SOURCE: 91 corvette backup light do not work also 3rd brake light ,bulb&fuses are ok.

I had the same problem with a 91 mazda 626. turned out that the wires that ran from the lights along the trunk and back into the harness were broken from opening/closing the trunk. i would check around that area first.

85 corvette tail lights don't work


Well its an 85 to begin with . Lot s of these vehicles are kept in garages most of the time but still rust never sleeps . You say that the brake and blinkers work thats a good sign . What you need to out is witch lights control the running lights .I mean are they a seperate light or work in conjuntion with the blinkers .In witch case a bad connection at the bulb or a burned out bulb could cause this . But hte most likely cause is a broken ground wire to the lights or a bad ground witch would go to the frame . Try looking under it and pull on ground wires and see if it starts to work they would be black wires and go to the frame or body And you will have to remove the screws that hold the lens in and the assmbely houseing to get a good look at it . Its a bad ground or bad light bulb

How to change the inside overhead brake lights in an 86 corvette


Hi,
1.Remove the two Phillips head screws from the brake light lens cover.
2.
Pull the lens cover away from the tail light panel. Set it aside on a soft surface because the lens scratches easily.

3.Push in the bad brake light bulb. Twist it counterclockwise to disconnect it from the socket
4.
Insert the new brake light bulb while wearing gloves. Twist it clockwise to secure it to the socket.

5.
Re-position the lens cover. Push it in firmly to secure it, and then tighten the two screws.

Good luck!!!!!

1972 corvette brake light bulb wont come out


Take a small piece of cloth and cover the bulb then squeeze it with a pair of pliers and break the bulb. Throw the cloth away. Safety glasses would be good here. Or wiggle the glass part untill it seperates from the base. You choose. Take an awl or a small screwdriver and get between the bulb base and the socket. Now put a small needle nose pliers into the opening squeezing the bulb base and twist the plliers rolling up the side of the base, decreasing it's diameter. Push and turn and the bulb will come out. Go to a plumbing shop or plumbing supply and buy a fitting brush for 1/2" copper fittings. Clean the corrosion out of the socket, put a coating of dielectric grease into the socket. Do the same to the other sockets if the bulbs in them will come out. If they won't, you know what to do. Former 64 Corvette owner. I miss my 31 Ford Tudor Sedan more!

How do i change rear turn signal bulb on 89 corvette, notmine???


Rear Turn Signal, Brake and Parking Lights 1984–89 VEHICLES
  1. If removing an inner bulb, remove the license plate. For outer bulb replacement, reach from under the vehicle.
  2. To remove the inner rear brake light, you must reach behind the license place and under the vehicle to access the bulb and socket
  3. Remove the socket from the lens by releasing the locking tab and twisting
  4. Once the bulb and socket are pulled from the rear of the lens, grasp it from behind the license plate opening
  5. Then, pull it out of the side and replace the bulb
  6. Remove the bulb from the socket and replace.
  7. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

Third brake light on 1988 Toytota Tercel Liftback


I never had a Toyota but if you can change the bulb you should be able to check for voltage. Check voltage at bulb connection and work back from there to find were voltage is lost. If voltage goes into the third light but no voltage at socket it gives you some info on where to look. I had one which had a circuit board which the light plugged into. I had to change the board.
