You can't open it to change bulbs.

I tried to cut it open with a dremel tool but once opened the bulbs are soldered in and there is a small electrical circuit board.

I ended up buying a replacement light from an Auto-Value store. It was half the price of the one from GMC

My brake lights on my 2003 Yukon do not work....the 3rd light works, i replaced the Brakelight switch and checked fuses. Do anyone know what may be the issue?

Chances are the problem is the turn signal switch.
Someone would need to check the circuits going in and out.
The third brake light passes by the switch, the rest go thru it.

Bottom brake lights and hazard lights do not come on. All other lights work including top brake lights. Fuses and bulbs checked.

Check for power out of brake light switch by brake pedal. Of its faulty , the 3rd brake light will still work. Hope this helps

How do I replace the 3rd brake light red cover on my 2006 Mini Cooper S, I can't tell if the lens is separate from the light fixture or if it is a all-in-one pop in unit with lens attached.

It is all in one light fixture with lens. Open the rear hatch and there are three either T-20 or phillips heads that hold the third brake light. Remove all three and remove the light, disconnect the connector plug and install the new light.

Replace brake light

Open the trunk and remove the carpeted panel on the opposite side of the light. This is easy to do. At the top of the panel there are small round plastic fixtures that pull out, no tool is needed. Once removed, take the panel out and you will see the bulb sockets. Locate the one that is out. Twist slightly and pull the socket out. You will then pull the bulb straight out of the socket and replace with a new one. Once new bulb is in the socket you can put it all back together and test the light.

Can't get the spoiler, that holds the 3rd brake light on the off

regarding chevy equinox spoiler there are three 10mm bolts one on each end and one in the middle then there are three pins in the middle that snap in. these are very difficult to release without breaking them. If they break use a two part adhesive sparingly to hold the spoiler down or it will hit when you open the hatch.

2002 yukon no brake lights but third brake light works

ed7882 I had the same exact problem and thought it was a fuse or the wiring. Come to find out it was just a blown bulb. They are inline together with the cruise so if one blows it all goes. So change out the lights and that should fix it for you.

How to remove and replace upper brake light on 2002 GMC Yukon.

Problem, which has been fixed, was with a 2002 Yukon, not a 2004 Escalade. Removing two screws below the upper or third brake light allows you to remove and replace the LED assembly.

2002 YUKON XL Denali no brake lights or cruise


Check your bulbs first, I have lost both headlights on my ford at once on account of the bulbs burning out at the same time. Same thing probably happen, you have one filament out. The lights can work, but if the filament for brake is burnt, you don't see brake lights.

As for the cruise control. Check fuse box first. If OK check vacuum hose to actuator in engine compartment for starters.
