SOURCE: 82 harley sportster brake light

try starting with the bulb. brake light bulbs are dual fillament, meaning you have 2 bulbs in one basicly. if your brake side has blown then the tail light could still work. Or try checking the brake light switches, one on front brake and one on rear brake pedal. to test switches disconect wires and join them together with small bit of wire or paper clip. this will make the light come on meaning you have a bum switch.
if you have only been using the rear brake, that has an adjustable switch, may need to mess with it

Test the bulbs, either with a multimeter or by taking leads from the battery (one from each terminal) and touching them on the bulbs terminals...no light...new bulb.
If bulbs are OK then clean all terminals with emery paper. Still no luck...use mulitimeter to test continuity from fuse to bulb seat terminal. If no continuity check the wiring has not been damaged...if so replace it. Usually this is a corrosion problem. Good Luck.

There seems to be some short in the circuit of the high beam, you will have to follow the high beam wiring, best would be to get the color of the high beam wire frm the head light bulb socket and trace it along you will sure find somwhere the along it the short.
Check the light switch and the blinker switch too.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: 1982 maxim no turn signals no break light

Does the brake light work with the front brake lever. Sounds like wrong type of bulbs in there or bad turn signal flasher...Do the lights light up when you hit the switch and just stay lit...Also i can tell you that mine had to have the bike running in order to create enough amps to even make the flasher trip. I eventually put bigger bulds in each turn signal to draw more so they work with it running or not. It had 2156 bulbs in and i put 2157. Oh the flasher unit is under the fuel tank.

Hi....
On chevy .
Your problem is Mising ground. or poor groumd to the Tail lights.
First Check all the grounds on the engine compartment.
Near the BATTERY and the fenders wall.
If you found any one damaged Reapair as need.

But if everything is OK...
Check the connections of the Tail lights Under the BED of the truck.
If you found evrything good.

REmove Any of the Tail lights. APPLY GROUND at the BLACK wire of the Tail light connector and see if make any different. If the lights work ok. you can LEAVE with the Ground.
Or try to find where is the wire cut. or in missconntact.

OK... I hope this help to try resolve your problem.

Thank you for use fixya...
