You need to purchase the trailer wire kit that has a solid state module that will allow the lights operate correctly. It plugs right in the factory socket, no cutting of wires are needed, and it costs around 40 dollars. It is the only way to go for your vehicle.

Check that the wiring harness that goes to tail lights has a ground wire connected to a good grounding spot - not rusted or loose.

Put new after market rear bumper on my 2002 chevy Silverado 2500hd and my new license plate light has one wire and old light has 2 wire so I just connected the hot wire to new light and now my rear tail...


Check for that fuse in a fuse panel under the dash.
That second wire from the old light is a ground wire, whereas the new light's socket is case grounded if there is no ground wire for the light. If the fuse for the tail lights is good, check if the tail lights lost a ground .

2005 grand cherokee dash lights flash


I have not heard of this before and I am unfamiliar with your vehicle. In most vehicles, if your dash lights are not working your tail lights are also not working (they are on the same fuse). This means whenever your dash lights out, your tail lights are also out, which could put you in the position of getting rear ended by another vehicle or getting a ticket if a police officer see's your tail lights are out at night. It sounds like you are dealing with a loose or broken ground wire. I would start by checking all the tail light wire connections and ground wires located in the back of the vehicle. I have seen ground wires held together by a screw attached to a plastic tail light housing. When the tail light housing breaks it causes an intermittent connection (dim lights, out lights, etc.). A careful inspection of the wires, connectors, and ground wires may turn up the cause of the problem. A simple dab of molten solder, a piece of electrical tape, or a longer screw may be all you need to fix the problem.

Cannot find the fuse for the tail light.


The fuse for the tail lamps is located in the Instrument Panel Junction Block under the left side of the dash behind the lower finish panel. It is marked "TAIL" and it is a 10 Amp fuse.

HINT: If this fuse is blown, your front marker lamps and your license plate lamps will also not be working.

Please also read this article: Where's The Fuse?

If you are having a problem getting your tail lamps to work, The common problems on your vehicle is bad grounds inside the tail light housing. They tend to get loose at the rivets that hold the light socket and the ground wires to the plastic housing. I have fixed many of these by drilling out the rivet and drilling a small hole COMPLETELY through the tail lamp housing at the rivet location and installing a long, skinny bolt with a nut and lock washer to re-mount the light socket and ground wire.

Another possible cause is a failed rear lamp warning module failure. If your tail lamps are not working and the rear lamp warning light in your instrument cluster is not lit, then this could be the cause.

check the wires in the trunk for damage if none found you have to trace the wire somewhere is a bad ground that is the only explanation as to why they all quit working.there should be a ground near the tail lights at the trunk.

Need to know where fuse for trailer lights hookup is located on a 2000 ford expedition eddie b edition


The trailer light's are just connected to the wire's going to the tail light's so the tail light stop light and indacator's are using the same fuse as your car. If all the light's on the trailer are not working and the tail light's on the car are then most likely it's a bad ground connection. Only one ground wire is connected to the plug so all the light's depend on it.

Chevy S10 Tail Light issue


CHEVY S-10 TAIL LIGHTS PROBLEM RESOLVED...It seems Chevy engineered a ground shorting clip located under the left rear bumper area. It looks like a connector for trailer wiring harness, but in actuallity is a metal shorting clip which ties 5 wires together. They are all the ground wires for the tail lights. Then one single small wire runs to ground completeing the circuit. Problem is that this one wire is not tough enough to be a strain relief for the grounding plug and over time the ground wire wears, leaving intermittent lighting problems. FIX IS TO SPLICE THE GROUND WIRE INTO ONE OF THE FIVE OTHER WIRES AND USE PLASTIC TY WRAP FOR STRAIN RELIEF. This fixes no tail lights, intermittent rear signals, and other significant problems. I just got done making this same repair on a 2000 s-10 and everything works fine. Since it is the strain on the single ground wire connected to the connector that leads to failure, it is best to tie a new ground or clip the ground wire coming out of the plug and resplice it into one of the other five wires. Does not matter which one since electrically it makes no difference; they are all gound wires. BUT only one wire completes the connection and that is the problem. Really good engineering Chevy! The location is under left rear of bed in wiring harness right before the split. The connector is blue or green. Take the cover off to see the metal shorting clip. Also note the ground wire coming out of the plug/connector and runs about 8 inches to frame. If this is not hooked up you will have tail light issues.

Tail lights wont work


sounds like ground problem- remove tail lights and look for wires going to body -remove screww clean grounding area and replace- both sides. You did not say whether the lights work when car is off? With car off and brake pedal pushed is there any brake lights ? If not procede with above.
