SOURCE: Chev Cavalier 2003 only one rear turn/brake/hazard light

I have a 2002 Chev Cavalier that had the same exact problem. I replaced the bulb harness (purchased from a chevy dealership for around $5) which was fairly easy to do. I have had zero problems with it since.

SOURCE: Right brake light out; tail light works fine

most rear tail lights and turn/stop lights are the same dual filiment bulb. it is possible for your tail light to work and your brake light not to and still have a bad bulb. I would check the bulb first, your brake light works on the left yes? this would mean that the fuse is fine

SOURCE: Brake light, reverse light and turn signal issues

Hello. The symptoms you are describing are likely due to a poor ground. Temporarily install a new ground wire by securing a piece of copper wire to the frame with a self tapping screw. Use this ground wire along with the hot wire to see if each of these lights works. If it does, trace the ground wire back to the frame, unscrew it and clean up the metal with emery cloth so you reestablish a good ground.

Left brake lights may have short in wire ( not working)

Not a short, or both brake lights would not work. I suggest you have a defective bulb socket or bad socket ground, check the ground at the socket.

No brake lights after changing rear end on 96 4 runner

Since you were just working in the general area. I would check all wiring connections underneath, and around the axle!
It's a common happening, bump a connector without realising and things happen!
Good luck

I have a 2003 Highlander. Both brake lights on the left do not turn on. When I swap the bulbs from the left with the right brake lights, the left side brake lights still do not turn on. Any suggestions on...

You have a problem in the wiring at these bulbs. Since all of them aren't working then the problem is between the bulbs and the ground: the wires that go from the bulbs to the body of the car are either no longer attached to it or the connection(the bolt that tightens them on the body) is covered in rust and that insulates it.
Find the connection bolt by following the wires, clean it with wire wool then unscrew it an clean the copper connectors from the wires and the body with fine sandpaper until the metal shines. put all back together and cover it in grease to protect it against future damage.
BTW you can't get the bulb out because the corrosion has got in there also: just force the bulb out and then clean all the bulb slots with sandpaper until they shine. Don't forget the brass blades from the bottom of the slots, the ones that make contact with the plots on the bulbs.

No brake light one side

It is likely that the bulb is just out as the left and right brake lights would be on the same circuit. Unless there is a strange wiring issue simply replacing the bulbs should correct your problem.

How to fix a brake light

all lights must be working in order for the lights to work in some's possible that you may have a bad ground wire to the light socket or the you may not be getting power to that socket, which means you have a bad wire. Check to see if you're getting power to that socket with an electrical tester first.
