Question 4 Different Lights Out

While purchasing the car it was noted that the right brake light and the right back up light were not working and we assumed it was just a couple of bad bulbs. I changed all 4 bulbs on that side only to still have the problem. Later in the night I realized the trunk light wasn't working and once again a new bulb made no difference. Then I was pulled over because the license plate light wasn't working but by then I knew enough to say to the cop that it must be a bad ground or something because new bulbs aren't working.

I'm curious if anyone has had this issue. I would've assumed a bad fuse if this wasn't affecting only one side. I haven't taken the time to trace the wires but I'm hoping it's a simple fix. Makes me wonder if this is related to why the right rear speaker doesn't want to work either.

Re: 4 Different Lights Out

If a lot of stuff on one side is not working there might be damage to the harness somewhere, either from critters gnawing on it or external damage or from rubbing through on a hard corner.

If your taillights use the circuit board, that is a common point of failure for taillights.
