check ans see if you have a bad relay (in the fusebox)


which fuse box? the one under the hood? Do you know which one is for the taillights?

Update: Checked all bulbs=good All fuses=good, swapped relay with headlight relay=they both are good. Bought a dimmer switch and tested that=no change. Checked behind glove box(other models have a tail light relay there?) no relay only found in cabin air filter.


I have the same issue with my 06 corolla. Did you find the problem? Also mine will sometimes flicker on and off while on bumpy roads but never stays one for more than a couple seconds


I found the issue on mine. There is a relay next to the cabin air filter. Mine was loose. I just pushed it back in and BAM it's all working. You have to take out the glove box. You will likely not be able to see the relay but it's up above where the glove box would be. Hope this helps!
