SOURCE: Taillights are not working

check for voltage in the socket. positive is the center connection. if you have no voltage there, then you may be right. Make sure that you check the wires.

SOURCE: 1998 Nissan maxima GLE taillights fuse keep blowing! bulbs are good when checking wires by light bulbs I noticed that the backup lights where hooked to the taillights is this normal!?

no
reverse lights get power from a reversing switch and hove a separate circuit
check for correct bulbs in the holders as a duel contact bulb in a single point contact holder will short and blow fuses

Why arent my 2003 honda accord taillights working


If you mean running lights (not brake lights) check fuses first, then bulbs, wiring connection in trunk, light switch. If you mean brake lights, check fuses, brake switch at brake pedal, grounds at lamps, bulbs.

Both bottom brake lights don't work


I believe the brake light on the hatch works off a different fuse then the taillight brakes. Double check to see if there is more then one fuse for brake lights. By pulling the fuse you changed and leaving it out, see if the hatch light comes on or not; this may answer at least one question if it is one of the fuses. If your running lights in those bulbs are coming on; you probably have a good ground, if not it may be a loose ground wire.

Brake lights in rear will not work


Do you have a trailer plug? Look for corrosion around taillight plug under truck in the back, PULL IT APART to see if there is any corrosion. If you find none, than take the taillight housing out and run a external wire from a clean spot on frame to the ground on housing, it could be a ground issue. Did you test light the break light switch power in power out?

Brake lights failing


Hi,

Both issues would seem to be a loose/corroded connection and most probably the grounding. The brake light is part of the taillight. Most taillights operate with dual filament bulb (3 terminal). The metal body of the bulb bottom is usually connected to the body ground. The correct procedure would be to trace the wiring harness from the taillight and determine which is the ground and verify that the contacts are clean and free of corrosion. An alternative is to add a grounding wire from said metal body of the taillight bulb and attached to any bare metal/chassis/body in the rear. The same loose ground could cause the inconsistent battery indicator.

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.

Geo Prizm brake lights


I had the same problem, what I did to fix it was as follows:
  • Removed the plastic light holders from the tail lamp.
  • On each of the three bulbs there is a ground wire that is attached to the plastic light holder via a screw. Remove these connections and clean, I used some very light sand paper.
  • Reassemble, Worked like a Charm for me, and I save a $90 charge from Firestone by doing it myself...
