Question about 2004 Mitsubishi Diamante

1 Answer

All rear lights went out, brake lights work

I own a 2004 Diamante VR-X. I noticed on Saturday, that all my rear lights went out (including the lic. plate light), but the brake lights still work. Everything was working fine on Wednesday.

Checked the fuses, everything is fine there. Any other suggestions?

    Thank you, I will check that out!

    This car is so hard for me to work on! This is the first non-american vehicle I have owned and it isn't even simple to change the lights in this car!

    The brakes are easy at least!

Might be the multifunction switch on the steering column. Also called a combination switch.

    my pleasure I sure hope it works. On these vehicles sometimes they have a LIGHT CONTROL MODULE that can be a problem too. If you call the parts dept at your dealer, they can let you know if it's a common problem

2004 srx rear running lights went out. Lights come on when brakes are applied and when turn signal is applied

Sounds like you have a blown fuse. Check owners manual for location of fuses, should be under steering wheel.

Both left and right rear brake lights not working including led stop light indicator. Fuses in engine compt all okay.

look on th eback of the brake pedal and you will find the brake switch wiggle it to see if it's loose if it is you will have to replace the switch, costs about $10.00 and does not take special tools to remove.

No pressure when I brake.

I would suspect there is either a crack in your brake line. the fluid has to go somewhere if youre having to refill the reservior. Maybe they didnt bleed them after the work was done, and had an air bubble and when you applied pressure is blew out a fitting. needs to be checked out though for sure!

Brake lights won't turn off

sounds like it is a brake light switch located at the brake peddle. test the switch and if it is faulty replace it.
