Answers :

There is a switch in the gearbox which operates the reverse lights. If you take the electrical connection off and bridge the two terminals with a paperclip the lights should come on. If the do, the switch is your problem. If not you have a wiring problem but I doubt it.

The headlights on my 2004 GMC ENVOY just stopped working. First I replaced the light bulbs but had replaced them a few months back so didn't think that was the problem but started there and once the new one's were put in they still didn't work, but the break lights and everything else worked just fine. Secondly checked each headlight fuse and both fuses were good, had the battery tested and battery was good, high beams work just fine only thing not working is both headlights.

What, besides a blown fuse, would cause my instrument panel lights and rear running lights not come on. I have checked all of the fuses and they are good. I have reverse lights, brake lights, headlights, dome lights when turned on and power to my radio and reading light.


It's got to be a fuse unless by some bad fluke the light bulbs themselves have gotten damaged. Bad wires too maybe. only thing I can think of if it's not a fuse. Sorry ... 1989 Buick Century

Have a 92 olds eighty eight royale and the brake lights only work some of time. I checked the bulbs and the fuses and both are good and also checked the wiring in the trunk of vehicle at light location. Was wondering where else I might look for a loose wire connection or something that would cause this problem. Also the tail lights do work when headlights are on so I'm guessing its a wiring issue with the brake system just don't know where to check for connections. Thank you for any help you ca

My daughters 2002 Tahoe has no brake lights. Bulbs are good checked the fuse under the hood=good, also checked the fuse under the back seat labeled brake, it was good also. Now the ABS light and hand brake dash warning lights are on. My guess is pulling the fuse under the back seat tripped a code for the warning dash lights. So how do I reset the dash warning lights? By the way, still no brake lights...turn, direction, and running lights are good. Also the brake light over the back window


To clear the code disconnect the battery, you could have a bad brake lite swich, its under the dash by the brake pedal ... Chevrolet Tahoe
