Hi there!

If you have uprated the bulbs, you have probably melted the switch contacts. Common problem with fords.

Nothing wrong with checking the fuse, but the switch contacts melt before that blows.

If they test ok, check wiring and earths local to the lights.

( If this hits the spot - please rate as Fixya! Thanks)

On a 2006 madza 6, the front passager side only, lights do not work. But the blinker still works, why?


so you mean the signal works at the very front or the side light bulb(on the side of the lens assembly) that is not working.the side light is fed power using the same wire that feeds the front marker light.if you mean the light within the signal bulb is not working then the bulb could be burnt as the park light has its own wiring separate circuit and filament within the same bulb.

Tail lights don't work all other lights working fuses good any suggestions


ARE YOU SURE THE BULBS ARE GOOD? DO THE FRONT PARKING LIGHTS WORK? IF THE FRONT PARKING LIGHTS WORK THAT MEANS THE SWITCH IS O.K. IF THE BRAKE LIGHTS WORK RIGHT THAT MEANS THE GROUND IS O.K. GOOD LUCK

My 2003 Pontiac Vibe tail lights do not work. The brake lights work. I checked the tail fuse. Turn signals work also. Why no tail lights?


Your turn signal lights and brake lights are the same lights . Question : do the front parking lights work ? The front and rear running lights or parking lights are all on the same circuit and fuse . If the front lights work , and the rear lights don't , make sure the bulbs are good first . If OK , I would suspect the problem is either a bad ground in the rear taillight wiring harness or a bad connection in the rear taillight connector Itself .

Turn signals in front don't work


the lowers being gone DOES affect the front ones, as they work on a closed circuit. Until you replace them, you'll have no front signail lights.

2001 dodge neon tail lights inop


looking at your schematics and , you say tail lights don't work , you didn't mention if front parking lights and license plate lights are working , they all come from the same source , a black /yellow wire , a good clue if front work and rear don't , please advise .if fronts work then you have a open circuit somewhere between junction S118 (near breakout for left headlamp) and rear sockets.
