Tail light

Asked by Apr 27, 2019 at 12:35 PM about the 2011 Chevrolet Impala LTZ FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My driver side tail light won't work. I have a 2011
Chevy Impala ltz. The turn signal, brake light , and
parking light all run on the same bulb, and they all
work when I use them. The fuze is good, and I had
the wiring tested and they're getting electricity
running through them. I replaced all the bulbs in
the tail light with brand new ones. Myself and a few
friends more knowledgeable than myself are

Note the diagram. At the rear lamps, lite green wire is voltage for tail lamps. Black wire is ground. Need both voltage and ground. Maybe take wiring connector loose, head lamp switch on, use both ends of test light between the green wire and black wire, does the lite turn on? If so, there is voltage and ground. The front park lamps and rear tail lamps have the same voltage source. You may be way ahead of me, just trying to help. good luck


Simply, you have a corroded connection or damaged wire to the tail light filament inside the bulb. Remove the bulb and see if you see corrosion. If so, clean it. If not, look at oilyspill's diagram above and find the damaged wire or connection
