Question about 2001 GMC Sierra Crew Cab

3 Answers

Tail light not working.

One of my tail lights does not work, the other does. Both of my brake light work as do all other lights. I have put a new bulb in, switched the bulbs, so I know it must be wiring. It shouldn't be a fuse because the other one works. Where do I go from here, start testing wires with a multimeter? or have I missed something obvious or is there a trick anyone knows?

Did you check the tailight relay under the hood?

Posted on May 26, 2008

Use a test light, one end to good ground, the probe end to the power end of tail light socket. If test light lights up, you have power there. Check for ground. hook up a good ground to that light ground to see if the tail light works. if the light works, that light socket has bad ground. Make a new ground for it

Im replacing a tail light circuit board on both rear lights, is their any special way to do this


just check accurately bulbs if you mixed it could happen like that, some cars for the brake lights use two contact bulbs some of them single contact, two contact bulbs can give two signals which one is used for brake ligths and another for taillight, so check the bulbs carefully

Tail lights went out, but break lights still work....what is going on???


Bulbs have 2 filaments in them so that one bulb can do the same as two. One filament runs for brake and turn signals the other for the tail lights. You need a set of 1157 bulbs with the flat plastic ends. If new bulbs don't work you may have a wiring or switch problem, but they die at the same time a lot more than people think

Rear tail and brake lights out 97 Jetta


I believe this car has a bulb with two fillaments for side and brake lights, it is unlikely that they are both burnt out at the same time but possible. It is more likely that the bulb holder or a ground connection is rusted or loose. The fuse generally covers all rear lights.

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
