SOURCE: Tail lights don"t work, brake and signals ok

Check for dash/ instrument lights. I would say there is a fuse bad and you just haven't found it yet.

Check the cable, connector or the holder, this might also be cause of fuse box problem, sometimes fuse seems to be ok but the fuse slot get ionised salts that makes a connection problem. You can swithch the wires for indicator with tail light wires to make it sure that the holders or bulbs are ok

SOURCE: The brake lights and 3rd brake stopped working.

Look above your brake pedal and you will see your brake switch up along your brake pedal arm. It will either be between the brake arm and the firewall so when you brake it pushes the switch in. Or it will be between the dash and the brake arm so when you brake it pulls the switch out. Most likely this switch needs to be replaced

You can check to make sure that the taillights have a good ground. If at all possible try using a test light or multimeter at the light. Have someone step on the brake and see if you have positive voltage to the light. If you do then it could be a faulty ground. If you don't move closer to the brake switch or even test the brake switch.

My driver side brake light went out but the tale light still works bulb is new


Hi Jimmy.

Most every circuit in a car goes through a fuse. if you look in your owners manual for the particular vehicle you drive, you should find a listing for a fuse for brake light or brake lights. The tail light being OK should not have anything to do with the brake light. They'll be different bulbs, or, at worst, different filaments in the same bulb, and on different fuses. The brake and tail lights are distinct because otherwise, if you had your tail lights on at night, no one could tell you were pressing your brakes.

If you were meaning that the bulb for the brake light in the tail cluster is good, that also will point to a blown fuse. Check there first.

Good Luck

Tail lights not working


Sounds like you may have a short within the brake light switch itself. I'm not familiar with the vehicle but this electric switch will likely be located under the dash on the brake pedal itself.

I'M HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE BREAK LIGHT NOT WORKING, HAVE CHECK THE BULBS, FUSES, RELAY SWITCH ALL SEEM TO BE OK, STILL WILL NOT WORK. THE TOP BREAK LIGHT IS OK. WHAT ELSE SHOULD I LOOK FOR? THIS...


If the top brake light is working, then the brake light switch on the brake pedal is ok and adjusted properly. GM had major problems with the circuit boards on these....check for power at the circuit boards with the brake pedal depressed.
Also,the brake/stop lamps are wired thru the Turn Signal switch which on this model is the multifunction switch...I have seen this fail many times, it's expensive and not a repair that can be made in a few minutes, takes several hours and a lot of paitence.
Did you check the fuses in the rear fuse box as well?...I suggest you call your dealer or GM direct and see if your vehicle falls under any of these recall notices---i bet it does. If the recall repairs have not been made, then they will do for you at no cost. You will need to have your VIN number ready when you call. Below is a brief description of a recall notice.

Recall Summary:ON CERTAIN SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, VIBRATION AND HEAT MAY CAUSE THE TAIL LAMP/STOP LAMP BULB TO LOOSEN IN ITS SOCKET. IF THIS OCCURS, THE BULB MAY FLICKER AND EVENTUALLY BECOME INOPERATIVE.

Consequence:AN INOPERATIVE BRAKE LAMP WILL NOT CONVEY THE DRIVER'S INTENTION OF STOPPING TO DRIVERS IN FOLLOWING VEHICLES, AND AN INOPERATIVE REAR TURN SIGNAL LAMP WILL NOT CONVEY THE DRIVER¿S INTENTION TO TURN TO DRIVERS IN FOLLOWING VEHICLES. BOTH OF THESE FAILURES CAN INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH. RemedyDEALERS WILL INSPECT THE TAIL LAMP/STOP LAMP ASSEMBLIES, AND IF NECESSARY, REPLACE THEM. THE RECALL BEGAN ON NOVEMBER 22, 2004. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT CHEVROLET AT 1-800-630-2438, OLDSMOBILE AT 1-800-630-6537, BUICK AT 1-866-608-8080, OR GMC AT 1-866-996-9463. NotesGENERAL MOTORS CORP. 04087

2003 ford expedition tail turn signal light dont work bulbs are ok


You say the rear tail turn signals are not working are the fronts working? If the fronts work and the rears don't then you have a wire issue. Check the grounds for the tail lights or check and see if a trailer wire harness was put in by splicing the wires. Also check for brake lights and see if they work should be same bulb. If the fronts do not work either check fuse 18 in the fuse box should be a 10 amp or check brake fuse 2 which is a 20 amp

Only headlights work, 91 4dr EX


ok supaxang, could this solution be as simple as replace the 2 rear bulbs? The brake light and tail light (parking light) are the same bulb, 2 filaments, one for brakes, one for tail lights. If the the tail light filament burns out, the brake light will continue to work ok. It is quite possible that both tail lights burned out, and the brake light filaments are good and still working. Replace w/ bulb #2057. Let me know if this fixes it, if not, I'll keep working on it.
