All th tail lights are the same type. However, the push-in socket that they attach to ,if there is not a real good connection, it gets too hot and melts the bulb base and the light socket. Remove the tail light assembly with a phillips driver. 1 screw and the assembly is removed by pulling it straight back while pressing the areas where there are molded plastic clips. pull the bulb straight out and examine the area where the wires are., Both the bulb and the socket. if they appear to be melted to the plastic, they need replaced, or can be temporary made to work by using a pair of needle-nose-pliers, or tweesers to position the wire in the proper place to make contact, untill a replacement is available. Note the bulb type when you remove it, and replace with the same type...OK The bulb isn't burned out, is it??...Look at the elements in the bulb. If one is broken, the little wire element will be separated inside the bulb. It needs to be replaced Thank you...OK

My left side tail light doesn't work after changing the lamp. Jeep 2007 - Commander


it worked before the change out?
there are 3 things that are first. on advance electronics, cars. like this. 2007 is 1st year, of wild complexity.
  1. check fuses first. MIP fuse #8,9,10 (8 is left) check that?
  2. check action of park relay
  3. check for trailer wiring hacks (do you have factory hitch option?)
  4. and scan the PCM , do you see any park fail DTCs'
DTCs are system errors.
that is first.
next if not solved, we look in the FSM for that chapter, and the schematics, to see how its is structured. (varies by year, car)

FSM JEEP XK 2007 (book)
factory service manual.

left side rear tail (park) (tail is old name , car has many park lamps now , not just 1 or 2 tails like in the old days.
so it park and the relay of same name.
there are front parking lights too... do those all work>?

my guess, is you didnt check fuses first.
am i right?
fuse 8 is blown?
but that takes out front left park
and left side marker (park ) lamps too.
so did you look at all left park lights first>?

i bet not, if im wrong then you do have wiring errors.
or the new lamp from china is shorted inside, (common)
try one more lamp , like from GE or Philips.

I have a Mercedes E420 1997. I am having tail light issues, all the lights work turn sig., brake, back up, but no tail lights. I have changed out both rear tail lights, bulbs, and checked all of the fuses....


Check for power with a test light(not a dvom) at the tail lamp assembly. Test right at the spot where the bulb socket sits. If you have power then i would check the connection tab on the bulb socket itself for pits or corroded tabs. If you do not have power present at test point then double check the fuse chart and see if it says 'electronic' instead of having a fuse amp rating for the tail lamps. If it says electronic for any of the light circuits then it means their is no external fuse that can be replaced and the problem is most likely internal of the headlight switch. Since the headlight switch is actually a power source for the lights. I would start there at this point. Let me know what you find and if you need anything else just let me know

Tail break lights don't work. Window break light does work however. Bulbs have been replaced.


Check the brake light fuse. The high mounted brake light (third brake light) is on a different circuit than the brake lights. Hope this helps.

Rear tail / brake lights


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Almost always, your described concern indicates a loose ground particularly on the driver side. What is required is to check the connectors leading to the driver rear side and/or a ground wire. Often, the problem would be the ground terminal is loose or corroded leading to the body of the vehicle. A temporary workaround is to determine which is the ground in the bulb socket (always the body) and wire a jumper wire to any exposed metal part of the rear end.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Rear tail / brake lights


I had the same problem. Check the fuse to the brake light switch (I'm pretty sure that's what it's called). Chances are, that's blown and causing the lack of taillights. As for the single light going out, me and my dad just fiddled with the electrical contacts on the bulb housing until we got it to work. Basically just bent them up a little bit so we were sure that when the bulb was installed, it definitly made contact with the metal tabs. Sorry I can't be more specific.

No dash lights and no tail lights


Check for faulty wires at the fuse block, had one fall off from the block itself from the rear, or it could be a wire break somewhere along the way.

Stop Lights and Blinkers are independant fuse.

Tail lights are on there own fuse and could be a wire break in the rear or removing the bulb and using a metre check for signal at bulb socket where trouble is, Check for disolored connections, Green in color or simular, could be a bad connection which in turn is not letting the curent to other side, Causing a short and loss of power to all remaining lights in curcuit.
