2 brake lights, turn signals not working 1999 plym. grand voyager
Recently, my van got hit in front left and destroyed the headlight assy. I replaced head light assy but now the two rear brake lights don't work nor do the turn signals. The brake light in the rear door does work. I checked all the fuses in the panel under the hood and they are all ok. Headlights work ok. What happened to the brake lights and turn signals? What can I check next?

You may have 2 problems. First check the wire connector at the rear left underside of vehicle to see if you have voltage at brake wire. If you do, you may have a ground problem in the light assy. Next identify the wire that goes into the N/S switch to see if voltage is going into and out of the switch. If you have power in and out then you may have a bad wire to the b/u lights or a ground problem at the light assy
If you have any extra fuses, try replacing the ones for the head lights and tail lights. Make sure the fuses you replace are the same color as the ones you replace them with, that way the voltages are the same. Another issue is that a flasher could be going out.
Your earth is bonding properly. Make sure you have a good bond that is fixed either to your chassis, with all rust, sealent and other cotings are removed frois should dolve your problem.m the fixing. Th
Did the new lens come with new sockets? If not damage may have occured there that you cant see. only other possibilty is wiring damage in the rear that may be hard to see. The condition you describe is simple "backfeeding" if you look hard enough youll either find bad sockets or damaged wires close to the lens that took the hit. Hope this helped. Thanks
There is one 10mm Bolt on the top of the light and three 10mm nuts on the back of the light. You will need to use a 10mm wrench to remove the nuts because they are in a tight place.
After the 1 bold and 3 nuts are removed, the entire headlight assemble will pull straight out. You don't need to take the headlight bulb out because there should be enough wire to pull out the assembly far enough to get to the turn signal bulb. This will allow you to change the turn signal bulb which should be a 4157 amber bulb.
When putting the headlight assemble back in the van, there is a plastic pin in headlight assembly that goes into a hole in the front fender for alightment. Don't force the light. Take your time and the headlight assembly will go back in the van smoothly.
the tail light lenses are most likley the problem. the sockets will also have to be replaced . try moving the backup light sockets to the brake light sockets . you should be able to get one working. this is for test purpos. at least you will know if it is the problem. good luck
