Rhigt tail light change how


1Check the fuse. A blown fuse usually causes both lights to go out. On newer cars, the tail lamps can be fused separately and/or each bulb or shared circuit can be fused. A fuse can be blown due to other problems, so you'll need to check more than just the fuse, but it's the right place to start. Look in your owner's manual to determine where the fuse box is located in your car.
2Look at the tail lamp wiring. These are the wires that lead to the tail lights, located inside the lid of the trunk. Open the trunk and take a look. You can see where the wires should connect in order for the electrical system to properly work. If a wire has come loose, reattach it.
3Check the taillight bulbs. If the fuse and wiring look right, the bulbs themselves might be the problem. To check them, unscrew the taillight lenses from the outside using a screwdriver.
4Check the taillight lenses. Whether or not you were able to fix the problem of your tail lights working correctly by examining the fuse, wiring and light bulb, it's important to check the lenses as well to make sure they're not cracked or broken.

On the fuse chart, what is the abbreviation for the brake light fuse


Should all be the same fuze. Check the bulbs and whether the harness to the rear lights that usually runs through the trunk hasn't been pulled.

The back up lights and trunk lid lights don't


Check the wire connecting the lights. It often runs up near the hinge and could get separated, damaged or cut. If it is cut or damaged a simple splice should repair it. Also check your fuses.

Brake lights dont work


On some cars the bulb for the brake lights is separate than the tail lights. If not then check the fuse for the brake lights. It is typically separate from the tail lights. Also check for broken wires in the trunk area. These could be damaged from items in the trunk moving around.

My Brake lights don't work


2004 Rx8 kept blowing 15amp brake light fuse. Solution: wire going to rear lights was worn and frayed where it feeds through the left trunk lip on left side of trunk. This can be seen when you open the trunk lid. The wire routes by the trunk lid hinge. If the support connectors come loose, the wires are crunched by the hinge or lid. Re-splice, insulate, zip-tie, replace fuse and replace any blown bulbs.

Hi,

The jiggle method is not enough you have to look at the wires. I just did and I found out that all six wires were broken close to the splice. That splice is located close to the back seat.

Hope it hepls.

No brake lights, fuses keep blowing and wont shift out of park


I would look for a wiring short in the trunk at the taillamp area, or, inspect the sockets for the taillamp bulbs for corrosion. In any case, you have a short circuit in the trunk area, also check the wire that comes from the body & goes up the trunk hinge on the driver side; that wire may be chafed, and it may be shorting out. Hope this helps; please get back to me if you need any further assistance.

Check the connections going up from the body to the trunk lid. Right at the hinge point, the wires often break internally. If it's the ground wire for the centre light, it's getting it's ground through the tail lights which should cause the problem.
The other thing to check is the switch at the brake pedal. I think it's 2 seperate circuits right from the brake switch.
