Tail lights do not work. Bulbs are good. Both fuses are good(separate cicuits). What else could it be? Is there a relay involved? Could the switch be defective? thanks! Mike

All the exterior lights run threw the turn signal switch. Except the high mount brake light. If you are talking about brake lights replace the TS switch. Parking lights are a little different. If you have no parking lights front and back, TS switch. If you have front and no back, ground problem. Grounds for the back are usually on the drivers side mounted to the frame.

There is a newly adopted system that can automatically turn off your tail lamps if your transmission is in park, the left front door opened and the ignition key removed. Have someone check your tail lamps with the car running and in neutral. Use your parking brake so they do not mistake brake lites for taillights. The tail lamp relay also turns on the headlamps, interior lamps and license plate lamps at the same time. A faulty head lamp switch can sometimes cause this condition.

    You impressed me with the transmission question. But your electrical answers are not quite right. The newly adopted system has been here for years. The parking brake doesn't turn on the brake lights. There isn't a tail lamp relay. And it doesn't turn on the head lamps. You may want to stick with towing.

    Again, the operator generally does not know that, so it new to them. You are correct that the parking brake does not turn on the tail lamps but if you are idling in neutral, how likely are you to put your foot on the brake? Do you know that they are setting perfectly level and will not roll in neutral. You got a lot to learn before you can play with the big girls mister.

    And I just explained the relay and how it is not just for the tail lamps. Whatever name you choose to put on it or not, I simply answered the question. If you read many manuals, you would know that the same part may be called by many different names. Don`t confuse yourself on what separates the wanna-be`s from the pro`s. You wouldn't understand.

It could be the Brake Light Switch located underneath the brake pedal. It might need to be replaced.

    The brake light switch is for the brake lights.

How to fix my tail lights, my head lights work,brake light works and turn signals work, dash do too


Maybe a broken or lose wire. The turn signal and brake lights operate from one wire and the tail lights operate from a separate wire. It is possible that the tail light elements burned out of both bulbs. Pull the bulbs out and check them first.

Headlights and dash lights work but tail lights dont


Many newer vehicles have separate fuses/relays for separate lighting systems on their vehicles. Check your owners manual for the location of the fuse/ relay panel that controls your tail or rear lights. Presuming your bulbs are not blown, more than likely you will find a bad fuse or relay. Most fuses and relays can be purchased at auto parts retailers and some retailers can show you exactly where they are located in your specific vehicle. If the fuse, relays and bulbs are all good, but the lights still don't work...you probably have a corroded or bad connector in the wiring harness leading to the rear of the vehicle. The later senario is very rare except in instances where the vehicle has had major colision repairs. Good Luck.

Where is the tail light relay located on a 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis GS? My tail lights and parking lights do not work and I have checked all my fuses.


if it was just your brake lights i would say its the brake switch. if you have checked all light fuses next step would be checking the bulbs. if bulbs are good check continuity with a test light.

No tailights on a 2000 dodge stratus all other lights work in back replaced all bulbs still have no tail lights


there is a fuse in the fuse panel for the tail lights.check this out first as the tail lights are on a separate circuit from the other lights in the back.fuse panel is under the dash on the drivers side.there is also one under the hood.if the fuse is good its possible that there is a problem with the headlight switch on the tail light circuit side of the switch.if this is okay then its possible that there is a wiring problem from the switch to the tail lights but this rarely happens.

1994 isusu the dash lights and the rear tail


My 97 Rodeo had the same problem. No Tail lights, no. Dash lights. There is also an annoying buzzer that goes with the set telling you the lights are on, there is no key in the ignition and your door is open. (you don't notice it when it's gone but you sure notice it when it's back)
The Fuse (taillight Illum) was good, The Light relay under the hood was good and all bulbs were good.
What fixed this problem was replacing the tail light relay which is located in a panel just to the left of the brake pedal also called the kick panel.Inside there are 3 relays. I replaced the one in the middle and got everything to work.
If you need to identify the relay you can put your hand over it and then turn the lights on and off. The correct relay should click. Mine was the middle one.
Hope this helps someone because it stumped me for months.

I have a 2000 buick century back up lights aren't working, changed bulbs and notice that the license lights aren't working either. Checked the taillamp fuse it's okay. Is this the right fuse?


The back up lights may be on a separate fuse from the tail lights. The license plate light should be fused with the tail lights though. The bulbs are good on the license plate light too? Did you have the ignition switch on when you were checking the back up lights? It could be the neutral safety switch is out of adjustment or the switch is bad. Does the car start OK in both neutral and park? If so the switch adjustment is probably good, but the back-up light portion of the switch could be bad. That switch is located on top of the transmission, about right under the master cylinder for the brakes. You have to disconnect the shift cable lever from the trans to get the switch off.

No turn signals, no tail lights and fuses are good


Replace the non-working tail light bulb. Try replacing the bulbs for the turn signals. If that doesn't work, replace the relay.

I would check your Auxiliary relay box. Check the R03 relay you might need to replace it. The Auxiliary relay box is located in the engine compartment (driver side)
