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,

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.

If the break lights in my 1986 c corvette works but the tail lights do not, what could be the cause


Blown fuse ,bad headlight switch,or wiring issue.
the tail lights have there own fuse and are powered through headlight switch. Do the front running lights come on? If none of them work, switch could be bad if front work and rears dont, check bulbs and power to them when lights are on

Location of brake light switch fault on 2002 discovery freelander


The brake light switch is on top of brake pedal arm. Check your bulbs, and connections to the rear lights (unplug harnesses and clean the connectors as well as bulb(s) etc... )

Also, it (shouldn't) be the brake light switch if you can shift out of park. Good luck.

Where is the tail light relay located on a 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis GS? My tail lights and parking lights do not work and I have checked all my fuses.


if it was just your brake lights i would say its the brake switch. if you have checked all light fuses next step would be checking the bulbs. if bulbs are good check continuity with a test light.

Brake light dodge neon 2002


Check the brake fuse in your dash's fusebox. Since the turns work, you know the bulbs are good, unless your Neon has separate brake lights. If the fuse is good, bulbs are good, then check for power at the brake light switch on the upper portion of the brake pedal. Should have 12 volts there all the time. Use a testlight or voltmeter to check. Good luck.
