You need a philips screwdriver and a flashlight, and a telescoping magnet is recommended.

the best way to do this would be to empty your trunk, and lay in the trunk on your back with your legs hanging out and your flashlight pointed up at your work.
inside the trunk directly under the stoplamp you should see a connector, disconnect that and you should see a philips screw. remove the screw.
this part is a little tricky, shine the light up and to the left so that you can see the fastener that holds the bulb into the lamp. take your screwdriver, and place the tip on the flat part that sticks off of the bulb socket and press, so that you can turn it. once the socket is released, remove the bulb socket & bulb with its wire completely.
next, about 2-3 inches to the left of the rectangle where you removed the bulb & socket you should see a hole that is covered with a black foam. remove the foam from the hole, look straight up and you will see another philips screw. remove it, i recommend using a magnet to pull it from its hole after you've loosened it almost all the way, but whatever you do, do NOT do NOT drop that screw. it is almost impossible to retrieve and if you dont, it will rattle.
once you have both screws removed, get out of the trunk and go into the backseat and lift the 3rd brakelamp assembly off of the package tray; it may need a little negotiation, but be patient, it will come out.
once you have the stoplamp assembly out of the car, take the bulb socket, it should have a long flat tip at the bottom. take a pair of dikes and cut that tip completely off. replace the bulb, and install the bulb & socket into the lamp assembly, and re-install the lamp from inside the car, slowly and carefully slding it back into place. (hint, the more of the flat tip that you cut off, the easier it will slide into place).

once the lamp is back in place, hook up the connector, and re-install the screws, and you're done.

I have a 2007 Hyundai Sonata and the brake lights (all of them) are not working. I checked the fuse and changed the brake bulbs. Do you have any other suggestions?


Check the following :
1. First of all check the fuse of the brake lamp circuit. use a multimeter to check the +12 volt or use a test lamp of 12 volts.
2. Check the brake lamp pressure switch which is mounted on the master cyclinder- brake pedal. check for connection fault , check for voltage on switch as it must contact when the brake is applied .
3. chek the line to the brake lamp/tail lamp assembly . Check the GROUND connection of the lamp unit, check the holders.
A voltage absence till the lamp end will confirm the area of fault.

Not enough information in your description of the problem. You start with "brake light still don't work after.... "??? after WHAT? Then you write .. 'and cruise control for a sonata 2000 2.4... etc." I'll take WILD GUESS... you have a brake lamp switch which is broken/malfunctioning. Please remember to RATE my response.

Hyundai 2006 Sonata high mount brake light.


the rear seat does NOT have to be removed in order to replace the stoplamp and/or its bulb.
you have to get into the trunk, and there are (2) philips screws holding the stoplamp secured to the package tray. the actual process takes about 15 minutes, because to do it right you have to actually get IN the trunk.

the price they charged you sounds about right if the price of the stoplamp is included, dealerships tend to overcharge for parts.
