When you say "rear" do you mean the trunk/boot? There is a switch on the trunk latch, at the bottom of the trunk opening. Look for a bad switch or a pinched wire behind the latch.

I just bought the car the turn signals work in the front but not in the back whats the problem?


Have you checked the bulbs already?
Don't know what kind of car you are dealing with here.
Most vehicles - the brake lights and rear turn signals share the same electrical circuit to the rear tailights. Usually the turn signal switch will separate which signal goes to the back.
Do your brake lights work? Is there a High mounted stop lamp and does it work?
I have seen a Hazard Switch be ON and fuse blown causing the Hazard Flasher to be inop - which prevented the turn signals from working. Turning OFF the hazard flasher brought back the T/S.
Check the rest of the lights - see what does and doesn't work - and do the front turn signals flash? Stay On? Or flash really slow?
Let me know what you find out and if this helps you at all.

Only rear driver side brake light will not work when braking need help


Pastor Norman, Pastor Dave here.
Since you already replaced the left rear brake light bulb and that didn't help, please take that bulb socket out again as you did before, and find a way to test the bulb contact for electricity when the brake lights are on. You should get 12 volts out of the "hot" metal contact.
If the other two lights are on, and you have no current in the socket, you either have a bad socket, or a broken wire somewhere.
One way is to go back a few inches and skin off the insulation of the brake light wire and see if there is current back a few inches from the socket. Cover with tape when you finish.
If you decide to cobble a solution, you could run a good wire from the other brake light that works and splice it in to the dead wire.
Be Blessed.

No brake lights on rear of truck. Turn signals work and brake light on top with cargo light works but not on rear of truck


Brake light on top works tells me the switch at the pedal is ok. Turn signals working tells me that the turn signal filaments have power.

I would try changing the bulbs and if that doesn't work have an electrical shop trace the wires and check for power on the brake light circuit in the back.

Passenger side brake light does not work. I


There might be something wrong with the electrical connector behind the panel on the drivers side in the rear... check there with a test light.
Check your light socket in the rear with a test light while having someone pulse the brake up front so you can see if you have brake current there.
If you have brake current at the socket check your ground there and your connections.
The brake circuit in that car is the same on the right left and third stop... you have orange turn signals so the brake lights there are single purpose.
Look for the problem with your test light... you will find it and it is located in the rear of the vehicle... not up front.

ABS light on, needs rear speed sensor and traction control light is on, Do I need to replace these?


Mine comes on too on my 2005 Sequoia and fixing it doesn't make it go away... it comes back on after a few weeks.

Also I have fixed my rear wiper/ heat/ electrical twice and it only lasts a few weeks before the problem starts all over. Something is wrong and we should have to keep spending $$.

When I use my left turn signal, it blinks really fast on the steering column. The bulb is not bad, but rear turn signal does not work.


This is a very common problem on this vehicle and is mainly caused by the tilt steering wheel. The wire harness hidden under the steering column cover was designed with little to no slack. Over time the wires will come loose and no longer make the connection. If you are familiar with wiring and electrical work, this is easy to fix on your own. If not, take it to a mechanic and tell them where to look for the problem first. Hope this helps.
