Re: Why my Tailight no work?!

Darren, I believe he said he's talking about the tail lamps, not the brake lamps. tail lamps dont go through the brake lap switch.

Scott, I presume you've checked the bulbs themselves? The 1157 in our 67 brake/tail lamp assembly is a dual filament bulb...which means your brakes and turns can work fine and the tail lamp filament can be burned out.

I know you said the tail lamps "were working" but old bulbs can and do fail just from a little rough handling.

Double check the quality of the connection inside the tail lamp socket as well.

Just some things to check...
