Check the driver side! Usually those old subs were wired to use the driving side first and then pigtail over to the passenger side... Also, alot of the tail light problems are caused from mud & snow piling up behind your back bumper... this cause weight on the wires and SNAP! Tail lights stop working! You're just going to have to follow that wire harness back until you find it! By the way, Check your ground behind the tail light covers! They also tend to rust and loose connections! Another problems are the sockets going bad! I replaced mine about once evey 5 years... annoying, bad got to love suburbans!

Hello i have a toyota camry 1992 and my passenger side marker wont turn off ???


That's very odd, because the wiring for all of the side markers are just splices from the nearest park lamp wires- the rear tail light in the rear (and the license plate lamps are also splices from these tail lights), and in the front side markers, they are splices from the nearest park lamps. Do all the other park lights work and turn on with the park light switch on? I would examine the 2 wires from that side marker's socket to the wiring harness it goes into-the power wire would somewhere splice into the passenger tail light wire. The other wire would be a ground wire and also splices into a ground wire for the rear end. To be on, the marker lamp would have to be getting power from some live source. I can't imagine where. Does the rear passenger light work correctly?

In that harness to the rear where the park lamps run, there might be a live wire going to an electrical trunk latch switch, or maybe a trunk lamp. If the wires were frayed right beside the side marker wire, you could have some cross feeding of power between the two. Let me know, we always appreciate feedback.

Pass Side Window Malfunction


Very unusual issue. Sounds as if you may have a wiring section frayed or almost broken. This usually happens in the area which flexes in the hinge area on the driver's door, as the driver's door sees the most use. I know the issue is with the passenger side window, but remember that the hot wire for that window runs first thru the driver's master switch.

Passenger side power window inoperable on my 2003 Tahoe


If you have checked all the fuses and for unplugged connections of frayed or damaged wires, the next step would be to remove the drivers door panel, carefully, and check for voltage at the switch. If it is okay, and the switch is okay, remove the door panel on the Passenger side, check for voltage at the regulator motor while pressing the switch. If it is present, replace the regulator.

On my 91 civic all the seatbelts are fastened and the seatbelt light still flashs and the warning beeper is beeping how can i resolve this prob.?


My guess, the switch that is in the female end of the drivers side seat belt. The switch is bad or it's come unpluged or it's corroded. It's hard to get at without pulling the seat (four bolts and a harness plug). The plug for the seatbelt plug is usually under the carpet but if you pop off the plastic cover over the bolt that holds the female end of the belt to the car body there is usually enough slack in the wire to pull it up enough to see if the plug or wire is broken or corroded. If not, pull the bolt (it will be lock-tited in so it will come out hard). If the wire looks good, ground the lead wire (wire that goes to the drivers side female end of the setbelt). If the light goes out the switch in the female end of the belt is bad. If it still does,t go out, well I'd have to be there to troubleshoot it further.
Hope this helps.

My o3 navigators adjustable brakes will only move about 1/2 inch either direction. It's fine if they don't work but is there any way to move them to the farthest position manually?


With both tail light lenses removed locate the black with yellow wires and the dark green with brown wires coming out of the brake/tail/turn signal sockets.

The black with yellow wire will be the running lights or tail lights and the brown wire from the trailer harness will attach to it.

The green wire on the trailer harness will be the right turn signal and will be attached to the passenger side tail light harness dark green with brown wire.

The yellow wire on the trailer harness will be the left turn signal and will be attatched to the dark green with brown wire on the drivers side tail light harness.

The white wire on the trailer harness is the ground wire and will need to be attached to a good ground. Is it pretty easy to crimp an eyelet onto the end of the wire and use a self tapping screw to attach it to the body behind one of the tail light lenses.

Here is a trailer light/wiring article I have done in the past. It has a couple of good tips you may find useful.
