Rear lights not working on 2002 suzuki grand vitara


In the underdash fuse/relay box, the 15A TAIL fuse feeds power to the coil of headlight relay 2. When the combination switch is set to TAIL, the relay closes and the outer tail lamps light. In the same underdash fuse/relay box, the 20A STOP fuse feeds power to the brake light switch. When the brake pedal is pressed, the inner brake lamps light. The underdash fuse/relay box also contains the 10A TURN BACK fuse which feeds power to the hazard switch and the turn signal relay. Relay output is fed to the combination switch and turn signal power is applied to the selected middle tail light. The fourth fuse in the underdash fuse/relay box is the 15A HAZARD fuse which feeds power to the hazard switch and turn signal relay. When the hazard switch is set, the turn lamps on both sides begin flashing.

Tail lights work but not brake lights 93 toyota camry


The brake light side of the bulbs is powered by the brake switch and travels thru the turn signal switch.
If the third brake light works, I would guess the problem is in the turn signal switch.

Both brake lights and 3rd light in back window fail to light when brake is applied. tail lights do work when headlights are on.


it can be a few problems but i would start by checking the fuses. after that look under the dash where the brake pedal is. you will see a switch there that toggles on when you apply the brakes. i have to mention one other thing because i've had experience with it. check to make sure the bulbs are good. unless your car is equipped with a warning system or you check the brake lights often they may all be burned out over a period of time without you knowing it. a small trick to that is whenever you are backing up or near a something that you can see the back of your vehicle... apply the brakes... if you don't see lights on one or both sides it's time to start changing bulbs.
the tail lights working is independent of the brake lights as generally if it's the same bulb it will have two filiments.

When brakes are applied parking and dash board lights come on.when headlights are on,brake lights and tail lights do not work.very first symptom was an intermittent tail or brake light out indicator...


you might have an open ground wire on your brake/tail lights .. when you apply the brakes then power would flow thru the brake light (not see ground) so would then provide power backwards thru the parking light (common ground open) to all the other things connected to the parking lights .. like the other parking lights and dash ... when you turn power on to those things (headlights on) then there is 12 volts on both sides of the light .. thats why the lights quit working ... if the missing ground is the problem then most of the lights that are improperly turning on should be at a lowered brightness level.. interesting problem .. its also possible to have a brake light bulb that has the common ground open inside or not making connection with its socket .. i would start by removing the brake lamps and see if the problem goes away .. if it does look for a broken ground or damaged lamp ..

Need to replace right rear brake light bulb. can't get into the area.


Is it the rear tail light itself, or the side marker? I may have the same issue if its the side marker. However, the tail light itself is simple, remove the panel in the trunk side, and there are three seperate light fixtures, the bottom being the main tail light, the middle is the signal indicator and the top is the upper brake light.
