Get a small electrical test probe (available at any store for around $8) so you can check for power at these wires.
This type of wiring system could be using one wire to provide running lights for both left and right(you would have to run a split wire off this one to the other side) and then the other two other wires would provide Turn signal and brake lights.

My fuse keeps blowinng when i turn on my lights but the headlights ,blake lights and turn signals work but no tail or parking lights


If the fuse blows, you have a dead short to ground somewhere, likely around the tail lights or parking lights. Try this:

Get a box of the correct fuses.
Remove all tail and parking bulbs and put in a new fuse. If the fuse does not blow, try installing each bulb at a time to see which light assembly causes the fuse to blow.
Let's suppose its the RH tail light assembly. Pull it off the car and check for dirt and damaged wiring.

If this is an older vehicle, there may be wiring damage (due to rust) in the harness under the carpets.

Rear lights issue


reverse lights are on a different circuit to the brake/tail/clearance lights. Check fuses for the others.

Fuse for tail lights keeps blowing


You have a serious short circuit in the wiring to the tail lights. Fuses protect the wiring in your vehicle from catching fire.
You need to trace the tail light wiring from the fuse box to the tail lights to locate the fault/short circuit.
A wiring diagram can help as it shows the colour code of the wires to the tail lights.
This problem can be difficult to trace and you most likely need an auto electrician to fix this problem. It could mean installing a new wire to the tail lights as a quicker fix and bypass the fault..

Taillights wont work 1984 GMC sierra


I would start with the fuses,Check under the dash in the fuse box. Make sure all fuses are good. If there is a blown fuse then replace it, If the fuse blows then you may have a short in the wiring to tail lights, also check wire connections at the rear bumper area.
I have seen the connector go bad, test power going into and coming out of connector to tail lights. if there is a trailer hitch on this truck then check where the hitch wiring was connected , check for bad connections.
If the front park lights work then it may not be the light switch but rather a bad wire.Here is a wiring diagram to help you.
have a good day and i hope this is helpful. If there is something else i can help with please let me know.3_6_2012_5_22_32_pm.gif

Hi, the fuel pump wires are not in the tail fin. Check to see if the pet might have got under the car and chewed. Your diagram is below. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using Fixya.

Tail lights don't work, but brake, flash and hazzard work.


generally when the fuse is ok and the bulb is ok the problem is corrosion of the ground wire and connection to the frame, or corrosion in the bulb sockets. for starters go to any auto parts store and get an aerosol can of contact cleaner especially for auto bulbs and connections.
