Probably just need a new bulb..if its not a lot of trouble you can switch the good bulb over to the other side and see if it works there, then you will know it is just the bulb... make sure you get the same kind of bulb that you took out.. this is an easy fix for anybody for just the cost of the bulb

I'm having trouble with my brake lights on my 07 Colorado both brake lights dont work the passenger side running light works but the driver side doesn't both turn signals work the high mount brake light...


There is a module on the passenger side behind the rear wheel mounted to the body. It goes bad. On the drivers side is where the grounds are located, on or close to the frame. Check these first.

Got power on all my lights except the brake light in the back on the passenger side in my 1993 dodge shadow 2.2 engine


I doubt there are two separate switches. I also doubt that there are two wires running from up front to the back. There is most likely a single wire going to the brake light on the driver side and one going from there to the passenger side. It either this wire or a connector that you should be looking at, assuming that you have replaced the globe!

2011 ford feista se brake light out on drivers side. Running light and blinker work. Have replaced bulb and socket with same results what do I do now?


Did you try the passenger side brake bulb in the driver side socket (maybe the new lamp is bad)??

If it works, then the problem is either a bad ground connection / wire at / between chassis and the shell of brake lamp socket, or bad 12 volt wire at / between the common passenger 12 volt brake light wire in the harness to the center contact on the brake lamp socket.

My suggestion is if the brake lamp wire is ONLY for brakes - not the directional too, simply add a new wire spliced into the passenger side brake light wire and extend it to the brake light wire closest to the new socket that you recently installed on the driver side. Disconnect the vehicle brake wire from the new socket and wire nut it off or tape it up (so it can't short out if it somehow becomes energized again) and splice this new wire to the new socket.

Test & you're done!

The passenger side brake light, and passenger side (front and back) window control doesn't work is it a fuse?


Well, the short answer is no.
The lights and windows are are different fuses.
There's a slight chance you have a problem with a ground wire on that side, but I doubt the two problems are related.
I would check the light for power and ground, and look at the window switches for power and ground. The windows are powered thru the driver switch on most cars.

Emergency Flashers totally out, Rear lights malfunctioning


Check the ground on the passenger side rear lights, it's likely bad. As for the hazards, sounds like a bad flasher or fuse.
