Use a tester to see if you are getting power to the light itself. If you aren't getting power, trace the problem backwards to the fuse box. Any number of things could be wrong from bad wires, bad ground, broken wire, bad fuse, bad light switch etc.

SOURCE: 2001 dodge neon tail lights inop

looking at your schematics and , you say tail lights don't work , you didn't mention if front parking lights and license plate lights are working , they all come from the same source , a black /yellow wire , a good clue if front work and rear don't , please advise .if fronts work then you have a open circuit somewhere between junction S118 (near breakout for left headlamp) and rear sockets.

SOURCE: cant find fuse # for brake lights, I dont have manual

Here's a quick easy way to find blown fuses: Open your fuse box and look carefully at the tops of all the blade type fuses and you'll see a little piece of metal sticking up through the plastic on both sides of each fuse. Turn your key on and connect a test light to the negative battery terminal. Now touch the probe side of the test light to both pieces of metal on each fuse. If it lights up on both sides, the fuse is good. If it lights up only on one side, the fuse is blown. If it doesn't light up at all you either aren't making good contact or the circuit isn't powered up. Some circuits only power up under certain circumstances and you probably don't need to worry about it.

Break light not working on a 1998 plymouth grand voyager expresso


If you are saying the brake light and parking light on one side is dead, the problem would be in the socket or the ground connection.
There would be two different circuits involved. And the rear parking lights are powered by the same fuse as the front.
The brake lights are on one fuse too.

Just had a similar problem. Brake (stop) lights and horn didn't work. Couldn't find mention of stop lights in fuse chart. Found horn fuse to be slot 21 in the engine fuse block (not the fuse block in car interior). Replaced 15A fuse and all now ok.

Brake light dont work


check the fuse for the brake lights. The brake lights and siganl lights use the same bulb filament. The parking and running lights use a dimmer filament in the bulb. There are 2 filaments.
Your brake lights work through the multifunction switch which operates the signal lights. If the signal lights work, you may have a bad brake lamp switch which is on your brake pedal arm.
Let us know what you find.

Look for broken wires or with a test light. follow the wires checking from the fuse box back to the brake lights checking every so often in between the light wires and the fuse box.
