    Yes the rest of the lights work fine, I didnt check the bulbs because I didnt think all of them would go out at the same time.

    I also check all of the fuses, and they were fine

I am assuming the rest of the lights work fine?If they do it is not likely a fuse because a fuse would be associated with more than just the rear lights.Have you checked bulbs?It is not necessary to check all of them but I would at least check 1 of both systems.

    It is not likely that all the lights would go at once but tomorrow please check out at least 1 in both systems.If they are both good we'll go from there.I should be back on between 10-11 AM EST.(Like I said too,if the rest of the lights work it is not the fuse because a fuse would NOT just control 4 or 5 lights).^

BF wagon eye level brake light is not working have tested globe and globe is working. Also reverse lights not working


If the other brake lights work, probably broken wire. Eye level meaning Suv hatch? If so, the wires tend to break at the rubber boot from the hatch to the body. The reverse lights run threw the neutral safety switch on the transmission. Could be a broken wire, most times it is the switch.

Stuck in park,power windows don't work,reverse lights don't work dash doesn't work. keeps blowing 10 amp fuse for reverse lights.changed brake pedal switch didn't help


of course changing a brake pedal switch will not help in a reversing light problem
they are two totally different circuits
check for a damaged wire at the reverse light switch or bulb holder for the reversing bulbs for a dead short
as for the rest check the IGN fuse under the bonnet

Reverse lights/Rear internal brake light not working


there is a reverse switch on top of the trans where the shift cable is attached. is there power to and through that switch while in reverse? the cyclops light needs the power interruption traced back from the socket to the switch on the brake pedal to find out where you have lost power or possibly taped into brake power at another brake light bulb socket

Brake light, reverse light and turn signal issues


Hello. The symptoms you are describing are likely due to a poor ground. Temporarily install a new ground wire by securing a piece of copper wire to the frame with a self tapping screw. Use this ground wire along with the hot wire to see if each of these lights works. If it does, trace the ground wire back to the frame, unscrew it and clean up the metal with emery cloth so you reestablish a good ground.
