Now that's funny! Rear fixed...front pops! Since the rear is where the work took place you need to check for crossed wires at the brake lights and turn signal lights. If there is uneven current draw on the circuits, the lights in front could be getting some of the power. Brake lights get the most power in the rear bulbs!

SOURCE: break light will not work

It's blowing the fuse because there is a short somewhere in the circuit. Your inspection just hasn't found it yet. Look for bare spots on the wiring; places where the wire might be pressed against metal (especially sharp edges); damaged connectors; etc.

SOURCE: Recently our brake lights have stopped working all

Bad brake light switch. It's just above your brake pedal under dash. Small plastic switch w/a couple of wires. Easy fix.

My abs and brake light stay on while am driving


The computer has detected a condition that indicates a fault with the ABS/Traction system. Typically that's caused by a wheel sensor problem, but it can also be caused by a faulty connector, peripheral device or the computer.
The above is the shop or garage answear. How about telling us how to fix the problem , besides replacing the computer or wheel sensor? How do we check these things?
Sometimes can be as simple as a short circuit in the rear break lights or a faulty connection in the break lights.
You can start checking the break light system. Then the sensors and finally the computer.

Replace license plate lights


Hi there,

Firstly, remove the four screws on the bottom of the license plate light assembly using a Phillips screwdriver. Then pull the license plate light cover out away from the rear of the car. Pull the bulb forward and pull it straight out of the wiring socket.

A press the new bulb into place until it is secure. Push the bulb and wiring assembly back up inside the light assembly and replace the license plate light cover. Replace the four screws that secure the light cover and tighten them with a Phillips screwdriver. Finally, turn on the lights to test the new bulb.

Hope this helps...

My break lights work fine until i turn on my head lights Once my head lights are turned on the driver side brake light does not work & if i turn my left side turn signal on it will flash really fast....


It sounds like a bad earth connection in the vehicle rear wiring loom. Check the earth wire that runs from the globe sockets in the light units and any connectors in the wiring loom near the light assemblies as well as where the earth wire is attached to the body. If necessary, remove, clean thoroughly by removing any corrosion or paint and re-attach securely.

My 2005 Tacoma was hit in the rear and since then not rear lights


You did right so far. Once you have lowered the tailgate and removed the upper and lower 10mm bolts the tail light assembly should be loose and moving a little bit. There are only 2 push-in plastic posts holding it at this point now. Then you have to pull back the assembly firmly, hit on the external side of the assembly with the palm of your hand and it will pop out. DO NOT try to pry with a screwdriver or any other tools.

Disconnect wires connections, replace burned or broken bulbs, make test. If it doesn't work check if the wiring has been affected by the accident.

Hope it will help

How to change the back light


Open the rear door and look for 2 pop-off caps on the suspected tail light assembly covering philips screws. If you remove both screws, the tail lightassembly becomes quite loose.

The last step is to give a firm tug, directly backward. The whole assembly is held in place with three small plastic clips (round cone shaped devices pushed through holes in the rear body work with a rubber "washer" protecting the paint).

You have to pry them loose from their insertion mounts to remove the assembly. A firm tug works well, but don't pull to the side or you may break the clip (or clips), and then have to replace those too. Once you've pulled the assembly off, the lights are easily accessed and replaced.

To reassemble, simply reverse the process.

[Note: there is no cover for the bottom screw on the rear door hinge side. It is exposed. There are two possible bolts on the bottom side of the door; the one for the tail light assembly is the one you can remove with a philips head screw. It can be accessed by opening the door and fitting a screw driver through the opening behind the door.]

1998 S10 rear break lights and blinkers do not work.


If the fuses or brake light switch were bad your third brake light would not work same with the multi purpose switch. you either have a wiring problem like some broken wires or the actual light sockets are bad. it is common with gm trucks that the circuit board for the tail lights melts and does not make contact.

Need to replace a left tail light fuse


There isn't a fuse for each side- it controls all your tail lights so if you have all except the l/s then your bulb is blown or you have a wire issue with that light. Take off the two screws from the inside edge (hex head) and pop out the light bulb and try a new one. That's a cheap fix, if that doesn't work then check the fuses or vise-a-versa, but I don't think you have a fuse issue. Have you ever been hit in the bumper? Unfortunately the wire harness runs right along the upper radius of the bumper from left to right and it really difficult to access, but if one of those wires has a pinch in it, it could cause your left light to not work. My daughter got rear ended and had this very problem and I have to pop off the fascia and access the harness and found the break. I doubt if you have that problem though...just theck your bulb.
