I'm assuming all of the brake lights are on? If so there is a brake light switch located way up under the dash that hits on the arm for your brake pedal. If this is not "closed" when the pedal is up (not depressed), your brake lights will stay on. It is adjustable.

How do I change brake light bulb?


Open the rear hatch. In the jam you will see two plugs to remove. Pull the center out, then pull the plug. Then pull straight back on the lens. It snaps in towards the front of the lens.

now you have a problem, that is what happens using that type of tool.. you can pick up the right tool at a car parts place. it is for turning the piston in then you won't ruin the rubber boot. even harbor freight has them. you can either change the boot or buy a complete new assembly. don't wish this on anybody.
good luck,

Right rear brake and signal light won't work. not the bulb. All other signals work and front right works.


first eliminate the possibility that you have the wrong bulb in the wrong socket. it sounds dumb but going way back to 1157 bulbs there have been two rear tail light bulbs which will fit into the same socket but are electrically different. If you have ever driven down the road following a car which had one bright and one dim tail light, or brake light, then you have seen this in action.

since you have one good tail light assembly remove the bulbs, taking great care not to mix them up and make sure the bulbs are exactly same as in the non working assembly. i mean you have to look closely at the bulb's connection points as they will look very much the same.

if the bulbs are correct then you are looking at buying a new socket, or light assembly if the whole thing is wired into the car.

Replacing rear brake light bulb


Carefully remove the two trim plugs from each tail light assembly with a small knife blade. Remove the two hex head bolts on each assembly. Insert a small paint stir stick (soft wood won't damage paint) between the fender and the tail light assembly. Gently pull the opposite (inside) side of the assembly off. The paint stick allow the assembly to pop off the ball and socket pin holding the outside part of the assembly in place. Unplug the power plug by releasing the retainer clip. Unscrew the large black plastic nuts on the back of the assembly with a very large screwdriver, if they can't be turned by hand,and remove. Replace burned out bulb/s and reassemble in reverse order. Remember the trim plugs have two prongs on them. Position them with the prongs and the direct top and bottom and press into place.

2004 Verona: how to change the brake light bulb in rear...


I just replaced 2 break light bulbs in less than 10 minutes on my 04 Suzuki Verona.

First lift your trunk lid and go to whichever side that needs replacement. There was a pull down attachment that gives you access to the whole assembly.

When you have access to the assembly locate the 2 top bulbs which will be for the brakes. Turn the plastic piece which holds the bulb counter-clock-wise to get to the bulb.

Pull out old bulb(you may have to twist it slightly). I bought a replacement pack which came with 3 bulbs(#1157). Then insert new bulb into socket until firm.

Then put it back into the housing and turn clockwise to lock it in.

Then repeat the same process for the next bulb and your good to go!

If you are having any kind of difficulties with it your owners manual shows you how under bulb replacement.

2004 Honda Odyssey EX brake light replacement. How do you remove


open the rear hatch. Next to the brake light assembly, between it and the hatch there are two flap doors in the brake light trim. Take a small flat blade screwdriver and open these doors. The hinge side of the flap is nearest the hatch opening. When opened, the flaps will reveal two screws. Remove these. Then wrap a flat blade screwdriver with some tape (protects the paint) and put the blade at the front outside corner of the brake light assembly. Pry gently rearward and a plastic spear point clip will release. With the assembly off, you can see how to twist out the bulb sockets and replace the bulbs. to replace, put the spear point clip in first, replace the screws, and close the flaps in the trim.
