OK, this indicates to me that the wiring may be faulty.

Recommend taking to an auto electric shop to trace the wires to see if they can find the problem.

Modern electrical systems in automobiles and light trucks can be very difficult to trace beyond the fuse box.

Good luck on this repair.

Tail lights not working

Not for tail lights.
GeT a 12 Volt probe screwdriver with the handle that lights up or volt meter. Remove the bulb turn on tail lights clip to any good ground and put the probe tip on the bump at the bottom of the socket and it should lite up. Now clip ground to side wall of socket and probe both bumps in the center one bump is tail the other is brake. Have someone push on brakes and see if they light when on one bump then check tail on other bump. DO NOT TOUCH THE SIDE WITH CENTER PROB OR IT WILL SHORT BE CAREFUL. this will tell you where the problem is,

Also check fuse holder.
leave fuse in clip to ground turn on tail light and probe both ends of fuse for power.

Hope this helps Mike

I have no blinkers or brake lights on my 2010 kenworth 900 deisal I have already replaced the blinker switch but nothing fuses under the dash are good also

Dangerous situation. Do you have any tail lights? running lights?
I would guess you have a power connection somewhere before it gets to either of the switches (including brake), a main relay, or separate relays for both brake and blinkers. Possibly a fuse that looks good is not. Volt-ohm meter is good at checking those things.

Brake lights and turn signals work, tail lights will not come on. Please help

The brake lights and tail lights use the same ground. So if the brake lights work the ground is good.
There is a relay and then a fuse for each side.
I would check the sockets with a meter to see if the circuits have power with the parking lights on.

check to make sure that you have the correct bulb in the correct socket in both left and right tail lights. dual filament bulbs have to contacts on the base of the bottom of the bulb. make sure the socket that you are inserting them into also has two contacts. if that doesn't work then you need to get a test light so you can find out if power is going to the bulb housing and all ground. check all fuses also with amp meter

Hello sir. I have a 95' Buick Regal. Whenever I turn the headlights on the rear brake light fuse blows out and the tail lights stop working. The headlight switch has already been replace with a new one...

Well, yes, look for damaged and grounded running light and brake light wiring, start at the tail light itself, I usually use a circuit breaker in place of the fuse, for diagnostic purposes and then follow along the wiring with an inductive amp meter. the meter will react until you pass the damaged area, at which time you get nothing. It is likely that the issue is not the headlight switch, as two switches do the same thing..

My brake lights do not come on when i press the brakes. i have changed the switch for the brake lights but I still get nothing, which wire do I need to change because the brake light wire on my 2000 Esteem...

If you have a meter.... check the bulb socket for 12V DC with someone applying the brake or watch for a 12V DC pulse on the meter when the meter leads are on the socket contact with the emergency flashers on. (+) lead to socket contact and ( - ) lead to chassis ground. If you have the 12V DC on the socket contact then there is a problem with the chassis ground wire.
The brake light socket has 2 terminals. One is for the tail light 12V DC power when the headlights are on and the other one is 12V DC only when the brake lights are supposed to be on. (i.e pulse hazard or brake applied light on)

Also check the BRAKE light fuse in the fuse box located on the front of the left kick panel wall drivers side with a black cover. (4" x 2.5") There is also a fuse and relay box on the left side of the engine compartment. (4" x 7")

The wire color connected to your NEW brake switch that leaves the switch for the tail lights is the same color on the rear of the car and terminates at the tail light assy quick disconnect connector.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Get yourself a cheap multimeter and a 12v test lamp. Start checking what has power and what does not. Follow your wires where you can. Check all the connectors. Use it to double check your fuse and your new switch.

Make sure the negative contacts on your brake lights have a good earth. The continuity or ohms meter on the multimeter is good for this.

Sounds like you have done a good job so far. When you have check all the possible problems check the impossible ones :)
