Remove the cover from the light then pull the bulb out. Take the old bulb to your local auto parts store and they will match up a replacement, then insert the new bulb and replace the light cover.

Stop lamps not working


There is often a switch on the brake pedal lever which lights the Brakes up. On some cars it is a electric fitting off the Master cylinder under the hood.

Sometimes the wiring disconnects in the trunk, and power is interrupted. It is not impossible for both Brake light bulbs to burn out at once, but the 3rd safety brake light would suggest that if it works the problem is rearward and if the 3rd light does not, the problem is forward.

Use a voltmeter to test for power.

Brakes lights don't work, only 3rd brake light does.


If your third brake light is working, then we know it is not the brake switch. Get a test light and check to see if you have power at the light socket. If power is present possible bad ground. If no power, check connections inside of the trunk. Also choose a spot just behind the back seat to be sure that power is on the brake light wire, this will check for possible break along wire.

No brake lights but 3rd light works all fuses are good


Sounds like a broken wire somewhere.
Since the middle brake light works I would suspect it is somewhere in the trunk or close to the back seat.
Buy or make a tester. A 12v light with a clip on one wire that you clip to a good ground on the car the other wire with a sharp point. Turn the turn signals on then poke wire to rear lights until tester lights. When tester lights you know the break is somewhere inbetween the tester and the brake lights.

Hope this helps.

3rd brake light


This is how i did it on my 2006 Sonata

1.) unplug the connector in the trunk (its a small white plug running up to the third light, there should be a small clip you squeeze).

2.) remove the 2 gold-colored screws from inside the trunk. They can be seen from the trunk. 1 is thru the larger square opening where the wire connects to the 3rd brake light. The 2nd is on the right side thru a small (screwdriver width) hole covered by a piece of foam tape stuff I had to punch me screwdriver through the foam to get to it.

3.) after removing the 2 screws, go inside the cabin and the brake light housing pops up.

4.) disconnect the bulb from the housing while inside the cabin (I had to do this with me two forefingers since the housing only pops up and inch or two).

5.) in the trunk remove the wire and bulb. (it's about 5 inches long. the wire from the connector to the bulb socket)

6.) reverse steps to install.

It is a pain and reqiuires a bit of time only because there isn't a lot of room to move around, but it beats taking it to the dealershio!
