1965 corvette right rear brake light not working


Want to sell it? Just run new wires to the left side. Since it works. If the plug is bad, you'll have to find one or solder the wires directly to the bulb. Then situate the bulb in the lens.

Trailer lights have two wire out of each fixture left turn goes on left side Right hand turn goes on the other side Tail lights connect how and brakes connect how?


One wire is for the brake/directional filament and the other wire is for the tail light. The fixture should be grounded when it is attached to the bracket. To test which is which (the brown wire is USUALLY the ail light) make sure the fixture is grounded and touch a hot wire to each of the wires coming from the fixture. Watch to see which wire lights up the brighter filament and this is the brake/directional light. The dimmer filament if the tail light. Brakes lights and directional lights are both the same filament. Wen the brakes are applied, both lights are activated. When a direction light is turned on, it simply flashes the brake light filament.

HEADLIGHTS WORK BLINKERS WORK NO BRAKE LIGHTS, OR TAIL LIGHTS WHAT COULD THE PROBLEM BE


Your tail light sockets should have 3 wires, I believe. One for tail lights, one for brake lights and a ground. The ground should be black. Check to make sure these grounds are clean and making good contact to bare metal on the chassis. Hope this helps.

1965 ford mustang...rear turn signals, rear emerg flashers & brake lights not working.


Are the rear bulbs OK?
Is the ground good at the rear?are the sockets good?
Are there tail lights and a license plate light?then the ground is OK.
All the things that you say do not work go through the signal light switch....it may need replacing.
First make sure the bulbs and fuses are OK and power is getting to the signal light switch and to the brake light switch.
Nice car!

Dash lights, tail lights, brake lights, not working 1965 mustang


Probably either a bad ground (broken wire, rust) or a bad headlight switch. The brake light circuit goes from the stop switch (Located up above the brake pedal) through the headlight switch, through the light bulbs to ground. The tail light circuit goes through the headlight switch, through the bulbs and to ground. The only things that are in common are the headlight switch (Is this the switch you replaced?) and ground.
Not much, but hope this helps.
Have a super day!
