Simple test: access the brake bulb, keep the brake pedal pressed a little (use a too box or something similar) and measure the voltage between the central connector on the bulb and the bare metal of the body of the truck - if you get 12 volts then there is a defect in the wiring inside the rear lights, if you don't get 12 volts then either the switch that commands them (on the brake pedal) is faulty or the wiring that connects them to the rear bulbs has a break in it.
Do another simple test: take the brake pedal switch apart and join the 2 contact wires in there: if the lights light up then the switch is faulty, if they still don't then the wiring is faulty. If it's the latter you will gonna have a lot of work to find out where the break is - in the worst case scenario it will be under the carpet so the entire interior of the truck will have to be taken out to access it. it will be a very big job, better left to a repair shop.

My tail lights don't work but brake lights do, what's the problem?


Check your fuses to make sure they are OK. Your turn signal is on a different circuit than the tail lights. I think.

I have 89 bronco 2 my brake lights turn signals both work my tail lights don't work have check fuse n blubs what might be the problem


The turn signals and brake lights use the same circuit and filament in the bulbs. The tail lights are on the other circuit which comes from the headlight switch.
Do you have power on the tail light fuse ?

My tail lights work but my brakes lights don't


You actually have two different circuits, one for each.
The bulbs should have two filaments inside.
Depending on the make model and year, you should have a fuse and the brake switch, plus the circuit goes thru the turn signal switch.

1994 dodge dakota my headlights and tail lights and brake lights don't work my abs and parking brake lights are on my dash lights don't work either I replaced the headlight switch and still no


These are all different circuits. The brake lights are on a 10amp fuse - the headlights are on a 50amp fuse - and the parking and dash lights are on a 20amp fuse.
Do you have power going into the headlight switch and the brake light 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.

Check the ground for your rear lights. It's probably one single ground for all the rear lights, though I don't know that for sure. If it's not a grounding issue, it must be a loose power connection.
