If you have found the fuse holder, each fuse socket should have an imprint of what the fuse is for. look for brake/tail, or something similar. remove the flat, color-coded fuse and hold it up so you can see the internal elements. there's a little s shaped part between 2 upright flat parts that are extensions of the 'plug in' connectors that connect the fuse to the fuse holder- if you see a gap (melted section) in this s looking section, then the fuse is 'blown', and will need replacing. use the same colored fuse to replace it! if it fails again quickly, then there's probably a short in your light fixtures or wiring somewhere in the circuit!get online and check for any recalls for your year and model!
good luck!

The brakes lights don't work. can't tell which fuse to replace, manual does not explain well enough


You have a high mount brake light. Press the brake pedal. If it doesn't come on, replace the brake switch at the brake pedal. If it does come on and the tail lights don't, replace the turn signal switch.

Break lights and tail lights will not come on. Both sides. I replaced the bulb.


Brake light fuses should be in the "fuse box" under the hood.

Brake light dont work. 2006 chevy truck, 4.8L 2wd


Some of these had two fuses for brake lights. One for the top/center stop lamp and another for the rear left and right brake lights. Usually one said "stop" and the other said "brake" and one was in the underhood panel while the other was in the dash fuse panel. It's not uncommon to blow a brake light fuse [LR and RR] if you tow a trailer but some of these had seperate fuses for the trailer lights also. If you have a test light check both sides of the two fuses for power [ignition key on] while stepping on the brakes. It should at lest narrow your search a bit.

1994 Camry - Brake Lights Work, Tail Lights Wont


Well Jennifer, it sounds like you've done all the things that I'd have done. Try for a bad ground next. Do the lights in the dash cluster work? They're wired together with the tail-lights (so that you know if the rears go out). There should be a ground wire somewhere connecting the body to the engine or chassis.Look around the rear of the engine bay. Good Luck.

Tail lghts/brake lights


Isn't that mysterious? It took me a few weeks to figure it out. Look carefully under the break pedal. There is this device called a "break light switch". I hope that helps.

1991 toyota corolla tail lights


The tail lights in my sister's '90s Subaru had a similar problem, and nobody could diagnose it, so she just kept a bunch of fuses in the car. (When she replaced a fuse, it would be a while before it blew again -- days, weeks or even months).
In your case, there's a continuous short circuit somewhere. I'd start with the tail lights themselves -- remove the bulb on one side, replace the fuse, then test. If the other bulb lights and the fuse didn't blow, you know the problem is in the wiring to the bulb you removed. If the fuse DID blow, replace the bulb, remove the bulb from the other light, replace the fuse and test again. Examine the wires carefully looking for nicks or bare insulation.
If the fuse fails whichever bulb is installed (or even if no bulbs!), then the short circuit is probably at the fuse box connectors for those wires, or inside the fuse box itself.
I assume you're talking about the tail lights that turn on and off with the headlights. If you're talking about the brake lights, the test procedure is the same, but don't forget about the high-mounted center brake light, if your car has one.
