Burning Tail Light 999

I own a 2005 999. The tail light (running light) keeps burning out. The parking brake light still works. It is the dual filament type of light bulb. The light does not last more than a few minutes. What's going on here? What do I need to check for? Any and all help appreciated. Thank you

    I have a 2001 Honda Magna, and when I
    rev the engine the break light will goes a bit brighter and will break the
    running light part of bulb.   Not sure if this is a regulator problem or a
    short in the wiring system?

I've heard that using plate re-locators and after-market exhausts can cause vibration that'll break the filaments in the bulbs. I just had a turn signal go out this morning. The (very standard and readily available) model 5008 is the direct replacement for the turn signal bulbs and a 2-pack at the auto store (Autozone, etc) is $1.75 or so. 12 volt, 10 watt. There are LED replacements for them that won't break, but since the stock bulb is 10 watts, you'd be hard pressed to find an LED bulb that puts out that brightness. If you go LED, you also have to make sure it has a resistor built in. LED bulbs intended for turn signal use have them, ones for brake lights etc don't. PS: I think the brake/ running light bulb is an 1157, dual filament. I haven't had to replace that one yet though so I'm not sure, check it first!!!

Did you change the bubs? Dual filament one for brakes one for Running lights. If the filament for Brakes is not burned out then Brakes will work and not running lights.Is both Running lights out or just one side?

If the break lights in my 1986 c corvette works but the tail lights do not, what could be the cause


Blown fuse ,bad headlight switch,or wiring issue.
the tail lights have there own fuse and are powered through headlight switch. Do the front running lights come on? If none of them work, switch could be bad if front work and rears dont, check bulbs and power to them when lights are on

My tail light is out but the brake light works


This is what is known as a dual filament bulb.
One bulb that has two lights inside the glass.
Usually one of the filaments will burn out, requiring you to replace the entire bulb.

Hope this helps.

Head lights work, brake lights work, blinkers work, tail lights dont, replaced all fuses and bulbs


did you change any relays  swap some relays to see if you can get the tail lights working but something else will fail    do you mean marker lights  make sure you used the correct bulb type  many are dual filament bulbs and will not work right if you used single filament bulbs

Brake lights will not come on. It is not the bulb. The tail lights work.


The tail lights working would not necessarily mean that the brake light bulbs are good. If they are the type that have a double filament (ie: one filament for the tail light and another filament for the brake light ) the brake light filament could be bad and the tail lights still would work. If they are either single filament type bulbs or double filament type, I would check the bulb, fuses, and contact switch on the brake pedal.

Only headlights work, 91 4dr EX


ok supaxang, could this solution be as simple as replace the 2 rear bulbs? The brake light and tail light (parking light) are the same bulb, 2 filaments, one for brakes, one for tail lights. If the the tail light filament burns out, the brake light will continue to work ok. It is quite possible that both tail lights burned out, and the brake light filaments are good and still working. Replace w/ bulb #2057. Let me know if this fixes it, if not, I'll keep working on it.
