Yes, LED light bulbs have ten times the life hours of incandescent bulbs and use a fraction of the energy.

SOURCE: Left rear Tail lamp not working (bulb and fuse is fine)

Check to see if the yellow wire is broken at the connection right below the lights. I just had to repair broken wires on both sides where they had broken off at the connections

If the break lights in my 1986 c corvette works but the tail lights do not, what could be the cause


Blown fuse ,bad headlight switch,or wiring issue.

No tail lights


I have found that it could be a blown bulb, but usually if you remove the tail light bulb and look inside it with the lights off and engine off you would see rust/corrosion inside the part that the bulb goes into. I had to use a very small file and flat knife to scrape the rust off so the bulb made a better connection. I also spent a couple bucks to replace the bulbs and I have not had a problem in the last 2 yrs.

Break lights and blinkers not working


If you put the tester on the outlets and it lights up properly but the bulbs dont, you have already concluded that the wiring isn't the problem. unless of course the wires are corroded and simply putting the bulb in shorts it out. Have you tested the bulbs?

96 contour. left tail light, 1 and 2nd break light are out.


Everything works, more or less, so you know that the switches and fuses are good. That means that you've got either bulb problems or power/ground problems. First, try swapping the bulbs around to see if the "bad" lights will work with the known "good" bulbs in them. If so, you just need to replace some bulbs. If not, check the sockets inside and out for corrosion, clean them (wire brush, steel wool, sandpaper, etc.) if necessary, and use a voltmeter or automotive tester to make sure that you have power and ground to each socket. The fast flash on the turn signal is just an indicator that a bulb is out.

2000 Saturn sl2 tail lights


If the 2000 Saturn SL2 is the same as the '99 SL2, then your tail lights bulb is the same bulb as your break light bulb. Now they are dual bulbs, just like your head lights. So just the same way that your brights can work, but your headlight lamp be out, or vice versa, is the same with your break lights. So replace both bulbs and you should be good to go. I just had to replace both mine, one was a tail light out, and the other's break light was out, either way, same bulb. Also, check your manual for the light, or take the light out when you go in to get new ones. I found that for some reason there is some confusion on the bulb in this make in model.

Tail lights dont work


Replace the bulbs.
The bulbs will have two seperate elements in it which is why the brake light works.

Take the bulbs out and you will see the seperate elements.
