If you have only one bulb not working, or if you have only one side of the rear lights not working, it would not be a fuse.
Fuses generally control , for example, all the rear tail lights, or all the front parking lights, etc.
Those fuses are found in the fuse holder underneath the dashboard of the vehicle.
If you have only one bulb out, either the bulb is burned out, or a socket for the bulb is defective, or the ground wire is not working.
If you have one side out, you likely have a wiring problem.
God bless your efforts.

Could be the seal around the taillight assembly is leaking water onto the bulbs. I had a similar problem and resealed the plastic lens cover and that was that.... no more burned out bulbs.

remove the screws in the tail light housing. Either there will be 4 screws on the outside holding the housing, or there will be two plastic wing nuts on the inside behind the rear liner. Oce the screws or nuts are removed, then you can gently pry off the plastic tail light lens.

SOURCE: 2002 Toyota highlander passenger brake light not working

RE: 2002 Toyota Highlander 2.4cyl. 4X4 Base Model

I am a Certified Technician and have basic knowledge with electronics in electrical wiring. I searched the web and discovered this is a common problem.

I fixed the problem and it was a simple procedure... The problem is with the reverse light socket at the side with no brake light. This socket functions as a hub to direct current to the brake bulbs.

Remove reverse light socket and re-seat bulb. Check for loose or broken prongs. Replace if necessary.

Swap the reverse socket with the other side.

2004 Toyota Highlander, have no tail-lights, all other lights work ?


With the car jacked up and on safety stands, follow the wiring harness from the taillights to the front of the car. The wire is probably pinched, burned or shorted somewhere along the way. Did you have any work done on the bottom chassis area recently? Does sound like a pinched wire.

HOW DO i REPLACE AND REINSTALL A TAIL LIGHT ASSEMBLY FOR A 09 tOYOTA HIGHLANDER?


I know the procedure for 2004 highlander. It is as follows...
  1. Open the back door to the highlander, remove the plastic compartment cover.
  2. You will expose the nuts and bolts that hold the asssembly to the car.
  3. Remove the nuts - be careful not to drop any inside the cavity.
  4. Once you have all the nuts removed, you can remove the lamps and pull the tail light assembly off.
  5. Put the new assembly on, replace nuts, and reinstall the lamps.

No tail lights working on honda 2008 CR-V


Did you install the converter, which allows you to use the separate turn signal bulbs? If not, then you did pop the fuse.
