Check the 10 amp fuse labeled "EXT". also try swapping the "TNS" relay with the horn relay. These are probably in the engine compartment relay box. Let me know if you have questions.

Testimonial: "Putting in the 10A fuse in EXT slot seems to work but it is strange there has never been a fuse there before."

    thanks for the help
    The spot labeled EXT actually had a rubber plug in it that says "don't touch". Of course I removed it anyway and put in 10A fuse and now tail lights work.
    this is very strange. I've had since new in 2002 and can't see how lights could have worked before without that fuse.

    Oops, that must have been the wrong diagram. Do you have a TNS fuse in the engine compartment? If yes, check it. If bad, take the one out of EXT and put a fresh 30 amp fuse in the TNS slot.

    If the TNS fuse was good, Do you have a "TAIL" relay there? If yes, try swapping that with another relay that fits. Leave the fuse out of EXT. That must be for a different year, and would likely set up a parallel circuit.

    If you have the 30 amp TNS fuse and the TAIL relay, the diagram below is more likely to be the correct one. Sorry for the confusion.

Back turning signals brake lights and running lights wont work but bulbs are good and connections are clean

Check your fuse block for blown fuses. If you have a test light check to see if you have power coming to the rear light assembly with your lights turned on. If not you either have a blown fuse or possibly a bad ground, or pinched wire

Check to make sure the bulbs are good. If they are make sure the fuse is not blown. If its good check for power to the rear sockets.
Let me know what you find and I'll see if I cant help you figure this out.

Dashboard and tail light is out....yet the fuses inside and outside the car, are not blown. What could this be??????

Hi Leslie, To answer your questions, 1) a fuse can look undamaged and be open circuit (blown) 2) One bulb being blown should have no effect on the other, but if both are blown, the vehicle will have no tail lights! 3) The bulb holders should have no effect on each other, but if the earthing is bad, which is possible on a vehicle which has any rust, the problem could be related. Take a short length of electrical cable and while holding one end to the outer metal housing of the bulb holder with the rear lights switched on, connect the other end to a good metal earth on the body. If the lights or light works the problem is the earth connection. Regards and happy new year John

My additional brake light is not working i have tested the brake unit and that works is there a seperate fuse for this or is it all on one fuse for all the brake lights

The third or High Mounted Brake Light runs straight off the brake light switch on the brake pedal arm. You say you tested the "brake unit"? I assume you mean the third brake light assembly, and if you get power there when someone steps on the brake pedal, then the bulbs are bad.

The power flow for the brake lights goes like this: Fuse ->Brake switch -> Turn signal switch -> Rear lights. The only difference is, if you have a 3rd brake light in your rear window, that gets its power directly from the brake switch. It does not go thru the signal switch first. So, if you are having a brake light problem, and your fuses are good, check the 3rd light in the rear window, if it lights up (assuming the bulbs are good, no one ever changes them), then the problem is most likely in the turn signal switch, hope this helps!

The right rear turn signal blinks quickly in a

I believe this car has a rear bulb that has two fillaments, one for side lights the other shared for braking and flash. sounds like a blown bulb or a bad ground connection. Check the bulb and the bulb holder and ground connection.
Turn signal blinking quickly generally indicates a blown bulb front or rear or bad connection.

Rear brake and turning lights will not work. Bulbs are good but lights won't work.

Check for blown fuse on that circuit,
Check ground connection is ok/intact at the rear light bulb sockets.

2001 Mitsubishi Diamante, No rear lights, except while braking.

Sounds like a loose connection or broken wire in the primary wiring leading or at the rear of your vehicle---first in line from the front end ---ist connection in series --wiggle it abit and recheck now if that doesn't work check the bulbs connections themselves and replace and blown bulbs ---if that doesn't work ---and it is not a relay or fuse ---there is what called a BUZZ box tool for short finding you connect it to a good ground and follow the wiring and if it lights or buzzes --most likely that's the where the problem is ---a piecing probe test --also lights up --separate tool too can tell you if you have power in a wire ---make sure any grounding to the body metal grounds have good contact too
needs 12v ground to function as well
another first check --even if you have no blown fuses --the fuse box is not cleared ---BUSS MAKE A PULLER AND BRIDGER --which you don't have to pull the fuse to see if it's good and if it has continuity across the circuit --that's sometimes a free tool up to 4 bucks --most autopart stores have a free loaner tool program --or they may oblige you if you bat your eyes and treat them well --catch them when they are not busy too --and bingo ---working tail lights ---

I now like this site ---anyone have something better phrased or another suggestion --common help trax 987 ---a dealer will charge trax out the yin yang --and fib about the cause too I'd bet

Rear Brake Lights not working, 3rd light is working

check the fuse for the stoplights. Even though the 3rd one is working it should be on a different fuse. With both of them not working even after you changed the bulb it would seem to lead to a fuse.

Left drive lights not working

It sounds like a couple of blown bulbs. Open up the light fixture where the drive lights are found and replace the bulbs.
