Hi, Michael tail light issues are relatively easy to diagnose and repair and the usual suspects are:
1. Tail light bulb element is broken.
2. Tail light bulb soldered contacts are extremely worn down.
3. Tail light bulb socket corroded.
4. Tail light bulb socket has no power and or ground.
5. Tail light wiring harness damaged from the rear tire.
6. Tail light rear fender wiring harness connector faulty due to corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets.

Does this machine have an aftermarket fairing? If so, the wiring that normally connects everything together within the headlight shell may not have been done very well when extended into the fairing shell. The main fuse which is usually only a short distance from the battery and connected into the '+' wire from the battery (not the heavy cable that powers the starter) if blown, kills power to all lights, engine, and etc..

Did you check the "Signal" fuse in the main fuse box?

Tail light works but goes off when rear brake is applied on my 98 kawasaki vulcan 800


you are missing a ground wire
what is happening is when you have the tail light on it is grounding out through the brake light so that when the brake is applied the current is stopping that taillight working by pushing current back through the bulb
the same principle that puts out the charge light when the alternator starts working

Headlamps on, both brake lamps are on;hit brake, left brake lamp brightens, right lamp remains dim;headlamps off, hit brake, only left lamp lights. What could be the problem?


Your right brake light is not the same bulb as your rear running light that comes on with the headlights. Different bulbs. Your right brake light is simply burnt out or has worked its way out of the connection. Take it to Advance Auto Parts. They may even change it for you. Not a big problem.

Look for a poor ground on the LH light assembly. You'll need to remove the assembly to do this.

When I turn my lights on my tail lights work but when I hit my brakes the don't light up I have a 2001 vw beetle????


the brake lights don't light up or the taillights don't light up? the brake lights are brighter than the tailights so the tailights won't show up whenbrakes are applied. if no lights work when brakes are applied then check for a bad ground at the light assembly.

I have a 2000 Dodge Durango I bought about 4 hours ago. The tail lights do not work but the brake light and turn signals do. Also the dash lights do not work. The dash lights came on when I hit the...


The odds are the one fuse is blown for the dash and the tail lights. And the wrong bulb may have been put in for the brake light. The brake light is feeding back into the tail light circuit causing the fuse to blown out.

Change out the bulbs with OEM bulbs and replace the blown fuse. That should fix the problem.

In my 89 cevy silverado my lights all worked until i hit the brakes and the tail light and the break light would go out, but my tail light works just fune until i hit the brakes


Check the rear bulbs,and see if they are burned out,check to see if a double element bulb is in the socket,not a single element bulb.

What fuse runs the tail lights and dash lights. Dash lights come on when you hit the brakes. Tail lights are not working at all


If the dash lights are coming on when you step on the brakes you have a grounding problem. The brake light are seeking a ground through the dash lights and tail lights. Check the ground wire near the rear of the vehicle, follow the wire harness there should be a wire (probably black) that breaks out and is bolted to the body or the frame. It could be the light socket itself but for both sides to fail is unlikely.
