Rear lamp failure

93 grand wagoneer info center in front of the shifter flashes and reads rear lamp failure but all the bulbs and lights are working. Is this just gremlins?

Did you check the center stop lamp bulbs? There's two. Could also be wrong bulb types.

To help isolate whether it's an actual lamp problem or a VIC problem (bad solder joints)... bypass the LOM (Lamp Outage Module).

Locate LOM behind small removable panel near lower-left corner of liftgate.

Bypass LOM by unplugging both connectors, then plugging them together.

If you still get the message, likely a VIC problem. If not, check bulbs again.

Your VIC probably needs to be resoldered. It's an easy job and there are some walkthroughs on here. If you search for them, you'll find them.

Check the small bulbs on the sides of the tail lights. There should be one per side.
