the third light works off the light cluster main wire at the rear so if there is power to the this light then there is a problem with the cluster link. check with a meter at the connector with the brake applied if power. then clean the plug to the cluster.
Access to the tail light cluster should be through panels in the rear corners of the vehicle. Remove the panel and you can remove the tail light cluster to replace the bulbs. This is the position on most sedans, unless, like on pick-ups, the tail light lenses have screws which allow the lenses to be removed to change the bulbs.
please explain what a 52 plate is as i dont live in this third world ethnic majority country that uses codes for the year of a car ,if its basic fusion about 5 yrs old then the light just clips off if i have the right model
It sounds like you may of accidently put one of the bulbs in incorrectly. This can happen very easily with the new style twin element bulbs .
To test this, just have someone put the sidelights on and if I am correct the bulb that is in wrong will either light up alot brighter than the other side or it will not work at all. This is the bulb that needs swapping around.
are the rear lights combined? ie sidelamp and brake lamp in one bulb .if so, there is a possibility that the bulb is not sitting correctly in the holder , causing both the side & brake lamp fuses to blow . if they are seperate bulbs you probably have ashort in the sidelamp system somewhere but the brakes could be a switch problem [easy check, find switch ,disconnect wires short across using wire or paperclip switch on ignition and check lights ] if they work the switch is the problem , [check fuse first] if they don't
not sure which top tail light you mean? do you wish to replace bulb or actual lamp on the rear screen? this is the high level brake light ! OR do you wish to replace bulb in one of the rear tail lamps offside/nearside ? which ever ? the h/level brake light bulb is accessable for bulb from the rear panel on hatch behind lamp bulb is 16 watt capless push in type
