Hello everyone, I recently had my tail lights go out. Not sure what happened but when I hit my brakes it still lights up but at night when my headlights are on it does not light up. Anyone might have an idea what it is?

check fuse 34. under your dash. for "small lights".. i believe thats the one..just check if the fuse is blown..i blew it twice fooling around with led lights lol
ps. you should have extra 7.5 amp fuse and pryer tool to take it out inside your engine bay fuse box.

this is how it looks like when its out..

The bulbs themselves can also cause that. However it usually is only one light is on and when you apply the brakes the light goes out. There is two light elements in the bulb. One is the running light and the other is the brake light and brake light works when lights are off. The brake light does not work when the lights are on. Just a suggestion.

It was the fuse. Everything is good now. Only thing is the license plate light doesn't work. But thats because I followed the DIY on the back up camera. It worked the first time and now nothing. Might find a different solution for the license plate lights.

what if you already tried to change the fuse a couple times and every time you put in a bran new fuse it keeps blowing?
I’m having the same issue. My tail lights are out but the brake light still works and my license plate light is out as well. Reverse lights work and so do the signal lights.

What kind of tailights and brake lights are you using. Could be one of those lights are blowing the fuse.

The only thing I changed was the brake lights. I believe they’re LED and the signal lights are LED as well and so is the license plate light and the reverse lights. Those are the only lights I’ve changed.

I checked the lights and they look fine. And when I change the fuse it keeps blowing.
I'm pretty sure the LED taillights and/or license plate light is blowing the fuse. Check the LED taillight and license plate light, are they metal plugs if yes than the metal on metal is blowing the fuse. I know cause it's happened to me twice. Use LEDs with plastic plugs and you'll be fine. Change out those LEDs than replace the fuse.

This is good info.
