2007 silverado 1500 brake lights dont work, bulbs are fine, power from the brake switch wire blue /white trace illuminates when the pedal is depressed


Check the bulb ground connection. Power may be reaching the bulbs but you need a ground to complete the circuit.

Runs then dies


Check the battery terminals and posts are shiny clean and tight. Check that the earth wire from the battery is connected to a good clean earth point and is tight. Check that the battery leads are not corroded and ready to break at a terminal

Xterra won't start when the battery has juice free of corrosion and starter is freshly installed


Check the cleanliness and tightness of the battery terminals. Loosen, twist and retighten them. Also check the cleanliness and tightness of the black earth cable where it attaches to the engine block/bodywork. A bad earth can cause the symptoms you describe.

A quick check you can do is to connect a jump cable to the battery negative terminal - the earth - and connect the other end of the cable to somewhere suitable on the engine/bodywork.

If the car starts no problem with the jumper cable - it's pointing towards a bad earth/connection somewhere on the battery earth

94 VW golf 1.8 auto speedo not working / -replaced speed sensor (under battery) -replaced cluster


Start by checking the wiring to the VSS (sensor) . Plug has 3 wires. One of the outside wires should have 12 volts when ignition on. Other outside wire should have an earth of no more than 5 ohms impedance. Centre wire should give an earth pulse when gearbox is turning. If live and earth are good, but no pulse, then sensor or its drive gear is broken. Problem is usually sensor suffering ppor earth connection. Ok to cut earth wire before sensor and atach to sutable earth point.

It has power and everything works, but there is no power to the starter. We removed the starter and checked it and it is good.


there are 3 possiable causes.1the main red high power wire.2the earth wire/netural.3the small light wire leading from the ign switch any other wires are earth/neturel.one of these wires is broken my advice is get a meter to check power is going to the starter,is the power going to the main live from the battery.is the earth/netural from the battery to the connection to starter ok .and the main suspect the small wire from the ignition switch to the starter [ok]adrian.

My brake lights do not work everything else does replace flasher unit and brake light switch checked all fuses and wiring all seem good on a 97 eclipse


If lights don't work, they either have no power, or no return earth. Therefore, remove a stoplamp globe and measure the voltage present in the globe socket. Next with a mutimeter, or battery powered light circuit, check that the globe sockets are in fact earthed to the frame.. If the earth is ok, and there is no power present, then you have a break in the wiring between the stoplamp switch and the rear of the vehicle.

Hi ihave a fiat brava 1.2 x reg in the morning the car will not start it turns over rather lazy and only 2 or 3 turns and the digital clock trip meter reset to zero.it has new battery earth wires ok...


It seems the battery loses power over night.
There seems to be some electrical componant chewing up the battery.
Try to remove one of the battery terminal wire at night and thn fix it in the morning and thn see if it will start without jumping, if it does thn the battery is being chewed up overnight.
If after removing the battery terminal at night and refitting it in the morning and it still requires jump start ,thn the battery is faulty.
Hope this helps!

Hello Mark. Have you had the battery checked. Next time it is going to be standing for a few day's disconnect the + battery lead and replace it when you are going to start it again. If the battery is drained then it's the battery that's faulty not the car.

Hi All ! My passenger side tail light doesnt work, brake does. Bulb is fine (tried on driver side) fuse seems to be ok....help!! Thanks 2006 armada le


there could be a bad earth somewhere in there causing it not to work. either that or the light socket itself could be faulty. check the contacts with a multimeter or test pen. check the wiring for any obvious signs of wear or damage and trace it back to where it joins the right side. hope that helps you out a bit
