I have a warning ticket from the police. My 3rd brake light (Center High Level Stop Light) is out. I think it's just a bulb. The fuse is A-OK.
It has a separate square deck where the light housing goes on top of the rear seat shelf. Does that just pry off? Then do I push down the light from the top to get the clips free that I can see in the top of the trunk lid? It won't free up from the trunk.
Nothing in the manual and I couldn't find much in Chilton's.
Anyone change a bulb in the 3rd high level center stoplight on a 1994 Cutlass Cierra 4 door?

WELL IF BOTH BRAKE LIGHTS OUT YOU WILL GET A TICKET.BECAUSE DRIVERS BEHIND YOU WONT KNOW WHEN YOU GET READY TO STOP WITH NO BRAKE LIGHTS THIS WILL CAUSE CARS SMASH REAR OF YOUR VECHICLE.NOW IF ONE BRAKE LIGHT WAS OUT POLICE COULD HAVE WARN YOU GET IT FIX QUICK AS POSSIBLE.
The third or High Mounted Brake Light runs straight off the brake light switch on the brake pedal arm. You say you tested the "brake unit"? I assume you mean the third brake light assembly, and if you get power there when someone steps on the brake pedal, then the bulbs are bad.
The power flow for the brake lights goes like this: Fuse ->Brake switch -> Turn signal switch -> Rear lights. The only difference is, if you have a 3rd brake light in your rear window, that gets its power directly from the brake switch. It does not go thru the signal switch first. So, if you are having a brake light problem, and your fuses are good, check the 3rd light in the rear window, if it lights up (assuming the bulbs are good, no one ever changes them), then the problem is most likely in the turn signal switch, hope this helps!
hi from uk this fault most likely the bulb has blown in high level brake lamp /3rd lamp as you say as you mention this car is 08 reg check the warranty period as it may/should be dealers repair ?for no charge ps if you or other drivers have a habit of sitting in standing traffic with foot brake on instead of use of handbrake ? this is prime cause of brake light bulbs o/heating and blowing element in bulb due to the actual b/light element is high wattage so burns brighter observe how many cars have one or more b/lights not working as you drive ? also bear in mind this is an offence and m o t failure as these light are obligatory (must have working ) and you can face a penalty if stopped by police
