I have a 1987 Cadillac Deville, and my tail lights will not come on, they will when I hit the break and then go right back out when I take my foot off the brakes. I'm not sure whats going on, because we just replaced all the tail lights.. Could someone please help me or give me a rough idea of what it might be. Thanks.

1987 Cadillac Deville tail lights will not come on, only when I hit the break. My
turn signals work fine.

1 Answer


Sounds like the new lights have been wired wrong, the tail light are the dimmer lights, brakes and turn are both very bright.
