Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the sight. Since you know the bulbs and fuses are good, you need to check the wiring harness. Check closely around the bulb sockets as this is a likely place for a bad wire. Try shaking the wires as you may have a loose connection. You might need a voltage meter to test to see if there is any current in the wires. I know it is no easy job, but this is what you will need to do since the bulbs and fuses are good. You either have a loose connection, short, or bad wire. Thanks for using FixYa and if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Rhigt tail light change how


1Check the fuse. A blown fuse usually causes both lights to go out. On newer cars, the tail lamps can be fused separately and/or each bulb or shared circuit can be fused. A fuse can be blown due to other problems, so you'll need to check more than just the fuse, but it's the right place to start. Look in your owner's manual to determine where the fuse box is located in your car.
2Look at the tail lamp wiring. These are the wires that lead to the tail lights, located inside the lid of the trunk. Open the trunk and take a look. You can see where the wires should connect in order for the electrical system to properly work. If a wire has come loose, reattach it.
3Check the taillight bulbs. If the fuse and wiring look right, the bulbs themselves might be the problem. To check them, unscrew the taillight lenses from the outside using a screwdriver.
4Check the taillight lenses. Whether or not you were able to fix the problem of your tail lights working correctly by examining the fuse, wiring and light bulb, it's important to check the lenses as well to make sure they're not cracked or broken.

2004 Toyota Highlander, have no tail-lights, all other lights work ?


With the car jacked up and on safety stands, follow the wiring harness from the taillights to the front of the car. The wire is probably pinched, burned or shorted somewhere along the way. Did you have any work done on the bottom chassis area recently? Does sound like a pinched wire.

Why taillights do not come on, but the brakelights and signal lights work


check the fuses for a burnt fuse. the taillight circuit has its own fuse and wiring. its possible the headlight switch is bad but this doesn`t happen very often.

How to change a tail light bulb in a honda element


Open the hatch and the tailgate.

Remove the two mounting screws with a Phillips-head screwdriver, and remove the taillight assembly from the body by pulling it back.

Determine which of the three bulbs is burned out: brake/taillight, turn signal light or backup light. (I assume you’ve already determined this)

Remove the socket by turning it one-quarter turn counterclockwise.

Pull the bulb straight out of its socket.

Push the new bulb straight into the socket until it bottoms.

Reinstall the socket into the light assembly by turning it clockwise until it locks.

Test the lights to make sure the new bulb is working.

When reinstalling the taillight assembly, first place the two pins in the holes in place. Tighten the two mounting bolts.

Hope this is helpful to you.

Replacement of rear outside tail light assembly


If you're asking how do you change a taillight bulb, then follow this procedure:

Open the trunk lid.

Disconnect the connectors from the taillights (taillight bulb connectors are visible by looking inside the trunk at the back of the tail lamps.) There may be an interior trunk trim panel that you have to take off but in most cases its just a series of thumb screws that hold them in.


Brake Lights/Taillights: 21/5 W

Rear Turn Signal Light: 21 W

Back-up Light: 21 W

Rear Side Marker Light: 5 W


Turn the bulb sockets 45 º counterclockwise to remove the bulbs.


If you're removing the taillamps with the bumper off there are 3 nuts and screws that hold the taillight to the rear panel of the car that have to come off from the inside of the trunk.
Remove the nuts and screws, then remove the taillight.

hope that answers your question
