Question about Cars & Trucks
Front, back and side tail lights are not working. Bulbs have been replaced but still are not working!
Posted by Anonymous on
On the high mount brake light on a 2008 Toyota avensis, the lamp in a 21w single element type. The thing to check here is the ground connection at the side of the holder. if an attempt has been made to put the lamp in the wrong way, the side connector will have been pushed flat and will not connect. after disconnecting the lamp holder the connection tab can be bent back into position.

Check the brake light fuse. The high mounted brake light (third brake light) is on a different circuit than the brake lights. Hope this helps.

Could you take out a bulb and with a testlight/probe check that you do in fact have power to that circuit .Also check that they are the correct bulb for that application I have seen people put indicator bulbs in where therse supposed to be a double filament bulb.Does the base of the bulbs lead contacts line up with the two steel terminals inside the plug?

looking at your schematics and , you say tail lights don't work , you didn't mention if front parking lights and license plate lights are working , they all come from the same source , a black /yellow wire , a good clue if front work and rear don't , please advise .if fronts work then you have a open circuit somewhere between junction S118 (near breakout for left headlamp) and rear sockets.

check the wiring from the tailights back to the fuse panel, it sounds like an open connection. if i recall correctly check under the dash on the drivers side near the fuse panel for a bunch of wires in a bundle and look carefully for a wire or two that are cut/shorted/or seperated, you can also check under the drivers side kick panel by the hood release.
