Back right turn signal and brake light not working

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Thank you for writing in. This is going to be a process of elimination. You will need to check the bulb, the fuse, and the taillight assembly. Start by looking for a burned out bulb or a broken or burned fuse. Next, you will want to check to make sure the taillight assembly is passing voltage through to the bulb. You can skip a few steps by checking the taillight assembly for power with a volt meter. If it is not getting power, you likely have an issue with the fuse or the combo switch in your steering column. Only further inspection will tell. Good luck!
