlamps. This action occurs when the ambient light sensor determines that the exterior lamps should be turned ON based on the amount of available light. When the BCM grounds the park lamp relay, voltage is supplied directly to the park lamps, bypassing the turn/headlamp switch assembly. When this action occurs, the following conditions exist:
?€¢
The automatic lamp control relay is grounded.


?€¢
The headlamps turn ON. Refer to Headlights/Daytime Running Lights (DRL) Circuit Description .

The lamps turn OFF when the BCM does not ground the park lamp relay or the automatic lamp control relay. This action is caused by the following conditions:
?€¢
The available light reaches a predetermined level.


?€¢
The ignition switch is turned to the OFF position

I need diagrams for the fuse boxes in the dash and engine compartment so I can find the fuse/relay I need to replace. My dash lights, tail lights and windsheild wipers are out.


Hi
There are a couple of wiring diagram and manual available on the net. The relay you are talking about is the park lamp relay which supplies power to the tail lamps, license plate lights and both front and rear park lamps. If the park and plate lights are working the light switch, relay and supply power are good. You need to verify for a broken brown wire to the tail lamps (assuming the sockets, lamps and grounds on both tail lights are good) .If none of the lamps are working then the 15A fuse number 3, the light switch or the park lamp relay could be bad (note different contact in the main light switch work the other lights)

You can find a wiring diagram and component location at
www.autozone.com and http://www.pdfgeni.com/book/1998-ford-ranger-wiring-diagram-pdf.html


Let us know if you want something more else accept the solution.

Tail light mounted of '89 Accord fails to work


Have not got a diagram, but-
Measure the voltage at the tail lamp :-
if no voltage is present, check the parklight feed circuit for blown fuse/faulty relay or other open circuit connection;
if +12v is present, check for missing earth connection at the lamp socket.
