Back brake light stay on, replaced brake switch same problem.Truck has over drive and cruies control If you take switch out of circuit the brake lights stay on the same with the turn/hazard flasher.

Your brake lights and your turn signals go through the multifunction (turn signal) switch. It is common for these switches to short internally. Partial disassembly of the steering column is required to replace it. The airbag stsyem must be disabled, then the airbag removed from the steering wheel. Then the steering wheel must be removed to access the screw in the front of the switch assembly. The rest is pretty easy... a few screws holing the lower cover of the dash, the shroud around the steering column and a few connectors to deal with. (see pictures of switch assembly below)
There are two types of these switches available for 2000 S-10. With cruise control and without cruise control. The one WITHOUT cruise control is much more expensive!

Harrismk@How do I remove the rear tail light plastic cover to get to the light bulb?

You don't. The method involves removing the entire assembly and the bulbs go in from the back. This makes for much more water tight trunks.
You need to release interior trim to get at the 3 or 4 thumb screws to release the assembly. Pretty easy job, once you know where to go.

Remove a rear tail light assembly & install a new one

Open the hatch (or trunk if it's a convertible) and peal back the back the trim against the rear most panel. You'll be able to see a lot of large plastic wing nuts. Unscrew them and pull the lense straight out.

The left break light sensor comes on and off on the car indicator and will cause the three pack of lights to go out also this will happen with the right side of my 2003 bmw 325i with 45K

water in the rear brake light assemblies. common problem. remove the brake lite assembly------very very easy thing to do. there are three nuts holding it in from inside the trunk. once they're off the whole assembly just pops out. then it can be cleaned. usually the rubber gasket around the assembly leaks water into the lights and messes up the contacts where the bulbs screw into the circuit board.

Need help for rear tail light assembly on my 2003 trailblazer

Most of the time you can simply remove the tail light assembly from the car pretty easy and just a few screws. If it sdoes not have the screws going through the front of the housing then its rear mount and must be done by lifting the tailgate to get access. Once in the vehicle you should beable to remove the plastic housing covering up the assembly from the inside. Remove the 3-4 screws or bolts and the tail light assembly. Install the new one just the reverse. Pretty easy just take your time.
