Change light bulbs on my fiesta zetec 05 . I have a problem after replacement my tail gate light stay on have I put the right bulbs in


What lamps were you having a problem? So there is a lamp on your dash that says tail gate is open? There is usually a switch or sensor for that?
Maybe I misunderstood your problem?
If the tail gates lamps at the rear are staying on, no matter what you do, I'd have to check wiring diagrams for that lamp control.

Rear tail lights/wiring


check the light bulbs (filiments can break and touch the other filament in the bulb and backfeed other circuits) if they appear ok remove the non working bulbs and swap positions with the working bulbs and see if anything changes

I have a Mercedes E420 1997. I am having tail light issues, all the lights work turn sig., brake, back up, but no tail lights. I have changed out both rear tail lights, bulbs, and checked all of the fuses....


Check for power with a test light(not a dvom) at the tail lamp assembly. Test right at the spot where the bulb socket sits. If you have power then i would check the connection tab on the bulb socket itself for pits or corroded tabs. If you do not have power present at test point then double check the fuse chart and see if it says 'electronic' instead of having a fuse amp rating for the tail lamps. If it says electronic for any of the light circuits then it means their is no external fuse that can be replaced and the problem is most likely internal of the headlight switch. Since the headlight switch is actually a power source for the lights. I would start there at this point. Let me know what you find and if you need anything else just let me know

My right rear turnsignal has stopped working...the front still works, but flashes faster than normal, indicating a bad bulb...I've replaced both right side rear bulbs with no change...I've checked...


It's almost certainly a wiring issue. Very likely, the ground (-) connection for the tail light has severed or is not making good contact with the chassis. Look for a black wire running from the tail light housing to a screw or bolt on the chassis. You will find that the wire has either become severed, is loose, or is simply not making a good connection. A little WD-40 (penetrating oil) on the screw or bolt where the wire connects will assure that corrosion isn't the issue.

Hope that's helpful!!

Changing rear tail light bulbs The rear brake lights are not working, but the brake light on the wing is.Just recently had work done and evap. canister which is located under the right rear fender well was...


First just check the bulbs. You gain access to the bulbs from inside the trunk area, pull back any carpet in the way, the holder/socket should pop out with a quarter turn to get to the bulbs.

My 97 plymouth breeze's right rear tail light went out, I changed two bulbs. Now my right turn signal clicks at twice it's normal rate. Is it most likely Bulbs, fuse, or a pesky short.


It is most likely another faulty bulb in the turn signal circuit.
Ensure the indicator bulbs are replaced with the correct (specified) wattage rating.
Check you haven't dislodged or otherwise lost the ground connection to the rear tail light bulb sockets.

Left rear Tail lamp not working (bulb and fuse is fine)


If you have access to a simple 12 volt test light, you can remove the bulb you replaced, turn on the turn signal and park lights and see if the test light lights up. If the turn signal contact blinks the test light and the tail contact lights the test light, you know your power supply to the bulb is good.
Next you will check the ground.
Using your test light, carefully touch the tail light contact with the test light tip and touch the test light ground to the socket ground. If the ground is good the test light should light.
Let me know what you find and we will go from there.
