1 of 3 lights work then fuse, switch and voltage checks OK. problem would be the wiring harness leading to the two other bulbs or their connectors or joints.

did you clean the inside of the bulb sockets for possible corrosion?

hope this helps.

Have you used a multimeter yet to check the sockets to see if they are getting any voltage when you step on the brakes etc...
Once I have more information I can attempt to assist you further.
Thank you,
lee

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, to my knowledge there would be two fuse boxes, one in the engine compartment, the other inside the vehicle. To be more specific, pls confirm that you have a 2002 Saturn L300?

In any case, the often cause of similar concerns such as yours is missing ground. You could verify this by temporarily jumping the body of the bulb socket to any exposed metal part of the car such as a screw/bolt, housing, bracket or anything that would serve as body ground. Turn on the park light and/or somebody step on the brake pedal. Should this be the case, then pls check the connectors, the prongs and terminals as well as the wiring.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

    If the top/third brake lights work, then the fuse and switch are good. That leaves us only with the wiring/connector as the possibility. Do you have access to a voltmeter? If yes, remove the bulbs and measure the voltages (with the parklights on and someone stepping on the brake pedal.

My inside dashboard lights and back break light suddenly stopped working so cant drive it at night. Its a 99 honda prelude. I've tried changing the light bulbs and the fuse but still not working.


If the dash lights are on the same circuit as the park lights. Chances are if no dash lights... no park lights. Unless the dash light dimmer switch is on the low position. Check park light fuse. If no brake lights... which are on a different circuit and you are sure the bulbs are ok check brake light fuse. If fuse ok, unplug brake light switch at brake pedal and cross the terminals with a jumper. If brake lights work, the brake switch is faulty. If still no brake light operation suspect a wiring issue

brake switch on the pedal bad.bad relay. do you have a second fuse box if so check it. look at the wiring see if it is frayed or chafed check the connections.check all the fuses not just the ones labeled brakes.switch the relay with one that you know is good like turn signal and see if the turn signal works then check brakes.use a 12 volt test light check the brake switch and probe the wires. hope this helped if not write back and i'll give you more ideas.

Left rear brake light stopped working but bulb and fuses are OK.


These are Dual Function Bulbs. They control the Parking Lights and the Brake Lights. This Bulb is Burnt out on the Brake Coil inside the Bulb. I have actually seen Bulbs that were Bad But you could not Tell by jast looking at them. It should be fine with a New Bulb. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

No brake lights, fuses keep blowing and wont shift out of park


I would look for a wiring short in the trunk at the taillamp area, or, inspect the sockets for the taillamp bulbs for corrosion. In any case, you have a short circuit in the trunk area, also check the wire that comes from the body & goes up the trunk hinge on the driver side; that wire may be chafed, and it may be shorting out. Hope this helps; please get back to me if you need any further assistance.
