The rear tail lights on passenger side have totally stopped working in my 2002 explorer. No blinker, break lights, turn signal ect. Doesnt matter if the head lights are on or off.

Asked by Aug 17, 2015 at 06:53 AM about the 2002 Ford Explorer XLS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Blinker blinks fast when trying to use but
my whole tail light is not working. Would a
bad blinker fuse black out everything
including my tail lights? Please help before I
get a ticket

you could have a bad bulb or a fuse, a fast blinking light indicates to you that the lights are not working. Check both the fuses and blubs..

Thank you. I stopped at auto zone and realized my tail light is full of water yet my seal is not old. What do I do to fix it from happening again


seems like the seal is bad, you will need to purchase a new seal, or if can use some silicone to seal it, but if you need to take it off again it may be a pain.
