You should be able to just unscrew two screws that holds the tail light to the truck, then just twist and pull to remove the bulbs then replace with a new bulb, this should fix it. otherwise its a wiring issue

My tag light in my 99 Ford Windstar not working even after I changed bulbs


Check the wiring to that socket. Possibly a wire broke or bad bulb socket. The license plate light is only a splice from the tail light wires, so if both or all tail lights work from the park/headlight switch, the tag light problem is right there at the rear. If you have a voltmeter or a test light, check for power to the bulb socket with the park lights on.

I have a 94 Chevy C1500 and the right side brake light and blinker are not working. The tail light and reverse light work though, and the right front blinker works but it blinks twice as fast as it...


It could be a bad multifunction (turn signal) switch. The way that switch works, it is possible that it can turn on the front blinker and not the rear one. It also cancels the brake circuit so the turn signal can work with the brake pedal depressed.

However, a more likely cause would be a break in the YELLOW/BROWN wire at the rear of the truck. It is common for the connector to get corroded at the left rear frame area where the bed harness connects to the vehicle harness. If you have trailer connections spliced into the wiring harness, these connections are also prime candidates for corrosion. I would look there first. Inspect these harnesses thoroughly all the way up and into the tail light assembly.

If the wires under the back of the truck look good, then I would check for power coming out of the turn signal switch. The wire at the turn signal switch is plain YELLOW (with no brown tracer). It is Pin (M) on the turn signal switch connector. The front signal is a LIGHT BLUE wire at the turn signal switch Pin (H). If you probe these with a test lamp, they should both work the same except the yellow wire will be hot with the brake pedal depressed and the switch NOT in the left turn position. If there is no power at the switch connector, replace the switch.

I have a 1995 chevy 1500 someone stole the stereo and now i have no tail lights


Probably blew the marker light fuse due to the light wire for the stereo getting grounded out.
Try to isloate the wires ,or unplug the harness and check the fuses.

Chevy S10. When my running lights are on everything works (except turn signals), front lights, tail lights brake lights. When I turn on my headlights turn signals still dont work everything comes on fine...


Check the grounds on your wiring.
If you have a trailer harness, make sure there are no shorts, or crusty connections

Good Luck chasing the gremlins

I just replaced the chasis on my 94 chevy 1500 series had brake lights before but no rear park lights now all i have is signal lights any thoughts on this


Check ground wire at frame at rear. Brake lightsand hazards don't use this ground so they work if it fails, running lights will not.
