Why does my tail light keep going out?

A blown fuse usually causes both lights to go out. On newer cars, the tail lamps can be fused separately and/or each bulb or shared circuit can be fused. A fuse can be blown due to other problems, so you'll need to check more than just the fuse, but it's the right place to start.

How do you diagnose tail light problems?

Once the fuse that controls your tail lights is identified, it can be tested using a fuse tester, which will light up if the fuse is good. If it doesn't light up, the fuse should be replaced with one of the same size and amperage. On certain fuses, you can visually see a break in the metal wire inside a bad fuse.

Why are my LED tail lights not working?

Dislocated or Damaged Wiring

Damaged or disrupted wiring can cause tail lights not to work, but brake lights are. The two lightings use different wiring as each bulb has got its power supply. A recent accident at the tail end of your car can increase the likelihood of this problem.

Why are my brake lights not working but my tail lights are?

Malfunctioning light bulbs

What is a tail light relay?

Checking Fuses. Step 11 - A tail light control relay is used to help shoulder the electrical draw many bulbs can cause on a single circuit, this task is carried out by the BCM (body control module). The headlight/running light switch is used as the trigger circuit which sends a signal to activate the relay.

Can you drive without tail lights?
