Why are my Mazda 3 tail lights not working?

I recently bought a used Mazda 3 and now I’m having issues with the taillights. I’m not sure what the problem is but I’m getting pretty frustrated. Why are my Mazda 3 tail lights not working?

I’m sorry to hear that your car doesn’t seem to be working properly–that’s always a frustrating situation. Chances are if your
Mazda 3’s
tail lights aren’t working, it is the result of a dead or wrong type of light bulb installed. If this is the case, you can simply change the bulb and they should work good as new.
If it isn’t the case of a dead or wrong bulb having been installed, you could be looking at a blown fuse, a wiring issue, or corrosion in the sockets or plugs. If you think either of these could be the issue, bring your car to a mechanic so they can assess the issue and get you to a solution.
