If you open the trunk and pull back the lining on the side that the burnt out bulb is on you should be able to see the back end of it. then you just have to push and turn the old builb and it should come right out.

Somtimes the bulbs get a dead short in them even though they look OK. Install new bulbs or remove all bulbs on this circuit and reinstall one at a time to see if fuse pops. I had this problem with signal lights on 95 chevy 1500 and turned out the back up bulbs were on the same circuit. Bad back up bulb so once truck was in reverse it blew the fuse and then the signals did not work. Cheap enough to be worth a shot.

Robynumber1,

Thanks for the email back. The nissan quest tail lights werenot operating, but the break lights were working. This was ultimately caused by a blown fuse. The fuse was blown by loose trailer lighting wires dragging on the ground, thus shorting. Problem fixed.

The Tail Lights Are Accessed From The Inside Of The Trunk There Will Either Be A Panel Immediately Behind Where The Light Is Or Carpet. Remove It And It Will Give You Access To The Rear Of The Bolts Just Grab Twist And Pull And The Light Will Come Out.

SOURCE: bulbs keep burning out

When you replace headlights in today's cars, DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS OF THE BULB!. Handle the bulb only with the packing material the bulb ships in, or with a clean dry cloth.The oils in your skin will cause premature failure of the bulb.

Also, check the sockets (car side) carefully to make sure they are not burned.

BMW 650 Tail Light Problem


If you find that your BMW 650 CS/GS/Dakar tail light doesn’t work at all or flickers when riding, chances are the metal power terminals inside the bulb socket are no longer making a good connection with the metal bumps on the tail light bulb. This is a very common problem with the BMW 650 of all makes, models, and years. Fortunately, there is a very easy fix.
Due to excessive vibration, temperature changes, and replacing light bulbs, the two metal power terminal tabs inside the tail light socket deform and get pushed too far back inside the tail light chassis. This prevents the tail light bulb from making good contact with the power terminals and the smallest vibrations can cause the electric connection to break temporarily or indefinitely.

To fix the problem, all you need to do is pry the two metal power tabs forward just a little so that they make a better connection with the metal bumps on the tail light bulb. If you look at the back of the bike, the red tail light casing on the 650 CS/GS/Dakar is held in place with two screws. If you remove these screws the red tail light casing comes off and you have access to the light bulb inside. At this point, turn the ignition on, but you don’t need to start the bike. Remove the light bulb by pushing in and twisting clockwise about 1/8 turn. If the bulb flickered while removing it, then the bent power terminals are most likely the cause.
Looking at the tail light bulb you should see two metal bumps. These bumps need to make a good connection with the two metal power terminals inside the tail light casing. Turn the ignition off and find a small tool that you can use to pry the power terminals forward just a bit. Make sure the bike is off and you don’t want the power terminals tabs inside the tail light casing to touch.
After you have made the adjustment, turn the ignition back to “on” and re-insert the taillight bulb. If the bulb is lit, then you are done. If it still flickers a bit and doesn’t stay lit, then you will need to continue prying the tabs forward until a good connection is made.

Tail lights don't work on 83 cutlass supreme


I assume you checked the bulbs and they were good? It's possible that the sockets have gone bad and need replacing. The tail lights are fused through the instrument panel lights. that fuse should be in the middle of your fuse box, marked "instr". If the fuse is good check to see if the dash lights come on when you turn the headlight switch on. If they don't then change the headlight switch. hope this helps.

No left tail light


use a test light and test for (both)power and ground, go to your local auto parts store and ask one of the guys what kind of bulb your car requires and how to check it with a test light if the (correct) bulb doesn't fix the problem. I think you will find this the best way to get it fixed . without knowing what kind of car you have, test lights are cheap and a handy tool to have.. best of luck and don't forget to tell me if i was of help.. jay florida

My tail lights don't work but my turn signals and brake lights work. when i hook up to my trailer and turn the lights on all the trailer lights work but still no truck tail lights


the tail lights are the same bulb but they use a different filament in the bulb.you may need to replace the bulbs.another possibility is there maybe a problem with the wiring for the tail lights between the socket and the area where the trailer wiring is connected to the truck wiring.try the bulbs first,you just have to try one first to see it it works or not then you will know what to do next.

I have a problem with my 1978 chevy pickup tail light. It is the left tail light that doesnt work when I press and the brake and the signal. And the light bulb is good. but when i put on my parking lights...


the cheapest thing to do is change any and all bulbs in that tail light. if 1 is bad it can effect all of them. hopefully you don't have a short somewhere. but i would try the bulbs first, they're only a couple dollars and usually the problem. gl

I have a 1998 Ford Expedition, and the licence plate lights don't work. I've replaced the bulbs. I don't have an owners manual so don't know which relay switch to change. Can anyone help?...


Hi, there is no relay, and the plate light run off the same fuse as the tail lights. The problem must be in the wiring or sockets in the back of the truck.
