Tail lights on 2005 corolla out

None of the tail lights are working. Or the bar in the back window. Could it just be a fuse that I can't locate or is it the relay??  Thanks

    Thanks. We tried the spare fuse but that didn't work. Could that fuse be bad? Going to try all 3 bulbs next. Would seem strange for all to go out at the same time. Know anything about the relay?

Most Likely its the fuse, should be under your hood

    Did you look at the fuses? Cause it could very well be bad. The odds of all three bulbs is rare did it all happen at once? because the fuse will go before the relay goes. to be honest it could be the relay but you would need to take it out and check it which requires an ohmmeter and wires. Check to see if it closes when you energize it. Its hard to explain how to do this with out being there. and the location could be anywhere on your car, Every company puts them anywhere lol

Tail, side and dash board lights not working

Not totally positive but I believe on your Toyota there are two places that fuses are located. You stated that all fuses under the bonnet are fine and I assume that means under the hood. The other place to check for a blown fuse would be under the dash instrument panel usually located directly above where your left knee would be while sitting in the drivers seat. Hope this is of some help. Good. Luck.

2005 Ford F-250 tail lights/running lights relay

First things first, if your headlights and turn/hazard are still working it's probably just a fuse as you expected. If the brake lights work too, definetely a fuse. If none of the back lights work, it's most likely a short in the wiring system, mine happened because of rubbing under the box peeled off the rubber housing. Check the fuses first, pull each "lights" one out and look through it with a small flashlight, you can tell if it's burned out. Replace any that look questionable with new ones. If that doesn't solve the problem, start at the back lights, locate the power cables to them, and do a manual inspection, clean and tape (black elec. tape) any frays or housing tears, or replace the whole wire. 95% chance one of those is your problem.

Where is the fuse box loacted on a 2005 toyota corolla.... my two back license plate blubs blew and I want to replace them but cant find the fuses.

The fuse box should be located by your right leg near the bottom of the dashboard. There should be an access panel that un clips and allows you to access all the fuses for the interior and exterior lighting.

My 1990 toyota corolla tail lights aren't working and I don't know which fuse it is.

Toyota is not consistent.
Check then all.
If any fuse has power on one side, and none on the other, then that fuse is bad.
It could easily be that both bulbs went about the same time. It happens frequently.

Witch of the fuse is the one for inside dash lights .

Its located near you feet but it may be a relay located under in the engine bay.

2005 Corolla LE brake lights not working

to ss1957, i have exactly the same problem as yours. At first i thought the bulbs of both side are okay because the filaments (there's two on each) are intact. It turned out that they're not. The brake lights came back as soon as I replaced the bulbs.
