SOURCE: interior lights not working

I would think that if all the switches on the doors are good, and the bulb is good, check to see if there is power to the lights. There should be power there at all times; the switches give the light a ground. Or, the ground point physically on the lamp assby needs cleaned.

SOURCE: Rear interior light and door courtesy lights not working- Jaguar

take off the cover and replace them. if you have a volt/ohm meter you can put if on the car side and make sure you have voltage and the ohm meter on the buldb should give a 1 rating if its good. it would be the cheapest and easiest to just get a new bulb and see if it works then start checking fuses if its not the bulb.

check your brake light switch on the brake pedal. See if it has power. Check one side for poer and the other for power while applying the brakes. If it has power its most likely the turn signal switch Brake lights also go thru that switch.

BMW 650 Tail Light Problem


If you find that your BMW 650 CS/GS/Dakar tail light doesn’t work at all or flickers when riding, chances are the metal power terminals inside the bulb socket are no longer making a good connection with the metal bumps on the tail light bulb. This is a very common problem with the BMW 650 of all makes, models, and years. Fortunately, there is a very easy fix.
Due to excessive vibration, temperature changes, and replacing light bulbs, the two metal power terminal tabs inside the tail light socket deform and get pushed too far back inside the tail light chassis. This prevents the tail light bulb from making good contact with the power terminals and the smallest vibrations can cause the electric connection to break temporarily or indefinitely.

To fix the problem, all you need to do is pry the two metal power tabs forward just a little so that they make a better connection with the metal bumps on the tail light bulb. If you look at the back of the bike, the red tail light casing on the 650 CS/GS/Dakar is held in place with two screws. If you remove these screws the red tail light casing comes off and you have access to the light bulb inside. At this point, turn the ignition on, but you don’t need to start the bike. Remove the light bulb by pushing in and twisting clockwise about 1/8 turn. If the bulb flickered while removing it, then the bent power terminals are most likely the cause.
Looking at the tail light bulb you should see two metal bumps. These bumps need to make a good connection with the two metal power terminals inside the tail light casing. Turn the ignition off and find a small tool that you can use to pry the power terminals forward just a bit. Make sure the bike is off and you don’t want the power terminals tabs inside the tail light casing to touch.
After you have made the adjustment, turn the ignition back to “on” and re-insert the taillight bulb. If the bulb is lit, then you are done. If it still flickers a bit and doesn’t stay lit, then you will need to continue prying the tabs forward until a good connection is made.

One Brake Light Not Working


Inspect Brake Light Bulb: The number one reason for a brake light operation failure is a failed brake light bulb. To check this condition access the bulb by removing the rear cover located in the trunk or rear compartment. Some cars allow you to remove the entire brake light lens to retrieve the brake light bulb. Once the bulb has been removed inspect the bulb filament. If it looks broken or if the bulb is smoked the bulb needs to be replaced. If you have replaced the bulb but it still doesn't work remove the bulb. With the key in the "on" position have someone hold their foot on the brake pedal and use a grounded test light to carful test the terminals inside the light socket. One of the terminals should illuminate the test light. (Note: Do not touch the outer metal ring that holds the bulb in place for it is grounded and can blow the system fuse if connected to the inner terminals.) If the test light illuminates reinstall the brake light bulb. While the brake pedal is depressed test the outer metal ring that holds the bulb, if power is present the ground lead from the light socket is bad. If the outer ring does not illuminate the bulb has failed and replacement is required.

Scan BCM for Trouble Codes: Some cars are equipped with a body control module or BCM this onboard computer controls and lighting signals and can malfunction not allowing the electrical current to continue to the brake light circuits. This condition is rare but it can happen. If you have performed all of the tests above and all results are positive scan the BCM for trouble codes if no codes are present try replacing the BCM.

Left side headlamp would work on low beam only,replace with ner bulb but problem still exist


Hi,
Looks like the headlight relay problem or the main switch.
Check the headlight relay by interchanging similar relay on the relay box, turn on the head light switch when doing that.
If the relay is still in good condition, the problem would be the headlight switch combination, that's the usual problem of Nissan, the metal contactors melted down the plastic cam that pushes the metal contact. Replace it if that is the problem.
Clean also the headlight bulb base contact, there might only be a mis contact of bulb.
Hope that FixYa helps you out!

Replaced map/dome/door bulbs with vleds bulbs, bent map light socket and tried to fix with screwdriver, caused spark, now none of the mentioned lights work and dash clock reset to 1:00 Blown fuse? Fuse...


Blown fuse. Do you have your owner's handbook? The fuse should be labeled. The location will be inside the car. Look under the dash on the driver's side and you may have to pull fuses to make sure they are good, but it should be only 1 fuse.

Check your fusebox. Very likely you have a blown fuse, or fuses. Bulbs don't generally go out all at once.
