Why are the rear signals and tail lights and brake lights inoperative on a 1996 Suburban and the front turn signals work at a high speed?
Signals fast in the front and inoperative in the rear is an indication of an inoperative (or burned out) brake lamp. Check the rear brake/tail/bu light wiring harness, for it …is probably disconnected. This harness is located just inside the rear bumper (or behind the trailer hitch if you have one). You may find two connectors. Also check the bulbs themselves. I used cheapo wire taps from Radio Shack to attach a custom trailer wire harness on my 1992 Suburban, and over time the road salt ate away at the exposed copper strands in the wires, giving me this symptom on a yearly basis. . New Had the same problem with my 98 Suburban, found out that my tail light assembly is corroded, had it sand blast and it working superb. good luck New My problem started with first one side, then a few days later it went to both sides. Turned out my cable under the rear bumper had caught on something when I was offroad driving, but it didn't completely pull apart to begin with. Then later, it finally parted all together. It took all of 10 seconds to repair it once I knew what was wrong.
On your 1985 Toyota Pickup the tail lights and turn signals work fine and all bulbs check out OK so why don't the brake lights work?
I had a similar experience on my 57 Chevy back in the 60's. 1. CheckFuse Panel fuse under Brake Lights. 2. Check bulbs High Beam filaments. 3. Withrunning lights on tap tail l…ights to check for wire grounding shorts. 4. Check flasher to see that the lights work. 5. This is what I discovered to be wrong: Look under Brake Pedal for the Brake Relay Switch button. It works in reverse like the button on a refrigerator or vehicle door. When the button is pressed in by the brake pedal it opens the circuit to the High Beam of the brake/running tail lights. If working by hand but not by the brake adjust it. If not working replace it. It is the Brake Lights Relay Switch.
Answer . \nBad bulbs or brake light switch.
Answer . Try checking the tail light relay.
Why would the reverse lights not work on 2001 Nissan Frontier even after replacing bulbs and checking all fuses while Brake and Turn signal lights work fine?
Answer . Hopefully, you used a 12v. test light. \nDid you check the wiring and connections at the reverse light switch on the \ntransmission. This could also be called th…e back up switch. There may be such\na switch on the shift selector. Buy a Haynes or Chilton Total car care manuals.

Answer . grounding. Almost always an inadequate ground for one or other the light assembly or most commonly the ground between trailer and tow vehicle (tongue ground is no…t enough) - inadequate ground can work with low current loads and behave as if dead circuit with the higher load of additional lamps.

My 1998 Ford Contour dash light and tail lights don't work anymore brake and turns work fine fuses and bulbs do check out ok?
you may want to check your dimmer switch it may be the problem. Possibly a bad headlight switch or connector. I just had a `93Sable that the headlights would turn off when the… right indicatorwas selected, and come back on as soon as it turned off. Thesignal/wiper switch was in rough shape (washers didn't work andwipers only worked on high) so I changed it out. headlights stillshut off on right turn signal. Pulled the dash and found theheadlight switch over heating, and connector melted. Replacedconnector and switch. SOLVED...

What would cause the running lights on a newly wired trailer to not work even though the brake and turn signal lights are working?
Sounds like a bad ground to me. Trailers are NOTORIOUS for have ground problems. Make double-triple-quadruple sure that: (A) The tow vehicle plug is properly grounded to the v…ehicle frame (B) the trailer plug is properly grounded to the trailer frame. Even though both can appear to be OK, a flake of rust or paint will totally disrupt the circuit. I had this same problem on my 2000 ford e 150 and after going over everything several times I finally found that my fuse for the running lights relay going to the pigtail that was put on the van when the van was built so its from manufacture, was fuse d under the hood on the drivers side was partially cracked so it looked like it was good every time I checked the power going to it but I put a knew fuse there and my running lights started working and I was so close to taking it in witch would have cost allot more than the price of a fuse, the c and d fuses that go to the trailer light operation are from manufacture so not sure where u can get them...anyway I just used my c fuse and put it in my d slot cause my trailer has no backup lights on it so i did not need it in that spot.

Check the bulb. If it didn't help check wires around the tail light. Also you might want to check the fuse box for failed fuses.

When my running lights are working on my trailer my turn signal lights and brake lights don't work but if running lights are off turn signal and brake lights work?
I would check the running lights for one with a short. I had the same sort of thing with my trailer and I spent way to much time troubleshooting the brake and signal wires. Tu…rns out a running light bulb connector was grounding out on the trailer and messing it all up.

Dash lights and tail tight inop on 93 suburban but the brake and turn signals work its not the fuse under the dash?
A short in the tail light circuit. Brake and turn are on another circuit. Dash light power is fed from the tail light fuse to the dimmer switch and on to the dash lights. Look… for a short in the tail light wiring circuit. Also check the license plate light for a short as it is on the tail light circuit also. Had a car with blown fuse, traced the circuit for tail lights and found nothing. Jumped the fuse and burned out the wiring to the tail lights. Come to find out, the short was in the license plate light. Also a bad headlight switch can cause this. Both tail light circuit and headlight circuit go through the switch. Contacts for the tail lights may be bad (defective switch common).
