    The problem shorted out my dashboard lights also. Everything is working properly now.

SOURCE: tail light doesnt come on...already tried

Hello. Check the wire connections going to this tail light and the ground connection where the ground wire is bolted to the frame. A weak ground is the most common reason for your problem. Disconnect the ground wire from the frame so you can sand the frame in that spot down to bare metal then reconnect the ground wire.

Also pick up an aerosol can of contact cleaner at the auto parts store and spray the contacts plus remove the bulb and spray the bulb socket. Regards, Joe

ps - please rate my answer. thank you.

SOURCE: I dont have brake lights,

If all your brake lights are out, it could be your brake light switch. The switch should be located above the brake pedal arm. Might be as simple as a lose or dirty connection. The switch should have a adjustment too.

SOURCE: Need to solve towbar wiring fault for trailer

This sounds a bit crazy, but you do not have a good solid ground to your trailer brake lights. You may have to run a separate ground wire from the trailer to the car. Pull your trailer close to the front of your car, close to the battery. Use some wire to connect your trailer to the battery. Then touch each contact one at the time until you learn which port turns on which light(s). Using the wires, only one in the ground connector and the other in the brake connector. gain access to one or both sides of the trailer lights, use another wire and touch the base of the bulbs to the metal of the trailer if the light gets brighter you need to run another ground wire. Hope this helps FixYa up.

Tail lights work but not brake lights 93 toyota camry

The brake light side of the bulbs is powered by the brake switch and travels thru the turn signal switch.
If the third brake light works, I would guess the problem is in the turn signal switch.

Headlight switch on makes tail light dim

there must be a short circuit which powers tail lights and brake lights. probably you have a dual filament bulbs which have both brake and tail light together. check for bulb, socket/or bulb housing and harness of that light.

All my lamp indicator lights keep flashing. blickers work. when you step on break the break lights work. but when driving no tail lights

First replace the tail light bulbs. The tail light and brake lights are different filaments in the same bulb. it is very possible for the tail lights to go out while brake lights still work. And somtimes the tail lights can blow out together.
If you change the bulbs and still dont work then look for other problems.

99 neon running tail lights do not work but tail lights work when brakes are

what you are seeing is the bright filament on the bulb working,
the tail light bulbs have two filaments in each bulb,one is dim and one is bright,the bright one is to the brake and turn signals,that way when you step on the brake with the tail lights on the same lens light up brighter to warn drivers behind you..
you need to check the fuses in the car for tail lights first,see if your plate light is on that will tell you the bulbs are just blown

Brake lights will not come on. It is not the bulb. The tail lights work.

The tail lights working would not necessarily mean that the brake light bulbs are good. If they are the type that have a double filament (ie: one filament for the tail light and another filament for the brake light ) the brake light filament could be bad and the tail lights still would work. If they are either single filament type bulbs or double filament type, I would check the bulb, fuses, and contact switch on the brake pedal.

Right brake light out; tail light works fine

most rear tail lights and turn/stop lights are the same dual filiment bulb. it is possible for your tail light to work and your brake light not to and still have a bad bulb. I would check the bulb first, your brake light works on the left yes? this would mean that the fuse is fine
