I just bought an 84 Toyota Tercel with 275K on it. It has 4 Cyl and runs well. I just noticed that the brake and back-up lights are inop. I checked the fuse and it is good. Also, both filaments on the bulb are good. What can I do to remedy this?
Brakes and Reverse lights inop. They're two seperate circuit-
What about the tail lights? If all of them are not working I'll start tracing the ground to it. You can verify this by removing the bulb and check for power in the socket if it has-your ground is gone. Now no power at all could be an open or short to ground.
Toyotas they all share the same ground wire to operate the Tail/Brake/Turn Signal/Reverse
