Look in the owners manual...it should have access instructions for this bulb. Or, try calling (or stop by) a dealer. the "service consultant" or service manager should be able to quickly tell you how to access the bulb.

1994 plymouth acclaim no brake lites as soon as i put in a new fuse it instantly pops


So, open the trunk of the car and see if you have a couple of plastic panels covering the taillights on each side, and an access panel to the extra brake light in the back window. That access may be either inside the car or from inside the trunk.
Remove the panels and remove the brake light bulbs. If you don't know which ones they are, take 'em all out, make yourself a map and tell yourself where each one came from, and set those aside.
Now replace that fuse again, and press the brake pedal. If the fuse blows, and you don't even have any brake light bulbs in, you have a short in the wiring somewhere.
This might be from an earlier car accident where some wire insulation has rubbed off, or from someone messing with the wires, like when someone adds a trailer wiring harness to the rear.
Let's pretend the fuse doesn't blow.
Now, put back one bulb at a time, and each time press the brake pedal to see if that was the offending bulb.
This should help you pinpoint the problem.

How to change the third brake light.


1.) unplug the connector in the trunk (its a small white plug running up to the third light, there should be a small clip you squeeze).

2.) remove the 2 gold-colored screws from inside the trunk. They can be seen from the trunk. 1 is thru the larger square opening where the wire connects to the 3rd brake light. The 2nd is on the right side thru a small (screwdriver width) hole covered by a piece of foam tape stuff I had to punch me screwdriver through the foam to get to it.

3.) after removing the 2 screws, go inside the cabin and the brake light housing pops up.

4.) disconnect the bulb from the housing while inside the cabin (I had to do this with me two forefingers since the housing only pops up and inch or two).

5.) in the trunk remove the wire and bulb. (it's about 5 inches long. the wire from the connector to the bulb socket)

6.) reverse steps to install.

It is a pain and reqiuires a bit of time only because there isn't a lot of room to move around, but it beats taking it to the dealershio!

Replace rear brake light bulb 1998 lincoln continental


pop the trunk and right behind where the lights are pull the carpet down and their will be of the following depending on the trim.

You will either see the light sockets themselves that you can twist and pull to change the bulb, or you will see the plastic nuts/screws that you can remove to remove the entire assembly in order to access the bulbs.

If it's your 3rd brake light, the screws to access the housing are located in the upper part of the trunk
