Q: No taillights.

asked by on

My taillights are not working.

The first place I would look for a solution would be the fuse box. Assuming that the headlights and all other rear lights are working, this will eliminate the possibility that the switch and the rear light wiring harness are bad. If all tail lights are out at once, the possibility that bulbs are the cause is also unlikely. Most of the time the tail lights are ran off of a separate fuse in order to keep the headlights working in the event of a tail light failure. No lights on the back of your vehicle at night is a safety concern and I would recommend having a professional take inspect your lighting system as soon as possible to prevent a potential accident.
