No brake lights and only 1 taillight works on driver side and no brake lights on passenger but I do have tail lights


Check your bulbs. There are two filaments in each bulb, one for tail light and one for the brake light, so it's possible to have a tail light with not turn signal or brake light.

When light switch is off only 3rd brake light work, when switch is on the back lights are stuck on 3rd light works normal what could be the problem?


Are the brake lights stuck on or are you just seeing the parking lights on without the brake lights lighting up? Sounds like you have no rear brake lights, check your emergency light switch. Sometimes it may not switch completely, turn it on and off a few time and then recheck it.

Tail lights/turn signals and driver brake lights work, passenger-side brake light doesn't


Find a multimerter or an ohmmeter and someone to work it and test the socket to see if electricity is getting to the bulb. Someone will need to push on the brake pedal whilst someone else tests it.
Sometimes a wire can break, or sometimes a metal contact inside the socket can go bad, or can bend in such a manner that the bulb no longer contacts it. Also, sometimes new bulbs are defective.
Be blessed.

Passenger tail light inoperational. i switched the harnesses and the driver side works when i switch the female ends. found a frayed wire on the passenger side... spliced it and did not get any changes. ...


check the driver side! Usually those old subs were wired to use the driving side first and then pigtail over to the passenger side... Also, alot of the tail light problems are caused from mud & snow piling up behind your back bumper... this cause weight on the wires and SNAP! Tail lights stop working! You're just going to have to follow that wire harness back until you find it! By the way, Check your ground behind the tail light covers! They also tend to rust and loose connections! Another problems are the sockets going bad! I replaced mine about once evey 5 years... annoying, bad got to love suburbans!

DRIVER SIDE TAIL LIGHT BRAKE LIGHT OR TURN SIGNAL DONT WORK BUT P


if you have the diagram,have a look for a ground problem.ground the assembly to the side that works.the other thing to do if you have a test light is check that there is 12 volts on off on the signal on one bulb pin and steady 12v on the run and stop lights.that means there is an open ground......

99 mercury mystide had rear running light broken


If the driver's side tail light is working, it's not a fuse. Use a test light to check for power at the bulb holder. One terminal will be for tail light, the other for brake/turn light. If the is constant power for tail light, replace bulb. If no power, trace wiring from bulb holder to driver's side junction. Probable broken wire between the two tail lights.
