FUSE PROBLEM? (NO REAR LIGHTS)

I was driving and was pulled over twice -- my rear tail lights are all out but my brakes lights work so when I'm driving at night it looks like my lights aren't on. My head lights work and some on the interior lights are out (on the temp control, radio, etc...) could this be a fuse problem or something major?

    I have the same problem, brake lights work , signal lights work, flashers work, headlights work, just no parking lights, I think maybe when I had the wiring harness modified for towing they were working but after a few years the boat lights didnt work bad ground, that it might have blown the fuse

    Same problem fuse keep blowing so no tail lights. I took it to the dealer three times before he said it was a pinch wire behind the bumper. A week late it blew again and I switched to a 10 amp fuse and it has lasted a year with no trouble.

First thing to do is check the fuses. Don't just look at them, pull them out and test them with a fuse tester available at most auto parts stores (often with several spare fuses, very handy) or you can use a volt/ohm meter which is also available at most auto parts stores. Fuses are the most likely culprit and until they are known to be good, I wouldn't worry about a bigger problem.

On the fuse chart, what is the abbreviation for the brake light fuse

blinkers and stop lights are on the same circuit-tail lamps are on another circuit-i'm going to start from zero so please be patient-do the front park lamps come on with the headlamps-have you checked the fuses-have you checked at the rear lamps with a volt meter-take the rear bulb out and try in front if fronts working-as far as the ground at the rear there should be a screw in the frame where the ground should be and there should be a ground wire coming out of the harness in the area where the harness from the front plugs into the turn signal harnesses-otherwise-you can driill a small hole in the frame and one in the truck bed underneath and run a wire between them-the bed is not grounded by being bolted onto the truck-cheers Denny

I would replace the fuse... and then have someone stand to the rear of the vehicle and watch the lights come on as I applied the brake... if the fuse blows again... note which tail light did NOT come on durring this test and replace the bulb.. it is grounding to itself and causing the short.

My 2003 Pontiac Vibe tail lights do not work. The brake lights work. I checked the tail fuse. Turn signals work also. Why no tail lights?


Your turn signal lights and brake lights are the same lights . Question : do the front parking lights work ? The front and rear running lights or parking lights are all on the same circuit and fuse . If the front lights work , and the rear lights don't , make sure the bulbs are good first . If OK , I would suspect the problem is either a bad ground in the rear taillight wiring harness or a bad connection in the rear taillight connector Itself .
