First, remove and check the bulb. If the bulb is good, use a test light to test for voltage to the socket. You should have voltage on both contacts if you have someone hold the rear brake down. If not, check the "lights" fuse if you bike is equipped with one. If you still don't have any power to the tail light, you'll have to trace the wiring back through the fender.

Ride Safe.

Rear hazard flashers don't work 1994 Chevrolet Cavalier


Hazard flasher power comes from the 20A S/LP fuse in the fuse block. It is applied to the hazard flasher in the convenience center. Flasher output is applied to the turn/hazard/headlight SWITCH assembly where activation of the HAZARD switch causes flashing power to be applied to the turn indicators and the turn filaments of the front and rear dual park/turn lights. If replacing the fuse doesn't work, trace the power through the circuit. Check for misssing/disconnected ground wires.

I'm trying to wire my 89 jeep wrangler to be towed useing it's existing lights.the turn signals both flash when right or left is on? I've tryed it under the dash with no luck now all the way...


If the brake and turn signal are on the same bulb than you can Orin straight wiring. If the brake and turn signal are on different bulbs than you'll need a wiring harness with a converter box. I'm pretty sure the wrangler has the brake and turn signal on the Same bulb so let's start with basic trailer wiring. The green wire on the trailer harness is for the right side turn and brake for the trailer. This wire should be attached to the wire on the vehicle that supplies power to the right turn signal/ brake light. The yellow wire is the left turn signal, brake light on the trailer and should be attached to the wire on the vehicle that supplies power to the left turn signal /brake light. The brown wire is the tail lights on the trailer and should be attached to either the left or right side wire on the vehicle that supplies power to the tail lights. The white wire is grounD and it is vitally important that this wire be attached to the vehicle in a manor that supplies a good ground. Failure to suppy a good ground will result in all kinds of funky problems with the trailerer lighting such as all the lights linking when the tail lights and turn signals are on at the same time. If you have any specific questions I will be more than happy to try and help. Good luck.

Running lights work but no blinkers or brake lights. Changed fuses and bulbs no luck


I'm inclined to believe it is the turn signal switch. When you select left or right, the brake light is removed from that side, and the flasher is connected to the bulb instead, making the brake light on that side flash as the indication that you plan to turn. You have lost everything, but the simple answers check out.

If you have lost signals, brake lights and tail lights, then it is more likely that the ground supplied to the bulbs is not working, since the tail lights share noting in common with the brakes lights and turn signals but ground.

If the tail lights work, the fact that the brake lights and rear turn signals share that switch starts to look meaningful — even more so if the front turn signals also don't work. But the front signals and the rear signals use different circuitry in the switch, so it would be something more mechanical in the switch than electrical in that case.

Trailer lights have two wire out of each fixture left turn goes on left side Right hand turn goes on the other side Tail lights connect how and brakes connect how?


One wire is for the brake/directional filament and the other wire is for the tail light. The fixture should be grounded when it is attached to the bracket. To test which is which (the brown wire is USUALLY the ail light) make sure the fixture is grounded and touch a hot wire to each of the wires coming from the fixture. Watch to see which wire lights up the brighter filament and this is the brake/directional light. The dimmer filament if the tail light. Brakes lights and directional lights are both the same filament. Wen the brakes are applied, both lights are activated. When a direction light is turned on, it simply flashes the brake light filament.
