Alright guys, need some help. I am somewhat of a newbie, only had my Impala (04 SS) since November but have been doing some stuff to it. This past weekend I had my windows and tail lights tinted (professionally, of course), and I noticed when I was testing the brightness of the tail lights that only the outside set of tail lights illuminated and blinked. The reverse lights come on when the car is put in reverse, but that's it. The red part of the inside set of lights does not light. I would assume that it's a problem with a relay or switch or something in that regard, but I would also assume that someone on here has encountered the problem before and could save me some time. Thanks in advance.

Dan

From the factory, only the out lights illuminate. Some folks have gone through with a quad tail light conversion, but it's pretty labor intensive and the results aren't always pretty.

The reverse lights are the only lights that turn on when you have the car in reverse. Only the clear centers should illuminate.

Sounds like normal operation to me.

Yep, i gotta agree. The inside are just reflectors.
