    Left and right brake lights don't work, but all other lights do including the middle brake light. Mechanics have checked the brake pedal switch and it is working. Dealer wants to replace the whole assembly, says connectors have melted and/or are bent. I have bought 2 tail light assemblies over the past 2 years. Now I have the same problem again. Any ideas????

    Both brake lights are out. Cyclops light works, all other lights work.  I replaced the bulbs, obviously, didn't fix it.  I checked with a meter and I'm getting only 11 volts at the brake light assembly.  I checked at the fuse and there is 12.2 volts.  I'm suspicious that there is an electronic relay that's gone bad, but I don't know where it would be. And it can't be the same one that powers "cyclops".  Mysterious.

Most likely this is a brake light switch issue. Replace switch.

If your emergency flashers don't work, all flasher bulbs are fine, but flashing too fast, then check and replace Hazard light switch.

My brake lights and rear blinkers are not working. I have replaced the bulbs in both brake lights. What next?


most blinkers uses relays, and when they flashes fast one light is out, but you replaced your burnt bulb might be a bad relay.

Tail lights wont work


sounds like ground problem- remove tail lights and look for wires going to body -remove screww clean grounding area and replace- both sides. You did not say whether the lights work when car is off? With car off and brake pedal pushed is there any brake lights ? If not procede with above.
