Brake and turn are the same filament in the bulb. Try a new bulb. if that doesn't work your going to chase a short/ground on that wire back to the switch. get a wiring diagram to help.

SOURCE: trailer signal and brake lights not working at back of trk

THERE SHOULD BE SEPARATE FUSES FOR THE TRAILER WIRES. HAVE YOU LOOKED UNDER THE STEERING COLUMN FOR THEM? IF YOU HAVE AND THEY CHECK OUT OKAY, THEN CHECK THE WHITE WIRE ON THE TRAILER PLUG, IT IS THE ONE THAT IS EXPOSED ON THE TRAILER PLUG. IT IS THE GROUND FOR ALL THE TRAILER LIGHTS AND THE MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL THE WIRES. SEE IF THE TRAILER HAS A GOOD CLEAN GROUND AS WELL(WHITE WIRE). HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK

I have 89 bronco 2 my brake lights turn signals both work my tail lights don't work have check fuse n blubs what might be the problem


The turn signals and brake lights use the same circuit and filament in the bulbs. The tail lights are on the other circuit which comes from the headlight switch.
Do you have power on the tail light fuse ?

No Tail lights. Or brake lights(when the headlights are on). HELP!!!


I think you have a bad ground at the back on both rear lights or their earth out on the same connection but these american cars use a funny system where the stop lights are the indicators and not a seperate yellow light like europeon motors ,Now these brake light switches also allow the indicators to work by shutting off the feed to the stop light so it flashes with indicators ,Why american cars use this system i dont know as its so complicated for the stop light switch function but try the ground or earth wire on the back lights and if no joy then ask a american mechanic with experiance of this sort of circuitry as when i get american cars for import i have to fit new back lights and disconnect the brake light switch .

Chevy S10. When my running lights are on everything works (except turn signals), front lights, tail lights brake lights. When I turn on my headlights turn signals still dont work everything comes on fine...


Check the grounds on your wiring.
If you have a trailer harness, make sure there are no shorts, or crusty connections

Brake & Turn signals do not work when headlights are on


The problem is what they call the printed circuit in the tail light. Remove the twist off light bulb connector. You will see the contacts inside and that the plastic is warped. You can purchase the entire fixture for about $350 if you replace it yourself. A dealer will charge about $450 per tail light fixture. Chrysler won't admit they have a problem that they should have issued a recall for. The problem is that if your stoplights are out, you may be involved in a rear end collision. Chrysler doesn't care. What I did was purchase a right angle tailight bulb holder and standard #1197 stoplight bulbs from advance auto supply. You have to trim the existing socket a little and splice the wires for the new light socket, but it beats paying $900 for replacing the two fixtures. I fixed mine about a year ago and haven't had any problems.

Tail Light Malfunction


Try looking for the spot where all your wires come together, near the rear bumper. I was having the same issues until I found the problem today and fixed it. I found a loose ground to the frame the bolt holding multiple grounds was loose. I found it near the rear bumper. I tightened it up and everything started working correctly. Good luck, hope you can find the problem.

Brake lights dont work, Turn Signals all goofy


First thing i would do is chg. the break light switch, and make sure to chk. all grounds around tailights, sometimes if there is a ground problem it will travel back thru the hot wire to get a ground, witch in turn makes everything go wackey.
