1982 GMC 4x4. Left blinker works until brake is applied then brake light goes out as well.


You may have a ground problem? The ground wire is black, you could try a redundant ground, see if it helps? You could also use a test lite and check voltage at applicable lamp, with turn or brake lites on. Your lower brake lites and turn signals should use the same bulb filament, just not at the same time. If I'm correct, your lower brake lites are wired through the turn signal switch, voltage.

I changed the main relay/ fuse on my 1999 ford escort sport zx2 and I still have the same problem. My brake lights, blinkers, radio, interior lights and locks do not work. What do I do now?

At the moment, I'm talking about turn signal and brake lites.
As far as brake lites, does the high mount brake lite work? If not, did it go out at the same time as the lower brake lites? The reason I ask, while both high mount and lower brake lamps get voltage from the same fuse, but, are wired differently. Did you check the fuse and check for voltage on fuse circuit using a test lite, hot all the time. You can also check the fuse above turn signal switch, that fuse circuit goes hot with the key on. As you can see the turn and lower brake voltage is wired through that flasher. I can't rule out a problem with flasher?

Have changed bulbs and checked fuses still no lights or turn signals in rear


Did you check voltage and ground, anywhere? Any fuse circuit has to have voltage, even if the fuse is good, if no voltage on the fuse circuit, the circuit is still dead. Use a test lite to check for voltage. Any electrical circuit needs voltage and ground.You have to start testing, somewhere.

No turning signals


Turn Signal Lamps
The turn signal lamps are made up of the front park/turn signal lamps and rear turn signal lamps. The front turn signal lamps flash with the rear turn signal lamps when a turn is initiated using the turn signal/multifunction lever. The turn signals will operate only with the ignition switch in the RUN position and will not operate during hazard flasher operation.
When the ignition is turned to the RUN position, battery voltage is supplied to the TURN SIGNAL, CORN LPS Fuse. Battery voltage is then applied through the TURN SIGNAL, CORN LPS fuse circuit to the hazard warning switch. The hazard switch supplies a turn signal flasher signal to the turn signal switch. With the turn signal switch in the LH or RH position the corresponding turn signal indicator, rear turn signal, and front turn signal receive the turn signal switch signal and will flash. The front turn signals receive the turn signal switch signal from the turn signal switch via the body control module (BCM) . The front turn lamps are grounded at G101. The rear turn lamps are grounded at G301 and G302.

Interior lights not working


You mite have a DTC - diagnostic trouble code stored in the BCM - body control module , The BCM controls the interior lights ! Have you heard of a BCM ?
DTC B2615
The body control module (BCM) receives a ground signal from the door jamb, liftglass/liftgate, or courtesy lamp switches requesting courtesy/dome lamp illumination. When this occurs, the BCM directly sends a voltage through the courtesy lamp supply voltage circuit illuminating the courtesy/dome lamps.
Conditions for Setting the DTC
?€¢
When the BCM receives a courtesy lamp illumination request signal and the courtesy lamp supply voltage circuit is shorted to ground.

?€¢
When the BCM is not receiving a courtesy lamp illumination request signal and the courtesy lamp supply voltage circuit is shorted to voltage or open only to the first splice from the BCM.

?€¢
There is a loss of the rear fuse block TBC 3 battery supply voltage to the BCM for more than 1 second

Diagnostic Aids
?€¢
Perform a visual inspection for loose or poor connections at all related components. Refer to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections in Wiring Systems.

?€¢
Only an open circuit up to the first splice from the BCM will set DTC B2615.

DTC B3801
The body control module (BCM) monitors the courtesy lamp switch signal circuit in order to determine when the courtesy/dome lamps should be illuminated. When the BCM senses that the courtesy lamp switch signal circuit is grounded when the switch is activated, the BCM will directly illuminate the courtesy/dome lamps. Do you know what a scan tool is ? not a code reader !

