Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a 95 GMC suburban and I have no tail lights at all. When my head lights are off the front and rear turn signals work( unless you hit the brake then they work but flash fast). When the headlights are on the rear turn signal don't work(unless you hit the brake then they work but once again they flash fast). Also when they head lights are on there is no brake lights at all except the little strip on the top. Headlights on there is no tail lights at all. When i turn on the hazards the lights in the back work and flash but not very brightly like they should. I just replaced the brake switch just the other day and yesterday i replaced the turn signal/multifunction swith that runs through the column. Please help!!!
I think you have a bad ground at the back on both rear lights or their earth out on the same connection but these american cars use a funny system where the stop lights are the indicators and not a seperate yellow light like europeon motors ,Now these brake light switches also allow the indicators to work by shutting off the feed to the stop light so it flashes with indicators ,Why american cars use this system i dont know as its so complicated for the stop light switch function but try the ground or earth wire on the back lights and if no joy then ask a american mechanic with experiance of this sort of circuitry as when i get american cars for import i have to fit new back lights and disconnect the brake light switch .

Check the TAILGHT FUSE. GM's unusual way of letting you know there is something wrong. Otherwise how often do you check your tailight operation. Only by another driver telling you, your tailights aren't working, would you know. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a 96 Suburban.
My problem was in the trailer hitch wiring. Someone had spliced the wires and the corrosion finally caused one of the wires to crack. I respliced and soldered the wires. All works fine now.
