Front headlights but no lights on the rear or indicators or brake lights 2004 renault traffic van


try to go step by step to solve the problem.First check if any fuse for lights is blown,if so replace it with new one on same capacity. Second check the rear bulbs if are okey or not renew accordingly. For brake lights even more proceed on brake lights switch which is always located under the dashboard on driver's side above the brakes pedal. even more check for the rear lights unit if are well the connectors connected .

No turn signals, 1 driver brake light bad, ABS light on. 2002/2003 CVPI


Sounds like you have 'ground' issues. Apply the brakes using a broom stick or more apropriate tool so that the brake lights are activated. Then go to the brake light that is not bright enough. using a test-light with a sharp pointed probe, poke the ground wire close to the bulb (usually a black wire) make sure the test light is attached to a grounded bolt. if the brake light gets brighter with ground added, you need a new ground wire. Splice it in to the existing wire & attach it to a bolt. Lights should work better with proper ground. (each bulb has a positive post & neg. post, don't add ground to the side with power coming through it from Battery (+)(red light on test light) - probe wires FIRST with test light to find (+) POS. Hot wire, and leave that one alone.

I need a FREE 1992 Toyota Camry taillight wiring diagram. My side rear park lights come on but my park lights that work with the brake lights don't. I changed the bulbs and tested everything. I narrowed it...


brown wire is your park LT yellow Left-turn green right-turn. Now the break light my be on it own wire it is red black is ground. but if you have a test light see if the brown wire turns on the test LT when you turn on the park LT or what wire light up when you step on the break pedal. and so on.

I'm having an unusual problem with a 1990 Geo Prizm. When I step on the brake the brake light comes on in the rear. When I turn on the lights the brake light goes out if I'm holding the brake pedal down....


Make sure you have the right bulbs in the right place...Sometimes they will fit, even though they are not right...Your brake light bulb should be a two filiment bulb...If it is one , then there goes your problem...Now if your bulbs are interchangable, go ahead an swap them around, and see what happens...Goodluck....

Rear window break light


You either have a 'single filament' bulb installed in a 'dual filament' brake lamp socket ... OR .. you have a 'dual filament' bulb short circuited internally. Check your rear brake lamp bulbs (supposed to be 'dual filament' - two contacts on their bottoms). When you step on the brake pedal, do your dash lights LIGHT UP? A 'cross circuit' exists between brake lamp circuit and parking lamps circuit.

Rear driver's side tail light goes off when break pedal applied


I had the same problem. They were on when the headlights were on, but turned off instead of brightening when I pressed the brake. I replaced the bulb and now it gets bright when I press the brake instead of turning off (like it should).

Rear tail / brake lights


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Almost always, your described concern indicates a loose ground particularly on the driver side. What is required is to check the connectors leading to the driver rear side and/or a ground wire. Often, the problem would be the ground terminal is loose or corroded leading to the body of the vehicle. A temporary workaround is to determine which is the ground in the bulb socket (always the body) and wire a jumper wire to any exposed metal part of the rear end.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
