Try checking to see if the tail light bulb and brake light bulb are one and the same; this usually means that the bulb has two filaments; one for the tail lights and a second filament (brighter) for the stop/brake light.

If one filament has burned out, change the bulb.

I hope this helps.

Have a great day !!!

2000 Acura 3.5 RL suddenly has no tail lights or tag lights. Brake, reverse and blinker all work. Checked fuses-all appear fine. Decided to replace bulbs and noticed front right marker light out so changed...


The only thing that both the brake lights and tail lights use is a ground connection. Keep in mind the warning light on the dash may be for any exterior lamp. You may need to check the sockets and grounds on all four corners of the car.

How do i remove the sensor for the rear tailgate?


1) Locate and remove sensor.
The sensor is located under the drivers tail light. Unclip it from the body and then unplug it.

2) Bypass the tail light circuit.
Connect the tail light signal wire (Green) to the tail light wire (Green w/ Red Stripe). I recommend using wire tap in squeeze connectors that way you dont have to cut any wires.

3) Bypass the brake light circuit.
Connect the brakelight signal wire (Green w/ White Stripe) to the brake light wire (Red w/ Blue stripe) and the the 3rd brake light wire (Red w/ White Stripe). Again all three of these wires are to be connected together.

4) Throw away your broken Tail Lamp Failure Sensor
Do not plug your sensor back in. Doing so will cause the annoying orange lamp failure warning light on your dash to stay on. Leave it unplugged ant the light will stay off.

5) Test your work
Turn on your lights and make sure your tail lights work properly. Have a friend step on the brake pedal, and make sure your brake lights work properly as well. Dont forget to check the Third brake light.

I have an 09 scion xb. When I turn my headlights on the dash lights go off and I can only see my blinker lights. When I turn the headlights off the dash foes back on


Tlhat circuit is directly hooked to your tail lights.. its sort of a warning for you to realize your tail lights are out. Not your brake lights but your tail lights... It could be the bulbs out or the switch or a wire shorted out.
