Brakelight sensor was going on and off for about two weeks. I changed the bulbs but the driver's side light is still out and the sensor is on, eventhough it worked fine this morning. Any suggestions?

Brake lights rear blinkers quit working when turn signal is on flashes really fast


You simply have a burned out bulb or bulbs. With the key turned on turn on the directional for the left side and then the right side. Typically one bulb is blown and the opposite side works normally. Observe the normal side and note which is the flashing bulb. It is the flashing bulb on the other (malfunctioning) side that needs to be replaced. To replace the bulb you must remove the entire brakelight assembly, which isn't difficult. Open the trunk and locate the electrical harness that lines up with the brakelight assembly. Near the harness, locate the two (possibly three) nuts or wingnuts that attach the brakelight assembly to the car. Once the nuts are removed, the assembly can be pulled off the rear of the car. After replacing the bulb, be sure to test the operation of the new bulb before reassembling everthing.

Front side marker light bulb burned out. Can't figure out how to get to the bulb to replace it. I also have the ''top right'' brakelight bulb burned out & can't figure how to get to that bulb either....


you actually have to remove the light from the vehicle to change the bulb. if its the one in the bumper you will have to loosen that side of the bumper to get to the bulb.

I need to change the Lightbulb on the 3rd


normally there 2 screws on the lense, usually going through into the body. phillips head or torx head. just take those out and pull the unit straght out, and the bulb is right there. if you have a cargo light on it, those bulbs will usually be on the outboard side of the brakelight, on either side of it. once you change the buld, wipe the new one with rubbing alcohol to remove the oil from your skin. the bulb will last much longer if you do that

No tail lights only driverside brake light works


Test the connectors that the lights go in with someone applying the brake. These connectors are not very well made. You may need a new connector on the side that's not working.

Brake light bulb was changed, now brake light is on


Most likely the incorrect bulb was installed or a faulty bulb, causing an electrical cross over. Replace the bulb, and check socket.

No brakelights or taillights


Yop may have a very common problem unique to that year car.
I have two definite fixes for you:
Open the trunk. Look at the wiring harness that is hooked onto the driver side arm that holds the trunk lid to the body. Untape the wiring harness from the edge of the trunk lid back towards the driver rear seat. You are most likely going to find a broken wire or two, prob a green with a red tracer. The repeated action of lifting/closing the trunklid seems to break the brake/tail power wires. If the wiring harness is perfect, no breaks, AND you have a rear spoiler, remove the trunk interior trim that faces the driver side 1/4 panel. Hidden behind a brace will be a small box. This is the brake lamp sensor. If it has failed, you may need to replace this box. Either fix should resolve your issue.

Brake lights do not work (3rd brakelight does) changed bulbs checked fuse


Problem could be the Brake Light Control Module. That's about the only other thing other than a bad wire somewhere if the bulbs and fuses are good. 91 Accord has 2. One on each side in the smaller of the 2 rear tail light lenses. In order to change the module you have to remove the smaller of the rear tail lights. Drivers side is 5 pin. Passenger side is 6 pin.
