Taillights are not working. Brakes lights and turn signals fine, but no taillights. Checked the fuse and it's okay. Any ideas?


Try unplugging the connector from the brake light switch( under the dash on the brake pedal arm) Install a jumper in the plug and see if the brake lights come on. If they do, the switch is bad. The new switch must be adjusted correctly or the brake lights will stay on all the time. This circuit has power even when key switch is off.

I have a standard 4 flat trailer plug on my truck but my trailer plug is also a 4 flat plug but has two brown wires going to one prong. how do i hook them together to make all my lights on trailer work


The 4-wire flat plugs usually have a white (ground), green (right brake/turn) yellow (left brake/turn) and brown (taillights - left and right). If your brake and turn lights work but the taillights don't, check the plugs (trailer and truck sides) for corrosion, and chek both the trailer and truck wiring harnesses for chafed insulation and bare conductors on the brown wires. Likewiae if the taillights work and the brake/turn lights don't, perform the same checks on those wires. And last but not least, be sure that the white wires (truck and trailer) are grounded well to the truck body and trailer frame.

When I turn my lights on my tail lights work but when I hit my brakes the don't light up I have a 2001 vw beetle????


the brake lights don't light up or the taillights don't light up? the brake lights are brighter than the tailights so the tailights won't show up whenbrakes are applied. if no lights work when brakes are applied then check for a bad ground at the light assembly.

When I turn on my lights I have no taillights. And when I apply the brake I have no brake or taillights. But I do have brake lights when I apply the brake with the lights off.

The three wires to the tow lights have been cut, and i cant find where in the harness they are cut can i bypass it all and just rerun new wires?


Yes. But do you have seperate yellow turn signal lights in the rear or do the turn signals work independant of the brake lights? If yes then you need to wire in a taillight converter. It takes your seperate left & right turn signals combines them with your brake lights on 2 wires instead of 3 leaving you with your normal 4 wires in total instead of 5. 1 Left turn & brake light. 1 Right turn & brake. 1 Taillight. 1 Ground. = 4 wires in total. If you dont have seperate rear turn signals just find left turn wire in taillight assembly, Right turn wire & Taillight & a good ground & you are done. On trailer plug yellow is left, green is right ,brown is tailight & white is ground.

Taillights won't go off.


Is it the tail lights or the brake lights? If its the brake lights then there is a switch down by your brake peddle that the lever pushes up against to keep your brakes off when there not being applied. If that switch goes out or is out of adjustment the the brake lights will stay on. Hope that helps
