Question about 2007 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LTZ Hatchback
Car has been at the dealer for 2 days now. I have break lights and my tail lights wont work. they cant figure the problem out
Should be under warranty...also Dealer should definitely provide courtesy loaner...contact the regional rep as necessary...could be serious future electrical problems...In rare cases, the wrong bulbs could be installed...one way tips...instead of dual (twin bulb tips) I have seen this before...replace both bulbs with the correct ones...Hope this helps.

On chevy .
Your problem is Mising ground. or poor groumd to the Tail lights.
First Check all the grounds on the engine compartment.
Near the BATTERY and the fenders wall.
If you found any one damaged Reapair as need.
But if everything is OK...
Check the connections of the Tail lights Under the BED of the truck.
If you found evrything good.
REmove Any of the Tail lights. APPLY GROUND at the BLACK wire of the Tail light connector and see if make any different. If the lights work ok. you can LEAVE with the Ground.
Or try to find where is the wire cut. or in missconntact.
OK... I hope this help to try resolve your problem.
Thank you for use fixya...

sounds like ground problem- remove tail lights and look for wires going to body -remove screww clean grounding area and replace- both sides. You did not say whether the lights work when car is off? With car off and brake pedal pushed is there any brake lights ? If not procede with above.

Just to be sure, check out the bulbs and sockets.
Make sure the two dots sockets (look into the base) is using two dot bulbs.
Check the single brake switch that activate by the brake.
If you has a meter then please check out the contact points.
Sometime this switch move out of aligment.
Dirt can also be part of the problem.
===== I will apply 12V power to the brake switch socket and make sure the blubs light to rule out wire problem first.
Please post more infor on the comment window.
