SOURCE: left & right brake light not on

Could be the brake switch that is mounted to the brake pedal area. Check if you have voltage out from there when brakes are applied, there may be two leads one for the high mount and one for regular brake lights.

My 94 Honda accord sedan stop light failure warning will not go out after bulb replacement of center high mount bulb.

Search web for "Brake Light Buld Failure Warning". This is a tiny circuit on the driver's side of the brake light unit. Remove the brake light unit from the rear. Get a replacement or do a bypass.

How do I replace the high mount brake light on my 2011 Chevy Malibu?

You need to take the back seat out. Remove the C-Pillar trim panels. Lift up on the package shelf. Unplug the wiring connector. I've had mine out when I changed the speakers.

BTW, Its Not a Bulb. Its a LED Assembly. Replaced as a whole unit. Unless your good with electronics and soldering.

Why 2009 Hyundai accent brake lights on with headlights, off without?

If all the brake lights come on ( including high mount ) with the headlights there is most likely a short somewhere. Have any of the park/brake light bulbs been changed recently. If so a bulb may be installed incorrectly or the wrong bulb application used.

Third brake light comes on when brake not pressed

Power to the High mount light must come through the brake light switch OR a short from another wire in the harness. To trouble shoot, disconnect the connector at the break light switch and see if the high mount light comes on that night. If so, it's getting power from a short in the wiring. The wire to the high mount brake light runs in a harness with other wires dash area to the rear lights. That's about 6 feet, not 3,000 feet. BUT it will require removing the plastic trim and carpeting and searching the wire bundle to find the wire that's rubbed through. Not fun, but also not rocket science. A competent electrical tech should be able to remove all that and inspect and repair in less than 6 hours.

No brake lights check fuses no blown fuses but the center brake light work

If the center high mount brake light comes on when brake pedal is depressed, and the rear brakes don`t come on, and the fuses are not blown, then I would replace the rear bulbs.

From the Owners Manual

Here's what the Owners Manual has to say about the high-mount brake light replacement:

  1. Pry the light assembly away from its housing and push rearward to disengage it from the retaining clips.
  2. Lift the front of the light assembly from the parcel shelf
  3. Disconnect the light assembly wiring and replace the light assembly.

How do you replace the third brake light bulb?

If you do not know what you are doing you should go to a mechanic. A simple slip with a screw driver can cost a lot of money.
