    There is no power at the fuses and as of last night my brake lights don't work.

  • dan_bgn1 Jan 03, 2009

    checked all fuses, I'm honestly starting think that it could be the block at the driver side kick panel that is starting to go. I've checked the fuses the relays, checked for current, i don't get anything past that fuses block. any other ideas?

  • dan_bgn1 Jan 03, 2009

    So ihave checked the engine bay fuses and relays. and i get power from there once i get to the panel i don't. the light control switch is working cause the head lights are, but i checked for power anyway and it seems that the ciruit is dead. I've been looking at the wireing schimatics and can't seem to find where the taillights, brake lights and cluster lights join besides the fuse panel. I do get lights everywhere else but the places mentioned above.

  • dan_bgn1 Jan 03, 2009

    I've swaped the taillight relay with the defoger relay as they are the same and nothing has changed. but how could i test the switch. and would it be the switch since the headlights still function?



    | T | EL | H |

    Off | | |

    Taillights |--o----|----o |

    Headlights |---o---|----o----|----o |



    Even with the lights switch on Headlights the first 2 contacts arn't lighting up.

    would it still be the switch?

  • dan_bgn1 Jan 03, 2009

    looking at the book, page 12-6, junction block No.1, Fuses 3, 8, 9. i dont have the cover and still trying to find what fuse is what. All tree are 15s. My scanner is giving me a hard time so posting the diagram will come at a latter time. Sorry

  • dan_bgn1 Jan 03, 2009

    if you have the actual schematics it would be so much better than what i'm using rite now... the writing's so small i need a magnafying glass.

The only things it can be is the electrics have water in, a fuse, a blown bulb, or damaged electrics somewhere along the way. sounds like you have probably got broken wires in the boot. this is quite common, pull back the rubber cover (normally by the hinges) & check the wiring.

    OK up under the dash on the drivers side like right by the steering column is a round red relay it is the bulb failure relay. 
    You can open it up and check the solder joints. They are known as well to cause problems. 





    or Checked the module. Wiring intact and nothing burnt on circuit board. Also, replaced all bulbs in rear of automobile with same type. Still have the problem. Has to be the break light switch which is hell to get to. I'll try to figure that out when I'm home in my airconditioned garage

    no need to clean it,, because the important is the wiring. make sure there is no leak and sparks on it, it can cause short circuit

Chack the earth points at the rear of the vehicle. Often a bad earth is the cause of both lights out. A meter would help diagnosis to see if there is power there.

    Also worth checking the footswitch contacts and switch operation, as it may be a faulty brake light switch.

  • Richard Perkins
    Richard Perkins Jan 03, 2009

    If you have checked the above, then the only solution is a break in a connection between the engine bay fusebox and the kick panel box.



    Start by removing the kick panel assembly to check for a supply.

    If the lead is dead - there must be a break in the loom.

    You will need to locate the correct wire from the engine bay fusebox, and run a wire along the loom. Don't try to unwrap the loom - just tape the new wire alongside to the correct side of the fuse.

The taillights are controlled as follows, in order:

Battery -->
100 amp "ALT" fuse -->
Taillight relay -->
15 amp "TAIL" fuse

The headlamp switch activates the taillamp relay, and provides a ground to let the taillamp relay energize. If the 100 amp ALT fuse is not blown, you either have a bad headlamp switch or a bad taillight realy.

Check the fuses in the cockpit also under the hood. wireing maybe cut but that is very unlikely.

Check the bulb of the light itself. Also the connector of the bulb. Try to remove and clean it.

My 2006 grand vitara tail lights are out I checked the fuses and there good I did notice that my license plate light went out first and than my tail lights could that possibly be the problem?


USA car, non export is my answer and no trailer mods.
Not RENEGADE
no Canada DRL options, right?
are the FRONT PARKS OUT TOO????? my shoe drops.!

so putting in 1 new bulb not fix 1? easy huh>?
did you scan the PCM for errors, DTC errors>
this year has digital controls for that.
the tail lights are really parking lights and are on all 4 corners not just tail. so are they all dead.? and the cab illumination in cluster
in PARK dead?

the BCM puter, closes the park relay on your command(digital)
this feeds 2 fuses rear, 7 an 9 (for both ends of car !!!)
9right
7 left rear and license.
so if 7 and 9 are good then the relay is not closing or bad.?

so in a shop we check fuse 7 and 9 , live, with voltmeter
12vdc both sides, parks ON,
if not 12v the relay is bad or not ON.
so we scan to PCM to see if the BCM sees errors
like "lost park output"
or see CANbus comm errors.
causing the loss of the park command to BCM

BCM means body puter.

not complex but BCM most close the relay !!!
12volts across that coil, or there will be no parks.

25453770-z53v0bh0zacy3ra2sk1gfmgn-2-0.jpg BTW the word tail only works on 1920 fords, had only 1 tail light
the parking light run about 20 lamps all over car. and in front of car.
the front lamp marked tail would be ODD.
but I know what you mean.

2003 ford crown victoria with working brake lights but no parking or rear lights


Duplicate the issue ? You mean the lights are working now ?
The turn signals and brake light circuit is one and the same. The parking lights are on a different circuit. The parking lights get power from the headlight switch and don't travel thru the turn signal switch.
So have you checked the park fuse for power ?
The location of the fuse should be in your owners manual.

I have a 01 GMC Sonoma. One night noticed i had no tail lights. But my brake lights work. I have blinkers and hazards. I have checked all the fuses and the blubs. I also have power back to the sockets.


Well, if you have power on the tail light circuit you should have lights. The tail light circuit is different from brake and turn signal, and they both use the same ground.
Are you sure you have power on the tail light circuit to the bulbs ? And are the parking lights out for the front too ?

just look for the blackened/burned pin on the rear light plastic connector and sand it down to re-establish a good electrical connection and save yourself $800 big ones on replacing the multiswitch.

All lights are supposed to turn off when a subaru key is off right? No! There is a switch on top of the steering wheel column that will turn on lights for warning when parked. You somehow have hit that switch.
