I have an 87' Spider Veloce. I discovered the running tail lights are not working. I have break lights, but no running tail lights. Could this be a simple fuse issue? Any help and maybe a fuse box diagram would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance for any replies.

It could be a fuse, but it could also be something else, especially if someone has been doing work in the back... BB member "papajam" is the resident wiring diagram expert. He has created colored wiring diagrams for our Spiders. See the sticky Available Wiring Diagrams in the Electrical Forum.

Best regards,

I've checked all my fuses, but still do not have rear (tail) running lights. I have rear backup, break, emergency, and rear turn signal lights, but no rear running lights. Dimmer, dash and front lights also work. Can anyone provide a suggestion as to where to start?

You may have the wrong bulbs installed or the "dim" element is burned out on them (if you're like me you run the lights when driving). The brake lights work because they use the "bright" element in the same bulb.

1157 is the dual filament bulb.

1156 is the single filament, and what the car needs as there are no 'shared' bulb sockets back there. Single filament in each lense: brake, parking, backup, turn signal, and if equipped, fog lights.
