Question about Volkswagen Beetle
Tail and brake lights won't work on right side of car. Left side tail light works but not the brake light. I have replaced the fuses and the bulbs.
Pull your brake light assmb out and check your connections including ground

Hey there,Sounds like there could be a problem with the grounding of the electrical circuit. With older cars the wiring often becomes corroded and rusted. Try replacing the wires that are bolted or screwed to the chassis of the car next to the break wiring and tail lights. Make sure you scratch away any paint around the new ground, to make sure you get a good connection.

SOURCE: no tail lights
You should have a fuse panel under you dash inside. This is where the fuses are located for lights. Don't know the exact location, but you can pull each fuse to see if it is bad. This won't hurt anything. It just keeps you from hunting down a diagram of where the fuse is located.

These are Dual Function Bulbs. They control the Parking Lights and the Brake Lights. This Bulb is Burnt out on the Brake Coil inside the Bulb. I have actually seen Bulbs that were Bad But you could not Tell by jast looking at them. It should be fine with a New Bulb. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

most rear tail lights and turn/stop lights are the same dual filiment bulb. it is possible for your tail light to work and your brake light not to and still have a bad bulb. I would check the bulb first, your brake light works on the left yes? this would mean that the fuse is fine

sometimes a bad ground can cause this. when the other lights are not being used the brake light can backfeed through another bulb to get a ground.

Replace the right rear brake lamp. The bulb possible use two filaments one for brake and tail light. One burnt out filament in one bulb.
