SOURCE: 2003 VW BEETLE LEFT BRAKE LIGHT DOES NOT WORK WHEN

These cars were very well known to have bad grounds at the tail lamps. I would check the grounds to be sure they are still viable and check the wires to the tail lamps to be sure they haven't corroded.

SOURCE: the tail light on one side goes off when the brake

Bad connection or bad bulb. look at bulbs very closely and make sure both elements in intact. clean any corosion in sockets with battery terminal cleaner and grease with a high temp grease.

SOURCE: bulb has been replaced...tail light

It sounds like a ground wire problem. Try to trace the ground wire from the passenger side. Look for a broken wire or a corroded ground connection.

Tail lights work but not brake lights 93 toyota camry


The brake light side of the bulbs is powered by the brake switch and travels thru the turn signal switch.
If the third brake light works, I would guess the problem is in the turn signal switch.

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.

I have a 99 Jeep Cherokee limited and when I turn my lights on my tails don't work but when I apply the brakes the passenger side comes on. I replaced blubs and sockets.


Had a similar problem in mine. When I applied brakes while head lights were on, the the light would go off completely. There is a computer chip in the tail light assembly that tends to go bad causing the light to malfunction. I just bought a new tail light assembly from eBay and now it works perfectly. As easy as putting in a new bulb but you just have to unplug electric terminal from the light and plug in new light once received.

EF Civic Brake light turns off during braking w/lights on


The characteristic you described is almost always a ground connection that is not secure.

Check with an ohm meter the resistance between the ground at the light socket and the chassis of the car. Any resistance is an indication of a poor ground connection. Temporarily connect the return(ground) connection at the socket to the chassis using a jumper.

If all is correct with jumper in place determine poor connection location and repair.

Hope this helps?

Hi Ahunley, Sounds like you have cross the connection wires to the unit ( positive to earth & earth to positive) Try swapping the connectors over.

Hope this works.
