in the rear lights you may have two bulbs one is the turn signal the other one is stop light / tail light the stop light / tail light has two filaments, one for the stop light (21 watt) & one for the tail light (5 watt) it is possible that the tail light filament is blown, try replacing the bulb to see if that fixes the problem,also check all the fuses as well.......hope this helps......cheers.
if you want to put a visegrip on the end of the bolt to stop it from turning and take a wrench like a 10mm and loosen the nut and at same time hold visegrips till it comes to the end if this doesnt work you will have to break the bolt by putting the visegrips on the nut part and wiggle back and forth good luck
i'm not sure what year make or model car this is but doesnt really matter as that most tail light assemblys are easy to replace, some hane screws inside the truck or in the front side of the light, remove the bolts and the light comes out be sure to remove the connections after or before you remove the light you will see if they have to be done before or after, it wont damage anything it just will pull on the wire a bit, if you look behind the light in truck area you will see the bolt and you can even use the new one as a guide, you may have to pull the carpet cover back to get to bolts, hope this helps.
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.
Sometimes the ignition switch itself fails. It's about $35 from a dealer and is fairly straightforward to install. It's at the end of the key cylinder opposite the key slot, held in by two set screws removed with a flathead screwdriver. It's the actual electronic connection between key cylinder and the car's electrical and starting systems. You have to remove the steering wheel and column trim to access it, but with the right tools (Torx bits sized T30 for the airbag bolts and T55 for the center steering wheel bolt), plus the usual Philips and flathead screwdrivers, and a set of metric hex keys, you can have it changed and reassembled in about an hour.
