Hello all,

I have '07 FD1 Civic, my tail lights are working but when the brake pedal is pressed only the centre spoiler brake light comes on, the tail light bulbs don't brighten.

Any ideas?

The bulbs are probably dual filament. One for tail lights, one for brake lights. Brake lights are higher power so possibly the brake filaments have blown.

If you have a millimeter you can check the bulbs. If not, for the small cost of a pair of bulbs just replace them.

No guarantees of course but I suspect it is the problem. If a fuse had blown I would suspect the centre light would not work either, and it can't be the switch either. By the way, I meant multimeter not millimeter. Damn predictive text.

Fixed!

Thanks for the replies everyone, as malsterl correctly suggested, the bulbs were dual filament (didn't know such a thing existed) and I was able to replace them for a few quid. Sorted!
