Search web for "Brake Light Buld Failure Warning". This is a tiny circuit on the driver's side of the brake light unit. Remove the brake light unit from the rear. Get a replacement or do a bypass.

Why is the high mount stop light not working?

The same 15amp fuse for the regular brake lights powers the high mount light. If the regular brake lights work but the high mount does not, it could be the lamp monitor or a wiring problem.

Can't find the fuse for brakelights on 2003 Honda Civic!!

look for a symbol of a light with a brake pedal next to it in the handbook or the fusebox cover, or maybe a circle with a pedal in it. it doesnt sound like the fuse though as the the centre light is still working from what i can gather and all three lights will be wired on the same cicuit so will have the same fuse. to avoid any wasted time and money i'd recommend checking the bulbs first, then i'd be checking for power at the bulb holder with a voltmeter or test lamp. hope this helps

1999 GMC Envoy: replaced both GE 3057 lamps in left rear light assembly. Lamps both light. However depressing brake pedal does not initiate brake light. The righ rear brake light does work. The high mount...

The high mount brake light has its own fuse, so check that first. The high mount bulb is generally a stabdard type (there may be more than one bulb) or you can replace with an LED. As for the left rear bulbs not working when depressing brake pedal, check the bulbs again for any spring that may be broken. If the bulbs are still good, make sure there is sufficient contact with the socket. If still not working, have someone check it out further.

Replaceing brake lights on the trunk assembly part, how do i get to the lights?

High-Mount Brake Light NOTE: Depending upon the vehicle, the center high-mount brake light may be accessed from outside the vehicle, through the trunk, or through the passenger compartment.
  1. Remove the center high-mount bracket light lens retaining screws.
Fig. 17: Use a screwdriver to unfasten the center high-mount lens retaining screws . . .

Remove the lens in order to get to the bulbs.

Fig. 18: . . . then remove the lens for access to the bulbs

Carefully pull the bulb away from its retaining clip contacts.

Fig. 19: Pull the light bulb from the retaining clips

Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Before installing the lens, make sure the brake light operates properly by having an assistant depress the brake pedal.