My turn signals don't work and my interior lights don't work I check fuses please help


Is the interior light switch turned all the way off? As for the signals check for 12V at the bulb. If its there you have a bad bulb, poor connection, bad socket, or poor/open ground. If no voltage at the bulb you have an open circuit or bad signal switch, you need to do more troubleshooting of the circuit to find the problem.

2010 Dodge Journey interior lights turn on dim when in reverse, turn off when in drive. Passenger side back up light out but bulb is good. Plate lights go on dim after closing the hatch.


Check the ground for the backup light-I'll bet it shares a ground with the interior lights.When you put it in reverse,it is feeding 12v to one side of the bulb,and instead of going through the bulb to a ground,it is seeking a ground elsewhere(through the interior light).The lights are dim because it has created a series circuit,so the bulbs are running at a lower voltage.

This is the only diagram I could find for tail-lamps. The top wires are voltage, the bottom wire is ground. The brown color wire is voltage for tail lamps. The other color wire is turn or stop, depending. The turn and lower brake lites use the same bulb filament, just not at the same time. The lower brake lites are wired through turn signal switch. I don't know if diagram matches what you have? I looked at several, all showed the same thing.

Fuse or what


Your multifunction switch on the steering column controls your exterior lights. The GEM module controls the interior lights and other stuff. If bad, it would not blow fuses. WHich fuse blows?
Your Ford dealer might be familiar with this issue, so call the service dept and ask them and get a quote. It may be wiring.

  • The high beams are inoperative
  • Circuitry.
  • Multifunction switch.
  • Go To Pinpoint Test C .


--------------------------------------------------------------
Principles of Operation
Generic Electronic Module (GEM) The generic electronic module (GEM) receives inputs from the following:
  • door ajar switches
  • liftgate ajar switch (wagon)
  • liftgate glass switch (wagon)
  • headlamp switch
  • keyless entry keypad switches
  • the powertrain control module (PCM) (vehicle speed signal)
  • ignition switch
  • remote keyless entry transmitter
The GEM uses these inputs to control the output to the battery saver relay and interior lamp relay. Both relays are integral to the central junction box (CJB) and cannot be accessed directly.
Interior Lighting Systems The GEM grounds the battery saver relay and interior lamp relay coils when any door ajar switch or the headlamp switch is closed. The interior lamp relay then supplies power to the interior lamp circuit. Vehicle speed must be less than 15 kph (9 mph) for the GEM to ground the interior lamp relay. The interior lamps will remain illuminated for a period of up to 25 seconds after all doors are closed or until the ignition is switched from the OFF position, or the GEM receives a vehicle speed signal. Actuating the interior lights from the headlamp switch will operate at any time.
Illuminated Entry Illuminated entry is activated when a keyless entry keypad switch provides ground on the GEM input or when the GEM receives an unlock signal from the remote keyless entry key fob. The GEM then provides ground to the battery saver and interior lamp relay coils. Illuminated entry is deactivated when the GEM receives a lock signal from the remote keyless entry key fob or if the GEM receives ground inputs from the keyless entry keypad switch lock code. Illuminated entry will also be deactivated when the GEM receives input voltage from the ignition switch.
Battery Saver The battery saver is activated when the GEM is not receiving voltage input from the ignition switch (off position). The GEM will then provide ground to the battery saver relay coil for a maximum of 30 minutes depending on the state of the interior lamp switch inputs to the GEM. The energized battery saver relay switches voltage to the demand lamp circuit and the interior lamp relay coil. After time-out, the GEM removes ground to the battery saver relay disabling the demand lamp circuit.
Puddle Lamps The puddle lamp relay operates reverse from the battery saver relay and the interior lamp relay. The puddle lamp relay coil receives voltage when the ignition switch is in the START or RUN position, which disables the circuit to the puddle lamps.
Inspection and Verification
  1. Verify the customer concern by operating the system.
  1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage.


Visual Inspection Chart Electrical
  • Battery junction box (BJB) fuse 101 (60A)
  • Central junction box (CJB) fuse 226 (10A)
  • Bulb(s)
