Taillights don't light up?
I have a 2005 Crew Cab, and my taillights will be on for the running light, but whenever I apply the brakes, only the cab light lights up and the taillights stay dim. Did I blow a fuse, or what?

I just replaced the lights about 2 months ago and I checked the bulbs when I was blacking out my taillights about a month ago. I checked the bulbs earlier and nothing is wrong with the bulbs, so I'm guessing it's a fuse?

Always start simple, check bulbs and fuses. I found that the retaining clip for my switch was missing, got a pack of them from Dorman, all better.2008 Silverado LT

Oops, I forgot to reply back on here. The prongs on both of my bulbs were burnt. I fixed it now. Thanks for all the help, guys!

I like it when it's something simple like that and doesn't cost much if any money, good job guys! i was thinking along the same lines if the 3rd brakelight on the cab was working right and just the tail lights wasn't it had to be either a bulb, (bulbs) or that circuit board in the tail lights that the bulbs plug into gone bad. had to replace one of them before too.

Yeah, it was a simple fix. I had extra bulbs laying around, too.
