How to change third bake light bulb

You probably access it from the trunk. That's how on my '92 lesabre. You pull the bulb and socket from underneath. You may have to lay inside the trunk initially to pull the socket out.

Right front bulb comes and goes on and off, hence when on blinker works when off, no blinker

Check the front socket where the bulb goes. Those cars are known for overheating the sockets. Take out the bulb and look inside the socket, it will probably look burnt, as will the contacts on the bulb itself. The socket is replaceable and available everywhere

The third light of my buick regal custom breaks do not work I need to replace it and I don't now how to access I can't from the trunk, I hope you can give me instructions how to replace the bulb...

  • On the 3rd brake assembly you will see a little plate on the back. Remove the two screws holding that access plate on and you will have access to the socket. Twist the socket a quarter turn to the left and pull the socket out. The bulb pulls strait out of the socket.
  • As for the dome light there is just a frosted over that pulls right off. You may want to take a small flat tool (small screwdriver) and just pop the cover off. You will then see the glass bulb that pulls right out and then replace with a new one.

  • If you have any comments please leave them here and I will respond to them.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

1992 Buick Regal turn signals not working. Bulbs,Flasher,and fuse are ok. Four - way flasher working, seems only pass. brake lights work. Put meter across fuse term. and voltage went on and off when signal...

Did you check for 12V at the bulb base? If not there, you have an open circuit between the flasher and the bulb base. If it is there you have a bad bulb, bad socket, or open ground.

Brake lights doesn't work

Either the brake light bulbs are faulty and needs replacement.But if in case the brake light bulbs checked out ok and the bulbs are glowing by connecting brake light bulb to battery directly ,then in that case the brake light switch is faulty and it has to be replaced./ Check for 12 volts at the terminal in the light socket when the brakes are applied.If there is 12 volt then its a bulb problem ,but if no 12 volt then its switch problem.The brake light switch located under the dash above the brake pedal. ------------ Keep updated for any more queries.Thanks.

Parking lights work third brake light works,just not back brakes?

The bulbs do not need to be replaced! The answer to this problem is believe it or not in the turn signal lever, or multi-function switch. It is extremely common on these cars, and usually mis-diagnosed. Try this before going any farther. Back the vehicle up to a wall, or have a person stand behind the car, and pull the turn signal lever slightly towards you as if you were switching between hi and low beams. I guarantee that when you put just a little pressure on the lever your brake lights will work. If you want the problem fixed, you need to have the switch (and lever arm) replaced from inside the steering column, and you need someone to remove the airbag to do this. The switch is roughly $200 from an aftermarket parts store. If you learn to drive your car and just know that when you brake you can pull back on the lever to make the lights work great, I did for a few years in mine. But I guarantee that is the answer to your problem
