It's probably not the fuse if it's only one side. The fuse will power both tail lights. I would check the bulb first.

Good Luck!

Indeed, remove the taillight with a phillips screw driver, twist the bulb holder from its socket and remove the bulb, the installation is opposite removal.

The fuse box should be located on the driver side under the dash - it will either be on the firewall just left of the brakepedal (or clutch, if manual) - or in the glove compartment. It is best to replace all bulbs, fuses, and relays. If the problem persists, I suggest inquiring with the dealership of purchase. You may have a broken wire somewhere if the problem still exists after replacing fuses, relays and bulbs - or the switch on the dash, steering column may be bad, and need replaced. This is a fairly new vehicle so I doubt that is the problem - so replace the bulbs first, as well as the fuses, and relays.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

No tail lights on my 2008 ford escape. driver rear blinker wasn't working. replaced bulb, but when i turn on the blinker both blinkers are blinking...front and back...


Not sure I follow your story.
The front and rear turn signal should blink on one side. If the tail lamps are not working, it could be a fuse or a problem with the wiring. And the tail lamps are on the same circuit as the front parking lamps.

The tail lights do not work. The headlights, blinkers, and brake lights work. I checked the fuses and they are all good.


It can be faulty tail light bulb or its issue with tail light control switch or its wiring's are short.

Check the voltage at fuse slot of tail light.Do you receive 12 volt there.If not,then it says tail light switch is not receiving power supply.

2009 ford escape turn signals and brake lights work but no taillights checked bulbs look good no where in owners mannual does it list tailight fuse or location


I think your problem locating the fuse may be because Ford refers to the lights you are describing as "PARK" lamps, instead of "TAIL" lamps. The PARK fuse is Fuse #22 (15 Amp) located in the Smart Junction Box (SJB) in the center of the dash.

HINT: This same fuse also protects the circuits your front park lamps, if they are working, the fuse is not blown.

2008 ford f250: rear passenger brake,tail and blinker not working. the front blinker and side marker light on mirror works. dash blinker is blinking very fast


could be the tail lite housing. or the ground on the frame rail back near that location. remove the assembly till its hanging by its wires and remove the bulb. using a test lite probe the socket with the flasher on see if it blinks. if not go down under the rear of the truck and unplug the connector for both tail lites and do the same probe each connector on the harness that goes forward till your test lite starts to blink if it does there then the tail lite assembly is bad if not then repost and ill lead you further

No tail lights and no interior lights, brake and hazard work


check for the complete fuse box and search for short circuits. Check the fuses and the amps of each. Did you change the battery for a new one? Did you install any device not OEM? An alarm? Check the cable system. If this is ok, scan it.

99 mercury mystide had rear running light broken


If the driver's side tail light is working, it's not a fuse. Use a test light to check for power at the bulb holder. One terminal will be for tail light, the other for brake/turn light. If the is constant power for tail light, replace bulb. If no power, trace wiring from bulb holder to driver's side junction. Probable broken wire between the two tail lights.

Blinkers


If you can turn the blinker on left or right and the light comes on but doesn't blink......Open the drivers door, there is a fuse box, On the side of the dash.. The relay willl be a small silver canister looking relay in with the fuses.. put your finger on it and turn the blinker on.. you should feel and hear a click...( With the key in the on position ).. That is what needed replaced if it doesn't keep clicking...Thats the turn signal relay... What makes it blink.......Hope this helps..
Please rate this solution if it helps... Thank You.....
