1. open tailgate. 2. remove corner floor piece by lifting. 3. remove corner side panel. pull out from tab on bottom. 4. remove two hex bolts(#10) to release light housing. they look like large allen wrenches. 5. replace bulb(s) and refasten again.

Not sure but maybe you should verify rear position lights located in the trunk.
There are two bulbs on each side, even if you replaced one of them the other one could be burned.

SOURCE: Tail break lights don't work. Window break light does work however. Bulbs have been replaced.

Check the brake light fuse. The high mounted brake light (third brake light) is on a different circuit than the brake lights. Hope this helps.

2011 Ford Escape driver side tail light not working correctly - lights are on but turn signal flash not working and neither is the brighter brake light


I would guess that you need a new bulb. Many of these tail lights actually have two filaments inside them, one that is used for a dimmer light (running light) and one that is used for a brighter light like (brake light, turn signal). The easiest thing to try (and probably the cheapest) would be to buy a replacement bulb and change it. Most places that sell automotive light bulbs will have a large catalog where you look up the make model and year of the car you need a light for and it will tell you which replacement bulb you will need. Then look in your cars manual to see how you access and replace the bulb.

Tail lights dont turn on


1. Replace your car tail light. You will need working gloves to protect your hand during the process. Of course you will also need a screwdriver, cleaning cloth, wire brush, and a good set of tail light bulbs.

2.Understand that different models of car have different set of tail light covers. Naturally, these covers will require different un-installation procedures. So, determine if you can dismount the cover from the outside or you will have to dismount it from the trunk of the car.

3.Determine how to dismount the tail light cover, carefully detach it from the car. You can use different sets of screwdrivers for this. Be careful not to break the tail lights cover. The important thing is you must be able to expose the bulb in order to extract it.

4.Remove the tail lights cover, unscrew the bulb from its socket. Sometimes you will have to press a little and twist the bulb in order to extract it from the socket.

5.Extract the bulb, bring it to your favorite auto parts and accessories store and find the exact match of your tail light bulb. Be sure to get the correct match because if you use other types of bulb, your tail lights may not work properly.

6.Reinstall the tail light bulb, clean the aluminum casing of the tail light. Wipe the socket and wiring with a dry cloth. You can use wire brush if there are corrosion around the tail light casing.

7.Put the good bulb on the socket. You might still need to apply a little pressure on the socket before you can install it fully.

8.Reinstall the tail light bulb, replace the cover of the tail lights and secure it tightly.

9.Test to make sure your new tail lights are working. Start the engine and apply the brakes. You can ask someone to see if the tail lights are really working.

What color are the switch wires for the tail lights and dimmer on a 1990ldsmobile cuttlass ceria sl


Did you locate correct fuse to those lights?
Are you sure using correct bulbs?
Are the bulbs/lights you are referring to as "tail lights" dual or single filament type?
We need to determine which lights exactly you are referring to, in order to help you troubleshoot.

All my lamp indicator lights keep flashing. blickers work. when you step on break the break lights work. but when driving no tail lights


First replace the tail light bulbs. The tail light and brake lights are different filaments in the same bulb. it is very possible for the tail lights to go out while brake lights still work. And somtimes the tail lights can blow out together.
If you change the bulbs and still dont work then look for other problems.

Right rear brake and signal light won't work. not the bulb. All other signals work and front right works.


first eliminate the possibility that you have the wrong bulb in the wrong socket. it sounds dumb but going way back to 1157 bulbs there have been two rear tail light bulbs which will fit into the same socket but are electrically different. If you have ever driven down the road following a car which had one bright and one dim tail light, or brake light, then you have seen this in action.

since you have one good tail light assembly remove the bulbs, taking great care not to mix them up and make sure the bulbs are exactly same as in the non working assembly. i mean you have to look closely at the bulb's connection points as they will look very much the same.

if the bulbs are correct then you are looking at buying a new socket, or light assembly if the whole thing is wired into the car.

Thanks for the reply. I am sorry for not giving the full info at the first instance. The bulbs are ok. In this XL7, the bulbs are common for night light and Break, when you put the break, the light...


Generally the bulbs are dual use as you stated but they have two filaments in them. Did you actually pull the bulb out and look at it? It is very possible for only one of the filaments to be burned out allowing your tail light to work without your brake light working.

Bulb failure, position light


Bulb failure, position light means you have a burned out light bulb somewhere. I had the same problem on my 2002 s60. It looked like all the lights were working but I found out that there are several bulbs in the tail lights, so even though the tail lights were working there was in fact a burned out bulb. Look at the bulbs a bit closer and you will probably find one thats bad.

The rear break rigth side is not working but the other side yes


All th tail lights are the same type. However, the push-in socket that they attach to ,if there is not a real good connection, it gets too hot and melts the bulb base and the light socket. Remove the tail light assembly with a phillips driver. 1 screw and the assembly is removed by pulling it straight back while pressing the areas where there are molded plastic clips. pull the bulb straight out and examine the area where the wires are., Both the bulb and the socket. if they appear to be melted to the plastic, they need replaced, or can be temporary made to work by using a pair of needle-nose-pliers, or tweesers to position the wire in the proper place to make contact, untill a replacement is available. Note the bulb type when you remove it, and replace with the same type...OK The bulb isn't burned out, is it??...Look at the elements in the bulb. If one is broken, the little wire element will be separated inside the bulb. It needs to be replaced Thank you...OK

Break light problem


Do you know if the brake light bulbs are working? (are the bulbs good?). (the bulbs have two parts, one for brake lights the other for running lights)
If the third brake light bulb is working the brake lights should be with good light bulbs.
