You may have a bare wire grounded to frame, touching the frame off and on by viberation or motion, driving. Start with the tail light and go forward follow the wire to point of orgion of power. Get a wiring diagram from dealer or go to library in the automotive section should be info. There should be a diagnoise in book or ask dealer for diag to find problem. Hope this might help you

open the trunk.
pull back the cover on the side you need to change, there are usually 3 black plastic nut you have to remove before doing this.
after the trunk interior cover is pulled off there are 3 nuts, 11mm wrench or socket will take them off. pull the taillight assembly out and twist the socket out containing the bulb that is blown. the bulb just pulls out of the socket. while the bulb is out you should inspect the socket for corrosion, it wont hurt to clean it up and put some die electric grease in there

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.

Bulb has been replaced...tail light and brake lights work on driver's side but only tail lights work on passenger side. when the brake is pushed that light goes completely out.


It sounds like a ground wire problem. Try to trace the ground wire from the passenger side. Look for a broken wire or a corroded ground connection.

Passenger tail light inoperational. i switched the harnesses and the driver side works when i switch the female ends. found a frayed wire on the passenger side... spliced it and did not get any changes. ...


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!

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.

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.
