First, check your Alternator! All lights are grounded and a bad alternator charge the ground causing all kinds of weird behaviour.....

Why taillights do not come on, but the brakelights and signal lights work


check the fuses for a burnt fuse. the taillight circuit has its own fuse and wiring. its possible the headlight switch is bad but this doesn`t happen very often.

Passanger side taillight is out. Turn signal and brake light still works. Tested light socket it still works.


Probably the bulb.

Combo tail light/turn signal/brake light bulbs are dual filaments.

The tail light (which is one filament) is on more often than the others (which are the second filament, which is brighter).

How to change a tail light bulb in a honda element


Open the hatch and the tailgate.

Remove the two mounting screws with a Phillips-head screwdriver, and remove the taillight assembly from the body by pulling it back.

Determine which of the three bulbs is burned out: brake/taillight, turn signal light or backup light. (I assume you’ve already determined this)

Remove the socket by turning it one-quarter turn counterclockwise.

Pull the bulb straight out of its socket.

Push the new bulb straight into the socket until it bottoms.

Reinstall the socket into the light assembly by turning it clockwise until it locks.

Test the lights to make sure the new bulb is working.

When reinstalling the taillight assembly, first place the two pins in the holes in place. Tighten the two mounting bolts.

Hope this is helpful to you.

Chang brakelights on a sebrig


Hello!

  1. Open the trunk by using the driver's side trunk release latch or by manually unlocking it.
  2. Peel back the trunk liner to expose the wiring connector and taillight housing plastic retainers.
  3. Disconnect the wiring connector, loosen the plastic retainers and remove the taillight assembly from the car.
  4. Twist the turn signal bulb socket counterclockwise to remove it from the taillight assembly. Then, pull the malfunctioning bulb straight out of the socket.
  5. Insert the replacement bulb directly into the empty socket and then twist the socket back into the taillight assembly.
  6. Reinstall the tail light assembly.
  7. Activate the turn signal to make sure it's working. If it lights up, fasten the trunk lining back into place and close the trunk

Taillights will not work, but turn sig, brakelights work, fuses are all good


Some makes and models have different taillight bulbs and brakelight bulbs. in other words your turn signals and brakelights are on one bulb and the tailights are on another, or they have multiple filaments and one of them could be bad

Tail lights stay on when car is off


Check this 1st.With the car running,turn on the headlights.If the taillight gets brighter,it's the brakelight that is staying on.Turn the headlights off to see if that then makes it less bright.If so.try lifting the brake pedal up.If the taillights go out,it is the brakelight sensor switch that is hooked up to the brake pedal.This is a small pushswitch,located at the top of the brake pedal in the inside of the car.It will have 2 wires connected to it.It either needs adjusting or is faulty.Hope this helps

2004 Pontiac Montana Brake Lights, Pwr Window and Cruise all Quit


The same thing happened to my 2002 Montana minus the power window problem.

The brake lights and the cruise control are somehow tied in together.

I went to the scrapyard and ripped off a couple circuit boards from an old Lumina ($25 for the set) since there were no Montanas on site.

The problem seems to be when one brakelight goes the bulk of the current transfers to the other light and will blow it too.

Anyways you said you tried replacing the circuit boards and it did not work so sorry I could not be of more help.

No brakelights or taillights.


How did you connect the test light. Clip to frame or clip to one terminal and pointer to other terminal. If you hooked the clip to frame and the pointer to a terminal and it lit, it means that you have power there but not necessarily ground, because your test light provided the ground. What I would do is first of all not use a test light but use a multimeter instead, you can get relatively cheap one (10-30 dollars). The problem is that a test light only indicates that voltage is available not how much voltage is available, a couple of volts will light the bulb in the test light (you want to see battery volts). It's hard to tell the difference between a half lit bulb or a full lit bulb depending on the light from the sun/garage. Use a multimeter and check the clips on both sides of the car. Also check all fuses whether they indicate lights or not. If you put one lead of the multimeter to frame and the other to a terminal and have battery volts the positive side of the circuit is good. Put the other multimeter lead on the other terminal if you don't have battery volts, you have an open ground. When checking volts make sure the brake pedal is depressed. Good luck

Left brake light stays on


Usually when your signal blinks rapidly it indicates a blown bulb.   Switch on your four-way flashers and check your bulbs at each corner.  On the brake light staying lit, check to see if the left-rear bulb is installed correctly and is the correct bulb for the application.  I've seen people force bulbs in sockets causing the braking element of the bulb to light instead of the parking element.  The braking element is much brighter than the parking element.
