'97 Chevy C2500 - No Tail Lights/License Lights


Asked by Jul 30, 2016 at 04:37 AM about the 1997 Chevrolet C/K 2500 Cheyenne Standard Cab LB HD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hey! I'm stumped on this one, never came across this issue til now. My
C2500 has no rear "parking" lights. Brakes illuminate when pressed (3rd
brake light as well) , turn signals work, reverse lights work. 4-ways (all but
front drivers flash at this point).

What I've checked, for broken blown fuses interior panel #s 1,9,15 and 16.

Headlights work , brights and dims. All 4 lights work when testing turn
signals. Dash panel illuminates when parking and headlamps turned on.

Any help and pointers are appreciated thank you!

Totally different light circuit for the parking / running lights Of course check the rear bulb filaments make sure they are not burnt then test the sockets for 12 volts with the "park" lights switched on use a multimeter sockets corrode as well as the bases of lights.


They seem fine, I'll have to run to autozone as I don't have a multimeter. Would a bad bulb/socket cause the license plate lights to not work as well though?
