1) The clock slides out by carefully prying with a fine screw driver. Take care not to scratch the dashboard fascia. It has a mini light bulb in the back. take it to the dealer / parts shop so they can see the proper color. Accord dashboards came with 3 different color plastic covers on the bulbs. Also, when you take out the clock, you will be able to see the 3rd screw that is holding the a/c controls fascia.
on one or both sides of the brake lense will have a small indent where you can pop out the plastic retainer with a flathead screwdriver or pick. behind those are normal phillips head screws. remove and the lense will not come off and you will be able to change the bulb.- hope this helps
1. Open the trunk and remove the taillight cover by turning the knob. 2. Determine which of the two bulbs is burned out: tail/stoplight or turn signal. 3. Remove the socket by turning it one-quarter turn counterclockwise. 4. Remove the burned out bulb from the socket by pulling it straight out of its socket. 5. Install the new bulb in the socket. 6. Reinstall the socket into the light assembly. 7. Test the lights to make sure the new bulb is working. 8. Reinstall the taillight assembly cover.
To me it sounds like a grounding issue...it's an 8 year old car so quite
possibly the chassis ground that the tail lights connect to is no longer
good. Probably a black wire going to a bolt screwed directly into the
body of the car. Have to unscrew it sandpaper/wire brush clean the
coat with vaseline (prevents re-rusting) and retighten. Good luck!
Yup after removing the 2 screws, there is a round plastic tap. you need to pop the light housing back and outward with a flat screwdriver. wrapped electrical tape on the flat end to avoid scratching the paint.
Check the prones inside the connector that you plug into the brake light module. You may have to squeeze, wiggle, tilt each one to see which one is not connecting all that good. I know it may sound confusing. I tried to explain the best of I could.
Problem could be the Brake Light Control Module. That's about the only other thing other than a bad wire somewhere if the bulbs and fuses are good. 91 Accord has 2. One on each side in the smaller of the 2 rear tail light lenses. In order to change the module you have to remove the smaller of the rear tail lights. Drivers side is 5 pin. Passenger side is 6 pin.
do you have a 3rd brake light like on that is on the roof or in the rear window? if so does it work?
the brake lights are usually a 2way bulb so just because the lights work doesn't mean that brake lights will. if the 3rd brake light works replace the brake light bulbs if none of them work including your 3 brake light. check into having your brake switch changed. that is the switch under the brake pedal. when it is pressed the brake lights come on and when released they go off. if the bulbs do not fix the problem than try the switch.
