My taillights aren't working but when I step on the brake the reverse light comes on. How do I fix that?

Are the bulb sockets in the right location? And check for burnt out bulbs.



Its just a matter of cleaning up connections like the plugins at the back end by the tail lights, pulling them apart and cleaning with electrical cleaner, checking connections at the bulb sockets with a test light, possible bulb socket replacement on some, and also checking the brake light switch down on the brake pedal. Just have to track it down.

Ok thanks very much. Gonna go n see if that's the problem
