SOURCE: Left tail light out on 02 S10

I had this same symptom after I pulled a trailer that had light "issues". I tried wiggling the trailer light connector around until the trailer lights begin working. Next think I know they were not working again and now my left tail light was out. I thought it odd that is wasn't both lights out being on the same fuse, but checked wiring etc with no problems found. Mine turned out to be the "left tail light fuse" in the engine compartment fuse box. All of the parking and tail lights as independently fuse, You can tell which one it is by the guide on the fuse box lid. You will be looking for a 10 amp (red) fuse near the center of the fuse box.

SOURCE: wiring schematic for tail lights

Hello.
This sounds like you have a bad ground on your Dakota. Trace the wires back until you see that one of the wires is connected to the body or frame with a small screw or small bolt. Make sure that your have a good clean ground to work with.
Another thing that you can check for is to see if there is another light out somewhere else on the truck. Its like christmas lights, when one bulb goes, it can effect all the others just as well. The only other option is to check your fuses, get the fuse diagram and see what controls the taillights. On my truck I have the wrong fuse in there cause only the taillights to work and not the brake lights. Vehicles are very picky with there fuses. If the correct fuse is in there, make sure that the fuse isnt burnt out. You can check that by seeing if the filament in there looks burn or is broken like it popped. Hope this helps!
-Steve

SOURCE: tail light wiring connectors and wiring diagram

A test light checking each connector would be faster and easier to do. Maybe somebody may have a illustration for you but by far a simple test light is all you need with a helper turning on the different lights as you check them out and writing all your findings down

2012 gmc cargo van l/r tail light inop, no power to socket-tested with test light. is there a separate fuse for lt and rt ?


the tail light uses one of the contacts in the socket so if its not working on the one side then check for lose of power on the tail light wire from the socket back to the wiring loom at the rear of the truck for a bad wire.you can check for a fuse but I believe there is only one fuse for both tail lights.

With a test light check if you have power there with lights on and with lights off, compare left side with right side as far as location in the tail lamp plug for the tail lamp park lights.Trace the harness back to the left side underneath usual corrosion in this area.

How do I connect a trailer hitch power plug to the break lights and tail lights to my 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe.


Under the vehicle by the tail lights locate the lights wiring and look for this colors.
it's only four colors white-ground point,brown-parking lights,yellow-left side turn signal light and green-right side turn signal.
you are going to need a test light to find the correct wire,if you can't locate the wiring unther the vehicle then remove the tail lights and do the connections there.

Trailer lights have two wire out of each fixture left turn goes on left side Right hand turn goes on the other side Tail lights connect how and brakes connect how?


One wire is for the brake/directional filament and the other wire is for the tail light. The fixture should be grounded when it is attached to the bracket. To test which is which (the brown wire is USUALLY the ail light) make sure the fixture is grounded and touch a hot wire to each of the wires coming from the fixture. Watch to see which wire lights up the brighter filament and this is the brake/directional light. The dimmer filament if the tail light. Brakes lights and directional lights are both the same filament. Wen the brakes are applied, both lights are activated. When a direction light is turned on, it simply flashes the brake light filament.
