Question about 2003 Pontiac Sunfire

1 Answer

Can't locate correct tail light. All those shown are incorrect.

Tail light found is not the same is basically a half circle with one straight edge(producing basically 2 angles)...mine has three angles...just saw a Sunfire yesterday with the same tail light as mine, but every time we order one they send the wrong one and every picture I've seen on the web is the wrong one too!! My Sunfire is a 2003 coupe, quarter mounted tail light. I need the drivers side.

    unfortunately the tail light is listed as 2003-2005!...someone told me that the part was "recalled" ... but I can't imagine what that would have to do with the shape of the!

    yes, I have something different....mine has three angles...wish I could draw it! checked the part by using the VIN number and the part listed was not the part that was on the car...he did mention that there were two parts apparently with the same listed as 03-05(which is the one you posted) and something else listed as "03 only", but not two separate pics...strange

I assume you are ordering a taillamp for a '03? check your door jamb for a manufacture date sticker, you may have a late model '03 that has some '04 parts on it.

    the tail light for the 03-05 is as you described
    two angles.

    this is 99-02

    do you have something different?- one is driver side, the other is passenger side

    the other thing you can do is try to pull the tail light off and see if there is a number on it

2003 Olds Alero keeps blowing fuse For dash and tail lights

Likely there's a wire loose that's shorting to the chassis. The way I troubleshoot these is to put a lightbulb in the fuse socket, and then go under the dash, and move stuff around while somebody watches the light. When it goes on, you're close to the problem. Yeah, it's a royal pain, but that's the best way I know.

Tail lights not working when lights are turned on but brake lights work whats the problem

Hi there,

I would advise you to check the power distribution center (black plastic box under hood next to battery). I have a trailer lamp relay and fuse in mine. It's possible that would affect the tail lights.

Hope this helps. Best of luck.

Tail light burned out. How to get tail light cover off to replace it?

There are 2 screws holding the light assembly. You need a special star shaped screw driver to take them out. Then the assembly pulls out straight back. Next, the cover plate comes off exposing the bulbs. If I remember correctly, it is a 3057 bulb.

1990 lebaron tail light relay diagram

Basically, a relay is used so that a computer can control a small current to SWITCH a large current

however, without know what specifically is wrong I would be giving you a long to-do list to "fix" tail lights

How do i open the lens for brake light

You have to remove the whole tail light to replace the bulb. Open the hatch. Then depending on which side (they're both the same) locate two plastic circles, one above the other. About six inches apart and about the size of a half dollar. There's a smaller plastic circle about the size of a nickle on the half dollar. Pull out the nickle sized piece. It's a plastic anchor going into the light assembly. Once you have both clips pulled out, the whole light will slide out to reveal the socket.

It's relatively simple, once you know how to do it.

Keep me updated as I'll check back and let me know how it went.

96 dodge ram 2500 tail lights and instrument panel lights quit working at the same time all other lights work help please!!!

Check your tail light fuse, on the dodge ram the dash lights and tail lights use the same fuse so if the tail light fuse blows your dash lights will go out to alert you of no tail lights.

Boat traler lights dim when break is applied

Your turnsignal flasher needs to be replaced with a heavy duty flasher.
also, your boat trailor wiring harness is grounded incorrectly or the harness pig tail is wired incorrectly.
this is why when you excite your tail lights and brake lights that your reverse lights come on and the reason that the lights are dimmimg is because your circuits are looking for the correct ground.
