Thanks for the suggestions. It was not the fuses, wiring, or the bulbs (first thing I looked at). There is a switch behind the brake (like a relay switch) that controls the blinkers and the brake light. Bought the part for $8 plus tax. Switched it out and the brake lights and blinkers work!

More info would enable this to be answered properly. if it is just 1 of the lights it could be unpluged or a bad connection at the plug. sometime a bad ground can cause this but most of the time with that is the light finds a ground thriugh the parking light circuit. if both light s do not work it could be a fuse, bad connector in the wiring harness circuit, or the brake light switch, if the brake light and blinker use the same circuit, the blinker swith in the steering column could be the culprit.

On my 4 x 4, the passenger break lights don't work but the bulbs are good. What do I look for?


When you lock and unlock the doors, this is usually the side light which illuminates, not the brake light.
Remove the brake light bulb, (which also contains the side light filament) and check the filament. It's likely blown, so simply replace it.

I belive this year still uses bulbs, remove the cluster and in the rear you will see the bulbs, note there are a few so remove the one you think it is and shine a light into the hole and you will see if thats the correct bulb by seeing what lights up, good day.

Check the bulbs because they have two lights in one bulb. One for both.

Side marker lights do not work


Hi

No 1 ..Take the lenses off, and check the bulbs, and renew if necessary, check the bulb holder terminals for corrosion, if so spray with WD40 and clean, (with the lights off).

If this does not get them going , you will need a 12 volt test light, and test for live feed to the bulbs lamp holder, with the lights switched on.

Expect you will find corrosion is the problem.

Good Luck

Tail Light doesn't work after replacing bulbs


Hi

Sounds like you have blown a fuse.

Check through the fuses with a test light.
