Get a tester and pull the bulb out of socket and test the socket where the bulb goes into. If you have power there it has to be the bulb or the socket it goes into. If no power there your switch could be bad or a broken wire. Check for a bad ground as well.

SOURCE: no tail lights or running lights

Next step, replace the Power Distribution Module. It probably has a short in it also. Why in the hell anyone would think it was a good idea to put the fuse box with two circuit boards in it(not properly sealed) is beyond me. I wonder if they would take their lap top into the shower to see if it would still work. Please make a complaint about this poorly designed product at this site. www.nhtsa.gov Chrysler should take responsibility for this problem. I think they keep their company afloat with all the modules they sell.

SOURCE: Tail lights don't work on 1998 Chevy Silverado.

check the wiring from the tailights back to the fuse panel, it sounds like an open connection. if i recall correctly check under the dash on the drivers side near the fuse panel for a bunch of wires in a bundle and look carefully for a wire or two that are cut/shorted/or seperated, you can also check under the drivers side kick panel by the hood release.

SOURCE: no tail lights

You should have a fuse panel under you dash inside. This is where the fuses are located for lights. Don't know the exact location, but you can pull each fuse to see if it is bad. This won't hurt anything. It just keeps you from hunting down a diagram of where the fuse is located.

Color of wire to parking and side marker bulbs on 2006 buick lucerne


The park, tail, license, and marker lamps are turned ON when the headlamp switch is placed in either the HEAD or PARK lamp positions, or anytime the automatic light control (ALC) turns the headlamps ON. When the headlamp switch is placed in the park lamp or headlamp positions, ground from G304 is applied through the signal circuit to the BCM indicating the park lamp request. In response to this signal, the BCM applies ground through the park lamp relay control circuit energizing the PARK LP PCB Relay. With the relay energized, battery voltage is applied through the switch side of the relay, both park lamp fuses, and the supply voltage circuits illuminating the park, tail, marker, and license lamps.

I'm needing the wiring diagram for my 2007 Chevrolet Impala LT 3.5 tail lights.


Go to http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html free wiring diagrams ! You having tail light problems ? Do you know how they work ?

They are turned on by the BCM !
Park, Tail, Marker and License Lamps
The park, tail, license, and marker lamps are turned ON when the headlamp switch is placed in either the HEAD or PARK lamp positions, or anytime the automatic light control (ALC) turns the headlamps ON. When the headlamp switch is placed in the park lamp or headlamp positions, ground from G202 is applied through the signal circuit to the BCM indicating the park lamp request. In response to this signal, the BCM applies ground through the park lamp relay control circuit energizing the PARK LP PCB Relay. With the relay energized, battery voltage is applied through the switch side of the relay, both park lamp fuses, and the supply voltage circuits illuminating the park, tail marker, and license lamps. Ground for the left front park and marker lamps is provided at G101 and the right front park and marker lamps at G100. Ground for all rear lamps is provided at G302.
Turn Signal Lamps
The LT T/SIG and RT T/SIG fuses located in the underhood fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to the body control module (BCM) for turn signal and hazard lamp operation. When the turn signal switch is place in either the LEFT or RIGHT position, ground from G202 is applied through the turn signal switch signal circuit to the BCM indicating the turn signal request. In response to this signal, the BCM applies a pulsating voltage to the front and rear turn signal lamps supply voltage circuits cycling the lamps ON and OFF. The BCM also sends a message via GMLAN to the instrument panel cluster (IPC) to cycle the turn signal indicator ON and OFF depending on the position of the turn signal switch.
Ground for the turn signal lamps is supplied as follows:
?€¢
G101 provides ground for the left front turn signal lamp


?€¢
G100 provides ground for the right front turn signal lamp


?€¢
G302 provides ground for the left and right rear turn signal lamps

No on lights tails envoy 2002


Check fuse's in the rear fuse box. LR PARK fuse #14 10A - RR PARK #17 10A - Fuse Block - Rear Beneath the left rear seat
An the park lamp relay #30 in same rear fuse box , Do you know what a BCM - body control module is ?
The body control module (BCM) provides a ground or control circuit to the park lamp relay coil circuit. When the park lamps are turned on, the BCM energizes the park lamp relay. Current flow is from the park lamp relay to the individual park lamp circuit fuses and to their respective park, tail, marker, and license lamps. The front park and marker lamps are grounded at G107 and G103. The tail lamps are grounded at G401 and G402

My 2006 grand vitara tail lights are out I checked the fuses and there good I did notice that my license plate light went out first and than my tail lights could that possibly be the problem?


