Tail light not working
« on: December 05, 2011, 02:57:16 PM »
I recently replaced my tail lights now 1 tail light does not work when I turn on my headlights. I have done the basic trouble shoot ie connections and grounds but have yet to find anything wrong. Can anyone help, please!

Make sure the bulb is inserted correctly -- it is possible to insert it 180 degrees out.
Make sure you have power to the bulb socket.
Make sure the bulb is good.

Thanks for the reply. I have taken my new tail light from the right-working side and wired it to the left-not working side with the same result....no tail light. So where does that place the problem? In the wiring is my only guess.And yes, i have also finaggled with the bulbs themselves.
