That sounds like either they left a wire connector loose and forgot to re-connect it, or they painted a ground surface and now that circuit has no ground to it. I would take the vehicle back to them if the vehicle did not have that problem before it went to them.

    If the vehicle did not have that problem before you took the vehicle in to be painted, then they are the ones who did something to the vehicle, and they should have an idea of what it was that they did or forgot to do, and if the vehicle did have that problem before it was painted then that is a completely different matter, and I can give you further diagnostic procedures in that case. Have you also checked all of the maxi-fuses and all of the fusible links?

  • Zaraki Sep 16, 2010

    You will know any bad fusible link wires when you find one, because they will stretch like a rubber band, and one of the wires might have been pulled loose from its connector inside of the fuse/relay box. also check for any pal fusible links.

    I will look for fusible links in the am, and have pretty much been blown off by the bodyman, so am not wanting to pay again, hoping i can sort it out , so far thanks, fusible links should be not so hard to find,,,i have a book

  • Zaraki Sep 17, 2010

    Be sure that there are no wires pulled loose from the inside of the fuse/relay box, (the wires do attach under the fuses) and also check the bulkhead wire connector at the fire-wall on the driver side, and any other wire connectors in that area for any loose or dis-connected wire connectors.

2008 dodge 1500 4wd tail light wire harness color code with trailer hitch

If you adding a trailer light harness, you can buy a seperate harness from most auto parts stores that will plug right in. There should be a connector near the rear of the truck that you can unplug, and add the trailer harness. It's simple and fast and you don't end up making a mess of your wiring. I suggest puting some "dielectric grease" on the connections to prevent corrosion.
Flat 4 connector.
Brown is tail lights and marker lights.
Yellow and Green are turn and stop. I think yellow is left.
White is ground.

Where is tail light fuse in 1996 chevrolet silverado pickup

Left of the steering wheel & under the dash is the fuse panel for this. No.9 is for the tail lights, but also for many other lights such as licence lamp/parking lamp/side marker/tail gate/etc...
There is also an under the hood fuse/relay panel, but it does not have the tail light fuse in it.
