This sounds like you have the wrong bulbs installed in your tail lights. I'd go to the local auto store and have them look up the proper bulbs ( there are likely two on each side) and ensure you have them installed properly, and they are the right bulbs

SOURCE: Dashboard lights and tail lights don't work

Check the TAILGHT FUSE. GM's unusual way of letting you know there is something wrong. Otherwise how often do you check your tailight operation. Only by another driver telling you, your tailights aren't working, would you know. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a 02 dodge ram 1500 and the brake lights dont work

I've seen this more than once. Do you have a towing hitch? Sounds like you got a wiring problem with a trailer harness. If you do have a harness then check all the wires to be sure none rubbed through.

1999 Sable wagon - the dash and rear lights don't work. Brake lights and headlights are fine. Any ideas?


This can happen when the wires to the lights come loose. If you know someone who can get in the back and check the wiring, and can hook them back up, that's probably all it is. Sometimes items in the trunk, or the back of an SUV, or just hard road bumps can shake the connections loose.

Epc light on dash and brake lights not working


I doubt it's the fuse. A very common problem is the brake switch on your brake pedal goes bad. This causes the EPC light and no brake lights. This switch was recalled by VW in 2007. Here is the story from USA Today

The EPC In my 02 bug is on and it wont shift out of park. whats going on?


Hello glitzandg252...This has been a problem for many VW owners.
Brake Light Switch Malfunction is the cause of it. In fact VW has issued a recall for the defective brake switch here's the info:

Recall 04V096000: Brake Light Switch Malfunction

DEFECT: The brake light switch on these vehicles may malfunction. If this happens, the brake lights could become inoperative, or come on and stay on, even though the vehicle is parked.

REMEDY: Dealers will replace these switches. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during April 2004. Owners may contact Volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987.

Give them a call and see if your vehicle is included in the recall, you will need the VIN number.

In the mean time ...|VW Roadside Assistance has a technique that will get you by until you can get repairs done.... Here's the technique:

1. Turn off the ignition.
2. Press the brake pedal 5 times, and on the 5th, keep your foot on the brake and start the car.
3. Let it run 5 seconds, and turn it off.
4. With your foot still on the brake, turn the ignition key 1/4 forward
5. Shift to a position between N & D
6. Now start the car. Shift to D. It what you really want to do is back out, shift from D to R.

Good luck...i hope this helps. Please take time to rate my response a FIXYA...
