I have no brake lights


If you turn on the headlights and the tailights work the other element in the bulb could be blown out try the emergency flashers if they are out to it's the bulbs change them if not then you have a blown fuse

I have a 1999 saturn sl1 and my tailights and dashlights quit working. i changed the fuse and it blew. so i changed the fuse again and it lasted about three minutes before it blew again. where do i start...


Okay, these are hard to find. I assume you have no problem when you do not have the Tailights on? This would mean problem could run all the way to rear taillights.

But if the problem is not related to putting power through the wires to the taillights it is under the dash area. You would have a short from the power supply to the lightswitch. You have a Relay for the lights in the Powerbox.

Go to Autozone.com Website and register your vehicle for a free wiring diagram and Powerbox layout.

You can then see for yourself about how the dashlights are grouped with the taillights. You could have a bad Relay.

Look at how the taillights get their power and this will show you a color/coded path from the front to rear of your car. As I said earlier, it is important to know if the lights only short when they are turned on by the headlight switch.

If they short out all the time, regardless of the headlight switch being on or off, then the short is more towards the front, between the dash and Relay or the Relay itself.

Use the built-in cutoff points as a way of eliminating the shorted part. The headlight switch is a cutoff point. Power rearward is halted with the except of the Brakelights. If the Brakelights work fine, the bulb sockets are probably grounded properly.

If the fuse pops with the headlamps off, the power is not going rearward and you are okay.

Taillights don't work, turn signals and brakelights do.


I would check the bulbs, the fuse for the tailights, if okay, maybe the headlight switch.

Rear brake lights stopped working


Check your fuses of course,you probably did.Listen your not going to believe this,the wire at the brake light switch can be bad.sometines the wire can break inside the vinyl cover just a milameter.use a test light for presence of voltage at the switch and check a few inches back to see it voltage is present. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE VOLTAGE AT THE SWITCH!

Brake lights out; bulb, fuse okay


Sounds like you need to replace your brake light switch.  It is located on your brake pedal and you should be able to pick it up for around $20-$30 at your local parts store.

Replaced brakelight switch ,still no brake lights, and tailights


Check to make sure you have the correct bulb in them. Even though the parts store may have had a part number, sometimes they don't get them right. If those are correct check the relays and or the socket itself.

Tailights dont turn on


You have POSSIBLY 1. Headlight Switch bad
2. Disconnected or Corroded Ground in trunk
3. Make Absolutly sure the tail lamp FUSE is good
These are realy the only things I would suspect , Because Brakelights and Reverse lights are on

No parlking lights


First thing I'd check would be the fuse for the stop lights. If it is okay the next thing I'd check would be the stoplight switch located under the dash where the brake pedal is suspended.

  1. check if the turn signels work. check the brake petal switch underneath the brake petal-also check the operation of the emergency flashers for operation. all of these items are related.

1989 Lincoln Town Car Problem:


I would say that your problem would be in your headlight switch. Remove and test wire leading to tail lights.
