I assume you are talking about the brake lights not the tail lights, two very different system's. If that is the case you may have a defective brake light switch, it is located under the dash above the brake pedal arm, it may be the problem. See picture below, color may vary, it can be black.

How do i remove the sensor for the rear tailgate?


1) Locate and remove sensor.
The sensor is located under the drivers tail light. Unclip it from the body and then unplug it.

2) Bypass the tail light circuit.
Connect the tail light signal wire (Green) to the tail light wire (Green w/ Red Stripe). I recommend using wire tap in squeeze connectors that way you dont have to cut any wires.

3) Bypass the brake light circuit.
Connect the brakelight signal wire (Green w/ White Stripe) to the brake light wire (Red w/ Blue stripe) and the the 3rd brake light wire (Red w/ White Stripe). Again all three of these wires are to be connected together.

4) Throw away your broken Tail Lamp Failure Sensor
Do not plug your sensor back in. Doing so will cause the annoying orange lamp failure warning light on your dash to stay on. Leave it unplugged ant the light will stay off.

5) Test your work
Turn on your lights and make sure your tail lights work properly. Have a friend step on the brake pedal, and make sure your brake lights work properly as well. Dont forget to check the Third brake light.

1995 Camry tail/brake light


You should as a first step examine the wiring loom where it attaches to the trunk lid hinge. Camrys of that era became well known for fraying and breaking of the wiring in that spot. You may have a breakage or short circuit.

1997 Chevy Lumina REAR BRAKE LIGHTS DONT WORK


This will either be a fuse or the brake light switch which is on the pedal it's self. More likely the switch as these are fickle at best.

All my lamp indicator lights keep flashing. blickers work. when you step on break the break lights work. but when driving no tail lights


First replace the tail light bulbs. The tail light and brake lights are different filaments in the same bulb. it is very possible for the tail lights to go out while brake lights still work. And somtimes the tail lights can blow out together.
If you change the bulbs and still dont work then look for other problems.

Brake light dont work. 2006 chevy truck, 4.8L 2wd


Some of these had two fuses for brake lights. One for the top/center stop lamp and another for the rear left and right brake lights. Usually one said "stop" and the other said "brake" and one was in the underhood panel while the other was in the dash fuse panel. It's not uncommon to blow a brake light fuse [LR and RR] if you tow a trailer but some of these had seperate fuses for the trailer lights also. If you have a test light check both sides of the two fuses for power [ignition key on] while stepping on the brakes. It should at lest narrow your search a bit.

On my 1999 chevy caviler both my brake light and blinkers dont work besides the problem being the "pigs tail" what else could it be?


check the turn signal switch its self the brake light circuit is a main part of that switch and when you have both! turn light and brake light issues theres a 97% chance it's the turn switch itself

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.
