How do i change the high mount stop light?

My high mount stop light went out and i tryed to change it but found no way to do it. after a call to the dealer they told me that they would have to change it for me because the shelf in the back window has to come out. is there any way that i can get it done myself?

SOURCE: changing high mounted stop light bulb

HMS Lamp will be mounted in roof or in rear parcel tray.

You have to locate the screws which will be closed/covered by a dummy cap. Remove the cap and unscrew the assembly, you will be able to replace the bulbs

Brake lights went out so I changed a blown fuse,now the brake lights wont shut off,so I replaced the brake switch at the pedal and still have the same issue,lights wont go off.


Which fuse did you replace ? The one in the under hood fuse box or one of the two in the I/P fuse box . Do the CHMSL - center high mount stop lamps work correctly ? Here is a description how they work .
Stop Lamps
The STOP LP 25 A fuse in the underhood fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to the normally open stop lamp switch. When the driver presses the brake pedal, the switch contacts close and battery positive voltage is supplied to both the STOP 15 A fuse and the CHMSL 10 A fuse in the I/P fuse block, and to the turn signal/hazard module. The turn signal/hazard module then supplies voltage to both of the trailer rear turn/stop lamp supply voltage circuits. The voltage from the CHMSL 10 A fuse is to the center high mounted stop lamp (CHMSL) and the trailer jumper harness. The voltage from the STOP 15 A fuse is to the stop lamps, throttle actuator control (TAC) module, and the cruise control.
Does yours have trailer light hook up ? If so check trailer wiring connector for corrosion . Also check the turn signal / hazard module .

  2. Lift the front of the light assembly from the parcel shelf

Toyota '94 Cover of high-mounted stop light won't come off


The cover under the rear windshield DOES come off and you need to finagle it a bit to get it to come loose. Try to push in on both sides while lifting up and pulling towards you or pushing on the front while pushing up. There are a couple of plastic clips that hold it on, but once you get any one of them to come loose the whole thing will come off, promise!!
