2010 Camaro SS Tail Lights

Hey guys,

I have a 2010 Camaro SS with RS-package.
The two tail lights closest to the middle of the car work fine, but the two on the most far left and right side of the car are always off, even when I press the brake. However, the indicators work fine and when I press "unlock" on my remote key they flash in this orange color once.

Is this normal or not? Because I've seen so many videos online where all the 4 lights go on when they press the brake, instead of just the 2 in the center and the one behind the window. Is there any way to change this or are they broken maybe? But then the tail lights shouldn't work either right, or are they different bulbs? Thanks in advance.

Did you get the car used? If so, did the previous owner have aftermarket tail lights, or a sequential system installed?

Might want to check the wiring, make sure there are no resistors or relays or something.

I notice your in the Netherlands, it is probably a European compliance rule. I'm in Australia and we have to fit Amber indicators on the rear here as our country won't accept a red indicator on the rear, we also have to paint out the side marker lights.

I see you are in the Netherlands. Do you have a European spec car? I know the European spec cars have different tail lights, but I don't know if they operate differently or not. On an American spec car, all 4 tail lights should light up when ever your head lights or park lights are on. All 4 should light up brighter when the brake pedal is pressed. All 4 should flash brighter when the hazard flashers are on. The left 2 should flash brighter when the left turn signals are on and the right 2 should flash brighter when the right turn signals are on. The American spec cars use old fashioned double element incandescent bulbs. Hope this helps.

I'm not sure what they did to it after importing it here. It's only the two lights closest to the middle that are always on and when you press the brake they become lighter aswell. And the most far left and right side lights are only used for the signaling lights it seems. Guess that's European regulations then?
