Question about 2006 Chevrolet Express

2 Answers

2006 Chevy Express. No rear park/running lights or lic. plate light. Everything else works fine. Wires appear OK as well as ground is grounded. Bulbs are good as well as fuses. Any ideas? Front lights work fine. Feel like running a wire from the front ones?

I have a 97 suzuki sidekick and tailights work on and off right side works then stops working then left side works and licence plate light doesnt work at all i believe its a ground but dont know where to...


ok the full wiring is online, need that, a real FSM? for 1996 , same as 97
but not same 4sp tranny. i got confused, but seems the tail(parking) lamps are dead. you turn the Head lamps 1 click and some lights are dead.
there are a huge number if lamps in this circuit. Front and rear corners, all side lights x4, and dash maps, cig, lamp , ash tray lamp. radio lamp. shifter lamp (A/T) . and lic. plate.
for sure its wiring, if any lamp gloes, fully the HL (head light ) switch is good. so the wiring is bad to those lamps. the left rear has the trailer connector behind left rear Tail lens. see that. is it molested?
inspecting all 4 corners of care usually reveals collision damage , and
wires never repaired. you can use a volt meter to find this easy, have one?

I cannot find the fuse for the license plate light


The lic plate light are on the same fuse as the park lights so if they work the fuse is good, try removing the bulb assembly and look for things like a bad ground caused by dirt or rust, if you have a 12 volt test light you can check to see if you are getting any power to the light socket or the wires leading up to the sockets and you can trace back to where the problem is.

Both rear turn signals have stopped working, front are fine? Is it the switch?


the switch controls both front and rear signal lights.the wires just T off in the harness to go both ways.you don`t say but are the rear bulbs ok.there is 2 filaments in the bulbs one for tail lights and one for signals/brake lights.so the brake lights work if so then the bulbs are good.if not then the bulbs may be the problem.it could also be a wire feed/ground problem that you will have to trace from the sockets back through the system with a test light checking for power and ground.

Tail lights dont work


Oh boy, Chevy uses 3 important wires to make up their tail light harness. Brown is used for your parking lights and yellow and green are your signal and brake light wires, yellow one side, green the other. You have some seriously crossed wires. Start with tracing the lic plate lite since that works. Make sure it leads into your main parking lights and the ground wires from these tail lites aren't cut. The lic place lite will work with just power because the body of the lite is grounded with the bumper. Then make sure that there is power to the signal wires. You can do this with a test light and the signal light switched on. You don't need anyone to step on the brakes since it's the same signal, only interepted. Most importantly, Remove the tail lites and check grounds!! Good luck

No parking lights, fuse keeps blowing.


There is a ground not connected or a wire open that is causing it to blow

Chevy S10 Tail Light issue


CHEVY S-10 TAIL LIGHTS PROBLEM RESOLVED...It seems Chevy engineered a ground shorting clip located under the left rear bumper area. It looks like a connector for trailer wiring harness, but in actuallity is a metal shorting clip which ties 5 wires together. They are all the ground wires for the tail lights. Then one single small wire runs to ground completeing the circuit. Problem is that this one wire is not tough enough to be a strain relief for the grounding plug and over time the ground wire wears, leaving intermittent lighting problems. FIX IS TO SPLICE THE GROUND WIRE INTO ONE OF THE FIVE OTHER WIRES AND USE PLASTIC TY WRAP FOR STRAIN RELIEF. This fixes no tail lights, intermittent rear signals, and other significant problems. I just got done making this same repair on a 2000 s-10 and everything works fine. Since it is the strain on the single ground wire connected to the connector that leads to failure, it is best to tie a new ground or clip the ground wire coming out of the plug and resplice it into one of the other five wires. Does not matter which one since electrically it makes no difference; they are all gound wires. BUT only one wire completes the connection and that is the problem. Really good engineering Chevy! The location is under left rear of bed in wiring harness right before the split. The connector is blue or green. Take the cover off to see the metal shorting clip. Also note the ground wire coming out of the plug/connector and runs about 8 inches to frame. If this is not hooked up you will have tail light issues. If you register on Autozone .com you can access wiring schematics for free. BL
