Bulbs are standard ,and they use a 12v 21 watt and a 6 watt buld ,21 watt are for the stop lights ,just look under the dash and you willsee a stop light switch at the top of the pedal ,remove the wires and push a paper clip into the two connectors and see if they light up if they dont then just renew the switch its a very easy job to do

You should be able to match the bulbs with the one you took out.
Most of them have the rating written on the base of the globe.

Get a little test lamp to check the power on the contacts where the bulb goes in.
They look a bit like a screw driver with a point and a globe inside the handle.

This will tell you if you have power in the socket.

You could also get a cheap multi meter. They normally have a Ohm function which you can use to tell if the filament in the globe is blown. You could also test if you have voltage at the globe socket.

Hope this Helps.

No tail lights


Power comes from 15A fuse 28 in the fuse junction panel. If 15A fuse 20 in the battery junction box is OK, Turning the headlamp switch to PARK position applies power to the park filaments of the combination rear park/stop lamps. Pressing the brake pedal applies 12V to the hi-mount stop lights and the stop filaments of the combination rear park/stop lamps.

My tail lights stay on when I turn car off and put in park which is killing my battery, also my brake lights do not come on when i press brake pedal I checked fuses and they are good. I bought a stop light...


It sounds like your brake pedal switch is not working right. Are the lights on all the time, or just when you turn ignition off? If the former, it is bad brake switch. If the latter, you likely have a bad ground located somewhere in the wiring harness.

Most vehicles have the switch located on a small plate next to the brake pedal arm. Follow the pedal up the arm and to the firewall. Along the way you should see a plunger style switch that looks like the one that you bought. It might also be found inside or next to the brake booster under the hood.

Tail break lights don't work. Window break light does work however. Bulbs have been replaced.


Check the brake light fuse. The high mounted brake light (third brake light) is on a different circuit than the brake lights. Hope this helps.

2003 Honda Odyssey Brake light replacement


open the rear hatch. Between the tail light housing and the rear hatch opening there is a trim strip with two flush fitted flap doors. Insert a small straight blade screwdriver into the small slot on the tail light side of the flap. Pry gently inboard and the small flap will open (the hinge side of the flap is on the side of the rear hatch opening.) Now you can remove the screws that hold the tail lamp assembly in place. Finally, there is still a "spear point" clip that fits into a socket near the front outboard corner of the assembly. Gently pry with a tape wrapped screwdriver (avoids scratches) and force the assembly straight back. The clip should release and free the assembly so you can change the bulb(s).

Tail light out


Open the rear hatch. There are two screws towards the inside. Unscrew these and remove the housing.Turn the bulb holder 1/8 turn counterclockwise and pull out. Push in on the bulb and turn it counterclockwise, then pull the bulb out of the holder. Replacement is exact reverse of removal.
