If you're sure it's not the bulb or connectors then most likely there is a break somewhere in the wires. You need a volt-ohm meter or circuit tester. First of all, see if there's voltage coming out of the positive lead to the tail light... ground one lead to the meter or tester on the frame, connect the other to the pos. lead (coloured wire, usually). If there is voltage, then the ground wire (usually black) to the tail light should be replaced. If no voltage, work your way back towards the battery, testing the same way at each connector. When you find voltage, replace the wire(s) between there and tail light, making good solid connections (soldered and shrink-wrapped, for example).

2005 Chevy Equinox passenger side tailight doesn't work. Brake light, turn signal, and hazard work but unit does not illuminate at night. Easy fix ?


Have you tried swapping the bulb from the other side see if that works If not check for power and ground at the tail lamp circuit that is inoperative. Also take a good look at the connector(s) make sure there is no corrosion in the terminals.

Rear tail lights not working


If both tail lights are not working it is likely to be a fuse or bad connection under the hood or a connector at the back see if you can trace the wires to a connector and see if it is dirlty or corroded.

1999 jeep grand cherokee - brake lights and turn signals working but Right tail light out with all other lights on--HELP??? My 1999 Grand Cherokee has no parking lights in the rear. The brake lights work...


I have taken my car to many shops to solve this problem. Long story short your tail light has a bad circut and entire lamp must be replaced. (Lamp cost approximate $130.00)
