Open the trunk, and remove the plastic panel that is against closest to the bumper (rear). You will see the wiring harness for the lights. It should be in a plastic tube. It will have a seam down the middle of it. You need to check the wiring at the connectors. and the grounds. Another question is, are the sockets the bulbs go in rusty? You may have to replace the sockets if they are. To me it sounds like a loose ground or wiring problem. the harness will run for both sets of lights and split by the drivers side. Your problem is between the split of the harness.

Brake light? Some bad connections to light sockets if bulbs not burned out. Of course you will need help to see brake light when brake is pushed.

Headlight switch on makes tail light dim


there must be a short circuit which powers tail lights and brake lights. probably you have a dual filament bulbs which have both brake and tail light together. check for bulb, socket/or bulb housing and harness of that light.

License plate lights do not work. Bulbs changed still does not work. The right brake light does not work. Changed bulb and plug. Turning signals work, tail lights work. All works on the left side.


Well for the license plat you might wanna check the fuse. and the brake light if one works fine then I'm sure you need a new bulb in the other side. Good luck

My left brake tail light doesnt work. It works only when my lights are off, but when my lights are on and I hit the brakes... it doesnt function. Ive taled to the dealership about this and they said I need...


They are right. The bulb has 2 filaments. One for the brake and one for the running light. One of the filaments has burned out. You only need to replace the bulb. The bulbs are inexpensive. It's just a maintainence thing. Not to worry all light bulbs burn out eventually. It's an easy fix.

Where is the fuse for the right side tail light?


hi if it is only the one bulb not working/tail light and the front light on same side is working along with number plate and other tail lights may i suggest you replace/check the bulb on defective light as if fuse had blown ? the front light on same side would not be working if you put ignition on and press brake your brake light shoul work ? if so change the bulb as the bulb has two elements inside tail light and a higher wattage element for brake light

Right brake light out; tail light works fine


most rear tail lights and turn/stop lights are the same dual filiment bulb. it is possible for your tail light to work and your brake light not to and still have a bad bulb. I would check the bulb first, your brake light works on the left yes? this would mean that the fuse is fine
