    Exactly the same as j_gotti82's.

    I checked all the same and got the same results. Sounds like I have to dig into the wiring.

SOURCE: signal and brake lights work but no taillights of

Your owners manual should tell you, but look under drivers side dash as well, for a black panel that you undo , and drop down to expose another fuse panel.

Find the fuse that relates to the brake lights and turn signals, then with a vault meter check both sides of the fuse for battery voltage and trace back from there.

The tail lights on my 2006 dodge grand caravan don't work. Any ideas as what could be wrong?


Check that the fuse is not blown and that there is no wiring fault. Otherwise check that the lights are not blown as well, and look at the following YT video to illustrate the removal of the light:

How do I fix brake lights on my 2001 Dodge Ram? I have tail lights but no brake lights. I checked the fuse & its not blown.


do the signals lights work at the back if so then it sounds like you have a bad brake light switch or its out of adjustment. the brake lights and the signal lights work the same bulbs but are controlled by different circuits. the switch is located under the dash at the base of the steering colume were the brake pedal pushes against the switch.

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.

On my 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan the brake lights and back turn signals work fine. I changed the bulbs no luck. Any ideas


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Try checking your signal fuse and tail lamp fuse for the brake lights. They may have blown. If they are good, for the brake lights, you could have a bad brake switch, which is located right above your brake pedal. As for the turn signals, you could have a bad wire somewhere in the harness. Check closely at the bulb sockets. It is possible that you could have a loose wire at the signal switch or a bad wire.

Back turn signals aand brake lights are out, but the the tail light s work. What does this mean and how can i fix it. i checked the fuses and did not see any burnt out


Because the brake and tail(or running lights) are two different circuits. You should find that the stop and turn-signals have their own fuse. Even if the fuse looks okay it may not be. But if you replace the fuse and it still doesn't work try the four-way flasher. If the lights in the rear flash and the brake lights still don't work. Your problem then becomes a power distribution problem. If you know about test lights and troubleshooting this type of problem check for power at the connections for the stop/turn-signal fuse. The power side of the fuse should be the one that has two wires hooked up to it.

2001 Explorer Sport ,Rear Driver Brake Light and Turn Sig. Broke


Rear lights are double filament bulbs one side for the lights other side for the brake/turn signals so it still may be a bulb. Do u have a test light or volt meter you can check to make sure u have power there when brakes or turn signals are activated. Or just try another bulb.

Brake lights won't work.


Check the brake switch. It is located done by the brake pedal. The power goes from the fuse, through the brake switch, then to the bulbs.

My Dodge Caravan ST 3.4 LTR instrement cluster.


Your Hazard fuse is blown.
Hazard fuse has the instrument gauges on it in addition to the turn and brake lights.

When one of my brake lights went on my 07 Caravan it when short for a time and took out this fuse.

I would guess the brake fuse ( this does not use the same fuse as the tail lights/blinkers) or the ground for the brake light bulb.
