If you have power at the proper pins inside each socket, you will need to check for grounds. A turn or brake light bulb will have 2 hot wires, one is hot with the lights on = running lights. One will be hot when the turn signal or brake light is on. Now this is not always the case. A newer car may have individual bulbs, but each will have a hot wire and a ground. I think your problem is in the ground wiring. Check each socket for voltage against that sockets ground or in other words check each wire in each socket only, not to a common ground such as the body. If you have a ground wire in one of the sockets that is not grounded to the frame/body you can jump to one of the other grounds that is good.

2007 gm sierra right running tail light will not work left one is fine


Did you check the bulb? Do you have power reaching bulb? Is the ground any good?

If everything checks out fine and you still cannot get it to work, simply bridge the power line of that bulb with the power line that is currently feeding the working tail light.

It works and you do not go crazy checking out wiring.

No tail signal hazard and stop lights


After checking for power at the fuses for these circuits, I would check for power at the multi-function switch. Everything but the parking lights is wired thru that turn signal switch.

The tail lights and dash lights are out and everything else is working what could it be?


Your dash lights going out is an indication that your tail lights are not working. Most of the time it is just a bad tail light fuse. It could also be a bad relay( if there is a separate tail light relay) or a broken wire . If you have a shorting wire on a tail light or on the wire going to the fuse box that could be the source of the problem. If the fuse int he box is good then check the power wire going to the box.

The dash lights and tail lights are not working but everything else lights properly. All the fuses are good. What next?


dash lights, tail lights, park lights and plate lights do share the same source of power for pickups.
try to replace your dash light and tail light bulbs, it would probably solve your problem.

1998 Jeep Wrangler Sport tail lights don't work. Stop lamps, turn signals, reverse lamps all work. Everything seems to work except the tail lights.


if the bulbs are good, the only thing left is the headlight switch, or wires. black/yellow wires from the switch all the way back to bulbs. ck power to the bulbs first. if no power, then ck power at switch.

Tail Lights Don't Work


I would take out the tail light fuse and repace with a known good fuse. Use a test light to see if you are getting power at each side of the fuse at the little metal tabs on the top of the fuse.

If you have power at each location, then something happned at the connection. You may need an owners manual with a wiring diagram.

Rear brake lights don't work


There is only one brake light switch. There should be a wiring harness connector somwhere in the back of the car. Follow the wires from the tail lights until you get to this connector. Take it apart and clean the terminals and reassembl. If this does not do it, move further up the harness until you next connector, do the same thing.

Good luck
