Check the grounding wire to the light. Depending on the state you live in, rusted ground connections will cause this problem.

I would like a diagram of the 740 gle 1990 tail light wiring, I cannot seem to get them working correctly


You don't really need a diagram, it's simple. If you open both tail light boxes in the trunk you will see at the connector on the bottom a yellow wire in the first position. That goes to the brake bulb. If both tail lights do not work, make sure you are getting power to the driver side light first, if it is not getting power, the passenger side will not work either, they are in line with each other. If it is only the passenger side not working, the bridging wire could be bad.. try jumping it. Also, make sure you are getting power inside the tail light bulb holder. The metal connections can come loose. If there is no power to the driver side tail light it could be the bulb failure relay, that is the round red relay in the rear left side of the fuse box behind the ash tray/ cigarette lighter below the radio in front of the shifter. You should be getting power to the third brake light in the rear window...that is a different circuit and will not be affected. Try changing out the bulb failure relay, it supplies the power to the tail lights.

I recently had some front drivers side damage to my car. The head light was smashed and the wheel well pushed in far enough that it occasionally rubs against the wheel when I make right turns. I've managed...


Mr Pinske,

The rear running lights aren't on the same circuit as the headlight(s). To get the car legal for
night driving, replace the broken headlight (both need to work to drive legally at night),
and tackle the running lights as a separate project.
First thing to check on the running lights - the bulbs. Why: incandescent light bulbs that are
on at the time of an impact cannot withstand the impact and the filaments can fail, so fixing
your rear running lights may simply be a matter of replacing the two light bulbs.
If the bulbs are ok, your accident has caused a wiring fault, which you will locate
between the ignition switch and the rear running lights.
Here's the manual on how to replace the headlight:

1993 Buick Century
HEADLIGHT REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Non-European Style
See Figures 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5
  1. Remove the headlamp trim panel attaching screws.

Fig. 1: Remove the headlamp trim panel attaching screws

  1. Remove the headlamp bulb retaining screws. Do not touch the two headlamp aiming screws, (at the top and side of the retaining ring), or the headlamp aim will have to be readjusted.

  1. Using a screwdriver, remove the retaining ring screws.

Fig. 3: Using a screwdriver, remove the retaining ring screws

Fig. 4: Once the retaining ring screws are removed, the ring can be pulled away

  1. Pull the bulb and ring forward then separate them. Unplug the electrical connector from the rear of the bulb.

Fig. Fig. 5: Pull the bulb out and unplug the electrical connector
To install:

  1. Plug the new bulb into the electrical connector.
  2. Install the bulb into the retaining ring and install the ring and bulb.
  3. Install the trim panel.
Replacing the European style headlights is a slightly different procedure.

Electrical problem Cadillac


If there is no power to the sockets, changing the bulb wont correct the problem. Check all fuses. Check for current to the tailight. Check for ground to the tailight. Repair as nesessary.
Check cigarette lighter filament. It may be faulty. Check inside cigarette lighter socket. It may have a foreign material in it causing the short.

99 mercury mystide had rear running light broken


If the driver's side tail light is working, it's not a fuse. Use a test light to check for power at the bulb holder. One terminal will be for tail light, the other for brake/turn light. If the is constant power for tail light, replace bulb. If no power, trace wiring from bulb holder to driver's side junction. Probable broken wire between the two tail lights.

Do you own a test light? Check for power at wires behind socket? Clean socket good , check contact spots for bulb & clean any rusty side of the socket with emery cloth, or sandpaper, for good contact also.
