Try to look inside the lens inside the trunk to see if the sockets are indeed interchangeable. If they are, then someone mixed them up. You can usually twist out the bulb sockets from their round holders with a tab, and put the socket where it belongs.

01 jetta tdi , lower tail light sockets have room for 2 bulbs on each side , the inner ones light up in reverse but the outer bulbs do not light when other do like parking , stop , 4ways and so on = can...


The outer bulbs may not be used in your vehicle's application. Sometimes VW's and other European vehicles are equipped with rear lights that are used in foggy weather. They will come on when the fog lamps are activated and the switch on the dash will give the driver the option to turn on the right one or the left one depending on whether you are in a country that has left hand driving or right hand driving. The lights are there for "parking purposes" so that the vehicle can be seen in extreme fog conditions when parked on the street. If the vehicle isn't equipped with the system, the taillights may have provisions for it anyway.

Tip

One Brake Light Not Working


Inspect Brake Light Bulb: The number one reason for a brake light operation failure is a failed brake light bulb. To check this condition access the bulb by removing the rear cover located in the trunk or rear compartment. Some cars allow you to remove the entire brake light lens to retrieve the brake light bulb. Once the bulb has been removed inspect the bulb filament. If it looks broken or if the bulb is smoked the bulb needs to be replaced. If you have replaced the bulb but it still doesn't work remove the bulb. With the key in the "on" position have someone hold their foot on the brake pedal and use a grounded test light to carful test the terminals inside the light socket. One of the terminals should illuminate the test light. (Note: Do not touch the outer metal ring that holds the bulb in place for it is grounded and can blow the system fuse if connected to the inner terminals.) If the test light illuminates reinstall the brake light bulb. While the brake pedal is depressed test the outer metal ring that holds the bulb, if power is present the ground lead from the light socket is bad. If the outer ring does not illuminate the bulb has failed and replacement is required.

Scan BCM for Trouble Codes: Some cars are equipped with a body control module or BCM this onboard computer controls and lighting signals and can malfunction not allowing the electrical current to continue to the brake light circuits. This condition is rare but it can happen. If you have performed all of the tests above and all results are positive scan the BCM for trouble codes if no codes are present try replacing the BCM.

Audi A3 only inner brake lights working


You didn't mention the obvious, fuses. In many euro cars there are multiple fuses for each light circuit, side to side, and inside to outside, so check fuses, even if it looks good, they can still be bad. Switch with same amp and color fuse with any other same specs to narrow it down. Fuses can be tricky believe it or not, and I can't tell you how many times people overlook the obvious, even mechanics.
Good luck,

The two tailights in the trunk of my 2005 honda civic si do not work. the bulbs and fuse are ok. is this a civic problem


Do the lights on the trunk operate when the parking lights are on, but do not light up when you apply the brakes? If so, this is normal. Only the outer red lights are brake & parking combination lights. The ones adjacent to the reverse lights on the trunk lid are parking lights only.

If the red lights in the trunk lid are not working at all, check the red/yellow and black/silver wires where they go from the trunk lid down into the right side of the trunk area. The wiring harness for the parking and reverse lights are contained in a piece of black tubing that is connected to the passenger's side trunk hinge.

I hope this helps! Good luck!

1990 TOYOTA CAMRY-DASHBOARD ICON IN LOWER RIGHT HAND CORNER


Its telling you a brake light bulb is burnt out.

If you find that all the rear brake bulbs are working...the problem is the sensor, located in the trunk, left side, behind the left side plastic wall (Removeable). It is a 2 X 2 cream colored box. Dealer only part. $80-$100 each. Have known 6 other Camry's to have a bad sensor box. Common problem.
