SOURCE: Tail chop performed, brake light doesn't work

Hi,

Offhand, in most bikes, the tailight and the brake light are integrated in a single bulb with a common ground. This would translate then into a 3wire arrangement. The brighter of the filaments is for the brake while the dimmer of the two is for the park/running/tail light. To my knowledge, either the tail or brake lights do not use a relay, they are wired straightforward. Your described problem all points to a mis-connection, possibly the ground wire. The easiest approach would be to identify the ground wire. With ignition switch off, all light switches off, identify the ground wire with the use of a continuity tester (VOM/DVM). Disconnect the wires to the harness, on the harness, it would be the wire with nearly 0 resistance against any exposed metal or the chassis. On the wires going to the tailight assy, it wold be the wire that measures 0 ohms to the metal socket/housing of the bulb.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: My signal lights, hazard lights, and tail light aren't working.

Check the rear bulbs.If they are working (brakes+lights) check the wires.For the turn signals, override the flasher relay.If they are coming on then you need to replace the relay.If not then check the left hand side clip on switch.

SOURCE: BRAKE LITES WON"T WORK

you have a corroded ground in the back light bar..remove the rear light bar from the fender and make sure it is clean, not rusty.

SOURCE: Rear tail lights and running lights not working.

Make sure that the rear light fuse is not blown
If not trace the brown wire from the rear lights & check for continuity between lamp holder & fuse
As its both rear lights & front sidelights it will not be an earth fault

Hope this helps (if so please mark as very helpful)

Parking lights, tail lights, and dash lights dont work


i assume you have checked all lighting fuses. if you have not, start there. do you have brake lights? if you do have brake and head lights then i would suspect the dimmer/light switch.

Tracing down a short causing my dash lights and my tail lights to not work after a near lightning strike ?


The running lights and dash lights are on the same circuit.The brake lights and turn signals are on their own circuit.You need to use a 12v test light to see where the circuit is broken,starting at the fuse,then the headlight switch,then the dash harness.(If the headlights work,you at least know the headlight switch is getting power).

My brake lights dont work checked fuses not sure which fuse it might be ...tail lights work and so do hazards .. not sure where to check next


it may be the brake light switch,you should find it under the dash near the brake pedal,a wire may have come off it or it could be loose & need resetting & tightened up or it could be faulty & needs replacing......hope this helps.....cheers.

2001 Wrangler brake light not working correctly. Tail light works, brake light uses only one bulb filament. When boht tail light and brake light are engaged neither filament comes on. Passanger side...


The light assembly is grounded to the body through the mounting screws. It sounds as though it is a bad ground. You could run a ground wire to a bolt on the frame from a mounting screw to check for aground problem.

2001 GMC Jimmy break lights not working but all


Check the brake light switch should be a orange wire with 12v then a white wire with 12v when the pedal is pressed.If htat cks good then ck the hazard switch by moving it up and down and wiggeling the knob with the brake pedal pressed if they start working then your multifunction switch is bad and needs to be replaced.

2001 dodge neon tail lights inop


looking at your schematics and , you say tail lights don't work , you didn't mention if front parking lights and license plate lights are working , they all come from the same source , a black /yellow wire , a good clue if front work and rear don't , please advise .if fronts work then you have a open circuit somewhere between junction S118 (near breakout for left headlamp) and rear sockets.
