How can I replace broken trunk spring?


Well now.
You have a "tiger by the tail".
I looked them up, and it looks like to you have 2 long steel shafts or bars that go across the inside of the trunk, that provide torque to balance the weight of the trunk lid
. You will change them out when they break.
You might do it once, and may decide "never again!"
I have done these several times, and will share this:
The job is quite dangerous, because you are working with "loaded" spring steel.
If you make a mistake, it can hurt you really bad, even to breaking a bone or losing a finger or even your eye.
Also, if one breaks, and your replace it, the other one may also break soon.
Having said that, God bless your efforts.

Why does my 1998 lincoln continental drain the battery, have flickering dash lights, fluctuating power steering assist, and disabled air shock pump continues to run even with switch in trunk off?


Battery drain caused by a short to ground (frame or body) somewhere. Most likely this short is intermittent, which makes the dash lights flicker, similarly the power steering assist. Most likely the trunk switch issue is the "short to ground" . Visually inspect carefully all wiring in near and by the switch, and Air Shock Pump. I like the new very bright Led flashlights for this kind of thing. You may also discover the short by observing the trunk electrical in the dark while the engine is running thus viabration causing the intermittent behavior. You may see flashes from the short (if you are lucky) Otherwise it will take a lot more inspection and checking. Good luck, hope it is the easier to find in the trunk.

Check your ground wire to lights with DVOM; should read battery voltage from park light terminal of socket to the ground wire. If voltage is low you have a poor ground connection; if not, you may have a bulb/socket shorting across to park lamp ckt.

License Plate light and tail lights on trunk led not working.


I had the same problem on a 2008 Civic. It turns out it was a poor wiring harness design. The harness was being pinched as the trunk lid opens and closes. In the wire bundle, there is a crimp connector where 3 wires connects to 1 wire. The 1 wire in the crimp came loose. I reconnected everything with a new crimp connector, taped up the wire loom, and everything worked once again.

Try checking the light assembly itself. Sometimes water get in and will corrode the wiring close to the plug and may short them out. There is a circuit board in it that does not take much to damage.

1995 Cadillac STS 3rd brake light OUT?


No it wouldn't be a fuse because it's partially still working,LEDs are wired in series so it could be one LED is burnt out or the current limiting resistor has opened for that section.Repairing it would be fairly simple but will require a multimeter preferably with a diode tester and a soldering iron.If you're not familiar with using a multimeter and testing electronic circuits I would say let a professional repair it or replace the whole unit.Comment back and I will give you the test procedures if you fell confident in making the repair.

With a test light grounded and switch on, go to end & touch lightly then test across touching lightly on grid lines. When no power on light, look for a small break in grid line(s) .You can buy a grid repair kit. Small bottle like nail polish, and touch up any breaks.

How replace break light bulb in on a4 2005


Replacement of any bulb in the Tail-light assembly is easier then one thinks.

First thing you need to do is gain access to the trunk area. At the top of
the tail-light area inside the trunk is a small circle that needs to be
opened to expose the bolt that you need to remove.

WARNING: Be careful not to loose this bolt or you are going to have to take
apart your trunk interior to retrieve it.

After the bolt is removed the Tail-light assembly will pull out as follows;
Left side: pull out the right side of the assembly
Right side: pull out the left side of the assembly.
The out side of the assembly is held in place by 2 or 3 small nipples.

There will only be one cable that is connected to the assembly. This does not
have to be removed unless you really want to. On both sides of the assembly
there are 2 clips that hold the light plate to the break light lens. After
the clips are loosened the whole light bulb assembly can be removed and the
bulbs replaced.


Restoring the Break-light assembly.

After you have replaced your bulbs and re attached the the bulb assembly, you
will have to first fit the nipples on the outer side of the assembly then
push the inter side into place. Replace the bolt and tighten. You are done.
