Check for power at the lights. If there is power then it's probably a bad ground. If not then you need to start checking the wiring harness for breaks or loose connection. Good luck, Neil W.

My 2010 Subaru Outback tail lights are not working. What do I need to do?


This is odd.. I take it your front parking lights are working? The reason why I ask is that they are on the same circuit as the rear tail lamps usually. If both front and rears aren't working, check the fuse. If the fuse is good, replace the relay. If only the rears aren't working, check the ground wire for the rear wiring harness to the rear lights. This is still odd as your other lamps usually use the same ground point. Finally, if you aren't the first owner or you recently replaced the bulbs.. did you use the proper bulbs? Some bulbs have two filaments called 21/5 Watters. Some vehicles use special connectors for the bulbs that be inserted in either orientation, but will only work both filaments when inserted properly. Try reversing the lamps inside the connectors, one at a time please between tests.

Did you change the radio recently..if so you tapped into the wrong wire...and if not then I would say you have a bad headlight switch or a broke ground dome where

1997 Subaru Impreza Tail lights work but brake lights don't even though the Hatch brake light is working


Hi,
So, both sides are not working? Check for voltage @ the brake light bulb to see if you're getting power. Also, look in the fuses.

check out the online Subaru forums, too.

Subaru outback wagon tail light not working off


There are several components of your 1997 Subaru Outback that can cause your tail lights to stop functioning correctly. To help pinpoint the cause of the problem, it would be very helpful to also check your front marker lights. If the marker lights are working, then we know that the problem is not the headlamp switch or the tail and illumination relay (located in the fuse and relay box).

The components to check are:

> Fuse #23 (20 Amp) in the Main Fuse Box.
> Fuse #5 (10 Amp) in the Fuse and Relay Box
> Tail And Illumination Relay
> Headlamp Switch

On my 2008 Subaru Outback, my rear tail lights are on as they normally would be, however, when I step on the brake, the brake lights do not come on (for both left and right), but the spoiler brake light...


There are a few items to check: Fuses [ should be listed as stop, or brake light ] there's a reason if blown, Bulbs [ they have an average life span, you may have 2 that happened to burn out at the same time ], Wireing [ may have a cut or broken wire in a harness in the rear or a trailer light harness problem if equiped.]

1999 jeep grand cherokee - brake lights and turn signals working but Right tail light out with all other lights on--HELP??? My 1999 Grand Cherokee has no parking lights in the rear. The brake lights work...


I have taken my car to many shops to solve this problem. Long story short your tail light has a bad circut and entire lamp must be replaced. (Lamp cost approximate $130.00)

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

Tail lights dont work


Replace the bulbs.
The bulbs will have two seperate elements in it which is why the brake light works.

Take the bulbs out and you will see the seperate elements.
