SOURCE: 1991 volvo tail lights

Could you take out a bulb and with a testlight/probe check that you do in fact have power to that circuit .Also check that they are the correct bulb for that application I have seen people put indicator bulbs in where therse supposed to be a double filament bulb.Does the base of the bulbs lead contacts line up with the two steel terminals inside the plug?

SOURCE: Left rear brake light stopped working but bulb and fuses are OK.

These are Dual Function Bulbs. They control the Parking Lights and the Brake Lights. This Bulb is Burnt out on the Brake Coil inside the Bulb. I have actually seen Bulbs that were Bad But you could not Tell by jast looking at them. It should be fine with a New Bulb. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

SOURCE: Tail lights don't work on 1998 Chevy Silverado.

check the wiring from the tailights back to the fuse panel, it sounds like an open connection. if i recall correctly check under the dash on the drivers side near the fuse panel for a bunch of wires in a bundle and look carefully for a wire or two that are cut/shorted/or seperated, you can also check under the drivers side kick panel by the hood release.

Where is fuse located for tail lights on 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee

the operators guide tells you were all fuses are
did you lose that?
no engine size stated, only 2002, and no country stated..
these cars run different engines in all countries, so...???
and have wiring to match them. gas and diesel.
so tail. not brakes, no reverse but park lamps are out in the REAR Left and right and park is NOT dead
on the sides, nor on the front, park is the 1st click of the head lamps switch and park lamps even feed many interiour lamps.
even the speedo cluster back lamps are park.(with dim)
Ive answered vast park fails here, even showed you the free manual. and now repeat that once again..

answsing for USA car
and is a WJ jeep, the book is WJ.
answering for, only REAL parks dead, x4. (2 license plate lamp glow to, do they fail too?)
fuse 6 runs the park relay,
when you turn the switch the switch (digital it is) tells the BCM bain, (body puter) to turn on the park relay, the relay closes
and passes, fuse 6 power to the rear of the car
so we check fuse 6 first. then scan car make sure the car
fuse 6 is located in the JB, (means cab box)

it also runs the front lamps and all side makers.
so just how many parks are dead, seems your post is not clear at all, there are like 20 total lamps + on this feed.
now my wild and useless blind answer.
fuse blown F6 and all parks dead front rear side.
then relay park is bad.
then scan PCM, it tells you related errors now.
post them.

Passenger side driving lights not working on 2001 saab 9-3

Are you sure the bulbs are ok.Visually it's hard to tell. all the time if they are bad. Be sure and check them with a meter and if they check out ok then you need to check for voltage with the key in the on position and lights on.going to the rear light assembly itself. Usually if its just one side not working it's a bad bulb. But that's usually not always. Good luck.

Front and rear light not working

Year,make and model i need but try checking the fuses for park lights, it sounds like the fuse may have blown.

Also if you have a trailer hitch and have used it then also check wiring on trailer but if this is not a truck or does not have a hitch then do not worry about checking trailer, just check fuses to car or truck for park lights. good day

03 chevy venture rt.front parking light&turn light don't work replace bulb&socket

The rapid flashing occurs because of the light problem. If the 20A PARK LP fuse in the underhood fuse block is OK, the front marker lamps and the park lights should turn on when you set the headlamp switch to PARK. If the 10A T/SIG fuse in the instrument panel fuse block is OK, and the ignition switch is on, moving the turn signal multi-function switch to signal a right or left turn should cause the turn signals to flash. If this doesn't happen, check for a missing ground connection to the socket you replaced and check to be sure the replacement lamp was not forced into the socket backwards (it happens).

Blew the rear parking lights. Front parking

If they are both gone, you either have a bad ground wire or broken wire. See if you have power back there. The bulbs could be both burnt out.
