Horizontal break light does not work in my pre-loved 1999 NewBeetle. I dont think there is a fuse in the fuse slot if it does in fact use a fuse. If it is a fuse problem what ampere should be used and where do I put it ?

The high mount brake light on my used 99 Beetle didn't work when I got it, either. I had to disassemble the whole thing and resolder the electrical contact back onto the circuit board then glue the cover back on - it was already cracked when I first took the assembly off the car, otherwise I wouldn't have been able to even get to the circuit board.

So unless you're handy with disassembling glued plastic components and repairing broken solder joints, you'd be well advised just to replace the whole unit. After checking to be sure it's getting power and still not working, of course.

My reverse lights dont come on while in reverse and i dont need to have my foot on the break to shift out of park.


Yes it could be a relay, but it could also be two isolated problems. The shift will have a switch inside to send a signal either through a relay or directly to the reverse lights. I would suspect the switch. The switch itself may be good but it is not being depressed for some reason. The brake also has a switch. It may be working for the break light but not for lock out of the starter.

Brake light fuse


yes it could be a fuse, could be a short to ground in the wiring, or it could be the bulb try checking the bulb first, then fuse if its all your break lights not working. but if only one isnt working its gotta be wiring or the bulb.

Fuse keeps blowing dash lights and tail lights dont work jeep cherokee sport 1999


There are several fuses involved. I need to know which one(s). As for the taillights, the primary power source is 20A fuse 17 in the power distribution center. The tan/blk wire connects to the headlamp switch which, in park position, applies +12 volts through 10A fuse 7 in the junction block to the left tail light. The headlamp switch, in park position, also apples +12 volts through 10A fuse 23 in the junction block to the right tail light.

I need to know which fuse is blowing the instrument lights so you will have to follow up

Both break lights went out at the same time. Think it may be the fuse #15 wondering what else it could be. And, how hard is it to change the fuse? Do I need to disconnect battery?
