SOURCE: Tail Light and License Plate lights stopped working

With light switch on, test the wires leading up to the mentioned lights with a test light(cost about 5 or 6 bucks at wal-mart) that way u can eliminate any corrosion questions and get to the source quicker, if test light indicates that the wire is hot, than check connection areas for any wear and tear and possible carbon corrosion. Check lightbulbs, my license plate light stopped working and wire was hot, but wouldnt turn on due to the housing base, got too dryrotted and wouldnt function propery, had to rig it up, but works now.

SOURCE: I have no head lights or tail lights. Turn

Hi as you have no head lights and no tail lights then this rules out bulbs being at fault and as your high beam works this would rule out any fuses being blown, the only thing left that could be causing the problem is the switch that turns the lights on you will find that once you have replaced this all your lights will be working again.

over time the contacts ware and then when you turn the lights on it dont make a good contact and this stops the lights turning on but as you have got high beams then this rules out fuse being blown so the problem will be with the switch itself that you turn the lights on with.

get this replaced and that will solve your problem.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Check the fuses, your tail light and parking light fuse are most likely blown.

SOURCE: Head lights, brake lights, parking

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive battery connector and let it sit for atleast 5mins. or more before reconnecting it. This will reset the system and can get your vehicle back to it's normal operation.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Why when my i turn my left turn signal on, both rear brake lights blink


If the brake lights are blinking and not the parking lights, chances are the problem is a short in the turn signal switch.
If the parking lights are blinking it could be a short in one of the lamp sockets.

You may need to reset the system.

SEQUENCE ACTIVATED BY THE PARKING BRAKE .
1. While engine is running (key in ignition switch), apply the brakes and hold the pedal down.
2. Move gearshift lever to neutral.
3. Apply the parking brake Once Twice
Note: The system can be set - at time of installation - to require that the parking brake be applied once or twice.
If set for two actuations, pause one second between the two.
4. Remove key from ignition (the system keeps the engine running).
5. Exit the vehicle.
6. Within 60 seconds, close all doors.
7. The system will stop the engine and blink the parking brakes once to confirm the sequence is valid (vehicle is
ready for a remote start command).
SEQUENCE ACTIVATED BY THE REMOTE CONTROL
1. While engine is running (key in ignition switch), apply the brakes and hold the pedal down.
2. Move gearshift lever to neutral.
3. Apply parking brake.
4. Send the start command (Model 801 & 2101 - Model 903 ).
5. Remove key from ignition (the system keeps the engine running).
6. Exit the vehicle.
7. Using the remote, send the STOP command. The system will stop the engine and parking lights will blink once
to confirm that the sequence is valid (vehicle is ready for a remote start command).

No brake lights and unable to shift gears


There is an interlock that makes sure the shifter is in park, & keeps it in park, to get the keys out & to start the thing. The interlock system usually has a sensor in the transmission to make sure the vehicle is really in park, & another sensor to make sure the brakes are on, before allowing the shifter to move. If one of these sensors has gone bad, or maybe just got unhooked, that would keep the interlock system from releasing the shifter. Now, you also say there's no brake lights, so bet the brake light switch is gone bad & is causing both of the problems. It's up under the dash board, in the pivot linkage of the brake pedal.

I have a passat 2006 fsi. The Parking breaks wont release after pressing the release button


I had the same problem on my Passat Variant 2007.
Randomly Park Brake won't activate and/or deactivate once button PB pressed.
The cockpit computer tells "Park Brake Error" (or something similar).
If this is your problem, the issue is very well known to VW Service centers.
I had solved it by bringing the car to the Service: The told me that they substituted the ParkBrake Button (a differently made one, even if identical on the exterior) and Reprogramming (Updating) the car computer software.

The parking brake light on the dash of my blazer


Check first the brake fluid level. This is found under the hood on the drivers side. Sometimes when the fluid gets low it will cause the light to blink. If the fluid is fine then have you Back brakes checked. If you have worn brakes this also can cause the light to blink or if you have drum brakes the wheel cylinder could be leaking fluid. You can look under the back of the vehicle on both sides of the insides of the rear tires and if you see alot of wet stuff on the inside of the rear wheels then you have a wheel cylinder that is leaking and could cause you to not have any rear brakes if it blows out. If you can do back brakes you can buy everything cheaper at any Advance or Autozone Store. I always buy new wheel cylinders instead of rebuilding them. Much cheaper. But do both rear wheels. Don't just do one. Hope this helps,

ASL on cannot get into gear, and brake light are out


To get the car out of park you have to put the shifter right in between neutral and drive and as soon as the car starts put it in drive. Keep your foot on the brake obviously. You can go to Reversve once you get the car started and in DRive.
