This sounds like you have either a blown fuse on the fuse block. or possiblly a blown fuseable link somewhere in the line. also very possible that there is a short in the wiring somewhere goin back to the lights.

We have no running tail lights we have blinkers, hazards and brake lights on our 1993 dodge Dakota, we are told its a ground wire, we need to run ground wire and need a picture with instructions please we...


blinkers and stop lights are on the same circuit-tail lamps are on another circuit-i'm going to start from zero so please be patient-do the front park lamps come on with the headlamps-have you checked the fuses-have you checked at the rear lamps with a volt meter-take the rear bulb out and try in front if fronts working-as far as the ground at the rear there should be a screw in the frame where the ground should be and there should be a ground wire coming out of the harness in the area where the harness from the front plugs into the turn signal harnesses-otherwise-you can driill a small hole in the frame and one in the truck bed underneath and run a wire between them-the bed is not grounded by being bolted onto the truck-cheers Denny

Put new after market rear bumper on my 2002 chevy Silverado 2500hd and my new license plate light has one wire and old light has 2 wire so I just connected the hot wire to new light and now my rear tail...


Check for that fuse in a fuse panel under the dash.
That second wire from the old light is a ground wire, whereas the new light's socket is case grounded if there is no ground wire for the light. If the fuse for the tail lights is good, check if the tail lights lost a ground .

My tail lights on my 1999 chevy venture work when they won't to and I think it's a ground short.. But I don't know where to look for it!


get a wiring diagram, follow this circuit, wire by wire, start @ rear, your tail lights, check each bulb, then proceed to front, along frame rail, to switch & fuse block. test for continuity & shorts, bad wires, corrosion, etc

Tail lights not working 1995 grand prix


Battery power is applied at all times through the 25A PARK LPS fuse in underhood electrical center #2. The ORG wire is connected to the headlight switch and the BRN output wire from the switch connects to the tail lights. Failure of the headlight switch also could cause the tail (running) lights to fail.

Tries to start,won't run


Have you checked that the fuel pump is "humming" in the fuel tank when the ignition is in the "on" position? If it's not,the easiest thing to check, which 99.9% of people don't know about Trackers is a fuseable link located behind your rear tail light (driver's side). If you remove the tail light find the PINK wire (on CDN ones anyway, you can check the top of the fuel tank to see what color it is) where it connects to the fuseable link, this is your power wire, if the link looks melted you won't get power to the fuel pump. Check this before you buy any parts, if it's melted cut the wire on both sides of the link and add a new piece of wire (3-4") and connect the two ends and seal it with silicone or at least electrical tape, it should start now.

Have a 1986 chey k 10 truck. having problems with running tail light. i changed all the light bulbs. brake and blinker lights work but no running tail lights.


you may have bad sockets for the tail light circuit or a wiring problem under the rear of the truck along the bumper and drivers side frame area as this area takes a beating causing the wires to wear through rubbing and braking.also check the fuses as it could be just a fuse.

THE TAIL/MARKER LIGHTS, GO FROM THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH TO THE REAR FOR THE TAIL LIGHTS & TO THE FRONT FOR PARKING OR RUNNING LIGHTS. ALL THOSE LIGHTS ARE ON THE SAME CIRCUIT, { BROWN WIRE } THE BRAKE & TURN SIGNAL WIRES GO FROM THE STOP LIGHT SWITCH & FROM THE TURN SIGNAL/HAZARD SWITCH. NO RELAY IN THE TAIL/PARK CIRCUIT. CHECK THE FUSES WITH A GOOD FUSE TESTER.

99 mercury mystide had rear running light broken


If the driver's side tail light is working, it's not a fuse. Use a test light to check for power at the bulb holder. One terminal will be for tail light, the other for brake/turn light. If the is constant power for tail light, replace bulb. If no power, trace wiring from bulb holder to driver's side junction. Probable broken wire between the two tail lights.

turn off and on head lights liston for click under hood by your battery, that clicks your tail light relay. It has 4 wires in it. with head lights on 3 wires should be hot. if only 2 wires are hot replace relay.
