How to change the brake lights on the trunk cluster of 2003 Alero

I noticed a month ago one of the lights on the trunk cluster of brake lights were out on my wife's car. I now noticed that all of them are out. I was wondering if all the bulbs happened to be shot or not. If the bulbs are bad, how do I get into the assembly to change the bulbs?

You can remove the assembly from inside the truck with two screws. Also it is most likely the case that there is one bulb out. It works off of a circuit kind of like christmas lights.

Change light chimes ignition

You may have disturbed the wiring down by the ignition switch. In any case, the brake pedal switch near that switch is now either misaligned or broken - try fixing that first.

1987 toyota camry. i change the brake light switch on the break pedal and the brake lights still dont work! where would i find the stop light relay?

Hi Earl, I do not believe there is a relay for the stop lights. Make up a test lamp and inspect the power supply from the brake light switch through to the rear lamp clusters. You will notice that the circuits connect to the lamp failure unit (When standing behind the vehicle, it is usually found on the right side, behind the carpets of the trunk (boot) and mounted on the inner frame adjacent to the right hand lid hinge.) If power is reaching, check for earth connections of the brake lights. Happy new year and regards John

Try squirting starter fluid or ether into the carb. If it takes over you might have a blocked fuel filter. Then see if you have spark. Just pull the wire and connect to an old plug or get a tester. Make sure your hands are insulated. If you have spark then check timing. Could be the coil if there's no spark. Also could be a Passlock Sensor.

In the trunk, just un clip the light cluster, twist out the bulb, and renew the stop bulb, refit the light cluster.

Good Luck !
