Rear lights no Vauxhall Astra not working properly

The rear tail light on the drivers side doesnt work and the brake light on the passenger side doesnt work. I have changed the bulbs, it is one bulb for both the brake and tail light so both are working in some respect. Any ideas?

Good old astra ,i have one a 1.6 GT from 1993 ,a flying machine when my tools are not in the boot and spare battery or two, anyway suspect a fault or dirty earth connection in your case here ,find the comunial earth for the light cluster and run another earth from this wire but leave the old one connected just slice and splice it with a bit of tape and it will all work .

You will need to start tracing the wiring. I have found "green" wiring in these vehicles for many electrical problems. Start at the front and work your way back.

With headlights off, tail lights and brake lights work. With headlights on, tail lights work. But only one brake light works (drivers side). Why doesn't passenger side brake light work?


Replace the right rear brake light bulb. It is possible that the filament has burnt out and has fallen across to rest on the brake light filament. This would cause the condition you are experiencing.

I would like a diagram of the 740 gle 1990 tail light wiring, I cannot seem to get them working correctly


You don't really need a diagram, it's simple. If you open both tail light boxes in the trunk you will see at the connector on the bottom a yellow wire in the first position. That goes to the brake bulb. If both tail lights do not work, make sure you are getting power to the driver side light first, if it is not getting power, the passenger side will not work either, they are in line with each other. If it is only the passenger side not working, the bridging wire could be bad.. try jumping it. Also, make sure you are getting power inside the tail light bulb holder. The metal connections can come loose. If there is no power to the driver side tail light it could be the bulb failure relay, that is the round red relay in the rear left side of the fuse box behind the ash tray/ cigarette lighter below the radio in front of the shifter. You should be getting power to the third brake light in the rear window...that is a different circuit and will not be affected. Try changing out the bulb failure relay, it supplies the power to the tail lights.

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee - Brake lights not working properly. With lights off Driver side no brake light when brake is engaged. With lights on and all rear lights on, engage brake - no driver brake light...


The problem is that the tail lights, light bulbs get too hot and melt the plastic where the bulb socket goes into the lens assembly. On the lens assembly you will see one to three metal tabs where the socket fits into. Lift up the tab a little bit with a screw driver and place a small amount of either metal or plastic underneath the tab so it will get a good connection. It will fix the problem.

99 mercury mystide had rear running light broken


If the driver's side tail light is working, it's not a fuse. Use a test light to check for power at the bulb holder. One terminal will be for tail light, the other for brake/turn light. If the is constant power for tail light, replace bulb. If no power, trace wiring from bulb holder to driver's side junction. Probable broken wire between the two tail lights.

Brake lights do not work (3rd brakelight does) changed bulbs checked fuse


Problem could be the Brake Light Control Module. That's about the only other thing other than a bad wire somewhere if the bulbs and fuses are good. 91 Accord has 2. One on each side in the smaller of the 2 rear tail light lenses. In order to change the module you have to remove the smaller of the rear tail lights. Drivers side is 5 pin. Passenger side is 6 pin.
