check the fuse box first, but it could be that the bulbs are different for your tail light and break light, check the manual.

Joshua Elks

will do ill check both of those out to be sure

change the bulb, those bulb have two wires in them. only one of them burn out, that is the reason when you turn on your light, the taillight still work.

i have a 97 integra, I had the same issue with my right fog light, i replaced the entire lighthouse for about 100 bucks, tail-lights should be like 150, just get a pair of new ones.

yeah, ill pass on that idea now does anyone have any genuine advice?

Grab the light connector and turn it counter clockwise. When you replace the bulb, make sure you don't touch the new one with your bare hands.
