Turn on all possible lighting fixtures located in back block headlights (backing signals, marker lights, etc.) then again press a brake pedal. If at inclusion of stoplights you find failure in work any of other included signals, the unreliable contact with "weight" or bad contact in a block headlight can be the reason for that.

In the Head Governing bodies and methods of safe operation it is in detail described what lamps have to light up at inclusion of ignition. Start the engine. Control lamps have to go out. Making a trip to night-time, check operability of all lamps of illumination (both a combination of devices, and the dashboard). At failure detection address appropriate section of the Head Onboard electric equipment.
  6. Sometimes, lamps can fail because of emergence on them or on rust cartridges. Having replaced a lamp, you will not get rid of a problem. In this regard, when replacing any lamp, attentively examine a cartridge from within. At detection of deposits of green or white color remove them with an emery paper.
