Yop may have a very common problem unique to that year car.
I have two definite fixes for you:
Open the trunk. Look at the wiring harness that is hooked onto the driver side arm that holds the trunk lid to the body. Untape the wiring harness from the edge of the trunk lid back towards the driver rear seat. You are most likely going to find a broken wire or two, prob a green with a red tracer. The repeated action of lifting/closing the trunklid seems to break the brake/tail power wires. If the wiring harness is perfect, no breaks, AND you have a rear spoiler, remove the trunk interior trim that faces the driver side 1/4 panel. Hidden behind a brace will be a small box. This is the brake lamp sensor. If it has failed, you may need to replace this box. Either fix should resolve your issue.

Why taillights do not come on, but the brakelights and signal lights work


check the fuses for a burnt fuse. the taillight circuit has its own fuse and wiring. its possible the headlight switch is bad but this doesn`t happen very often.

No brake lights


Check the fuse in the fuse panel under the dash. Check the brakelight bulbs and see if they are good, it is unlikely the bulbs will both blow at the same time, it pays to check them. If the fuse is good, then the brakelight switch is bad under the dash,on the brake pedal. If you haven't done these repairs before, it is very tight getting under the dash to get to the brakelight switch. You may want to take it to a shop and let them do it.
I hope this has been helpful.

Taillights dont work, brake lights work, fuses are ok, 1998 Honda Civic


the rear bulbs have 2 coils in them (1 for brake light and 1 for taillights) You need to replace them with new ones. This will solve the prob. Good luck

Taillights will not work, but turn sig, brakelights work, fuses are all good


Some makes and models have different taillight bulbs and brakelight bulbs. in other words your turn signals and brakelights are on one bulb and the tailights are on another, or they have multiple filaments and one of them could be bad

Fuses will blow out when there is a wire that's grounded out somewhere. Take the brake light sockets with the bulbs in it out of the lens and check for a wire that's broken or maybe corroded. Something is grounding out when you hit the brakes.

No brakelights or taillights.


How did you connect the test light. Clip to frame or clip to one terminal and pointer to other terminal. If you hooked the clip to frame and the pointer to a terminal and it lit, it means that you have power there but not necessarily ground, because your test light provided the ground. What I would do is first of all not use a test light but use a multimeter instead, you can get relatively cheap one (10-30 dollars). The problem is that a test light only indicates that voltage is available not how much voltage is available, a couple of volts will light the bulb in the test light (you want to see battery volts). It's hard to tell the difference between a half lit bulb or a full lit bulb depending on the light from the sun/garage. Use a multimeter and check the clips on both sides of the car. Also check all fuses whether they indicate lights or not. If you put one lead of the multimeter to frame and the other to a terminal and have battery volts the positive side of the circuit is good. Put the other multimeter lead on the other terminal if you don't have battery volts, you have an open ground. When checking volts make sure the brake pedal is depressed. Good luck
