Common Problems with Chevrolet Trailblazer Tail Light Assembly
In America, rear-end collisions are the most common car-related accidents. One way to prevent them is having functional tail lights all the time. Plus, driving with busted tail lights can get you pulled over by the traffic police and issued a ticket. But even though it is built to last a long time, the Chevrolet Trailblazer tail light assembly can develop a number of problems that will cause it to malfunction or not function at all. Here are the most common problems you may encounter with your tail lights. It is important to know how to identify them so that you can be able to provide the exact solutions with efficiency.
When one bulb is not lighting up, it is most likely blown. Open the hatch and take the tail light assembly out. Disconnect the electrical plug that runs to the tail light to pull the electrical connection apart. Take the bulb off of the assembly and inspect its filament to see if it is broken. If it is, you will need to replace the bulb with a new one.
If the trouble is not a blown bulb, check the wires running to the tail light housing next. There may be a short or some frays on the wire. If you confirm damages on the wires, have it checked and serviced by a professional mechanic to avoid other problems.
When there are multiple bulbs that do not work at the same time, a blown fuse is most likely the cause of the problem. Pop up the hood and check to see if the tail lights fuse is blown. Inspect it, and if you see a thin metal strip inside that is broken, then the fuse is definitely blown.
Take a close look at your Chevrolet Trailblazer tail light assembly and check to see if there is any moisture inside. The water droplets that line the inner walls of the tail light assembly lessen the amount of perceivable light, which can cause a rear-end collision. This problem is usually caused by having worn out or brittle seals around the bulbs. Also, if you live in an area where rain comes frequently, this can become an utterly annoying problem.
