Right Side taillight and front fog light not working
Standard fuses checked, bulbs checked but still no passenger side brake light and front fog light will work. Cannot find source of issue! Can someone give me an idea of where to look next? Thanks, Diane

Re: Right Side taillight and front fog light not working
If you have a test light, connect direct to wire feeding tail light and a body ground to see if there is power. If there is, take probe and touch ground wire of bulb. If you test light comes on, you have lsot ground. If this has helped, please post as helpful. For faster help, please go live chat

The bulbs are most likely burnt out. Right Front will be difficult to replace. Rear bulb is easy. You need to open trunk and find 4 nuts that hold the light in and remove them and the taillight will come out rearward. Locate the bad bulb your owners manual will tell you the number. It also will be on the bulb. The front I replaced when one of my headlights went out and I had to take apart the front of the car and I replaced ALL the bulbs and put it back together.
check park/tail fuse regarding dash ,park ,tail problem .brake light on passenger side is probably the brake globe needs replacing .Turn signals on passenger side could be globes or switch,check globes first ,if globes and fuse are ok ,may well be the switch especially if park switch and turn signals are on the same switch lever/stalk
Check your fuses underneath the drivers side steering wheel. Flip the plastic cover over and there will be a diagram showing the fuse that controls the taillights/stoplamp. Pull the fuse out and replace it with the same number fuse and your taillights and brake lights will work again. If the fuses are ok, pull each taillight bulb out and replace it with a new bulb. Sometimes when one light bulb fails, all of them will fail.
Check the bulb, socket interface, clean contact points. IF you have a test light or ohmeter, check for power to the socket. If unpowered, check the fuse, if powered check bulb element, and socket condition.
That's the rear foglight socket. The rear foglight idea is European, and they ship the Audi over with a rear foglight as well, but it's only on the driver's side (that's the way rear fogs are done in Europe). That socket is fully powered though, and wired to the same dash switch as the driver's side rear fog. What you can do (what I did on my 99 A4) was to use a drill and **** out the rectangular opening in the rear taillight panel, and then put a bulb in that socket. Voila, instant dual rear fogs.
This is a good idea because in Europe, the police understand that a rear fog is only on one side. In the US, our police don't always know that, and you may get pulled over if you have that on - they may think you have a blown taillight bulb. Do the dual fog mod as described above - it'll save you the hassle and it looks better too.
If all of the wiring, fuses, bulbs, and switches are good (which is what it seems since everything else works fine including the turn signals on the passenger taillight), sounds like it may just be a bad socket. I have a somewhat similar problem on a 1986 F150.
