Tail light out 2005 kia spectra


Most cars these day's have separate bulbs for each function ie: tail, turn, stop & back up. Turn the light's on & double check the position of the bulb on the side that is working and go from there, also before you pull your hair out check your fuse's because some model's have a fuse for each light ie: Lt low beam, Lt high beam ect... hope this help's you. Good luck!

1999 volkswagon passat brake lights power door locks and power windows are not working


Check your fuse box for a blown fuse first.1 fuse controls power windows and locks, not 100% that it controls the brake light problem. I believe it is fuse 14, check your manual for sure. If you dont have your manual shine a flashlight on your fuses and you sometimes can tell if they are blown.

Brake lights
there is an actuator above your pedal that activates when you press the brakes. I have had these go out on one of my cars, difficult to replace but cheap.

If none of this works then you will have to go to the dealer because they wont tell you what the codes mean.

Brake lights


Yes, check the fuses. It should tell you which it is on the fuse box cover. Or you could just pull all the fuses out. Also you may have a loose earth connection.

Left rear brake light stopped working but bulb and fuses are OK.


These are Dual Function Bulbs. They control the Parking Lights and the Brake Lights. This Bulb is Burnt out on the Brake Coil inside the Bulb. I have actually seen Bulbs that were Bad But you could not Tell by jast looking at them. It should be fine with a New Bulb. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
