It is the bulb sockets, water sometimes gets into them and it shorts out the sockets, try to replace the sockets and put a little bulb grease on the bulb and contacts before installing new bulbs that should solve the problem. The brake light issue is a common problem with these vans, hope this helps.

Tail light brake light wont work on driver side. The top light works but brake light wont. I change bulbs 2 times.


Alot of times the socket gets deformed from heat and doesnt make contact. The thing to do is check for voltage at the wire going into the socket, as well as the term. in the socket. Also, you might have to attach a ground wire to the bulb, that is also a problem. Now if you dont have voltage on -In the Socket, you may have a broken wire, in the harness.

you obviously have a short to ground on one of the wires to the back (if it was the front the brake shouldn't blow the fuse). the most common problem is usually in a trailer light harness. if you look under the drivers side rear of the truck, down under the tail light there will be a plugin junction. pull this plug-in apart and see if the fuse still blows. if it does then the problem is forward of that connector, if it doesn't then the problem is behind that plugin. be sure to check for "green death" (electrical corrosion) at all joints especially any trailer hook ups.

Tail lights work but right brake light doesn't


I had a similar issue with my lincoln, it turned out to be the wiring to the socket, was corroded and broken. Since you have done the other things this would be the next plausable place to look. hope this helps

Now remove the bulb & put your volt meter to the
center socket contact & ground your blk lead.

See if you get 12.6 volt back to the socket
If not,then you have a voltage drop before the socket

I hate to suggest a wiring diagram, as your doing good
so far,BUT you may need one, after you get dirty under the
car some more following the wiring

The printed circuit board that the bulbs push into needs replacement. Any autoparts store will have it. It just screws into tailight assembly & attaches to wiring harness.

if the third brake light works then ther is a broken wire. start looking for it at the tail lights and work forward if you cant find the break you can always run a new possitive wire from either the third brake light to the tail lights or if the trailer wiring harness hase power to the brake lights you can splice in there as well. hope this helps

Honda civic brake light harness.


Not sure that I would replace the harness just yet. Check the ground wire to see if it has a bad connection. If that is ok, use an ohm meter to check the ground in the socket. If it has high resistance, you can replace just the sockets. Cut the wires, then solder the wires from the new socket in place. The local parts store usually has these in stock. I've had to do this to a car last summer, wasn't very difficult.

2005 Chev Impala, the temperature light for the passenger has gone out, is this a bulb or fuse issue? what needs to be fixed to get my light back? Thanks. Also service traction light keeps coming on at...


The individual lights for the temperature cluster (and radio cluster) are soldered on a circuit board. Replacing one bulb is a long and tedious process, it can be done, but replacing the entire circuit board may be easier (no idea of the cost, but I have the same issue - drivers side is out)

The service traction light means there is an issue with the ABS T/C system. I have had this happen a number of times. My fix was to have the front wheel ABS wiring pigtail harness replaced (approx. $30.00)

Brake and/or taillights stay on


First, check the brake light switch, and if the high level light is on, the brake light switch is the likely problem. Even if it isn't, the bulbs could be burnt out. Anyway, disconnect the wire harness from the brake light switch on the brake pedal. If the lights go out, replace the switch. To test the light switch, disconnect the wire harness from that (with the switch in the "off" position). Again, if the lights go out, this is the problem. More likely, it is the brake one. This happened on my Dodge twice.
