Yesterday i had my dash board ripped out to get heater core replaced, and since then it has not worked. Could a wire gotten pinched or would that have anything to do with the problem?

I have a 2004 Ford F150 FX4 with a tail light problem?


I had a similar problem when my original bulb burned out and I attempted to replace it. Found out the bulb I bought to replace it worked as a turn signal and brake light but not a tail light. Make sure you're using the. Perfect replacement bulb. Most bulbs now are doubled and tripled in functions so if yours is triple but you have a double bulb it won't light up your tail light. Start there

Where is on 1987 pontiac 6000 are the bulbs for turn signals How do I get to them? & or the flasher ? Is it in the fuse box?


The turn signals at the rear share the same bulb, same filament on the bulb even, as the brake lights. So if you have brake lights, the rear turn signal bulbs are good. If I recall, you access the rear bulbs from inside the trunk, and pretty easy to change bulbs. Look for a panel or trim piece in the trunk that covers the light bulb assemblies. You turn the bulb sockets a quarter turn counter-clockwise and pull them out, then you can replace the bulbs. They are two filament bulbs-one filament for the park lights (tail lights) and one filament that serves for brakes and turn signals together.
The flasher unit is a small round cylinder, I don't believe it was in the fuse box, but located up under the dash, close to the steering column. The hazard flasher unit was also up under there and looks the same. Look for them on a bracket near or by the steering column, possibly one on each side of the steering column To find the turn flasher, turn your hazard switch on. The little round unit that is clicking-you may hear it or feel it click with your finger on it-is the hazard flasher. The turn flasher will be the one that is not clicking. A little round cylinder is how you identify it.

Tail lights not working


ck fuse for rear taillights tis under the dash lower left of steering wheel. or if you still have the manual look in there under fuses.
also look for a bad ground but i doubt that.. if it's both rear out.
fast flashing well here's a chart with all sorts of info.
Problem What To Do Turn signals light, but do not flash Replace the flasher No turn signals light on either side Check the fuse. Replace if defective.
Check the flasher by substitution.
Check for open circuit, short circuit or poor ground. Both turn signals on one side don't work Check for bad bulbs.
Check for bad ground In both housings. One turn signal light on one side doesn't work Check and/or replace bulb.
Check for corrosion in socket. Clean contacts.
Check for poor ground at socket. Turn signal flashes too fast or too slow Check any bulb on the side flashing too fast. A heavy-duty bulb is probably installed In place of a regular bulb
Check the bulb flashing too slow. A standard bulb was probably installed in place of a heavy-duty bulb
Check for loose connections or corrosion at the bulb socket Indicator lights don't work in either direction Check If the turn signals are working
Check the dash indicator lights
Check the flasher by substitution One Indicator light doesn't light On systems with 1 dash indicator:
- See if the lights work on the same side. Often the filaments have been reversed In systems combining stoplights with taillights and turn signals
- Check the flasher by substitution On systems with 2 Indicators:
- Check the bulbs on the same side
- Check the indicator light bulb
- Check the flasher by substitution
hope this helps. may want to print for future reference. :)
hope this helps.

Start with checking your tail light bulb if the front one is working. If it isnt the rear bulb its the flasher itself.

Tail lights and dash lights come on when you push the brake


You could have one of two problems here. Firstly if you are getting a christmas tree effect on rear lamp assy ie dull glow from all the lights ,, It's most likely a bad earth/ground connection to lamp,,Secondly if anybody has changed rear bulbs or attempted to fix the problem may have inserted a single contact (21W) indicator/turn signal bulb into the Twin contact brake/tail light socket in error . one bulb (21W) has oposite located pin lugs on side of bulb the double contact brake tail bulb (21/5W) has offset pins. Good luck

Brake lights quit working


Tail lights acting insane?

We had the same issue with our 2000 Pontiac Montana. Brake lights, turn signal lights, running lights, back-up lights and emergency flasher didn’t work at all or operated at random. The cause: poorly designed aluminum contacts on the tail light circuit board and wiring harness connector arced over and disintegrated with normal use.

Pull the tail lamp assembly, remove the electrical connector and look for burned contacts on the connector plug and the connector socket (they call this long plastic piece with the socket the circuit board: it includes the four bulb sockets. Replace the circuit board and the wiring connector.

You can DIY this job with basic auto mechanical/electrical skills and tools. The two circuit boards and the two connectors set me back $230 (2009 cost) for new parts. The electrical contacts on the factory replacement parts are improved.

I needed a T-30 torx driver to remove the tail light assembly (you need this to change out bulbs, too), wire cutters, wire strippers, electrical tape and an electrical lug crimper to do the job.

Do you own a test light? Check for power at wires behind socket? Clean socket good , check contact spots for bulb & clean any rusty side of the socket with emery cloth, or sandpaper, for good contact also.
