Hello and welcome to just answer and allowing me to assist you. If none of your tail lights and brake lights are noy working pull up the scuff plates on the drivers side to trace the wiring back to the left front kick panel and the connector to the rear wiring.Check for power when you turn lights on and off at the terminals with a test light.
thanx for that info, I understand better now , it;s the tail light circuit that's not working, Have you checked the tail light fuse? If it's ok then you can still do as I originaly sugested to go to the connector in the left front kick panel and check for power going to the back
do you have power to any one of the tail light sockets when switch is on? then if you do you may have lost a body ground to that circuit. lets check that.
first lets see if you have power to the sockets
ok thanx for the info. look for thar connecter in the kick panel and check for power there
no it't will have all the lights for the rear going threw it.just probe your test light in each hole to find if one comes on and off with the light switch. if it don't then we have to go back to the switch itself. if it does then we go further down line to the rear. This is what you do to find a circuit without a wiring diagram.doing it this way will not blow a fuse.
well if it's hot all the time that isn't what your looking for, have you tried the connector yet
mmm that sounds like possibly a sticking tail light relay check that out or just replace it they are not expensive.
can I get back to you need to pick up my grand daughter.
try this; turn off and on head lights Liston for click under hood by your battery, that clicks your tail light relay. It has 4 wires in it. with head lights on 3 wires should be hot. if only 2 wires are hot replace relay.
