Hello. Check the wire connections going to this tail light and the ground connection where the ground wire is bolted to the frame. A weak ground is the most common reason for your problem. Disconnect the ground wire from the frame so you can sand the frame in that spot down to bare metal then reconnect the ground wire.

Also pick up an aerosol can of contact cleaner at the auto parts store and spray the contacts plus remove the bulb and spray the bulb socket. Regards, Joe

ps - please rate my answer. thank you.

Why my tail lights don't work but my brakes and turn signals still work


some bulbs have dual filaments in them. One for tail lights and the other for brake/blinker lights.
Many times one element will burn out but the other will still work.

Try replacing the bulbs.....assuming you have already checked the fuse for the brake lights. (many cars have the stop and back up lights on the same fuse)

Brake lights work tail lights do not


This could be your reason. Some vehicle come equiped with a double filiment bulb. It could be that this part of your tail light bulb is blown. Try removing one of the bulbs to see if the filiment is broken. If you can not see this, replace the bulb.

The other senario is that the fuse in your fuse panel controling your tail lights (running light) is blown. This is usually on a seperate fuse than your brake lights. Your owner's manual should state which fuse is what on your panel and replace is with the exact same ratted fuse that it calls for.

Good luck! Hope I helped.

2002 Toyota highlander passenger brake light not working


RE: 2002 Toyota Highlander 2.4cyl. 4X4 Base Model

I am a Certified Technician and have basic knowledge with electronics in electrical wiring. I searched the web and discovered this is a common problem.

I fixed the problem and it was a simple procedure... The problem is with the reverse light socket at the side with no brake light. This socket functions as a hub to direct current to the brake bulbs.

Remove reverse light socket and re-seat bulb. Check for loose or broken prongs. Replace if necessary.

Swap the reverse socket with the other side.

Right brake light out; tail light works fine


most rear tail lights and turn/stop lights are the same dual filiment bulb. it is possible for your tail light to work and your brake light not to and still have a bad bulb. I would check the bulb first, your brake light works on the left yes? this would mean that the fuse is fine

Only headlights work, 91 4dr EX


ok supaxang, could this solution be as simple as replace the 2 rear bulbs? The brake light and tail light (parking light) are the same bulb, 2 filaments, one for brakes, one for tail lights. If the the tail light filament burns out, the brake light will continue to work ok. It is quite possible that both tail lights burned out, and the brake light filaments are good and still working. Replace w/ bulb #2057. Let me know if this fixes it, if not, I'll keep working on it.
