    There is also a ground wire on your rear light pods which is separate from the light bar in the rear window. Make sure your grounds are good before you go further.

Are you sure the bulb is good?? my '99 SL1 had the same problem, neither lower brake light would come on but the tail lights worked just fine. And it's the same bulb. I thought that since the tail light lit up, the bulb must be good...

Wrong.

When I actually took one bulb out, i could see that it had two filaments. One was broken, the other good. so i replaced it and the new bulb worked. Replaced the one on the other side as well and have no more problem.

Rear brakelights dont come on fuses and bulbs are fine rear window brake light works


If the high level brake light works, then the brake light circuit is fully functional.

Brake light bulbs may LOOK fine, but can still have failed. Often folks don't notice that one bulb has failed until the second one has blown; it's then easy to incorrectly assume that the fault is more complex.

Try replacing the brake light bulbs: if that doesn't work then please report back for additional options.

Check the rear bulbs,and see if they are burned out,check to see if a double element bulb is in the socket,not a single element bulb.

Left rear brake light stopped working but bulb and fuses are OK.


These are Dual Function Bulbs. They control the Parking Lights and the Brake Lights. This Bulb is Burnt out on the Brake Coil inside the Bulb. I have actually seen Bulbs that were Bad But you could not Tell by jast looking at them. It should be fine with a New Bulb. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

i was having a similar problem with my 2000 SL. when the taillights would go, so would the cruise control. and through many bulb and fuse replacements, i finally went into a saturn dealership and they did a recall campaign on it. they did their thing and i havnt had any problems since. FREE!
