If more than one light on the same side do not work, check grounds in the rear, most of the time the left and right sides use different grounding points. As for the Body control module, i doubt the problem is there, as there would probably more than just that going wrong if it was faulty. The BCM (body control module) is usually located under front seats, or hidden in the dash somewhere. I would like to be more precise on location, but we don't have ford galaxys in my country. Well... not any 2007 galaxys anyway, only 1970s and older. :P

Testimonial: "Thanks for quick response - from looking I think all the lights in the cluster use a common ground and the others (reverse and fog) work okay - off to shop to buy a meter to see if getting power to tail lights when switched on"

You will need to start tracing the wiring. I have found "green" wiring in these vehicles for many electrical problems. Start at the front and work your way back.

Nope 1 fuse controls all the windows. Either its the switch or the window regulators themselves or due to the age the wiring.

2011 Ford Escape driver side tail light not working correctly - lights are on but turn signal flash not working and neither is the brighter brake light


I would guess that you need a new bulb. Many of these tail lights actually have two filaments inside them, one that is used for a dimmer light (running light) and one that is used for a brighter light like (brake light, turn signal). The easiest thing to try (and probably the cheapest) would be to buy a replacement bulb and change it. Most places that sell automotive light bulbs will have a large catalog where you look up the make model and year of the car you need a light for and it will tell you which replacement bulb you will need. Then look in your cars manual to see how you access and replace the bulb.

I would like a diagram of the 740 gle 1990 tail light wiring, I cannot seem to get them working correctly


You don't really need a diagram, it's simple. If you open both tail light boxes in the trunk you will see at the connector on the bottom a yellow wire in the first position. That goes to the brake bulb. If both tail lights do not work, make sure you are getting power to the driver side light first, if it is not getting power, the passenger side will not work either, they are in line with each other. If it is only the passenger side not working, the bridging wire could be bad.. try jumping it. Also, make sure you are getting power inside the tail light bulb holder. The metal connections can come loose. If there is no power to the driver side tail light it could be the bulb failure relay, that is the round red relay in the rear left side of the fuse box behind the ash tray/ cigarette lighter below the radio in front of the shifter. You should be getting power to the third brake light in the rear window...that is a different circuit and will not be affected. Try changing out the bulb failure relay, it supplies the power to the tail lights.

99 mercury mystide had rear running light broken


If the driver's side tail light is working, it's not a fuse. Use a test light to check for power at the bulb holder. One terminal will be for tail light, the other for brake/turn light. If the is constant power for tail light, replace bulb. If no power, trace wiring from bulb holder to driver's side junction. Probable broken wire between the two tail lights.

Mazda 3 tail light on, brake light not on


The bulb actually has two seperate elements in it.
That is why the tail light works fine.

If you take the bulb out you will see the seperate elements.
Change the bulb and it should be fine.
