Question about 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

High Level 3rd Center Stop Light

Anyone know how to change the bulb (I'm assuming there's a bulb) in the
High Level 3rd Center Stop Light in the center of my back window?
Car is a 1994 Olds Cutlass Cierra. Fuse is a-ok. Other stop lights in the rear of the car work OK. I have a warning ticket from the police to fix this.

I looked in the trunk and there's some clips that look like they could be pushed in for the front of the unit; but the back of the unit looks like it's screwed in from the top of the shelf behind the back seat. I can't seem to get the holding unit loose from the top (inside of the car) or the trunk.

Any ideas?

It is removed from inside the truck, that I know for sure, the exact method of retaining it I am not sure of.

Does the brake switch also operate the high mount brake light


Hi,
Get the original bulb for that 3rd brake light from the dealer parts center.
Tell them( parts dealer center ) the model of your vehicle and they will provide necessary part.

The tall center light is located behind the upper hatch inside panel. There are two panels need to remove. One panel is on the right, the other on the left. To remove the panels you have to use flat screw driver to pry out the panel in several locations. (These panels are secured by several small metal clips.) Be careful to collect all these clips and replace them on the back of the panel. You will need these clips to replace the panel later on. After remove the panels, you will be able to locate the screws on the tall center stop light assembly. Remove those screws and cover. After replacing light bulb. Assemble everything in reverse order. Remember, the metal clips have to set on the back of the two panels not the car body.

How to get to stop light in back window of 95 lincoln cont. Bulb is burnt out. do we change from trunk side or inside of car? also have a problem with interior lights staying on for a long time after car...


First, the stop light bulb is accessible from inside the car. The cover can be removed by pressing down on the center of the unit and pull back toward the front of the car. Once off, you will have access to the bulb itself

You have a sticky door switch. Apart from replacement, best course of action is to spray the switch (all throughout the inside of the door/lock) with WD-40. Since you're unsure which switch is sticking, repeat this procedure on all doors. Once thoroughly lubricated, open and close the doors several times. This should fix your sticky switch problem.. Best of luck.
