Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My tail lights are not working. The brake lights work. I brought it to a garage and they said
the bulbs were fine. That it was electrical and they couldn't fix it. I would appreciate any
ideas. It has happened several times.

Have you checked the fuses? And is it the running lights or the turn signals that's not working?

Not much of a garage/mechanic. Check the bulbs and give up? Gimme a break...couldn't fix it because it was electrical/ What do they do there? Sorry Haybo, it's just that when a place that calls it's self a shop and does that it annoys me. I am familiar with Corolla's. Do the dash lights work? That is important to know and we can go from there. The tail-lights and dash lights are on the same circuit, so if your tail-lights go out so do the dash, so you won't be driving around without tail-lights and not know. What I am getting at is if the fuse is blown for both, or a broken, but non-shorted wire to tail-lights. Please come on back and we will figure this out.
