Reverse light dont work


No they should only come on when you put in reverse or else everyone would think you were backing up! its your bulb if just one, the fuse if both or the reverse switch indicator... Good Luck

My backlight is not working and i dont know which fuse to change


not sure what you mean by backlight.. reverse light ? rear dome light? trunk light? brake light? most likely its a bulb that has blown not a fuse... if its reverse lights then you may have a bad reverse switch not sending the signal to the lights.

I just purchased a 1996 cavalier. It didn't have an owners manual and i need to know what the abrieviations on the fuse box stand for. I'm trying to find the fuse for the brake lights and rear turn...


Hi, the likely problem is the turn signal switch. The signals and brake lights use different fuses. You can get an owners manual here:

A new switch is about $40, and it isn't too hard to replace. Make sure you get one that has the same controls as yours does. To replace the switch, remove the covers from the steering column, disconnect the switch and unscrew it from the column.

Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Main brake lights not working but led bar light does. Have renewed bulbs checked fuses &new brake light switch


The only thing left it could be is a short. Might have a dead wire running through. If you have a volt meter, check the pulse. I don't know the exact ohms but it is not much, maybe 1.5

I recently replaced the front rotors, brake pads and master cylinder in my 2003 Durango. I've since discovered that the brake lights are not working, including the 3rd brake light in the tailgate. I...


Hello, Well there is not much more it could be unless you have a shorted wire or a burned fuse. I would normally think that the turn signal canceler was bad but the 3rd brake light will still work if that is bad so I would check all fuses and for bare or shorted wires.

tail lights work on a different filament than the rest of the lights you mentioned, it is possible both bulbs are burned out for that filament. if not, check the fuses as the tail light circuit in some cars is on a seperate fuse. the remaining possibility could be bad socket contacts.

Not your typical brake light problem...


hello what i would do first disconnect the wires off the brake light switch test the power wire to make sure you have power to the switch if you do contact them to bypass the switch completely test see if your lights are lit if not i would trace the wiring back to the sockets contacts inside might be corroded or wires in the socket are not contacting the metal tab or broken at the crimp they sell replacement sockets you can splice into the harness if you dont have power at the break light wires you need to trace wires back to fuse panel first check to make sure there is not a secondary fuse box under your hood usually on drivers side near the strut tower usally says fuses goodluck please rate
