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!!!

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

Problem with rear tail light/brake light


Resolution Below -

Okay, I had the same problem...My 04 Suzuki DR200SE tail light /brake light is not working. Brake lights works in park mode not in ON with engine running or not. Tail light not in either mode.

Volt meter shows the socket is working correctly, fuses are good. I even adjusted the pressure switch for the rear brake application. MOM shows nothing positive to help me trouble shoot and neither does the internet. Lots of people with same issue, but I'm not seeing any resolution.

I'm posting the resolution as lots have had this issue, but no one has posted how they fixed it. It's the ground wire inside the tail section. Which is why the volt meter (which is grounded) shows the socket is good. You'll have the pull the tail section and note the ground wire has either broken off, or the wire has sucked up inside the insulation. You'll need to strip insulation, get to good wire and reattach it. I'd even solder it to keep it solid. Hope this helps someone else!!

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.
