Question about 1988 Chevrolet C1500

1 Answer

My tail lights stopped working on my 1988 chevy C-1500. I thought that it might be the bulbs of fuse. I checked the bulbs and they were okay. I checked all the fuses but have no idea which one it would be. All fuses seemed to be okay. What else could it be? The blinkers still work though.

Older trucks are bad about loosing the ground in the back.. You could try finding the ground or splice in a new one... See if the terminals are "hot" If they are fix the grounds.

My tail light not working


Which light?
One light not working? Check the bulb.
Both tail lights not working? Check the fuses and the bulbs.
Brake light (or lights) not working? Check the bulb, fuses and brake light switch.
Totally no lights in one or both tail light assemblies? Check the plugs on the light assemblies from inside the car. Check the fuses. Check the grounds (might be some under the dash for those lights).

Tail light doesnt turn on with headlights but works fine as a break light and turn signal, why?


in the rear lights you may have two bulbs one is the turn signal the other one is stop light / tail light the stop light / tail light has two filaments, one for the stop light (21 watt) & one for the tail light (5 watt) it is possible that the tail light filament is blown, try replacing the bulb to see if that fixes the problem,also check all the fuses as well.......hope this helps......cheers.

1998 chevy pickup, passanger side brake and turn signal will not work, all other lights work.


first thing check all fuses, if ok your problem more likely rear tail lens circuit board where your bulbs push into. the sockets over heat and melt . this is a problem with these trucks from 1988 to 1999

1988 pathfinder no dash lights no revers lights no tail lights no gaiges


If they all stopped working at the same time then it is probably a fuse or possibly 2. Check your fuse panels in the dash and under the hood. The dash lights and gauges should be a fuse labeled instrument cluster or guages, it is probably blown. The other fuse to look for will be the tail light fuse. This is where I would begin.

Tail light out 2005 kia spectra


Most cars these day's have separate bulbs for each function ie: tail, turn, stop & back up. Turn the light's on & double check the position of the bulb on the side that is working and go from there, also before you pull your hair out check your fuse's because some model's have a fuse for each light ie: Lt low beam, Lt high beam ect... hope this help's you. Good luck!

Tail lights don't work on 1998 Chevy Silverado.


check the wiring from the tailights back to the fuse panel, it sounds like an open connection. if i recall correctly check under the dash on the drivers side near the fuse panel for a bunch of wires in a bundle and look carefully for a wire or two that are cut/shorted/or seperated, you can also check under the drivers side kick panel by the hood release.

1998 chevy truck tail light an panel light popin fuse,s i checked all wiring in rear no damage to wiring bought an change 3 way bulb holder. still same prob, don,t no were to go next Keith


Somtimes the bulbs get a dead short in them even though they look OK. Install new bulbs or remove all bulbs on this circuit and reinstall one at a time to see if fuse pops. I had this problem with signal lights on 95 chevy 1500 and turned out the back up bulbs were on the same circuit. Bad back up bulb so once truck was in reverse it blew the fuse and then the signals did not work. Cheap enough to be worth a shot.
