SOURCE: tail lights and brake lights not working with headlights on

We had the same problem with ours, that is a Saturn recall items. Check with your Saturn dealer to see if it is still in effect. It use to make our headlight switch get hot. I think it was a poor ground in the taillight housing, I use to wiggle the bulb plug-ins and that helped for a while, but after the recall was fixed it never did it again.

SOURCE: Park/Tail lights not working. Brake/signals are

Before going ahead and spending money on a new module, test it first. The module is located under the steering column. You'll find a Brown wire on one of the connectors (i just looked at a wire diagram). Do no disconnect anything. Back probe the brown wire, which is the power feed to your park lights. With the lights off, there should be 0 volts on you voltmeter. Turn the park lamps on, There should be 12V. If there is not 12V, disconnect the connector and try to check voltage at the pin that feeds to the brown wire, if still not 12V, replace the module. If you do get 12V, then module is ok, find where the 12v is being dropped before making it to the lamps.

What does a warning symbol showing a circle w/an x in it mean on a 99 Audi A6



  • Hi, I can help.

  • On that year Audi (A6) the only two lights that would illuminate on your dash will either be for the brake light (top image in the diagram) or a headlight or tail light is out (bottom part of the diagram. So basically have a look at your lights, one of them is out.

  • No other lights on your dash have an "X" on them when illuminated.

I replaced a new bulb for a tail light and my brake light does not work at all


  • The tail/brake light are double filament. So it is important to use the precise numbered bulb that your Jeep recommends. If it is a single filament only the brake or tail light will work depending on the bulb used.
  • It's also possible you happen to get a defective bulb.
  • If that checks out then there is a brake switch by the brake pedal that could be malfunctioning or a loose wire/connection.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I have a 1999 sunnfire,ABS light is on and no rear tail lights. Mechcanic says its a 700 dollar fix.what can I do?


You can drive without the ABS, and you will still have a functional brake system. You will NOT have the added safety of the ABS that can helps avoid skidding when the brakes are applied. It's your call (kind of like driving with seat belts but no air bags), unless your state requires functioning ABS to pass inspection. But get the tail lights working before you get rear-ended.

1999 jeep grand cherokee - brake lights and turn signals working but Right tail light out with all other lights on--HELP??? My 1999 Grand Cherokee has no parking lights in the rear. The brake lights work...


I have taken my car to many shops to solve this problem. Long story short your tail light has a bad circut and entire lamp must be replaced. (Lamp cost approximate $130.00)

Brake Light Problem


Hi,

Often brake lights and signal lights not working indicates a loose grounding of the rear electrical assembly. Other indicators would be dim and/or all the lights light up (but dimly) when engaging the breaks or activating any of the turn indicators. A way to verify this is to hardwire another/external grounding wire to any of the metal receptacles of the bulbs straight to a bare metal/chassis of the vehicle.

Of course the standard procedure of checking the fuses, the harness connectors and the wire harness themselves still apply.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
