You also have a tail light relay that is sometimes under the hood that may not be relaying the power or controls to the bulb. If you're under warranty though, I would take it to a dealer if not a would call around to an auto parts place and see what they have to say.

Tail lights not working

ck fuse for rear taillights tis under the dash lower left of steering wheel. or if you still have the manual look in there under fuses.
also look for a bad ground but i doubt that.. if it's both rear out.
fast flashing well here's a chart with all sorts of info.
Problem What To Do Turn signals light, but do not flash Replace the flasher No turn signals light on either side Check the fuse. Replace if defective.
Check the flasher by substitution.
Check for open circuit, short circuit or poor ground. Both turn signals on one side don't work Check for bad bulbs.
Check for bad ground In both housings. One turn signal light on one side doesn't work Check and/or replace bulb.
Check for corrosion in socket. Clean contacts.
Check for poor ground at socket. Turn signal flashes too fast or too slow Check any bulb on the side flashing too fast. A heavy-duty bulb is probably installed In place of a regular bulb
Check the bulb flashing too slow. A standard bulb was probably installed in place of a heavy-duty bulb
Check for loose connections or corrosion at the bulb socket Indicator lights don't work in either direction Check If the turn signals are working
Check the dash indicator lights
Check the flasher by substitution One Indicator light doesn't light On systems with 1 dash indicator:
- See if the lights work on the same side. Often the filaments have been reversed In systems combining stoplights with taillights and turn signals
- Check the flasher by substitution On systems with 2 Indicators:
- Check the bulbs on the same side
- Check the indicator light bulb
- Check the flasher by substitution
hope this helps. may want to print for future reference. :)
hope this helps.

No tail lights

Hi, without knowing any further degtails of the failure, I will suggest the following, First, the most common cause of a cars taillights failing to come on is a failed fuse. Take note that a fuse can go bad on its own or it can be blown by a short circuit or an overload. In either case, the cause would have to be located and repaired.

In your 1988 Acura Legend, the fuse is located inside the passenger compartment and on the fuse panel. The panel is located behind either the driver side or passenger side kickpanel.

If the fuse is bad, replace it. If this solves the problem and the replacement fuse holds, then you're all set.

If the fuse for the taillights is good, you must trace the wiring from the fuse block to the headlamp switch located on the steering coluum. If you have current up to that point, you need to track the current from the switch through the wiring and back to the taillights themselves. If you loose current somewhere enroute , then check for broken wiring or a loose or corroded connector.

If you track current all the way to the actual taillight socket, then check the relationship between the socket and the bulbs themselves.
Is the wiring pulled loose from the socket or not connected well? Use a 12 volt test lamp to check for current at the connections inside the sockets and of course insure the bulbs are the correct type and are in good working order.

Now during you do not have any taillights, I suspect either a bad light switch or bad tailight fuse. Good Luck.

I need the proper fuse letter/code for right rear light...2004 jeep cherokee

what type of light? turn signal,taillight,or brake light. if the right rear isn't working but the left rear is on the the brake light or the taillight then the problem isn't the fuse(the share the same fuse). may want to check the bulb socket on the right rear. the contacts get hot and melt the socket and the housing.

How do i change out my rear brake light bulb

Instructions on how to change the bulbs should be inside your owners manual.But here you go;

Lift the tailgate and ensure that it is properly supported.
  • 3 Remove the two screws at the top of the taillight assembly with a Phillips screwdriver. Set both screws together, to the side of your work area.
  • 4 Grasp the taillight assembly horizontally on the left and right. Slowly pull the assembly toward you and away from the truck's frame. Use care while you're pulling the taillight assembly as there will still be wiring connected to it. Once the assembly is away from the frame lay it down on the bumper.
  • 5 Remove the brake light socket from the taillight assembly. Rotate the socket a quarter-turn counter-clockwise to unlock it from the assembly. Withdraw the socket slowly from the hole on the taillight assembly to avoid breaking the brake light bulb.
  • 6 Remove the brake light bulb from its socket by grasping it between three fingers and pulling it straight out of the socket. Put on some latex gloves before you touch the new brake light bulb.
  • 7 Place a small hairline bead of dielectric grease on the metal contacts at the base, on both sides of the brake light bulb. If the grease gets anywhere on the glass portion of the bulb, discard it and start with a fresh bulb. This grease is not absolutely necessary.
  • 8 Insert the brake light bulb back into its socket. Push down on the bulb gently until it seats itself.
  • 9 Now that it's connected carefully insert the bulb into the socket back through the hole on the taillight assembly. Lock the socket back in place by rotating it a quarter-turn clockwise. Do not over rotate the socket. When it locks in place, you stop rotating.
  • 10 Lift the taillight assembly up off the bumper. Position it so that it's ready for re-installation. Push the assembly back into place on the frame. Make sure that all of its wires are tucked back behind it and that no wires get pinched.
  • 11 Reinstall the two mounting screws and tighten them a quarterturn past hand tight. Shut the lift gate door.

    No inst. panel,parking,taillights

    I would check the ground wire for the parking light circuit, especially around and in the light socket where you replaced the bulb.

    Right rear taillight not working

    The right side tail light and plate light get their power
    from from the left side. The first thing to do is change
    the bulb, if this fails, use a 12v test light or meter (the
    light easier in this case) and check the power wire
    from left to right. If you have power from socket to socket, check the ground, if you have good power and ground and a new bulb. Replace the socket.
    Hope this helps. Good luck.

    How to change a tail light bulb in a honda element

    Open the hatch and the tailgate.

    Remove the two mounting screws with a Phillips-head screwdriver, and remove the taillight assembly from the body by pulling it back.

    Determine which of the three bulbs is burned out: brake/taillight, turn signal light or backup light. (I assume you’ve already determined this)

    Remove the socket by turning it one-quarter turn counterclockwise.

    Pull the bulb straight out of its socket.

    Push the new bulb straight into the socket until it bottoms.

    Reinstall the socket into the light assembly by turning it clockwise until it locks.

    Test the lights to make sure the new bulb is working.

    When reinstalling the taillight assembly, first place the two pins in the holes in place. Tighten the two mounting bolts.

    Hope this is helpful to you.
