No tail lights and only middle and passenger brake light works on my 2001 chevy venture


The tail light assembly on this vehicle is a poor fit and moisture softer invades the bulb assembly when it rains. Remove the tail light assembly and replace any bulbs that have shorted out. You may need to replace the assembly.

How do i replace the tail light bulb


Open the trunk, and pull back the carpet behind the tail light assembly-- you should see 3 different sets of wires going into the back of the tail light assembly. Pick the one you need to replace, and give it about a quarter turn counter-clockwise, and the bulb, harness, and wire can be pulled out of the tail light. Replace the burned out bulb in the socket, and reinstall the bulb just as you removed it.
If you have difficulty getting to the wiring harnesses to dislodge them from the tail light assembly, you can remove the tail light entirely by unscrewing the black plastic wingnuts that hold the tail light assembly in place. It may take a little bit of effort to get them started, but will allow you to see what you are doing a bit better.

Tail lights do not work on a 2000 lexus rx 300 bulbs are fine, all other lights work fine


You may have a fried fuse. Look in your owners manual to find out which fuse it is in the fuse box diagram. If that is the problem make sure to use the same amperage fuse to replace the burned one with. I fried fuse is usually a sign that you have a short somewhere. But they can also fry for other reasons such as excess moisture somewhere. Sometimes they just burn from age and fatigue. It may solve it to just replace the fuse, but if there really is a short, the new fuse will fry too.

How to replace LR2 Third Brake Light


The Freelander is Land Rover's entry-level crossover SUV. Unlike other Land Rover vehicles that use a traditional "truck," body-on-frame chassis, the Freelander is built on a unibody, front-wheel drive car chassis. The Freelander is sometimes known in the U.S. as the "LR2."

1 Purchase replacement bulb P21/5W, available at most auto parts stores and at any Land Rover
dealer.

2 Turn off engine and open rear cargo door.

3 Remove the two Torx screws from the side of the tail light assembly. Carefully pull the assembly
away and unplug the electrical harness.

4 Turn the assembly over to access the bulb modules. There are three separate bulb modules; the
top module should be the brake light.

5 Rotate the bulb module counterclockwise to release it from the tail light assembly. Push the bulb
down (into the module) and turn it counterclockwise to remove it from the module.

6 Insert the new bulb into the bulb module. Carefully push the bulb down and turn it clockwise.
Reinsert the bulb module into the tail light assembly and turn it clockwise.

7 Reconnect the electrical harness to the tail light assembly. Remount the tail light assembly and
replace the Torx screws.

Change out a taillight


You want to change the tail light bulb?

The process for replacing tail light bulbs is the same in all models. If you have a burnt-out tail light bulb, you may need to replace the brake light, the reverse light or the turn signal. The procedure to replace each of the bulbs is the same.



    Instructions

    1. Open the Hummer's rear swing gate. This will expose the edge of the vehicle's tail light assembly. You'll see two small Phillips head screws that hold the tail light assembly in place. Put on your gloves.

    2. Remove the two screws from the tail light assembly. Pull the tail light out and inspect the back for two bulbs. The top bulb is the brake light and turn signal. The bottom bulb is the reverse bulb. Determine which bulb you need to replace.

    3Rotate the bulb's socket counterclockwise to disconnect it. Unplug the bulb from its socket.

    4Push the replacement bulb into its socket firmly. Insert the socket back into the tail light. Turn it clockwise to secure it in place.

    5Place the tail light into its cradle. Hold it with one hand and replace the Phillips head screws with the other.

Legacy wagon tail light replacement


The one thing youll find with subaru's is that they like to put nuts in funny places that are hard to access. There are either 3 or 4 nuts holding the tail-light assembly in place, which means youll need to take out most of the inner panels to access the others. You should not need a sealant unless the rubber seal is done for or there is water inside the car. Hope this helps

98 Lincoln TC,Cold starts fine ,runs good until warm, then shuts off. No codes,Cranks ok, have spark, PATS ok. No fuel pressure, cant hear fuel pump prime,New Fuel relay. jumped fuel pump - works. I do not hear fuel pump prime up, do not have fuel gauge, but pressing on valve in fuel rail- no pressurized fuel. Fuel regulator seems ok, not leaking / vacuum line dry as a bone. If I let it set for 15 min , it will start up again, but for a few minutes then dies out. If I let it set overnight it starts up perfectly and runs until operating temp is reached then stalls/stumbles, and shuts down. Vacuum is good while cranking, even with no start, Checked Inertia switch in trunk, it is not tripped. I have seen Ford TSB summaries' that mention issues like this , but I am not able to see to description. A point to add, the MAF sensor was cleaned, then I decided to replace it and did not make a difference. I do not have any stored codes, and the PATS is working fine, typical 2 second flash from and once key is inserted a 3 second steady light, then disappears. I have seen the TSB mentioning C103 Connector, it looks fine, I swapped out fuel pump relay with ac relay, still no difference.mention of wires around battery, do not know where to start. in dash service engine light and odometer is normal, seen other posts the say they only have lines, but mine is ok. the start of all of this , I washed engine with regular garden hose, ( not using pressure washer).also in the mean time, rear window defroster stopped working as well, can not say for same reason, but a mention.My problem started after washing engine. this is one of four Panther platform vehicles I owned with exact 4.6l w code engine, which I rinced down before. The only sensor I can think of is Oil pressure , or a corroded wire
