Those trucks have a problem with the circuit board that the bulbs plug into. Unplug all the bulbs and see if one is burnt or melted. The fix is usually replacing the board.

Ford f550 brake lights and tail lights, only the passenger side works, driver side doesn't from cab back. The running lights work but no turn, no brake light.


Trace the wiring harness and pull apart the multi plugs to check for corrosion. Check the ground wires have a good clean ground, clean to metal and grease afterwards. Do the hazard flashers work all corners? If not check the flasher unit.

I have 89 bronco 2 my brake lights turn signals both work my tail lights don't work have check fuse n blubs what might be the problem


The turn signals and brake lights use the same circuit and filament in the bulbs. The tail lights are on the other circuit which comes from the headlight switch.
Do you have power on the tail light fuse ?

Brake lights don't work but third brake light does


I believe the flashers are on a different circute. It sounds like a bad ground.....or one of your taillight sockets is bad. I have a cavilier that had the same problem. I went to a junk yard and found some light socket s and swopped them. So far it has been working. The third light has its own ground. tail light sockets need to have a good ground, some times the ground from batt. to block, ground frome block to frame can be bad.
Think "ground"
Don't try and buy new sockets , unless they are just like the fasctory sockets. getting the entire tail light works good. Find the main tail light, the juce comes to it first, then passes to other side. Check that dide frst. work your wat over to other side, if u cant find a problem, work your way to the front and find out where the lights are grounded.
good luck

I have recently replaced the wiring in my utility trailer and mechanic has tested lights when in the shop and says they're all working fine. Hooked it up to my pathfinder and lights were not working. ...


lights on the trailer are supposed to only work when the vehicle has its lights turned on. brake light problems is easy to figure out. it should run off a yellow wire for driver and a green for passenger. see if you have power with brake on. if so check the bulb. if not then check your 4 way flashers which run off the same general circuit. if 4 ways work but no brake lights double check your converter connections.

Need to replace the turn signal flasher. the dash lites & tail lights don't work.


It is located behind the fuse block on the driver's side. When you open the drivers door you can plainly see the fuse block. (marked "FUSES") Flasher is behind that. You have to get to it from under the dash. Take out panels under steering wheel. If you get your head down by the brake pedal you can see it.
When someone changed theirs, they took out the little bracket that holds it in and relocated it to a lower place - they clipped the flasher bracket onto the little access door closest to the emergency brake (on the panel that you have to take out). Luckily the wires were long enough to enable this, so if you have to change it again, it's a lot easier.
