Tail lights not working fuse is good bulbs are good. What do I need to check now. 2008 Pontiac G6


What fuse is good ? Did you check fuse in rear fuse box ? Also did you check park lamp relay .
Park, Tail and Marker Lamps
The park, tail, and marker lamps, including the license lamps, are turned ON when the headlamp switch is placed in the PARK or HEADLAMP position, or anytime the headlights are requested. The PARK LAMPS fuse in the rear fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to the PARK LAMP relay switch contacts. The PARK LAMPS fuse in the rear fuse block also supplies battery positive voltage to the PARK LAMP relay coil. When the park lamps are turned ON, the body control module (BCM) energizes the park lamp relay. Current flow is from the PARK LAMP relay to their respective park and marker lamps and to ground. Ground is provided at G101, G102, G401, and G403.

2000. Where is fuse for tail lights?


Do your headlamps work ?
Park/Marker/License/Tail Lamps
Voltage is applied to the turn/headlamp switch at all times. When the turn/headlamp switch is in the PARK or the HEAD position, voltage is applied to the following components:
?€¢
The park lamps


?€¢
The marker lamps


?€¢
The tail lamps


?€¢
The license lamp

The front marker lamps are grounded through the turn filament of the respective front park/turn lamp. The front marker lamps light as a result.
The automatic lamp control function turns on the park lamps and the headlamps. This action occurs when the ambient light sensor determines that the exterior lamps should be turned ON based on the amount of available light. When the BCM grounds the park lamp relay, voltage is supplied directly to the park lamps, bypassing the turn/headlamp switch assembly. When this action occurs, the following conditions exist:
?€¢
The automatic lamp control relay is grounded.


?€¢
The headlamps turn ON. Refer to Headlights/Daytime Running Lights (DRL) Circuit Description .

The lamps turn OFF when the BCM does not ground the park lamp relay or the automatic lamp control relay. This action is caused by the following conditions:
?€¢
The available light reaches a predetermined level.


?€¢
The ignition switch is turned to the OFF position

The instrument panel cluster,tail (driving) lamps,& license plate lite do not lite. fuses 9,14,20 are ok. what else could be bad or broke?


Check fuse's #19 ,# 6 #4 check grounds 105 & 107
G107 In the left rear of the engine block next to the knock sensor. G105 In the thermostat housing
The park, tail, marker and license lamps are turned on when the headlamp switch is placed in the PARK or ON position or anytime the headlights are requested. The PK LPS fuse in the IP fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to the park lamp relay and the headlamp switch. The body control module (BCM) provides a ground, or control circuit, to the park lamp relay coil circuit during ALC operation. When the park lamps are turned on during ALC, the BCM energizes the park lamp relay. The park lamps can also be supplied battery positive voltage directly from the headlamp switch. Current flow is to the park, tail, marker and license lamps. The front park and marker lamps are grounded at G100 and G101. The rear park, tail, marker and license lamps are grounded at G400 and G401. If the headlight switch is left in the ON position, the park, tail and marker lamps will remain on until turned off or the battery runs dead.
Check the headlamp switch !

Headlight switch relays


Headlight switch probably the problem. One circuit is shutting off when the other turns on. If it was a fuse or relay, it would just turn off...

Taillights will not work


Unplug the connector going to your tail lights. Check for voltage and ground to the connector. If you do not have voltage, check the fuse (locations can be found in your owners manual). If the fuse blown, check to make sure the wiring harness is not rubbing through a the hinge on your trunk ( a common problem). If the fuse is good, suspect a faulty headlamp switch. The headlamp switch supplies seperate system voltages to the headlamps, front marker lights, and tail lamps. One system can fail without affecting the others if the headlamp switch is bad.

Cant this DRL module cause the headlights and day light running lamps to quit working. For a brief period, I could use daylight running lamps sometimes in place of my headlights when they quit working. Now...


Do you have tail ligts and side marker lights with drls on? if so you will have only dim headlights. Check fuses, I think the headlights are fused seperately.
