Mazda 3 interior and tail lights flicker

Asked by Cmreeves020 Jan 20, 2020 at 11:00 PM about the 2004 Mazda MAZDA3

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2004 Mazda three and sometimes
when I turn on my car and turn the lights on,
the interior and tail lights do not come on but
the headlights do. When I drive like this and
hit a bump, sometimes the lights kick back on
and they usually stay on for the rest of the ride
so it does not feel like a blown fuse. What
could this be?

You have loose or corroded connections somewhere. I would start by cleaning the bulb sockets. I would also check the grounds.

If you've found a solution please let me know i have the same exact issue
