SOURCE: tail lights and brake lights not working with headlights on

We had the same problem with ours, that is a Saturn recall items. Check with your Saturn dealer to see if it is still in effect. It use to make our headlight switch get hot. I think it was a poor ground in the taillight housing, I use to wiggle the bulb plug-ins and that helped for a while, but after the recall was fixed it never did it again.

Check the brake switch. A bad brake switch will fail to turn on the brake lights.

SOURCE: 1996 Ford Ranger No Tail lights. I have brake

If you happen to have a trailer wiring adapter plugged into the harness, remove it first and see if they start working. I've more than one of those mess up the rear lights. If you have the three-bulb tail lights, use a test light to see if there is power to the tail bulb sockets. If there isn't, replace that fuse just to be sure, then trace back the harness to find the break in the wiring.

No rear brake lights


If you have power thru the brake light switch, the next component to test is the turn signal switch. If the regular brake lights and turn signals are on the same circuit they both go thru the turn signal switch.

1997 ford contour tail lights won't work but brake lights do already changed bulbs what fuse is for parking light


There are 2 fuses,left and right, so I dont think both could be out? fuses. 33 and 35. make sure they have power on both sides of the fuse. If one side has power, its blown, if no power, the headlamp switch is bad, or bad connection. The RED/BLACK wires coming out of the headlamp switch go to those fuses. 33-35

The REAR turn signals & most of the brake lights (except for the small light on top) on my 2000 contour svt are not working. Why would this be happening?