USA car, non export is my answer and no trailer mods.
Not RENEGADE
no Canada DRL options, right?
are the FRONT PARKS OUT TOO????? my shoe drops.!

so putting in 1 new bulb not fix 1? easy huh>?
did you scan the PCM for errors, DTC errors>
this year has digital controls for that.
the tail lights are really parking lights and are on all 4 corners not just tail. so are they all dead.? and the cab illumination in cluster
in PARK dead?

the BCM puter, closes the park relay on your command(digital)
this feeds 2 fuses rear, 7 an 9 (for both ends of car !!!)
9right
7 left rear and license.
so if 7 and 9 are good then the relay is not closing or bad.?

so in a shop we check fuse 7 and 9 , live, with voltmeter
12vdc both sides, parks ON,
if not 12v the relay is bad or not ON.
so we scan to PCM to see if the BCM sees errors
like "lost park output"
or see CANbus comm errors.
causing the loss of the park command to BCM

BCM means body puter.

not complex but BCM most close the relay !!!
12volts across that coil, or there will be no parks.

25453770-z53v0bh0zacy3ra2sk1gfmgn-2-0.jpg BTW the word tail only works on 1920 fords, had only 1 tail light
the parking light run about 20 lamps all over car. and in front of car.
the front lamp marked tail would be ODD.
but I know what you mean.

I have a 2003 suzuki xl7 what causes the tail lights not to work when ive checked the bulbs and fuses and they are good


it can only be 3 things, blown fuse, (test them not gander)
open circuit or short circuit.
are you saying park running lights are dead, aka, TAIL.
are the park lights working up front, ? and on dash?
1st click of head light switch is park. that is dead,at all lamp inside and outside of car?
02 xl7 (usa car answers, we do, here, as it is a USA forum)

this car has a BCM, body brain.
and it runs most things, we scan it first to see if IT has issues.
called DTCs.
when you select TAIL, at switch this is a digital input to BCM
true (0v = true) signal tells BCM you want tail/ parks on.

it (BCM) then closes relay 23 (seen below) park/tail relay
if the fuse is not blown, then this relay glows the dash
Illumination lights (park dim) are yours glowing now.
yes the all that is good fuse to dash.
now out side car, lots of tail/park lamps, which dont glow, just rear?

How do i replace the PK Lamp fuse


In the instrument panel fuse block is a fuse marked PK LAMPS the fuse directly above is a 10 amp fuse ,this is the one you want to check. There is also a relay involved in making the park lights work and the Body control module .The relay is in the same fuse block as the PK LAMP fuse, marked PK LP . Not to sound like I'm talking down to you but do you know what a relay looks like ? The fuse block is Right side of the I/P, behind the access panel. Open the passenger door , at end of the Dash is a panel ,pull it off ,then you'll see fuse box .On the inside of the panel it tells what each fuse and relay is. I'm going add how the park lights work description.
The PARK LAMPS fuse in the instrument panel (I/P) fuse block applies battery positive voltage to both the coil and switch side of the PARK LAMP relay in the I/P fuse block. When the headlamp switch is placed in either the PARK or HEAD position, ground is applied from G202 to the headlamp switch. The headlamp switch then applies the ground through the park lamp switch ON signal circuit to the body control module (BCM). The BCM then applies a ground to the PARK LAMP relay enable circuit. This energizes the PARK LAMP relay, applying battery positive voltage to all the park, tail, marker and license lamps. The park, tail, marker and license lamps are also turned ON when the headlamps are commanded ON by the BCM for low light operation. Good luck !

Right side parking lights


usa car, not Renegade or export car. nor DRL lamps.

fuse, can look good but be bad.
use any ohm meter, to make sure they are good. 0 ohms good.
the car can have park-tail relay. yes, it does have a park relay
that feeds 2 fuses (#7&9) then all lamps left and right.
the BCM controls the relay. body brain.

check voltage at all 4 pins of park relay, and bingo know who is messing up,?
pins 86/87 hot 12v all the time( battery)
87a = ground 0v all times.
30 is relay output, 12v park on.
85 pin is relay coil control. 0v park, 12v not park.
if you have 0v on 85 , in park the BCM is working

there is start.
if a fuse is blown to the BCM, it will mess up
