There are 3 different fuses that can affect your STOP/TAIL lamps in the Central Junction Box (Bottom of dash drivers side)
They are fuse position F2.42 / 15amp

F2.57 / 7.5amp
F2.58 / 7.5amp
I hope this helps

Driver side tail lights and front corner light won't come on, doesn't seem to be a fuse...any help??

There would be a fuse for tails and corner lamps, but if the other side is okay, then the fuse is good. Check your bulbs, try new ones, sometimes you can't tell by looking when a bulb is bad. If new bulbs don't work either, it may be a ground for the side not working, or the bulb sockets may have a problem.

Tail lights on '01 lexus 430 wont come on

Check fuses first for rear park lamps. I do believe there will be 2 fuses for RR & LR tail lamps. Owners manual will state the location of the fuse junction box. If both fuses are good, I would next check to see if the park/brake lamp bulbs are good and are the correct type. If the bulbs are correct and okay, the turn signal stalk assembly has failed and needs to be replaced. BEFORE YOU REPLACE THAT PART............. If you have a trailer hitch installed, check the trailer hitch wire harness and make sure that it is not shorting out on anything metal due to poor installation. If that is the case, repair short and replace rear park lamp fuse(s). Hope this helps you out.

Hi, my license plate lights out along with the tail lights. I check the fuse and it's okay. The bulbs have all been replaced also.

did you check all fuse boxes? use a test lamp to test all fuses. should be 2 or sometimes 3 fuse boxes. look under dash on both sides.(may need to remove panel) or on the end of dash panel.also underhood.
if tail fuse is good and has voltage on both sides of fuse when switch is in park or head position,look for an "open" in tail lamp circuit. if no voltage at fuse check headlamp switch for taillamp output.

I have a 2004 Chevy TrailBlazer that just developed a problem with the left turn signal. The left turn signal indicator on the dash is blinking rapidly and the tail light turn signal is out. I change out...

The Trailblazers have a common problem with the printed circuit boards in the tail lamp housing.
Unplug the tail lamp housing at the wiring connector and test for power with a test light. ( With turn signals on) You may have an open circuit in the lamp housing circuit board. Good luck

Tail lamp fuse blows

the wire is obviously pinched. Try removing both tail lamps and check that the wiring did not fold and pinch when lamp installed.If recent bulb change, the wrong bulb could do it. And check the filament of the bulb for breakage and falling against post. Second most likely area of pinch is at sill plate @ door opening.
