The electric window could either be the fuse,switch, or window regulator motor at fault..Sometimes the window motor electric plug can vibrate loose or become loose from door slamming..Also the switch can become loose as well or contamination if you are lucky..You will have to remove door panel to inspect these components..and fuse panel..The light could be a faulty bulb..Check and replace bulb..before involving the signal indicator switch lever...If bulb is at fault go ahead and change bulbs at both rear sides..Do not try to repair signal switch because of air bag..If you can hold down on the turn signal switch and it works the switch is at fault...
It more likely than not is a blown fuse. Under the hood in the engine compartment is a fuse panel usually next to the battery. Remove the cover and check all the fuses for the lights. It should be a 10A fuse. That was the problem with my Montero Sport. If it's not the fuse, you may have a bad switch, faulty ground or loose wire somewhere. Try to move the tilt wheel up and down and see if the lights come back on. If so, the wire is loose somewhere around there or even possibly broken inside the insulation. If no lights come back on, the switch may be bad or as mentioned before, you may have a faulty ground. I'd suggest hiring a mechanic who's knowledgable in electrical systems. Also companies who install car alarms and electronics may be able to troubleshoot the problem for you. Best of luck to you.
I'm inclined to believe it is the turn signal switch. When you select left or right, the brake light is removed from that side, and the flasher is connected to the bulb instead, making the brake light on that side flash as the indication that you plan to turn. You have lost everything, but the simple answers check out.
If you have lost signals, brake lights and tail lights, then it is more likely that the ground supplied to the bulbs is not working, since the tail lights share noting in common with the brakes lights and turn signals but ground.
If the tail lights work, the fact that the brake lights and rear turn signals share that switch starts to look meaningful — even more so if the front turn signals also don't work. But the front signals and the rear signals use different circuitry in the switch, so it would be something more mechanical in the switch than electrical in that case.
tail lights did not work but any other light did. In the engine compartment fuse box the EXT fuse is not there are instead there is a piece of rubber. If you put in a 10A fuse as described in the owner's manual then the lights run with the switch instead of being always on. Must be something wrong with DRL relay for the rear lights.
I have a 98 Camry and was having problems with tail lights and fuses. I kept blowing a fuse which was making my tail lights not work. I tried paying very close attention to when they would be working and all the sudden not be working. I know it sounded funny, but I told my mechanic that it seemed if I used my trunk, my fuse would blow. Come to find out, the wire was touching the hinges of my trunk. So when I popped my trunk and closed it, it blew my fuse every time.
This is Typical Problem With Chevy, They Have A Grounding Problem ,Look on the FRAMERAIL Drivers side Behind Rear Wheel for A Ground they Some times Loose Contact and Must be Cleaned and A NEW CONNECTOR Added the Ground Surface Must be CLEANED DOWN TO METAL. Try this I Think it will be where your Problem Is. If not The TAIL LIGHT Curciut Board Also Fails.
Well Jennifer, it sounds like you've done all the things that I'd have done. Try for a bad ground next. Do the lights in the dash cluster work? They're wired together with the tail-lights (so that you know if the rears go out). There should be a ground wire somewhere connecting the body to the engine or chassis.Look around the rear of the engine bay. Good Luck.
