    Ok, Where is this circuit board? I assume you are Not talking about the actual connector plug the Bulb plugs into because i have replaced that portion already with no change... thank you.

There could be a problem with the circuit board the bulb plugs in to. That problem was common on the Trailblazers. I believe the Aztecs use the same type circuit board.

    If you replaced the socket the bulb goes in than you do not have a circuit board. Sorry I couldn't help.

Wiring diagram running light, need wiring diagram for 2006 dodge dakota ,right tail light is out but brakeand turn signal works


With a test light check if you have power there with lights on and with lights off, compare left side with right side as far as location in the tail lamp plug for the tail lamp park lights.Trace the harness back to the left side underneath usual corrosion in this area.

No brake lights


This may sound confusing, so here goes.
Normally I would say check the turn signal switch because for decades the brake light switch power went thru the turn signal switch.
But in your case, its more complicated.
The wiring diagram looks like you have a wire from the brake switch and another from the turn signal that joins inside the right and left rear tail lamp assembly. There are also fuses in the rear fuse box including one for just the brake lights. So its possible that fuse is dead and yet the turn signals would work.
You may have to get a book with the wiring diagrams to trace the circuits.

All rear lights blink when i use turn signal.


Failed ground wire, no doubt caused by corrosion. Check under the vehicle at the rear or in the flasher bulb areas. Your main rear lighting common earth wire is the culprit. If you cannot find the corroded wire, then go to any rear bulb and attach a grounding wire from the bulb ground to the chassis. This will 'repair' the other missing ground feeds. The indicator is being grounded through the other bulbs circuits, rather than to vehicle chassis. You need to locate a circuit schematic and check the ground point locations. It could be anywhere unfortunately, so adding a new ground wire is the alternative grounding replacement method.

I have a 51 plate ford focus estate,the rear brake lights dont work although the high level one does,i`ve checked fuse and bulbs etc. any clues


If bulbs are definetly ok you can look behind trim on the left side in the boot, which covers the space between the boot floor and the window, you are looking for a green/red wire in a connector. this is the power cable which supplies both rear side mounted brake lights. You should check for voltage at this wire when pedal depressed. If no voltage you would need to trace this back to where the wire is joined in the loom as it feeds off the wire which supplies the high mounted brake light and you have stated that this works. Would still double check bulbs first though if you did'nt replace them. Hope this helps.

1997 Ford Light Duty F-250 Problem: Passenger rear brake light / signal light Brake light is intermittent. Signal works most of the time. Emer. flasher is intermittent. Center & left side work fine....


It appears that you may have an intermittent earth connection between the globe sockets and the vehicle body.
First, check how well the metal base of the globe fits into the socket. If it is a bit loose remove the globe, squeeze the sides of the metal socket with some pliers so that the globe fits snugly in the socket. If it is still not working correctly, check the earth wire that runs from the globe socket and any connectors in the wiring loom near the Light Assembly as well as where the earth wire is attached to the body. Remove, clean and re-attach securely if necessary.

Brake lights work intermittently


It sounds like a wiring fault - an earthing problem. Have a look around the lights/inside the lights themselves.. rear and front lights, brake lights, etc ...check the wires for corrosion/splitting. In particular check any black earth leads where they attach to an earthing point.

1998 chevy lumina brake lights intermittent.


This is a classic example of turn signal switch failure. On GM vehicles with a multi-function turn signal switch and combination stop/turn/tail lights (all rear lights are behind red colored lenses except for back-up lights) The brake light power is routed through the turn signal switch. This makes it possible for the right rear light to function as a stop light while the left rear turn signal flashes, and vice-versa. When the contacts fail to remain constant the brake lights, and turn signals can become intermittent. The proof that the brake light switch is functioning correctly is that the high center (cyclops) brake light functions properly. Wiring integrity is verified if you can prove that turn signals operate, but that can still be intermittent with this complaint, BUT if you use your hazard switch to turn on all the signals at once, you can verify wiring integrity. This is because the turn signal, and the brake light use the same circuit, and bulb filament in the rear lighting assembly. If any Hazard lights fail to function, check bulbs first, then retest. If all Hazrd light flash correctly and reliably, bulbs, sockets, and wiring have proven integrity, and the turn signal switch is the remaining component in the system which needs to be tested. Unfortunately, this switch requires disassembly of the steering column for service, testing or replacement. If you have never disassembled, and successfully reassembled a GM tilt steering column, I would reccommend professional assistance.

Left rear brake light will not work. Bulb is O.K. Flashers work but steeping on the brake pedal doesn't make left rear light work.


Hi,

A couple of possibilities:
  • corroded bulb socket - most brake lights are integrated with the rear park lights. The bulb socket would have 2 contacts, try checking if they are clean and reaches the mate in the end of the bulb;
  • wrong installation - the bayonet socket of most park/brake lights combo are offset, there is a right and wrong way if installing it into the bulb socket;
  • loose wire - it would be required to trace the left brake wire to where it joins with that of the right;
  • loose ground - same as above or a workaround is to wire an additional ground wire from the housing of the bulb socket to any screw that is connected to the body ground.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
