As Glenn said, it could just be globes. Strange though how both front and rear have gone out at the same time? Could possibly be a bad connection or broken wire. I doubt if its a fuse. The fuse will protect the entire lighting system. If it blew, then none of the lights would work. try new globes first. If you have a close look at the ones you pull out, you can see the filament which sits across some holders inside the globe, if its flapping around and dangling and one end is free, you know the globe has blown.

NO. if you've checked the bulbs then suspect either a broken wire from the light switch to the right side
Next time, include year make and model for a better answer

    I would suspect a broken wire... A good wiring diagram will help you find this issue. Of did you install something or damage something recently. this might have some bearing on your issue

To add, check the ground wires to those circuits if the bulbs or sockets are in good shape

Tail lights not working fuse is good bulbs are good. What do I need to check now. 2008 Pontiac G6


What fuse is good ? Did you check fuse in rear fuse box ? Also did you check park lamp relay .
Park, Tail and Marker Lamps
The park, tail, and marker lamps, including the license lamps, are turned ON when the headlamp switch is placed in the PARK or HEADLAMP position, or anytime the headlights are requested. The PARK LAMPS fuse in the rear fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to the PARK LAMP relay switch contacts. The PARK LAMPS fuse in the rear fuse block also supplies battery positive voltage to the PARK LAMP relay coil. When the park lamps are turned ON, the body control module (BCM) energizes the park lamp relay. Current flow is from the PARK LAMP relay to their respective park and marker lamps and to ground. Ground is provided at G101, G102, G401, and G403.
Fuse Block - Rear
Left side of the rear compartment, behind the left rear wheel well

What to do right side runing light is working. Left is not 1996 voyeger van


Chexk fuses first. Some vehicles have seperate fusing for left and right lighting circuits. Which specific lights are you referring to? Daytime running lights (that would be dim headlight on only...no tail or parking light), parking lights (front and rear), fog lights? The term running light is used br people for different light s

My left side tail light doesn't work after changing the lamp. Jeep 2007 - Commander


it worked before the change out?
there are 3 things that are first. on advance electronics, cars. like this. 2007 is 1st year, of wild complexity.
  1. check fuses first. MIP fuse #8,9,10 (8 is left) check that?
  2. check action of park relay
  3. check for trailer wiring hacks (do you have factory hitch option?)
  4. and scan the PCM , do you see any park fail DTCs'
DTCs are system errors.
that is first.
next if not solved, we look in the FSM for that chapter, and the schematics, to see how its is structured. (varies by year, car)

FSM JEEP XK 2007 (book)
factory service manual.

left side rear tail (park) (tail is old name , car has many park lamps now , not just 1 or 2 tails like in the old days.
so it park and the relay of same name.
there are front parking lights too... do those all work>?

my guess, is you didnt check fuses first.
am i right?
fuse 8 is blown?
but that takes out front left park
and left side marker (park ) lamps too.
so did you look at all left park lights first>?

i bet not, if im wrong then you do have wiring errors.
or the new lamp from china is shorted inside, (common)
try one more lamp , like from GE or Philips.

Where is the trailer light fuse


The answer to this question depends on several factors such as: Whether the towbar was a factory fitted unit fitted during
pre-delivery, a genuine brand unit or an aftermarket unit & who, where & when it was fitted...
The majority of towbars & the assosiated wiring out there are simply wired in to the rear tail light circuits such as:
  • Trailer stop lights wired to vehicle stop light circuit in eighther of the rear tail lights.
  • Trailer park lights wired to vehicle park light circuit same side as the stop lights, as above.
  • Trailer number plate lights wired to vehicle park light circuit same side, as above.
  • Trailer reverse lights (if fitted) wired to vehicle reverse light circuit same side, as above.
  • Trailer left hand indicator wired to vehicle left hand indicator light circuit
  • Trailer right hand indicator wired to vehicle right hand indicator light circuit.
This means that if fitted in this manner (as the majority are) the corrosponding vehicle light fuse will affect the trailer lights unless the is an inline fuse fitted to each single circuit (which cld be blown). This is very uncommon & wld be a costly way to do it...

In some more modern cars that came from the factory (not the dealership ie. pre-delivery) with the tow bar fitted as standard equipment it is possible that there cld be a sepparate little fuse box or section in the main fuse box (the position of the fuse box/es shld be in your owners manual usually Under the bonnet, under the dash or behind font foot kick panels, & if you dont have an owners manual for your vehicle they are usually available to buy an aftermarket version or these days on the internet & often downloadable for free or @ a small charge).

All the best & I hope this is of some help...

Tail lights don't work and instrument panel won't light up on 2007 corolla


you blew a fuse. check fuses in both fuse boxes..
ahh yes, the IP cluster lamps are dad, but not the idiot warning lights
only the parking lights in the cluster are dead. right.?
and the park-tail, running lights and dash dim lights are all the same.
my guess three is a short on the TAIL fuse, the TAIL fuse blew
and took out: park-tail, running lights and dash dim lights are all the same.
it blew. most are marked tail even thought it runs side lamps and front parking lamps... TAIL is wrong, they are parking. lamps it truth.

Tail lights, instrument panel lights, and license plate lights not working. Fuse blows immediately when changed.


that line on that fuse is shorted, the fuse saved the fire.
we use an ampclamp DC ammeter to find the wire that is shorted
and the actual point of short.

the park-tail circuit (tail fuse, right) is the most complex of all.
20 lamps inside car, and many out side, it is the hardest to find of all shorts. but not with the tool
first check for damage behind all park lamps
i bet the fuse blows in park (1st click) not head lights. right?
side lamps the 4 front rear park lamps, some call it tail its not really tail now, was in 1920 ,not now. park is everywhere.
but the fuses can be marked tails, for fun .
imagine, calling the 2 front lamps tails. and are on .(my on going joke)
sidelamps,
the inside lamps are many too.
all dimmable lamps. so turn the dimmer down to zero and see if fuse blows now, NO?, bingo.

the best way to fix this is , visual inspections for collision damage or wire hacks in the cab.
then the fuse is pulled and circuit breaker inserted 15amp
(they sell em)
then we connent the ammeter to the wire (output of fues)
i push the switch and amps goes to infinity and the CB trips
if follow the cables, and find what line is shorted.

i missed one problem
on the rear or front 4 corners of the car may be twist lock blubs.
like 1157 or? these love to short. push in lamps never short.well not the lamp actual.
in not sure what lamps the 06 uses, but replace the brass based lamps. (in park tail ckt)

Right hand side tail light short circuit Fuse blows even with all three bulbs removed


you must have another bad lamp either in the front turn/parking light circuit or the left side rear tail, cause most tail light fuses feed all 4 sides
