Question: Why no tail lights turn sig. or brake light on back

The front turn sig. work, front hazard work. Replaced brake light switch, neutral safety switch, all rear light sockets and bulbs. Still no lights on back. What else can I do?

Sounds like you have replaced the normal failure items. You will need a shop to test the electrical circuit to see why no power is getting to the rear lights. Make sure all the fuses are good, but is sounds like a harness issue at this point.

I forgot to state that I did check all fuses and I checked for power at the sockets. The fuses are good and I do have power at the sockets. I am going to replace the brake booster because it has a leak. Is there anything else I can check? Thank you for the help. David

Car Brakes: How Do You Know When to Change Them?

By Zach Bowman For those who suffer a daily commute through heavy traffic, your vehicle's braking system can bring thousands of pounds of metal, plastic and empty Starbucks cups to a stop hundreds of times before you get to work.
