The light bulbs are probably dual element bulbs which would mean your night lights are separate from your brake and signal lights, even if they are in the same bulb. Replace the bulbs with new ones of the exact same type.

Good day;
In your trunk area there should be a piece of carpet by your tail light just move that to the side and then you can access your bulb. Any problems please let me know.

Cheers

SOURCE: front door locks on a 99 passat

You have the wrong KEY if it won't turn any locks.
You can use the KEY fob from another Passat.
The one you have was most likey not the original
and the car was reprogrammed to except that FOB.

The Fuse panel Is inside the DRIVES side.
Open the Driver door. Look at the side of the DAShboard.
THat Giant "B" Shapped plastic cover pops off.

Check the fuses...IF any are broken,black or no good.
REplace them

Hope this helps

SOURCE: i have a 2001 vw passat. my parking lights went

disconnect the reverse gear switch located at the gearbox. It's a two pin Connector with two wires, one of them is BROWN, and th other BROWN with BLUE stripe along. Make a short connection between those two wires, easiest way is to do it by usin simple paper clip. Turn the ignition IGN to ON position. and check the reverse lights. If Lights are on, than you need to replace the switch that you just disconnected as it's faulty.

Update me about your progress and we'll solve this easily.

Good luck

95' Buick regal, 3rd brake light works, tail lights work, turn signals work, stoplight switch seems to work ie 3rd brake light working, fuse is ok, changed bulbs, but no rear brake lights.


If the third brake light works and the regular ones don't, it is most likely a bad turn signal (multifunction) switch. The switch is able to kill the brakes lights to run the turn signals, and in rare circumstances does this. I've seen it several times. It could also be wiring, especially near the turn signal switch, but it is usually the switch.

How to fix a tail light problem for a 1999 vw passat, brakes light, signal lights and stop lights work perfectly


The brake pedal whenever pressed open the circuit to complete the circuit which turns on the brake lights. Its like if the brake pedal is not depressed the circuit is bypassing the light. So when this short-cut is opened current has to go via the tail; bulbs making them glow..........sodeep

No brake lights, turn signals, or 4-ways.


Did you actually check the bulbs? I believe your brake lights, signal lights, hazards all use the same bulb for each side.

Your brake lights may be your brake switch just above your brake pedal.
The signals could be your electronic flasher module (EFM) located under the dash near the steering column.
Your hazards may be affected by the EFM, but not likely and the switch for your hazards may be faulty

REAR TURN SIGNALS WORK BUT MY BRAKE LIGHTS DONT


Replace the turn signal switch. If you want to prove this have someone stand behind the car with your foot on the brake. Then wiggle the turn signal lever. The brake lights should blink. This is a real common problem with W body. I have replaced two on my cutlass plus tons more at my shop.

Fuse for turn signal


I ACTUALLY HAD MY FRIEND TAKE A LOOK AT THE PLASTIC PART WHERE THE FRONT TURN SIGNAL LIGHT CONNECTS... HE ADVISED ME THAT THERE IS A BAD CONNECT AND THAT ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS CLEAN THE METAL AROUND THE PRONGS ON THE BLACK PART OF THE ACTUAL LIGHT BULB THAT YOU PLUG IN ... YOU ALSO NEED TO PUSH THE LITTLE METAL PRONGS INSIDE OF THE WHITE SOCKET BACK UP SO THAT THEY CREATE A TIGHTER/SNUG FIT FOR THE BLUB WHEN PLUGGED BACK IN.... I HAVEN'T HAD ANY ISSUES SINCE HE FIXED THIS FOR ME ... AND MY 2 FRONT SIGNALS BEFORE THIS HADN'T WORKED FOR ALMOST A YEAR....
