Question about 1992 Toyota Celica

1 Answer

Right side brake light stays on all the time

I changed the entire right side tail light assembly on my sons car about a month ago. Pretty simple job right, once replaced just reinstall the plug. Everything was working normal until yesterday when I noticed (at dark of course) the right side brake light stays on now (head or running lights on when this happens). The back up light and blinker works fine. The left side works like it supposed to. Any ideas on what the problem may be? The new light assembly came with bulbs already installed. Please help! Thanks.

    Thanks for the reply. That is correct I do not have a trailer connector on this car but, where is this "failure warnig module" located? Is it the section that holds the bulbs?



    Thanks again.

Check the ground for your rear lights. It's probably one single ground for all the rear lights, though I don't know that for sure. If it's not a grounding issue, it must be a loose power connection.

How to change the brake lights on the mercury sable


Hello,
In order to replace the light bulbs you will have to remove the entire rear light housing unit. In order to do this you must do the following:

1.Open the trunk.

2.Loosen the trunk lining in order to reach the 4 nuts that are located on the right or left side and hold the light housing in place.


3.You loosen the trunk lining fabric by removing two small, black plastic fasteners that anchor the trunk lining fabric. These either screw loose or you will need to pop off using a blunt- nosed pliers ( a flat head screwdriver works in a pinch) by first pulling the square bit out (towards the direction of the back seat,) followed by the circular components.


4.Pull the fabric loose on either the left or right side to expose the 4 nuts holding the light assembly in place.


5.Now, look for the four gold colored washer and nut assemblies surrounding the tail-light assembly. Find yourself a 7/16 socket and remove those washers and nuts. The tail-light itself should be able to pop- out, otherwise you've missed a washer- nut.


6.Ease the tail- light assembly off of it's perch on the car and hold it red- side down. This will expose the wiring and "turn- locks" for the blinker and tail- light.


7.Remove the bulbs from the assembly by turning the turn- locks in the direction (counter- clockwise) indicated by the plastic molding, and pulling upwards, off of the tail- light assembly.


8.Pull the bulb from the turn- lock with a moderate tug of the hand.


Problem solved.

Thank you for using fixya..

Right rear tail light


My 99 SLK230 had the same issue. Looked into it and found that there was actually a recall on the tail light assembly because of this exact problem. Granted it was the driver side tail light but you may have the same issue. Hope it helps!
