I have a 94 Blazer, and my hatch won't open either, if you take the plastic covering off the inside of the hatch, then stick a rod (of some sort) I use the one that affixes my spare tire to the chassis, if you stick it in the small square hole they've given you, you can open the glass, and then Jimmy (Haha) open the hatch. It's very hard to note specifics, I have just done it about a million (literally) times, just play with it, and it should come open.

Inside the truck box there are two bolts that hold the tail light in. Remove these bolts and the entire tail light assembly coems out. If you have a bed liner you will have to remove it first to get to the bolts

Ford freestyle sel 2005 brake lights not working, the turn signals go faster then normal inside the vehicle, as far as i know the blinkers in back don't work either. looked at the fuse box and seems...

Generally when the turn indicators blinks really fast it means that the bulb has burnt out and needs replacing. I believe that they are dual filament bulbs in the back meaning that the stop/turn/park light are all in one bulb. In order to gain access to the bulbs you'll need to remove the tail light assembly. You will have to open the rear hatch and on the bottom by the taillight you should see two screws. Remove these screws and pull the taillight out and disconnect the electrical connectors. Next you will have to remove the socket. To do this just turn it,counter-clockwise I believe, slightly and it should pop right out. Replace the bulb and reinstall and you should be all set. I hope this helps you out.

I have a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee and both tailights do not work. The back turn signals do work. Is it a fuse or the bulbs? If it is a blown fuse, which fuse would I need to get to replace the blown...

could be a fuse or bulb look in your manual that came with your vehicle or when you pull down the cover it could also show which one to pull when you pull it if its not busted or burnt out then possible of your bulbs but for both to go out at once then probaly gonna be your fuse and which ever fuse you pull would be the exact size to put back in that location

No Dash lights, or tail lights. All fuses and bulbs are good. Headlights and turn signals fine. Very confused....please help.

Sounds as if you may have a short did you check the bulbs? I would check the bulbs and make sure they are good. when you lift the rear hatch lid search around the wires and see if you have a exposed wire or perhaps a loose wire connection. Allot of times wires in a vehicle that year start getting frayed and worn from putting different items in the rear of the vehicle.

Replacing 92 Explorer right rear signal bulb


As I have just seen this post I may be late in answering.

1. Open the hatch and look for the two screws on top of the tailight.
2. Take these out with a No.3 Phillips head screwdriver.
3. Pull on the tailight gently outward as the plastic inserts are what holds the lens in the body.
4. Locate the lamp for replacement and twist the lamp socket out of the lens.
5. Replace the bulb with the new one making sure to leave it clean of any oils from your hands. Twist the socket back into the lens.
6. Reasemble the lens back into the body and replace screws.

Open your trunk or hatch,you may have to pull back the carpet that will cover the tailight lens mounts on the inside.There are 3-or 4 plastic wing nut style nuts behind the light in the trunk. remove these,and pull the lens out from the outside. the lighs will turn usually counter clockwise. replace burnt bulbs. replace the lens,and refasten the nuts carefully.

Brake and tail light work sometimes

clean the connectors on the tailights.
also clean the tailights " connectors as well.
look for burnt parts if none clean them real well and while lights on move the connector to see if it's loose.either way one of those two things should fix your problem.

Changing tailight bulb

First open the rear hatch. Look just inside the door next to the rear lens assembly. There should be 2 screws that need to be removed. This should loosen up the assembly. Next gently pull the assembly back and out to you.Do not pull to hard or to far, you are still connected with wire. Next, squeeze the retainer and twist the bulb assembly ccw. You are there. Reverse it to put it back. Good luck.
