Ground wire for the tail light bulb is faulty ,broken or not connected and is grounding out through the circuits for the other lights

Testimonial: "Would that be inside the splitter? The broken ground wouldn't affect the turn and brake light still working?"

    Would that be inside the splitter?

    start at the tail light bulb holder and follow the wire back
    if it is good to the splitter , replace the splitter or continue following it back to the ground point

The bulb has two filaments; one for brakes and turn signal, the other for tail lights. One filament is probably burned out. Replace the bulb with a new one

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.

Left rear turn signal on dodge ram 1500 won't work. bulb replacement didn't help.


Just had a similar question last week, and the solution was a bad socket/bulb holder.
You might try and see if there is current in the brake light wire leading to the bulb holder.
I have used a jumper wire and a safety pin to test the wire behind the socket.
I pierced the plastic insulation of the brake light wire with the point of the safety pin, and either use a tester or even a good working bulb and a good ground wire.
Be blessed.

Have a 2003 Chevrolet silverado, right rear tail light does not burn when lights are on, this light will burn when brake is applied or when turn signal is used. What is the problem and how can it be fixed?


There are 2 filiments in the light bulb. One is for running lights and the other is for brake and turn signal lights. Simply replace the bulb and you should be ok.

Right blinker and brake light wont work. Fuse is okay. How do I rewire it or ??? I am a single female with limited funds but enough know how ability to fix it with guidence


If it's your right rear blinker that's out and your right rear brake light that's out. Odds are the bulb has burned out. I believe you require a 3157 bulb. Open the tailgate and look to the side of the tail light assembly and you should see two or three screws. Remove the screws and gently pull back on the housing and it should pop right off. twist out the bulb counter clockwise and look to see if one of the two filaments in the bulb is burnt out. I'm willing to bet it is. Put the new bulb in and reassemble. Should be about $5 for two bulbs

I would guess the brake fuse ( this does not use the same fuse as the tail lights/blinkers) or the ground for the brake light bulb.
