Replace your resistor if you haven't already. I had the same issue with mine, it only worked on high.

Please try this steps:

  • First make sure the socket connector from the light is connected properly.
  • Secondly, make sure the wires from the socket is fixed and not loose.

Tail lights not working

Not for tail lights.
GeT a 12 Volt probe screwdriver with the handle that lights up or volt meter. Remove the bulb turn on tail lights clip to any good ground and put the probe tip on the bump at the bottom of the socket and it should lite up. Now clip ground to side wall of socket and probe both bumps in the center one bump is tail the other is brake. Have someone push on brakes and see if they light when on one bump then check tail on other bump. DO NOT TOUCH THE SIDE WITH CENTER PROB OR IT WILL SHORT BE CAREFUL. this will tell you where the problem is,

Also check fuse holder.
leave fuse in clip to ground turn on tail light and probe both ends of fuse for power.

Hope this helps Mike

How do I fix my electrical problem.My taillights and brakelights are not working All other lights are working.Fuses seem to be working alright.

Troubleshoot your lights
Fixing lights can be difficult:

You have a tail or brake light that doesn't work, but you replaced the bulb and no change. You'll have to troubleshoot, so buy a simple volt/ohm meter.

Be sure the power is off and no power on any of the socket pins. Then clean the light socket and connection pins with a stiff brush or steel wool.

First, measure all the light socket pins for power. If you don't see any voltage, must be a fuse out or a broken wire or you aren't getting a good solid ground reference.
Turn power off and make sure the socket ground is really ground by using the ohmmeter between the socket ground and a known good ground. If the ohmmeter reading is 1 or 2 ohms the socket is probably good. If the ohmmeter measures higher, then the ground connection is bad or ground wire is broken. Try to trace the ground wire, run your own wire if you have to.
Once the the socket ground measures ok, then you have to determine which hot pin is bad.
There are two hot pins, one for each filament, tail and stop light.
Pick one and measure the voltage referenced to the, now good, socket ground.
You should have power now, so try a bulb in the socket.

Im looking for the fuse for the right tail light

You do not have a separate fuse for each side, if the left side works, replace the bulb in the right side that isn't working.

We have a 2000 jeep grand cherokee laredo. We have changed bulbs, replaced a socket, and the drivers side tail light dosen't work. The brake light, turn signal, and back up lights do. Only the left tail...

Check the fuses as well as the wiring near the tail light.

If all seems good, get a cheap multimeter and check the voltage in the wires that go to the tail light (red probe on one wire and black probe on the other). If you get a reading about 12 Volts (or -12 depending on which wires the black and red are on) the problem is the tail light or bulb itself.

The tail light assy is a 3 bulb on a 1996 mustang coupe. Only one light bulb is illuminating in each assy. There appear to be at 2 additional bulbs per assy that are not illuminating. In addition the...

This is the only diagram I could find for tail-lamps. The top wires are voltage, the bottom wire is ground. The brown color wire is voltage for tail lamps. The other color wire is turn or stop, depending. The turn and lower brake lites use the same bulb filament, just not at the same time. The lower brake lites are wired through turn signal switch. I don't know if diagram matches what you have? I looked at several, all showed the same thing.
