2006 Ford Ranger. Rear passenger side tail light

2006 Ford Ranger. Rear passenger side tail light functions, yet won't indicate braking or turn signal. Driver side tail light works just fine. I replaced the bulb and checked the fuses. Really confused here since the bulb itself works, it just won't brighten to indicate braking or function as a turn signal.

    The tails do not work when the lights are on, however, the brake lights function properly.

With a test light check if you have power there with lights on and with lights off, compare left side with right side as far as location in the tail lamp plug for the tail lamp park lights.Trace the harness back to the left side underneath usual corrosion in this area.

You have a bad connection at the rear passenger side turn signal. It is either the connection is corroded or a wire is loose on the ground side of the circuit.

EF Civic Brake light turns off during braking w/lights on


The characteristic you described is almost always a ground connection that is not secure.

Check with an ohm meter the resistance between the ground at the light socket and the chassis of the car. Any resistance is an indication of a poor ground connection. Temporarily connect the return(ground) connection at the socket to the chassis using a jumper.

If all is correct with jumper in place determine poor connection location and repair.

Hope this helps?

Turn signal and brake light problem


Had the exact problem on my 98 ranger 2wd reg cab stepside with the 2.5l 4 banger. Anytime I pressed the brake my passenger side turn signal would light up solid on the dash and the lights outside. I pulled both rear lights and both headlights and turn signals to check for corrosion/loose wires. Nothing. I checked and cleaned all my grounds and fuses. Nothing. Not until I followed my rear taillights wire harness did I find the problem. The two taillights are connected to each other via wire harness. My truck had the harness split with an adapter for trailer brakes. This harness was the problem. It is located under the rear bumper by the spare tire. Simply disconnect two harness plugs going into each side and remove it. Then connect the two plugs to each other. Problem solved.

Tail light Assembly - How to install.


the ford ranger bulb housing is pretty weird and hard but you have to turd the bulb and housing all the way to one direction then press agianst the back of the tail light with the bulb and housing in and slowly turn and it should eventually work for you,it took me a while, its one of those things that you spend hours on and then it randomly decideds to work.
