I have a 2003 VW Passat - the rear brake lights do not work (in the tail assy), but the brake light in the back window works when the brake pedal is depressed - could it be possible that all of the brake light bulbs on the tail light went bad since the rear window light still works, or does it sound like a switch problem? they are dual filament bulbs, and the tail lights work when the headlights are on, just no brake lights.

When I turned on the lights last night to drive home the rear lights did not come on at all. When we hit the brake lights nothing... We turned the lights off and hit brake lights the brake lights come on. Hazzards, blinkers, reverse lights come on. Fuses are good. My thinking is that there is a relay of some kind that went out and if this is the case where would it be located? I know that the passenger rear tail light assembly is going bad and is on order to replace.

I need a fuse box diagram for a 1992 Dodge Dakota pickup truck. I need to find the fuse for the left rear tail light. The bulb was replaced however when I turn on the lights the left rear tail light will not come on. The brake light works/comes on;I first thought the socket was bad but when I put the car in gear to back up both lights come on. So I think the fuse needs to be replaced. I purchased the car used and the fuse panel cover is missing.

I have a 98 ford contour and the brake lights dont work. Turn signals, flashers, running lights, and third brake light all work. All fuses are good and cannot determine if any relays are bad. Since the third brakelight still works, I am baffled. FYI- I tracked the wires and found an orange/yellow wire going to third brake light, and Orange/green wire going to rear tail lights. These two wires then run separatley back to the fuse block. Please help! Thanks, Jake


Accoding to my schematic you should be seeing an orange/yellow wire going to the third brake light, and a branched off orange/yellow wire going to the turn signal switches which in turn goes to the BLU/WHT and BLU/BLK wires which control the rear sto ... 1998 Ford Contour

2002 Nissan Xterra: not working are my running lights, dash lights and the interior buzzer. I did find that the 15a fuse was blown which ties into the tail lights. Also noticed that I had a bad brake bulb. Both were replaced and all was working. Later that night problem reoccurred, but this time the fuse hadn't blown. I did replace it again but the problem still exists. I'm driving with no rear lights (brake lights are working). What should I check now or test?? Any assistance would be greatly a

Brake lights go out when head lights are on. During day brake lights work fine. At night when driving with lights on, applying the brakes turns off the rear tail lights. The center brake light in the rear window is not affected. When you take foot off brakes rear tail lights come back on.


What most likely you have on the rear lights is a bad ground between the lights and the frame /chassis. If the lights are on a tailgate /hatch then the wire is probably broken in the space between the 2 units where it moves a lot. Try running a temp ... 2001 Isuzu Rodeo

1992 yamaha fzr 600. Just bought it. Total newbie. Bike runs like a champ, with a few minor concerns i was hoping to get answered. 1st, it idles HIGH! Like 3000rpms+. They said the carbs were recently cleaned, and the idle wasnt set back properly. Possible? Also, no low beam, turn signals or rear tail light. High beams and brake lights work fine? Bad fuse(s)? What should i expect to pay for repairs? Id hate to get ripped off! Never a good way to start a new hobby! Thanks for all your help.

I have a 1997 Rav4. The rear brake or stop lights went out on both sides, and tail lights (same bulbs different filament) remains on constantly even when the lights and car are turned off! [strange] I replaced the bulbs on both sides (bulb# 1157). The stop light on the driver's side had been burned out and I replaced it. Also, the fuse [location 15 fuse 10A] appeared to be burned out and I replaced that with a new 10A fuse. The brake lights still do not go on and the tail lights still remain on
