That is a hard type of problem to diagnose. It is often a bad ground, usually caused by corrosion in the ground connector. Start tracing with a test light rather than a volt meter since volt meters draw zero current and you need a current draw to test some things.

My tag light in my 99 Ford Windstar not working even after I changed bulbs


Check the wiring to that socket. Possibly a wire broke or bad bulb socket. The license plate light is only a splice from the tail light wires, so if both or all tail lights work from the park/headlight switch, the tag light problem is right there at the rear. If you have a voltmeter or a test light, check for power to the bulb socket with the park lights on.

Voltage for the tail lamps shows to be a brown wire. Use a test light, check that wire for voltage, headlamp switch on. If voltage then check black ground wire.
A problem with grounds will cause some weird things to happen. Ground wires are black. You can use a test light to check ground, one end of testlight comes from battery voltage, the other end you touch ground, black wire, you have to penetrate the insulation. If the lite comes on, at least the ground is good enough for the test light.
At the moment, I don't care about the maker lamps. I do care about tail--stop--turn--tag lamp. In the past, I have been stopped because of no tag light.
Just my opinion.https://s9.postimg.org/af5e5kqtb/tail_lamps.jpg

99 toyota sienna right turn signal lights up when headlight are on. It dosn't flash through flasher or manually, works fine when headlight switch is off


Chances are you have a short or a bad ground in the circuit.
I would check for voltage and ground at the sockets for that side.
The parking light voltage is grounding thru the turn signal side thru the indicator lamp on the dash.

FUSE ON Z71 1996 TAHOE IS BLOWING DASH AND TAILGHTS I HAVE TRILOR


if your dash lights are not working, it could be any wire associated with the running lights. Try to find follow any wire that leads to a light that comes on with the headlights. This includes the tag lights. Check the towing lights as well.
