Problem caused by light assembly L or R grounding out when water seeps thru tail light housing gasket. Change light unit assy to solve problem.

Why aren't my break/tail lights working on my 1995 Mitsubishi mirage? No fuses or bulbs are blown.


Well the brake-turn signal and tail lights are on two different circuits, but share a common ground.
If the ground is good, and the parking and turn signals work in the front, it could be a wiring problem.

Trouble identifying problem


There are 2 lots of fuse boxes on cars, one in the engine bay and one normally by the drivers door or just under near the drivers knee... This is where the fuse will be and it should be marked as illum. or tail... Let me know how you go.

I HAVE A 1995 MITSUBISHI GALANT. I AM HAVING ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS. THE TAIL LIGHT FUSE BLOWS OUT, THE INSTRUMENT PANEL WILL ONLY ILLUMINATE WHEN I PRESS THE BRAKES. WHEN I PRESS THE BRAKES WHILE THE CAR IS...


only thing i can come up with is a fault on the back lights like a bad earth or even the wrong bulb in the wrong socket holder as this vehicle will have europeon type bulbs where the side and stop light are using a 5 watt and a 21 watt bulb and this could be in the wrong way around .Whatever the problem is its on the back lights for sure and i wouldnt be surprissed if the headlights dont come on when the brake pedal is pressed with the ignition on as well ,So check the back lights out and work slowly and methodically to check out every possibility

How do I change the passenger tail light bulb on my 2006 mitsubishi galant?


  • For the tail light you first need to remove the brake light that is part of that assembly.
  • Open the trunk.
  • Inside of the trunk is some matting you need to pull down a bit.
  • You may need to remove a net first.
  • Once you pull the matting/carpet down you will see some plastic wing nuts around the are of the brake/tail light.
  • Remove them.
  • Now wiggle the brake light out
  • Now wiggle the tail light out.
  • Twist the socket to the bulb that is bad out.
  • The bulb just pulls strait out.
  • Revers to complete.


  • Thank you for using FixYa.

Tail light doesnt come on...already tried replacing bulb and swapped fuses still wont come on...brake light and reverse works


Hello. Check the wire connections going to this tail light and the ground connection where the ground wire is bolted to the frame. A weak ground is the most common reason for your problem. Disconnect the ground wire from the frame so you can sand the frame in that spot down to bare metal then reconnect the ground wire.

Also pick up an aerosol can of contact cleaner at the auto parts store and spray the contacts plus remove the bulb and spray the bulb socket. Regards, Joe

ps - please rate my answer. thank you.

I have a 2007 galant the right rear brake light dont work i replaced the bulb and checked the fuses nothing burned out what else can i check? thank you


The taillight harnesses are very very problematic on the 2004-2008 Galants.
Pull your tail light out again, and take the bulb out of the socket and look into the socket. You should notice that the two little contacts are slowly melting into the connector.

The harness is available for about $20 at your local dealer. Most dealers stock them, as they fail regularly.

Have you checked the fuse, the HD lights are not on the same circuit as the tail lights, for safety reasons.
