    I had the same problem, I replaced the fuse twice and the tail light would work but the dash board would go out, then if you turned the dimmer switch to get the dash board back on the tail light would fuse again. Any ideas?

  • Annie Oct 17, 2013

    I have the same problem, have changed the fuse tail lights then work but dashboard goes off. So when you turn the dimmer down on the dashboard and back up the lights on the dash now work but the tail lights have just blown again. Help?

Hey i just fixed mine with the same exact problem, look, all you have to do is open your 3rd fuse box which is next to your washing fluid on the passenger´s side under the hood, for that you need to remove the cover wich is pretty easy (5 staples all you need is a thin flat screw driver to lift the center of the staple and then the whole staple) then you take off the cover and then you open the fuse cover, you are looking for the TAILLIGHT fuse wich is the first on the upper row from right to left if you are standing on the passenger side looking towards the drivers side (you can also look for that fuse in the fuse box cover diagram) remembre is a 15A fuse, replace it, jaja and thats how you save some dollars. saludos desde guadalajara mexico.

All light work except tail light and dash lights. turn works, brake works, head ok. All are on the turn signal switch could that be the problem


First check fuse that is for tail lights, Check Owners Manuel under fuses, sometimes fuses control more than one circuit . Is there a dimmer switch for the dash light? Again check owners Manuel. Check the tail light bulbs themselves, make sure there is no corrosion at the bottom of the bulb and contact.

My tail lights won't turn on in my 98 Acura integra all my other lights work my brake lights and my lights I front work but my rear lights won't work I keep getting pulled over what could it be


Hi Justin.

My first thought on this would be to check your fuses. The tail lights, brake lights, turn signals, and all four front headlamp filaments (left and right, low and hi beam) have their own fuse. This makes sure you don't lose all your lights if one bulb shorts. Take a look in your owners manual (or just pop the fuse panel, they're usually labeled on the back of the panel or lid) and look for a fuse marked something like 'tail light'. More likely than not, that's the problem.

After that, the next thing to look at would be the bulbs themselves. Unlikely you'd burn both out at once, but if they lights are dead you'll get no light.

Hope this helps!

Both my tail lights are not working on my 2008 toyota Sienna. Brake lights work fine, just the running lights are out.


Your tail light/license plate light fuse is blown. Replace that fuse and you will have your running lights once again.

2006 chevy impala rear tail light...


there is a connector that plugs into the light that should be looked at. is there any water leaks anywhere. there were problems with water leaks on some malibu models around the tail lights. pell open the inside covers and get to the tail light to inspect for this. also check those bulbs just in case they did go bad. any condensation in the light? not sure if the Impala has a single fuse for both tail light or one for each but you should check fuse box under dash and under the hood. good luck

I HAVE BLINKERS AND BRAKE LIGHTS NO RUNNING LIGHTS THOUGH I TRIED TO FIND A PARK LAMP FUSE BUT UNABLE TO WHAT DO YOU THINK?


The fuse should be labeled Tail Lps in the middle of the fuse block. It should be a 20 amp fuse. If it is blown, turn on the tail lights after you replace it and see if it blows again. If it does then you have a short that needs to be fixed. Usually what happens is that the wire is rubbing somewhere and has chaffed through. Alittle black tape will solve that problem. This would also apply if you get a few days of driving before it blows again. To find the problem remove the light sockets and drop them down under the truck and check them over looking for cracks or bare spots in the insulation. Tape any suspicious spots.
If the fuse is good replace the bulbs. If that doesn't work check out the ground wire.Take it off,clean it up and reattach it, making sure the chassis is bare shiny metal. It could also be the sockets themselves,or the plug-in. The plug-in is on the driver's side near the bumper.

1991 toyota corolla tail lights


The tail lights in my sister's '90s Subaru had a similar problem, and nobody could diagnose it, so she just kept a bunch of fuses in the car. (When she replaced a fuse, it would be a while before it blew again -- days, weeks or even months).
In your case, there's a continuous short circuit somewhere. I'd start with the tail lights themselves -- remove the bulb on one side, replace the fuse, then test. If the other bulb lights and the fuse didn't blow, you know the problem is in the wiring to the bulb you removed. If the fuse DID blow, replace the bulb, remove the bulb from the other light, replace the fuse and test again. Examine the wires carefully looking for nicks or bare insulation.
If the fuse fails whichever bulb is installed (or even if no bulbs!), then the short circuit is probably at the fuse box connectors for those wires, or inside the fuse box itself.
I assume you're talking about the tail lights that turn on and off with the headlights. If you're talking about the brake lights, the test procedure is the same, but don't forget about the high-mounted center brake light, if your car has one.

2005 Corolla LE brake lights not working


to ss1957, i have exactly the same problem as yours. At first i thought the bulbs of both side are okay because the filaments (there's two on each) are intact. It turned out that they're not. The brake lights came back as soon as I replaced the bulbs.

Only headlights work, 91 4dr EX


ok supaxang, could this solution be as simple as replace the 2 rear bulbs? The brake light and tail light (parking light) are the same bulb, 2 filaments, one for brakes, one for tail lights. If the the tail light filament burns out, the brake light will continue to work ok. It is quite possible that both tail lights burned out, and the brake light filaments are good and still working. Replace w/ bulb #2057. Let me know if this fixes it, if not, I'll keep working on it.
