Poor ground, check the wire harness, this is the one that comes from front of vehicle to the rear and plugs into the wires that go to the rear lights. trace the wire coming out of the light itself and eventually you will see that it comes to a connector that attaches to the wiring harness.

The left tail light on my trailer doesnt work.the stop and turn signal works . is there a fuse for it? i have 2011 gmc sierra 1500


There is a tail lights fuse for the truck, but not for the trailer.
First, check that your left tail light on the truck is working, if not fix the problem (new bulb, bad contact, fuse).
Then the obvious suggestions regarding the trailer are: Check the tail light portion of the bulb to be sure it is not blown. If good (best to put in new one to be sure), then check the wiring from the front of the trailer all of the way to the non working bulb, including every connection and at any place it is secured to the trailer frame. If all is good with the trailer circuit and bulb, then check the truck's trailer connector, including any adapters. If by chance the truck is wired with a flat 4 wire harness the problem may be solved (but usually the blinkers are the problem). Modern trucks require a 5 wire harness which self adapts to the standard 4 wire trailer circuit. Check for dc power (12 volts) from the truck's female connector. One wire will be ground, others will be taillights (turn on headlights), brake lights (have someone press brake pedal), and blinkers (turn on switch and blinkers).

I have a 05 silverado all three break lights do not work. When I hook up my boat the break lights on my trailer function just fine. And all bulbs and fuses are good any ideas.


Have you checked the bulbs? Some people don't beleive all the lights can burn out at once but when one brake light is on they are all on and for the same amount of time.
If the bulbs are fine then check the connection where the trailer plug is to the main harness. Some of those connectors go between the main harness and the tail lights and the connector can go bad.

Left rear tail light and left rear break light not working which fuse is it


Not a lot of detail to work with here... (model, style, etc) Is it all the same bulb? If so, try a new bulb, if they doesn't work, check for contacts erosion
Check for corrosion or disconnect in the harness connector(s) to the main wiring.
Do you have an integrity issue(water invasion, etc)?

License plate lights do not work. Bulbs changed still does not work. The right brake light does not work. Changed bulb and plug. Turning signals work, tail lights work. All works on the left side.


Well for the license plat you might wanna check the fuse. and the brake light if one works fine then I'm sure you need a new bulb in the other side. Good luck

96 contour. left tail light, 1 and 2nd break light are out.


Everything works, more or less, so you know that the switches and fuses are good. That means that you've got either bulb problems or power/ground problems. First, try swapping the bulbs around to see if the "bad" lights will work with the known "good" bulbs in them. If so, you just need to replace some bulbs. If not, check the sockets inside and out for corrosion, clean them (wire brush, steel wool, sandpaper, etc.) if necessary, and use a voltmeter or automotive tester to make sure that you have power and ground to each socket. The fast flash on the turn signal is just an indicator that a bulb is out.

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

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.
