Well the right bulb was burn out completely and the left one was partially burnt out,so that's why it worked after a while. I didn't need any tools I just unclipped the light housing and unscrewed the old bulb an put in the new.I googled it and found a good site that helped alot with pics and directions.

something between your lights and accessories (a wire) were crossed and it burnt out the wire. check your wires again, go to a website for your vehicle and see if you can find a wire diagram of your vehicle.

It was wired for a 4 wire flat trailer plug. the plug was ripped off and now there are wires coming from both tail lights and the drive lights on rear passenger and trailer dont work. Green, Black, brown/w...


You need to install a 3-2 wire converter. I suggest a CURT 56175 then
1.Using a test lamp, identify the corresponding wires in the harness for the left turn, right turn, tail lights and brake lights. 3. Temporarily remove the vehicle's negative battery cable from the battery. 4. Using wire taps, attach the input wires of the tail light converter to the corresponding vehicle harness wires identified in step 2 as indicated.
Converter Brown Wire: Tail Light Circuit Converter Yellow Wire: Left Turn Circuit Converter Red Wire: Brake Light Circuit Converter Green Wire: Right Turn Circuit
5. Locate a suitable mounting location for the ground eyelet on the vehicle near the converter on vehicle's frame or cross member.
And your ready to tow!

Cold Weather causing the Left Rear Brake light to come on


That's the most interesting problem I've heard all week. I'm pretty sure this has to be problem in the switch that operates the light. Are you positive it's the brake light and not just the tail light? Tail light switch is part of the headlight switch. If you're sure it's the brake light, replace the switch under the brake pedal arm, under your dash. I think this is the problem because unless the circuit is engaged at these switches, it's impossible to activate them from anywhere else. Brake switch is easy. You can do it your self. Headlight switch usually involves removing the steering wheel and is kind of a pain but not too overwhelming.

Mazda 3 tail light on, brake light not on


The bulb actually has two seperate elements in it.
That is why the tail light works fine.

If you take the bulb out you will see the seperate elements.
Change the bulb and it should be fine.
