This is not electronical problem.Just missing negative/earth/ at a back lights.Or bad conection.Anyway you need to jump another wire from vehicle body to each rear lamp,conected to negative line inside the lamp.

Sounds like a short in the socket or a bad ground.
The parking light is one circuit and the brake turn signal is another.

The plate lights are connected with the park lamp circuit and it is Possible that the GROUND connection to the ligh assembly has failed or it can be the lamp holder that has failed.

No break lights, high beams, or turn signal lights


Do they work intermittently? Do your low beams go out sometimes when you put on turn signal? Do hazards work sometimes and if you play with switch they work off and on? I just had a problem with headlights would go off if I put on turn signal and if I jiggled the turn lever they would come back on and had trouble with all light working intermittently, brakes, turn and hazard. It was a Turn signal switch problem.The contacts in the switch were bad, all corroded and green when I took it apart. I know you wouldn't think this would affect brake lights but hey all run through this switch because of hazards and high beams. I got a new switch from dealer and all is working great now. Here's a link a link I used for switch replacement instructions. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f11/write-up-replace-turn-signal-switch-97-xj-620147/
If it isn't a fuse or wiring issue I would look into the switch.

Rear tail and brake lights out 97 Jetta


I believe this car has a bulb with two fillaments for side and brake lights, it is unlikely that they are both burnt out at the same time but possible. It is more likely that the bulb holder or a ground connection is rusted or loose. The fuse generally covers all rear lights.

Had the same issue in the spring. Replace the turn signal switch. A general weakness in the switch in these years. Replacement solved the problem in my 97 Lumina.

Signal lights don't work, I've changed the fuses..1996vw jetta


Most likely a bad turn signal flasher . if the flasher is proper then check out if the socket where you insert the bulb is getting proper voltage.if not change that socket.
