    I'll pick up a lighting module,it's the only thing that makes sense. I know it's not a bad ground because head lights, emergency lights, turn signals, brake lights and the third member lights work.

Check the fuses,and then if they are ok,replace the headlight switch.This is what controls the lights you are asking about.

    This is the only thing that controls those lights,did you check the connector to the head light switch?There is a lighting module too,if the connector is fine then the lighting module would be the problem.

  • jet42472 Jul 31, 2010

    Checked every thing you said, I even replaced the head light switch. I didn't realize there is a lighting module.

My 2006 grand vitara tail lights are out I checked the fuses and there good I did notice that my license plate light went out first and than my tail lights could that possibly be the problem?

USA car, non export is my answer and no trailer mods.
no Canada DRL options, right?
are the FRONT PARKS OUT TOO????? my shoe drops.!

so putting in 1 new bulb not fix 1? easy huh>?
did you scan the PCM for errors, DTC errors>
this year has digital controls for that.
the tail lights are really parking lights and are on all 4 corners not just tail. so are they all dead.? and the cab illumination in cluster
in PARK dead?

the BCM puter, closes the park relay on your command(digital)
this feeds 2 fuses rear, 7 an 9 (for both ends of car !!!)
7 left rear and license.
so if 7 and 9 are good then the relay is not closing or bad.?

so in a shop we check fuse 7 and 9 , live, with voltmeter
12vdc both sides, parks ON,
if not 12v the relay is bad or not ON.
so we scan to PCM to see if the BCM sees errors
like "lost park output"
or see CANbus comm errors.
causing the loss of the park command to BCM

BCM means body puter.

not complex but BCM most close the relay !!!
12volts across that coil, or there will be no parks.

25453770-z53v0bh0zacy3ra2sk1gfmgn-2-0.jpg BTW the word tail only works on 1920 fords, had only 1 tail light
the parking light run about 20 lamps all over car. and in front of car.
the front lamp marked tail would be ODD.
but I know what you mean.

I have a 2003 suzuki xl7 what causes the tail lights not to work when ive checked the bulbs and fuses and they are good

it can only be 3 things, blown fuse, (test them not gander)
open circuit or short circuit.
are you saying park running lights are dead, aka, TAIL.
are the park lights working up front, ? and on dash?
1st click of head light switch is park. that is dead,at all lamp inside and outside of car?
02 xl7 (usa car answers, we do, here, as it is a USA forum)

this car has a BCM, body brain.
and it runs most things, we scan it first to see if IT has issues.
called DTCs.
when you select TAIL, at switch this is a digital input to BCM
true (0v = true) signal tells BCM you want tail/ parks on.

it (BCM) then closes relay 23 (seen below) park/tail relay
if the fuse is not blown, then this relay glows the dash
Illumination lights (park dim) are yours glowing now.
yes the all that is good fuse to dash.
now out side car, lots of tail/park lamps, which dont glow, just rear?

Why the brake light works and tail light don't work Chevrolet avalanche 2003

they are dual filament bulbs so the tail light filament might have blown and not the stop light , replace the bulb to check

No tail lights

no (park -tail-running lights) is dash parking lamps glowing?
check the tail fuse yet?
94 accord
this circuit is huge, park/tail, up to 20 lamps. are all dead>?
front park, side park, tail park and dash lamps all out.
this i the red-blk feed. all comments , USA, as lighting varies by country. (laws)
license plate light dead too????????? that too is park
there is NO RELAY.
the fuse 32 feeds the HL (head light) switch and in PARK posistion
it feeds 12vdc raw power to all 38 lamps. (side corning lamps,etc)
the license plate lamp is key, there are 2 lamps.
and both probably are not out.
so if they are good lamps and both tail lamps are good and fuse
then they must glow, if one lamp shorts as 1156 or the like love to do
then it blows the fuse. as does the trailer jack (option) .

so fuse 32 park/tail blown
or HL park switch bad, if all 20 odd lamps dead. and fuse holds.
that simple, and this cars wiring is very simple and nice.

Tail lights don't work and instrument panel won't light up on 2007 corolla

you blew a fuse. check fuses in both fuse boxes..
ahh yes, the IP cluster lamps are dad, but not the idiot warning lights
only the parking lights in the cluster are dead. right.?
and the park-tail, running lights and dash dim lights are all the same.
my guess three is a short on the TAIL fuse, the TAIL fuse blew
and took out: park-tail, running lights and dash dim lights are all the same.
it blew. most are marked tail even thought it runs side lamps and front parking lamps... TAIL is wrong, they are parking. lamps it truth.

No parking lights in back

parking, yes, tail ,park.
(the correct name is park toy calls them tail, tell me how a tail lamp works in front of car, this name is from 1920cars , that only had 1 or 2 tail lights. (fun history that, with funny names)

if actually park lamps. 1st click of head light? switch?
there are over 20 park lamps in car, inside and out.
side markeres, front park lamps
all dimmable lamps inside are park too. all dead>?
then the park relay is bad (tail/park) or fuse. blown.

Running light will not turn off

park-run -tail

check the fuses. first. always for ever and ever, check them first.
maked TAIL , even the front parks are run of TAIL. oddly.
parking lamps is the better term.
TAIL is 1929 word back when they had just 1 lamp... EEEEKKKSSS

Check for Power on your License Plate Light, more than likely you have lost GROUND

Turn Signals, Do the Front Work and the Back don't? If NONE then FLASHER FUSE

95 riviera dash lights or tail lights dont work

You probably have an open/blown tail/park lamp fuse. The dash light fuse gets power from the tail/park lamp fuse, so when you can't see your dash lights, you'll get the vehicle looked at and find you have no park/tail lamps either. It's a safety feature because otherwise you may never know your running lights are not working.
Check your park/tail lamp fuse.
