If the metal tail light sockets are held into the tail light housing by screws and the ground wires for the tail lights are also held in place by the same screws. This is the source of your lighting problem, plain and simple bad grounding. It will cause tail lights to flicker , work , or not work. Check the ground wires and socket attachments carefully.

No brake lights and only 1 taillight works on driver side and no brake lights on passenger but I do have tail lights


Check your bulbs. There are two filaments in each bulb, one for tail light and one for the brake light, so it's possible to have a tail light with not turn signal or brake light.

Brake light bulb Issue


A bad socket is a common enough problem that it is likely that, rather than a wiring problem. Just splice in a new socket, if you can, or whatever is easier and cheaper (like a tail light assembly from a salvage yard).
Of course if you have a voltmeter or testlight, you can check at the socket electrical connector for power when it should be there-when the brake is pressed.

Headlight switch on makes tail light dim


there must be a short circuit which powers tail lights and brake lights. probably you have a dual filament bulbs which have both brake and tail light together. check for bulb, socket/or bulb housing and harness of that light.

The brake lights do not want to work. i have changed the brake switch under the dash and the bulbs on the tail lights.still nothing. i also, changed fuses.


does the high mounted brake light work? the brake switch has 2 contacts one for the high mount (LT BLUE/BLACK) and one for the tail brake lights. The tail/brake light wire is LIGHT BLUE. the main connector between the brake light switch and the tail lights is C208 which is located behind the rear seat, left side. So if there is power coming out of the brake switch OK and no power at the tail lights, check that connector. Hope this helps.

I have a 2005 GMC Envoy. Have tail lites but no brake lites. Third lite on top works whet brakes applied


Since the high mounted brake light works you know that the brake light switch is working. Now you need to check the brake light bulbs in the rear tail light assemblies. The brake lights are separate from the tail light (parking or running lights). There are two screws that hold the rear light assemblies in place.

My rear brake light is not working, nor is my blinker at the back right. When I put the right turn signal on it blinks really fast, faster than normal, and the front blinker works. I have replaced both...


Normally with the blinker blinking really fast, it's telling you that one of the bulb is blown, front or rear signals. Check your fuse, and fuse relay to see if it would fix the promblem

Brake lights will not come on. It is not the bulb. The tail lights work.


The tail lights working would not necessarily mean that the brake light bulbs are good. If they are the type that have a double filament (ie: one filament for the tail light and another filament for the brake light ) the brake light filament could be bad and the tail lights still would work. If they are either single filament type bulbs or double filament type, I would check the bulb, fuses, and contact switch on the brake pedal.
