Sonata tail light socket melted. attempting to replace with after market socket. red, green and black coming form vehicle.


If you have a test light or voltmeter, turn park lights on and find the one wire on vehicle that is hot-it will almost surely be red or green, as the black is surely the ground wire. Now on the new socket, you need to know this: If those bulbs are two filament bulbs (one filament for park lights, and the other filament for brake or turn or both) the brake light and the turn light will be brighter than the park lights. You can tell the difference in brightness, and the brake lights are always brighter than the tail (or park) lights.
How many bulbs are on this socket? Do you have 2-filamet bulbs or just one filament bulbs? Maybe you can figure it out by looking at the other side, see how or which lights are for tails and which for brakes.

Dim tail light.


Brake light switch under dash and actuated by the brake pedal lever is out of adjustment or faulty. Adjust or replace it and you'll have your brake lights back. The dim tail lights may just be that you have possible replaced them with the wrong bulbs or the ground to light housing is faulty.

1994 dodge dakota my headlights and tail lights and brake lights don't work my abs and parking brake lights are on my dash lights don't work either I replaced the headlight switch and still no


These are all different circuits. The brake lights are on a 10amp fuse - the headlights are on a 50amp fuse - and the parking and dash lights are on a 20amp fuse.
Do you have power going into the headlight switch and the brake light switch ?

Brake lights


Have you checked for a burned out fuse? Tail lights also (typically) have two filaments. One for parking lights and another for when the brake switch near/on the brake pedal is in the on position. This switch is another possible source of your lack of illumination. Reverse lights should/might be on a different bulb. If you have already verified that the bulbs and fuses are good, try changing/adjusting the physical switch at the brake pedal.

sounds like wireing is shorted together. you need to trace down wires and check for bad spots in wireing. also be sure and check plug if you are set up for trailer lights.

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 ..

1999 Toyota Corolla Seca - hatchback. the tail


If you put your foot on the brake, the tail lights and parking lights will still come on. Possibly your brake is sticking. Check to see if it is and if it is put WD40 for a quick fix. See a tech for them to fix your brake alignment. Good Luck!

Tail lights wont work


sounds like ground problem- remove tail lights and look for wires going to body -remove screww clean grounding area and replace- both sides. You did not say whether the lights work when car is off? With car off and brake pedal pushed is there any brake lights ? If not procede with above.
