When you bought the car did it have a after-market key less remote system?

I ask because my friend went through a very similar problem like your going through.
he had bought the car and somewhere down the line someone had had installed a non-GM remote key less entry system. His problem went away as soon as we disconnected the after-market junk.

9 times out of 10 if your car has one of these it will be located under the driver side dash area.

If you have one try just pulling the fuse/fuses powering it. or there may be a little on/off toggle switch.

Anyways hope this helps.

Todd

My other thought would be, does your car have a hitch. Sometimes trailer light harnesses can melt as well and cause problems in the lighting of the car.

No hitch or trailer light plug. No keyless entry. And I know that the 30 amp fuse is a bad idea but it is all I have to get any tail lights at all. I got pulled over again on thursday night for the fourth time in appleton. This time I got a written warning.

I don't know where to look for the problem any more but I have found something else that makes the situation better....

When I put the bulbs into their sockets the opposite way that they are supposed to fit, because of the grooves in the socket and bumps on the bulbs, the lights return to their normal brightness. I then have to hold the bulbs in with rubber bands... Kind of a pain.
