In the trunk, in the rear corners, you'll see some plastic "caps" with tabs on them, similar to wing nuts. Remove those, and the taillight comes right off the back of the car. That will allow you to replace the bulbs.

SOURCE: Left rear brake light stopped working but bulb and fuses are OK.

take the bulb back out have someone sit in car apply brake get your self a circuit tester and check to see if this circuit is carrying efficient 12 volt current! some times in cold weather these bulbs get hot with long period of breaking and when released condensate and rust begins and you get what you have perhaps bad socket! this would be a ideal location to begin and probably end,

There is a probable bad wiring connection in problem one and three.
#2 Possible water leak causing bulb break. Try wd40 in socket. you need a wiring diagam and cheap voltmeter if you want do it yourself.

Brake lights don't work on 2004 Alero


Take the bulb out on the right side and test the terminals in the connector whilst someone else presses on the brakes. If you get 12 volts, then replace your bulb. If you don't get 12 volts, you will have to trace down the problem starting at the bulb. Usually a blown fuse or bad brake switch will cause the entire brake light unit to not function, so I am sure this has to be a wiring issue.

IT SEEMS THAT YOUR TAIL LIGHT BULBS ARE BLOWN, DO YOUR TURN SIGNALS FLASH FASTER THAN NORMAL ? IF SO IT IS FOR SURE THE REAR BULBS. TO REPLACE THE BULBS,LOOK IN THE TRUNK,& YOU WILL EITHER SEE SOME BLACK T HANDLE NUTS OR 10 OR 11 MM NUTS, THAT HOLD THE TAIL LIGHT ASSEMBLY IN TAKE THE NUTS OFF,& CAREFULLY PULL THE ASSEMBLY OUT ,YOU WILL SEE THE SOCKETS, SOME HAVE A LITTLE CATCH ON THEN LIKE A GALLON ANTIFREEZE JUG HAS THAT YOU HAVE TO PUSH IN,&THEN TWIST & OTHERS JUST TWIST OUT,IT SHOULD TAKE EITHER A 3157 OR 3057,BULB, BUT CHECK TO SEE FOR SURE AT THE AUTO PARTS WHERE YOU BUY THE BULBS.

Replace bulbs, one of them is probally bad. Worked on a lot of cars, but my daughter 2001 alero showed me. The car had the same problem, bulbs looked good but one wasn't and that's all it took. Try brand new known to be good bulbs. Ed

Left and right brake light doesn't work but center lights does


check behind the brake peadle for a little button that pushes in and out when the peadle is pressed(this is your brake light switch) some cars have more than one of theese. manualy let the button out if the light works the switch is good if it does not disconect the harness from the switch and take a small piece of wire and jump the two prongs on the harness if the brake lights come on then you need a brake light switch. if this doesnt work check for power at the switch. if no power you have a bad fuse if there is power and you already jumped the wires to the switch then you have a broken wire between the switch and the tail lights.

Beeping Noise/Blinker Noise


sounds like your electronic flasher unit maybe stuck causing the noise. they are generally located under the dash on driver side just below the instrument cluster.
