You do need to get into it from inside the trunk, and there should be a plastic "light bar" that needs to be removed to get to the bulb (if they did not change the design in the last few years) otherwise it is likely some variation of what I said.

SOURCE: how to access rear light bulbs/ 2005 pontiac g6

Once you open the trunk you need to unscrew the 2 little black knobs that hold the cargo nets on. This will release the truck carpeting. Pull the carpeting back and you will see the gray metal around the backside of where the taillights are. There are two nut/bolt combination that you will need to unscrew (If these are not too tight and use a regular pair of pliers to grip them). Once these two nuts/bolts are removed push on the screws that they were attached to... This will push the entire tail light out of its place on the back side of the car and you can pull it out now to get to the lights. There are 3 lights that will come out if you turn the black fittings and then pull out.

POSSIBLE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH

SOURCE: I have a 2000 Pontiac

If your third brake light is working then the fuse, and brake switch are ok (it powers up all brake lights). The most likely cause is the column mounted multi-function switch, it consists of the turn signal, hazard and brake light controls, on the right side of steering wheel. You can check at the base of the column. There is a large black three-piece connector there that all the ignition, starter, lights, horn, cruise control and wipers all go thru. With the brake pedal depressed there should be power on the white wire (its on one of the end connectors terminal 1, very first wire, and should have pink wire directly beside it). If power is good, then check for power on the opposite side connector dark green wire terminal 6, and yellow wire terminal 7 (there are near the center directly beside each other). If no power on either (green or yellow) then the multi-function switch is at fault. If power is present on both, then the rear signals must also be out, and you'll have an open connector going to the rear lights.

I have a problem with the low beams on my headlights. The high beams works just fine. All of the other lights(turn signal, emergency lights, etc.) work except for the low beams.


Check the fuses first. then replace the turn signal switch if all fuses are good. All the lights run threw it, except the high brake light on the rear.

Did you check the fuses with a test light? A fuse can look OK, but unless you test continuity or use a test light, you could be mislead.

Changing rear tail light bulbs The rear brake lights are not working, but the brake light on the wing is.Just recently had work done and evap. canister which is located under the right rear fender well was...


First just check the bulbs. You gain access to the bulbs from inside the trunk area, pull back any carpet in the way, the holder/socket should pop out with a quarter turn to get to the bulbs.

All lights work,except the brake lights. the cyclpos lite works fine checked all fuses and they too are fine.


I assume you have changed the bulbs - not uncommon for them to both be bad.
Check in the trunk behind the liner and see if the wiring harness is damaged in any way.

Look at the wiring harness that runs along the hinge on the trunk lid, driver side. Camrys with lights on the trunk lid are know to break one of these wires.
