I had the same problem, inside the light housing are three contacts, one single and two contacts together, the single one lost the contact with the bulb because it's pressed down and broke the plastic that work as an spring. I fixed soldering a piece of 22 cable from housing contact to bulb housing, is work for me for a long time, tail light housing is so expensive....

Tail lights work but not brake lights 93 toyota camry


The brake light side of the bulbs is powered by the brake switch and travels thru the turn signal switch.
If the third brake light works, I would guess the problem is in the turn signal switch.

Headlight switch on makes tail light dim


there must be a short circuit which powers tail lights and brake lights. probably you have a dual filament bulbs which have both brake and tail light together. check for bulb, socket/or bulb housing and harness of that light.

1999 Dodge Grand Caravan Center brake light comes on when brake pedal is pushed. Side brake lights do not come on when the brake pedal is pushed. Tail lights and brake lights do come on when head lights...


Your Problem is most likely your multifunction switch. This switch is on your steering column and operates the bright and dim headlights, turn signals, hazards and wipers and wash. You will have to remove the cover around the steering column to get to it and replace it. Feel free to contact me for more info if you need help doing this. I will do my best to respond right away.

99 neon running tail lights do not work but tail lights work when brakes are applied....help


what you are seeing is the bright filament on the bulb working,
the tail light bulbs have two filaments in each bulb,one is dim and one is bright,the bright one is to the brake and turn signals,that way when you step on the brake with the tail lights on the same lens light up brighter to warn drivers behind you..
you need to check the fuses in the car for tail lights first,see if your plate light is on that will tell you the bulbs are just blown

Boat traler lights dim when break is applied


Your turnsignal flasher needs to be replaced with a heavy duty flasher.
also, your boat trailor wiring harness is grounded incorrectly or the harness pig tail is wired incorrectly.
this is why when you excite your tail lights and brake lights that your reverse lights come on and the reason that the lights are dimmimg is because your circuits are looking for the correct ground.
