The tail lights dont have anything to do with the engine running or not.. you mean the brake lights are on? all the time? all of them, or just the one in the back window? If the back window brake light doest work the bulb is bad. If the brake lights stay on, the switch may be bad, out of adjustment, or the bumper for the switch fell out/broken.

My rear lights wont come on even though the brake lights and the head lights work. is it the running light modulator


If your car uses a modulator it might be the problem. Or the tail light fuse or the headlight switch.
The tail lights are on a different circuit from the brake lights.

Rear running lights not working, brake lights work ,when pressing brake.,,, changed fuse and still nothing?


tail lights did not work but any other light did. In the engine compartment fuse box the EXT fuse is not there are instead there is a piece of rubber. If you put in a 10A fuse as described in the owner's manual then the lights run with the switch instead of being always on. Must be something wrong with DRL relay for the rear lights.

1994 Camry - Brake Lights Work, Tail Lights Wont


Well Jennifer, it sounds like you've done all the things that I'd have done. Try for a bad ground next. Do the lights in the dash cluster work? They're wired together with the tail-lights (so that you know if the rears go out). There should be a ground wire somewhere connecting the body to the engine or chassis.Look around the rear of the engine bay. Good Luck.

Right brake light out; tail light works fine


most rear tail lights and turn/stop lights are the same dual filiment bulb. it is possible for your tail light to work and your brake light not to and still have a bad bulb. I would check the bulb first, your brake light works on the left yes? this would mean that the fuse is fine

1993 saturn sl engine dies


I just had this problem with my 97 sc1. I found that the driver's rear tail lights were staying on dim when ever the car was running. In my situation, the cluster of wires that ties to the rear tail light is also the wires that tie to the fuel pump. Every time you hit the brake, it shorted out and cut the power to the fuel pump. Test for this problem by pulling one of your tail light bulbs, if the car shuts off or wont start without it, this could be your problem.
