Could you take out a bulb and with a testlight/probe check that you do in fact have power to that circuit .Also check that they are the correct bulb for that application I have seen people put indicator bulbs in where therse supposed to be a double filament bulb.Does the base of the bulbs lead contacts line up with the two steel terminals inside the plug?

There was a recall on this, take to the dealer and they will replace the whole socket on this.

SOURCE: Tail lights don't work on 1998 Chevy Silverado.

check the wiring from the tailights back to the fuse panel, it sounds like an open connection. if i recall correctly check under the dash on the drivers side near the fuse panel for a bunch of wires in a bundle and look carefully for a wire or two that are cut/shorted/or seperated, you can also check under the drivers side kick panel by the hood release.

SOURCE: 2001 VW Jetta rear running lights out. bulbs good, fuses good.

Almost sure it is a recall for a relay. Call the dealer, I had a 2001 VR6 with the same problem, and it was a simple, free recall.

SOURCE: Rear tail light on one side won't work. Fuse is

Sounds like either a short in the wiring or corrosion built up on the contacts in the bulb socket. First try cleaning the contacts in the socket with a wire brush. Look at the wiring for any burnt spots or obvious damage to the insulation on the wires. I would start by insulating the wires with electrical tape as far back from the socket as I could reach and see if that helps. Good luck.

Where is the fuse for the rear tail light on a 2008 highlander


If you have only one bulb not working, or if you have only one side of the rear lights not working, it would not be a fuse.
Fuses generally control , for example, all the rear tail lights, or all the front parking lights, etc.
Those fuses are found in the fuse holder underneath the dashboard of the vehicle.
If you have only one bulb out, either the bulb is burned out, or a socket for the bulb is defective, or the ground wire is not working.
If you have one side out, you likely have a wiring problem.
God bless your efforts.

2010 f150 tail lights and tag lights stopped working fuses and blubs good any ideas


Check the fuses with something that sends current through them , sometimes they can be bad and still look like they are good . If not that then a short in a wire somewhere.

REAR LIGHTS AND FLASHERS IS NOT WORKING


Hi there
your problem is either Light switch, broken wire from switch or from the fuse box or broken wires from switch to rear end which should run down 1 side of car coming from front to rear via in sill [thats in the side by the seats in side under the carpet either side] or it could be a earth wire broken so remove the rear light cover and turn on the rear light and touch a wire from any metal service to globe holder if it lights the globe then fir a wire to any light to earth and every thing should work.

Tail lights, instrument panel lights, and license plate lights not working. Fuse blows immediately when changed.


that line on that fuse is shorted, the fuse saved the fire.
we use an ampclamp DC ammeter to find the wire that is shorted
and the actual point of short.

the park-tail circuit (tail fuse, right) is the most complex of all.
20 lamps inside car, and many out side, it is the hardest to find of all shorts. but not with the tool
first check for damage behind all park lamps
i bet the fuse blows in park (1st click) not head lights. right?
side lamps the 4 front rear park lamps, some call it tail its not really tail now, was in 1920 ,not now. park is everywhere.
but the fuses can be marked tails, for fun .
imagine, calling the 2 front lamps tails. and are on .(my on going joke)
sidelamps,
the inside lamps are many too.
all dimmable lamps. so turn the dimmer down to zero and see if fuse blows now, NO?, bingo.

the best way to fix this is , visual inspections for collision damage or wire hacks in the cab.
then the fuse is pulled and circuit breaker inserted 15amp
(they sell em)
then we connent the ammeter to the wire (output of fues)
i push the switch and amps goes to infinity and the CB trips
if follow the cables, and find what line is shorted.

i missed one problem
on the rear or front 4 corners of the car may be twist lock blubs.
like 1157 or? these love to short. push in lamps never short.well not the lamp actual.
in not sure what lamps the 06 uses, but replace the brass based lamps. (in park tail ckt)

99 mercury mystide had rear running light broken


If the driver's side tail light is working, it's not a fuse. Use a test light to check for power at the bulb holder. One terminal will be for tail light, the other for brake/turn light. If the is constant power for tail light, replace bulb. If no power, trace wiring from bulb holder to driver's side junction. Probable broken wire between the two tail lights.
