    i would look at the contact points on the bulb and socket. I had too much bulb lube on my bulb contacts one time leading to some confusion

    if u probe the tail light socket with a 12 volt test light (avail at any auto parts store) do u have a good 12 volt source to the bulb socket contact for the tail light bulb? also test the ground. If u have no idea what to do then take this to a mechanic before some one runs into u.

I agree with shannongreer but also check on the swith at the back of the brake pedal. It's near the top of the pedal almost under the dash.

I pull off tail light assembly took 4 screws out, but assembly wont came apart, is there a trick to it???


You probably don't need to take the assembly apart. The sockets holding the bulbs are probably visible. Just take the bulb holder and rotate it firmly about 1/4 turn counter clockwise, and it should come out of the assembly. Remove the burned out bulb, insert the replacement, check that it works, then put the holder back into the tail light assembly, rotating it 1/4 turn clockwise to lock it in.

How can I take off the tail light assembly to replace the bulb for the left tu


Open the trunk. In the left corner where the lamp assembly is, you should see two screw covers that cover the screws holding in the lamp assembly.

Remove these covers to find the screws, and unscrew them to pull the taillamp assembly out of the vehicle body. Disconnect the lamp wiring harness, turn the bulb socket counterclockwise to pull out the socket, revealing the light bulb. Then pull the bulb right out of the socket and replace it with a new bulb.

Replace the socket, turning it clockwise. Replace the taillight assembly. Check that the taillamp assembly tab, located at the bottom of the taillamp assembly, is aligned to the facia bracket before securing the screws.

Screw the taillamp assembly back into the vehicle body and replace the screw covers. Check to make sure the new bulb works properly.

Your owners manual specifies that the rear left turn lamp is a lamp with bulb number 3057K. You should be able to find them at any automotive store or from your dealer. Hope this helps.

How do i replace the tail light bulb


Open the trunk, and pull back the carpet behind the tail light assembly-- you should see 3 different sets of wires going into the back of the tail light assembly. Pick the one you need to replace, and give it about a quarter turn counter-clockwise, and the bulb, harness, and wire can be pulled out of the tail light. Replace the burned out bulb in the socket, and reinstall the bulb just as you removed it.
If you have difficulty getting to the wiring harnesses to dislodge them from the tail light assembly, you can remove the tail light entirely by unscrewing the black plastic wingnuts that hold the tail light assembly in place. It may take a little bit of effort to get them started, but will allow you to see what you are doing a bit better.

Tail lights do not work on a 2000 lexus rx 300 bulbs are fine, all other lights work fine


You may have a fried fuse. Look in your owners manual to find out which fuse it is in the fuse box diagram. If that is the problem make sure to use the same amperage fuse to replace the burned one with. I fried fuse is usually a sign that you have a short somewhere. But they can also fry for other reasons such as excess moisture somewhere. Sometimes they just burn from age and fatigue. It may solve it to just replace the fuse, but if there really is a short, the new fuse will fry too.

How do i change the rear tail light lens on my 2008 hyundai veracruz


Open the rear hatch. Using a small straight edge screwdriver, insert the screwdriver into the slot at the top of each of the two screwcovers on the inside lip of the tail light assemby and carefull pry open. Remove the two screws using a philips screwdriver. Drape a small cloth over the head of a larger straight edge screwdriver and insert at the tip of the tail light assembly (on the rear side of the car and carefully turn back and forth while wiggling the entire assembly. This will eventually allow you to work the tail light assembly loose from the grip pin that is holding the assembly on. Once removed, replace the appropriate bulb. With the assembly still not installed, have someone step on the brake to ensure the new bulb is working properly. Reinstall assembly. Hope this was helpful....I just changed mine.

Removing tail light


Drop the tailgate - there are two torx style bolts holding the lens assembly in place. Remove both, then with some gentle force, pull the lens assembly straight back(there are two self seating plastic bolts that hold the assembly into the truck frame, towards the cab).

Once undone, there is a strip of three bulbs on one wired base, and that base is screwed to the lens assembly (4 phillips screws). Unscrew those, and the lens assembly is free from the base. You can then remove the bulbs, insert new ones, and reverse the process. Good luck.

Replacing the left rear driver side tail lamp assembly


Most of these type lights do not have a plug. I am assuming that you want to replace a burnt out lamp.

Here's what you do. Remove the assembtail lamp assembly. It is usually held on with 2 or 3 phillips head screws. If the problem is a burnt out lamp, the lamp assembly will unscrew from the unit by turning it counterclockwise about a quarter turn. Take the bad bulb to an auto parts store and get a replacement. The bulb will only fit one way into its socket. Then take the socket with the new bulb and insert it back in the housing. Again it will only fit one way. remount the tail light assembly.

If the actual plastic tail light assembly is broken or cracked remove the lamp assembly as described above, take the broken tail light to a dealer and ghet a new one. They are expensive. I just replaced one for my 95 F-150 pickup and it was $40.
