You have the switch under the hood on the transmision box. It indicates when you put in the reverse. You can disconnect it and short circuit it with piece of wire and then see if the lights will turn on. If they thurn on, then you must change that switch. If not, the problem is somwher else.

Tail lights not working on 97 Honda Accord


First check the bulbs as they fail most often. once the bulbs are tested and or replaced and they still don't work. check the park fuse in the fuse box under the dash. when you change it watch it as it might blow right when you plug it in. Some radio installers se the same wire in the radio and get it connected wrong and so unplug any aftermarket radio. and then see if it holds a fuse. You didn't state if the running lights including the tail lights are not working? If the parking lights and dash lights are working and you still have no taillights. The light fixtures them selves as you take them out to change bulbs may have a bad connection. With the lights on and the mounting fixture hanging by he wire. move the bulb and the wirs around it pushing and pulling to see if you can find the bad connection. the light sockets do go bad and they can be purchased at most auto parts stores. Lets say they still don't work. under the trim in the trunk, near the trunks latch in the bottom part remove this trim and thiers the light out module. this module does many things so its expensive. It's suppose to trun a warning light on the dsah that thiers a light not working. Sometimes if the bulb has been out a long time or the wire crodded in the sockets or even at the plug for the module. with only the parking lights on and a test light. go into the wire side. of the plug still plugged into the module. with the key off and removed. their should be three wires that light the test light. One is the wire from the lightswitch fuse the other two are the two taillights. if only one wire lights the light you found the problem if the taillights still don't come on. Find the wires that do light the lights and conect them to the wire that comes on when you turn the lights on and it's fixed just without the bulb out feature working.

Tail lights do not work on a 2000 lexus rx 300 bulbs are fine, all other lights work fine


You may have a fried fuse. Look in your owners manual to find out which fuse it is in the fuse box diagram. If that is the problem make sure to use the same amperage fuse to replace the burned one with. I fried fuse is usually a sign that you have a short somewhere. But they can also fry for other reasons such as excess moisture somewhere. Sometimes they just burn from age and fatigue. It may solve it to just replace the fuse, but if there really is a short, the new fuse will fry too.

How do i change burned out parking lights on 1996 toyota corolla


The burnt out parking light can only be accessed thru the trunk.

Open the trunk and remove the panel covering/ protecting the bulb compartment.

Then you turn the bulb to the left. Easy does it.

Good luck.

2005 hyundai Accent, can't shift out of park and no brake lights


may want to check the brake pedal switch located on top of the brake pedal arm. If all fuses looks good, replace the brake pedal switch, which can also cause to not shift out of park.

Brake lights not working


Not even the third eye? then the fuse is blown or all the bulbs are out or the brake light switch on the break pedal is bad wire off or broken( it breaks right off the plug then crosses then blows the fuse as the loose broken wire hits the brake pedel arm. Test the break pedal switch first if the third eye doesesnt work either. no power with a test light the fuse is blown or the wire broke ( the wire goes straight to the switch from the fuse and doesnt go anywhere elese. the other wire if hot should light the lights. Most of these wont come out of park without this working as the wire also turns on the park release but some Fords the park release sticks released and Ford made em that way as they didnt like the brake to get out of park law. If the brake lights dont work maybe you ought not be able to get out of park anyway till its fixed. the switch is hot on both wires with the switch pused down and the lights dont still work go after the third eye first if the bulbs are bad change em before you do the rest of the work. on cars with yellow turn signals the brake lights all work on the same wire but red only use three wires, but you didnt say the turn signales didnt work if they work and they are red you r on the way to the turn signal switch as the brake switch powers the turn switch with power then it splites it fot the two lights and adifferent switch circuit for the front hooks them all together for hazard. yellow turns in the back or even separt bulbs can mean blown bulbs ther too its old enought for all the bulbs to fail and the runs still work.

Trunk light and dash light always on


I would have to agree it's an electrical problem. It might simply be a defective trunk lid latch switch. Here's the wiring diagram:

brake switch on the pedal bad.bad relay. do you have a second fuse box if so check it. look at the wiring see if it is frayed or chafed check the connections.check all the fuses not just the ones labeled brakes.switch the relay with one that you know is good like turn signal and see if the turn signal works then check brakes.use a 12 volt test light check the brake switch and probe the wires. hope this helped if not write back and i'll give you more ideas.

No brake lights, fuses keep blowing and wont shift out of park


I would look for a wiring short in the trunk at the taillamp area, or, inspect the sockets for the taillamp bulbs for corrosion. In any case, you have a short circuit in the trunk area, also check the wire that comes from the body & goes up the trunk hinge on the driver side; that wire may be chafed, and it may be shorting out. Hope this helps; please get back to me if you need any further assistance.
