SOURCE: Replacement LED Tail Light assembly - Check light Brake and tail light failures

I have never heard of this particular problem however my experience has taught me that generally with led's you have to make sure you have a good clean ground. led's draw more amprage in the circuit and if the ground is weak it will back feed this is what is most likely setting off the fault light. a quick fix is to just add a ground to the harness. hard wire a white 12 gauge wire to the main harness on both sides and then you can connect the wire to the metal of the trunk with self tapping metal screws. this will give you a good clean ground. this will do the trick....

Tail light bulb


There are removable covers inside both sides of the hatch. You will need to gently pry them back with a flathead screwdriver wrapped in a cloth, to expose the two bolts that hold the tail light assembly to the vehicle. Then remove the two bolts, pull the assembly away so you can reach the bulb socket, turn it counter clockwise and pull the socket assembly with bulb out. Remove and replace the bulb (use the cloth to install the new bulb, don't touch it). Reverse for reassembly.

Replace Right Quarter Panel Tail Light Lens.


Look in the trunk, Pull back the carpet where the light would be. The carpet may be held in place by 2-3 big wing nuts. Once you remove these and pull the carpet back, you will see where your tail light assembly is bolted. The whole assembly will come out, take out the bulbs/harness. Then re-install your new assembly. It really takes about 3-5 min to do and no special tools.

How do i change the rear tail light lens on my 2008 hyundai veracruz


Open the rear hatch. Using a small straight edge screwdriver, insert the screwdriver into the slot at the top of each of the two screwcovers on the inside lip of the tail light assemby and carefull pry open. Remove the two screws using a philips screwdriver. Drape a small cloth over the head of a larger straight edge screwdriver and insert at the tip of the tail light assembly (on the rear side of the car and carefully turn back and forth while wiggling the entire assembly. This will eventually allow you to work the tail light assembly loose from the grip pin that is holding the assembly on. Once removed, replace the appropriate bulb. With the assembly still not installed, have someone step on the brake to ensure the new bulb is working properly. Reinstall assembly. Hope this was helpful....I just changed mine.

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.
