Both brake light bulbs burnt out at same time

How is that possible to have both brake light bulbs burn out at the same time. Obviously I have replaced these lights, but is there another underlying problem I should be looking at?

Underneath the vehicle, on the left side, there is a harness where the tail lights clip together. Also if there is any kind of towing plug it to will be clipped in at the same spot. It is rather typical for these connections to get corroded, or for the wires to get damaged or brittle. I would recommend checking this first.

Have a 2003 Chevrolet silverado, right rear tail light does not burn when lights are on, this light will burn when brake is applied or when turn signal is used. What is the problem and how can it be fixed?


There are 2 filiments in the light bulb. One is for running lights and the other is for brake and turn signal lights. Simply replace the bulb and you should be ok.

Rear tail and brake lights out 97 Jetta


I believe this car has a bulb with two fillaments for side and brake lights, it is unlikely that they are both burnt out at the same time but possible. It is more likely that the bulb holder or a ground connection is rusted or loose. The fuse generally covers all rear lights.

The brake lights dont work and the hatch brake light stays on all of the time


This is just a guess , so please don't give me a bad rating. to me it sounds like the switch on the brake pedal is broken ( stuck on ) so brake lights are on , but have burned up the rear bulbs. Highmount light might be LED so runs cooler and does not burn out. Try new bulbs in the tail lights.

I have a 98 Ford Taurus -- turn signals work, but no brake lights when brake pedal is pushed? Does this sound like a fuse, switch or bulb problem?

Brake lights dissappeared


Try and locate the fuse that controls your brake lights. If you have no service information inside an owners manual, remove each fuse one at a time to check for any burnt out. Do not switch any fuse locations, or replace any fuse with a different amperage rating. example, if you find a 10A fuse that is burnt, replace it with a 10A fuse only. If you cannot find any burned fuses, you should probly replace your brake switch underneat your dash. Your brake pedal will hit the switch, so you shouldn't have any problems finding it. It will be small and black

Brake light on one side doesn't work


Your bulb is burnt out. Brake light bulbs have a double filament. The brake part can burn out, and the tail light part can still be good.
