Driver side brake light not working

I changed out my tail lights. All my lights work except the driver side brake light. The main reason why I bought new ones because the old ones were going bad. On the old set I had the same problem (driver side brake light). I replaced the brake switch under the brake pedal too. I also checks the fuses and everything looks good. I also tested the driver side lights with the passenger lights and they checked out good. I think I have a problem in the wiring...any ideas?

Test the circuit board for power where the socket goes in. If there is power there you might have a bad socket. BMW's are good for that. The socket contacts corrode away and make no contact to the circuit board. I am guessing the new lights came with new sockets right. Look at the connector at the circuit board for corrosion and clan the contacts there too.

2011 Ford Escape driver side tail light not working correctly - lights are on but turn signal flash not working and neither is the brighter brake light


I would guess that you need a new bulb. Many of these tail lights actually have two filaments inside them, one that is used for a dimmer light (running light) and one that is used for a brighter light like (brake light, turn signal). The easiest thing to try (and probably the cheapest) would be to buy a replacement bulb and change it. Most places that sell automotive light bulbs will have a large catalog where you look up the make model and year of the car you need a light for and it will tell you which replacement bulb you will need. Then look in your cars manual to see how you access and replace the bulb.

Reverse tail lights don't work


Find and check the reverse switch that should be by the shifter to make sure it is working. Use a multimeter to make sure the voltage is getting to the hot side of the switch if it doesn't work by hand.

2007 tail light fuse location honda crv


I had this problem with my 2007 Honda CRV -- all the lights worked EXCEPT the tail/running lights and the license plate light. The other tail lights worked -- brake, reverse, indicators, and hazards. Front headlights also worked, but when the headlights went on the back tail lights did not (not to safe for driving at night!!)
The fuse was #15 in the interior fuse box (under the dash driver side) with the label "small exterior lights" ( also check fuse #19 labeled "small lights main"). The cause of my problem, I believe, is a bad or lose wire in my license plate light.

The brake lights do not want to work. i have changed the brake switch under the dash and the bulbs on the tail lights.still nothing. i also, changed fuses.


does the high mounted brake light work? the brake switch has 2 contacts one for the high mount (LT BLUE/BLACK) and one for the tail brake lights. The tail/brake light wire is LIGHT BLUE. the main connector between the brake light switch and the tail lights is C208 which is located behind the rear seat, left side. So if there is power coming out of the brake switch OK and no power at the tail lights, check that connector. Hope this helps.

I have a 2002 Chevy Express van. All of the tail lights work except the driver side. Left signal light and backup light works fine. Problem: The driver side brake light works as long as the running...


The printed circuit board that the bulbs push into needs replacement. Any autoparts store will have it. It just screws into tailight assembly & attaches to wiring harness.

When i press brake pedal driver side brake light quits working but other wise it works fine?


That has a double filament bulb in it. One is for the tail light and the other for the brake and maybe the turn signal. If your turn signal flashes the tail light and not an individual turn signal bulb it will behave the same way. The way it works is that the tail light filament goes off and the brighter brake light filament comes on. The brake light half of the bulb is out. If you change it, change the passenger side too, it will do the same shortly if you leave it in. They tend to go bad in pairs. Good luck.
