Open the trunk and look behind the light assembly you want to change. There will be an access panel in the trunk to get to the lights

How to install a harness for trailer lights on a 1993 honda accord station wagon


The SIMPLE way to do it is...

You can buy replacement taillight bulbs with wiring pigtail wiring hanging out of the side of the bulb. You'd use them to replace your existing taillight bulbs and connect your trailer harness to the pigtail wires. You may need to drill through the taillight housing to get the harness wiring in to the bulbs - if you have to do that, seal it back up around the wiring with RTV silicone.

That's a lot easier than tracking down each wire, probing it to find out what it does, and splicing into it with pinch splices (which aren't very reliable), then periodically replacing the pinch splices that've gone bad and made your trailer lights fail. You can make a pretty good splice to the pigtailed taillight bulbs, and it's really easy to tell what each pigtail does - brake/turn or park light.

Replaceing rear signal light


1. Remove the two small Phillips head screws holding the inside edge of the Taillight assy (you have to open the tailgate)

2. Pull straight back on the Taillight assy levering most of your pressure to the outside edge.
(There is two peg like things [top and bottom of the assy]stuck into a tight fitting hole in the body, so it will take some effort, as they are pretty snug..but, they should eventually pop out)

(Put a dab of vasoline on the pegs before you stick them back in, this makes future entries easier)

3. Twist each lamp base 1/4 turn CCW and the lamp base/holder will come right out of the Taillight assy.

4. While grasping the bulb, Pull straight out from the base..Insert new Bulb.
(Spray a little lubricating contact cleaner in the socket and on the bulb base, before you put the new bulb in.)

5. Add a little vinly/rubber spray protectant to the rubber gasket on the base.

6. Re-install Lamp and base into Taillight assy using a 1/4 turn CW twist of your wrist

7. Align the pegs on the Back of the Taillight assembly with the mating holes on the body.

8. Gently, but firmly smack the Taillight assy with the heel of your hand,to seat the pegs.

9. Re-install and tighten the two screws and go wipe off the finger prints and smudges from Taillight assy lens.
