    Replaced the bulb entirely

    then you're into checking the entire circuit for any breaks in wiring or a faulty light switch.

    One fuse in the number 8 spot is blown but even when replaced with one that isn't blown the problem isn't fixed

    Yes, I'm going to try replacing all fuses and give it a try. Need the bike running for 80+ degree weather.

Which fuse controls the tail lights on 2002 ford excursion


Although the Mitcell fuse legend does not list it as such, their wiring diagram shows the park lamp relay (which should power up the tail lamps) to be powered by fuse number 38 in the central junction box. 20 amp

All my lamp indicator lights keep flashing. blickers work. when you step on break the break lights work. but when driving no tail lights


First replace the tail light bulbs. The tail light and brake lights are different filaments in the same bulb. it is very possible for the tail lights to go out while brake lights still work. And somtimes the tail lights can blow out together.
If you change the bulbs and still dont work then look for other problems.

My tail lights dont work or break lights but when i depress the break pedle my cargo break light works...i drive a 02 GMC serrira....my hazards, turn signals, and back up lights work


It sounds like you have burnt out bulbs. All those other lights that you say work are all different bulbs. The tail light bulbs have dual filament so that they can perform the tail light and brake light function. You should change out your bulbs and that will probably solve your problem.

Tail break lights don't work. Window break light does work however. Bulbs have been replaced.


Check the brake light fuse. The high mounted brake light (third brake light) is on a different circuit than the brake lights. Hope this helps.
