    Thanks Fixya and Da Saint

    The problem is fixed. I unpluged the brake panel and fiddled with the wires and it began to work. I just have to secure it a bit so it won't happen again.



    Thank you!

You've got a broken or disconnected wire somewhere. Get a multimeter & check you have voltage on both sides of the fuse. If that's good you know you've got juice running out to the tail light. Remove the bulb & check for voltage in the socket. Chances are you have 20 years of corrosion behind the socket & it's dirty. Either way, you problem is a disconnected or corroded wire.

I have 89 bronco 2 my brake lights turn signals both work my tail lights don't work have check fuse n blubs what might be the problem


The turn signals and brake lights use the same circuit and filament in the bulbs. The tail lights are on the other circuit which comes from the headlight switch.
Do you have power on the tail light fuse ?

My right tail light is not working


There are 4 bulbs back there, is it the brake light? All those bulbs are very easy to change. When you take out the holder it will actually tell you what bulb you need, readily available at any parts store.

Im looking for the fuse for the right tail light


You do not have a separate fuse for each side, if the left side works, replace the bulb in the right side that isn't working.

Jaguar xj6 break light cancels signal


Replace the turn signal switch. Bad contact inside causing a crossing of the circuits. When the turn signal is applied it should open the brake light circuit allowing for just the signal to work. Doesn't sound like the switch is doing it's job.

Right brake light out; tail light works fine


most rear tail lights and turn/stop lights are the same dual filiment bulb. it is possible for your tail light to work and your brake light not to and still have a bad bulb. I would check the bulb first, your brake light works on the left yes? this would mean that the fuse is fine

No instrument panel, tail or side lights


If the fuses are OK maybe there's a cut off between wires from fuses going to your load (panel lights, side lights); or try to check your power relay.
