Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I replaced my tail lights and parking lights with diode dynamics led 1 year ago. Today the right side is blinking rapidly. All bulbs are in good working condition. Could it be a resistor?

SOURCE: right brake light does not work when running lights are on

sometimes a bad ground can cause this. when the other lights are not being used the brake light can backfeed through another bulb to get a ground.

SOURCE: 2004 Tiburon - tail light problem. Left side tail

did you check if power was reaching the socket? you will need a test light to check, I would by one, it will come in handy for years. see if power is at the socket, if so there is a bad ground, you need to verify that to not waste a lot of time guessing, if the turn signals work OK the ground is probably good and there well may be a problem but check power in the socket first.

SOURCE: 2006 Cobalt rear driver side blinker doesn't blink

More than likely its the bulb, the bulb has two filements, one for brake and one for turn signal, If you take it out and hold it up to a light, i bet youll find with a close look one filiment is broken!

There is a harness that you unplugged for the rear tail lamp. Make sure it is fully pressed and locked. This is always the cause on jags for tail lamp failure.

Rapid right turn signal on dash but no right rear turn ligt at all


What that rapid turn signal on the dash means is, the rear turn signal tail light is burnt out. This is how you know the bulb is bad. Replace the burnt out tail light bulb and you will be back to normal.

Signal lights, fuse box and signal light relay in 2001 Volkswagen


The bulbs on these cars can be delicate. Some get replaced every year or so-( headlights, tail and brake) and some I've never touched in 8 years (my front turn signals and marker lights)

The fast blinking occurance is normal when a turn signal bulb goes out.

The rear lights are common to blow, I keep spares in the glovebox.

Make sure you were given the correct bulb, check to see that it works and isn't defective. Also there is an empty spot in the rear bulb holder- make sure you didn't mistakenly pop a bulb in there cause' it won't work.

The front right signal light is in the right headlight housing. Open the hood and on the back of the housing there are two plastic caps. One is curved and one is rectangular- you want to take off the rectangular one.

Open the drivers door and on the side of the dash there's a cover. This is the main fuse block. Use a coin or carefully with a screwdriver pry it open. To check a fuse pull it out, noting exactly where it came from, and visually inspect it to see if it is blown.

Fuse # 2- turn signal system
Fuse #4- License plate lights
Fuse #7- back up lights
Fuse #13- brake lights
Fuse #22- parking and side marker lights, right
Fuse #23- parking and side marker lights, left

The turn signal flasher is integrated into the hazzard button in the center of the dash. If all else is good and you suspect the flasher is bad, which is a good possibility, call a VW dealer and have them run your VIN# to check for recalls. The hazzard switch for some cars around your year had a recall on em'.

LED does'nt work on tail light but conventional bulb is working


Your description indicates the replacement led bulb is either defective or not a direct replacement for the ordinary bulb, which I assume is a 2-filament stop/tail type because if you have a good ground and both supplies are present as indicated by the fact the ordinary bulb worked fine, the led should similarly work if it is good.

I suggest you check the supply voltages while the led is fitted. It might happen that some device in the lighting circuit is monitoring the amount of current or resistance of each bulb and will not provide a supply unless it "sees" the correct amount.

Brake lights and rear running lights don't work


good one, love these kinds of failures.
are you in the salt belt (wiki that)
dont buy no name lamps, (from china)
they make a bad product, cheap and poor.
also check alternator voltage 15vdc max, if more lamps can burn out.
only 3 causes, voltage, junk from china, or wild crazy vibration.
id say its not that last one, no?
we shot huge guns in the Navy and blew lamps and fuses like mad.
So, know a thing or 2.

your lamps seem to be modified
some one put in the wrong lamps. easy to do sure.
wj jeeps.
brakes, not park not reverse not blinks only brakes right
not tails , tails means PARK.

most glove box operators guides tell you what to use.
ever read it?
