Look in your owners manual, see how to replace tail light bulbs. If they are removed from the light assembly and changed from within the trunk, then open the trunk, turn on the lights and pull the bulbs out one by one. You may find that more than one bulb is used on each side for the tail light, and though it looks good from the outside, one could well be burnt out. Read the instructions closely, you may have to turn the light socket 30 degrees or so to pull it out of the asembly.

    concidentally my light is on also. I saw that my license plate bulbs were burned out. I replaced them but the light is still on. Not sure what is going on. Do the lines at the bottom of the indicator mean it's just the rear lights?......not sure....

How do i fix a running light warning that has appeared on my dashboard?

You find the bulb that is not alight and replace it Claire. Best way is to check it at night with a second person or park in front of shop windows. Check front sidelights, daytime running lights, repeaters, headlights main and dipped, indicators left and right. Then turn the car around and check rear lights, left and right indicator and brake lights. Also pay attention to the high level brake light in the back window. I had that out for 6 months and it drove me mad trying to find out why my warning light was on. I checked all the lights three times with my late wife in the bedroom window and both of us in contact on home phone to cell phone. When I found out the reason, alerted by a friend, I so wanted my wife to know the reason why, but she had died 3 months previously.

What does it mean when a wrench light comes on the dashboard?

It is a service light. It can come on for a variety of reasons depending on make and model. Anything from a burned out bulb to an oil change. I would suggest having the computer scanned to find out the reasoning behind the light coming on.

Indicators not working

That is a common problem when one of the turn signals bulbs is out. check the light bulbs on the side that is not working or the side that the dashboard flashes quicker. replace the light bulb front or rear. take a good look at the light bulb filament inside. some times is not easy to detect some other time the light bulbs will be light black powder inside if they are bad. if the light bulb does not fix it also check for the fuses may always be fuse as well.

Dim Dashboard Lights

I think this indicates that you have an exterior light out. Check the tail lights, brake lights and the three bulbs that are mounted at the top of the rear window.

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!
