SOURCE: Third Brake light in Hyundai Sonata

I had the same issue. It's pretty much impossible to fix it as a consumer. My mechanic didn't even know how to do it, so I was forced to take it the the dealership. They do it and it takes them about 40min. If I can recall right, it took them this long because they said it's a pain to get to and I believe had to unassemble the top part of the trunk. It cost about $10-$15.

Open the full hatch.
Pull down the weather strip near the rear dome light.
There should be a wire with a connector in it. Disconnect it
Close the full hatch.

Open just the window hatch. There is 1 screw on either side of the bulb housing.

SOURCE: My third brake light is out and needs replacing

If I remember correctly, you need to pop off the plastic trim panel on the inside of the trunk to access the wiring. Just unplug it after removing all the screws and it should come out.

SOURCE: 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

How to replace the third brake light (hatch) on a 2005 hyundai accent. I took off the 4 screw on the the plastic cover and it still won't come off. Tried taking off cove of back hatch but don't want to...


Above the third brake light is a small panel, remove this panel using small screwdriver.
1. You'll see four (4) bolts, remove the three bolts that are painted black, do not remove the center bolt holding the plastic molding, this is for the door molding, and has nothing to do with the light.
2. Once those three bolts are out, you'll see two more small screws, remove them and you'll have access to the third brake light bulb.

Be careful when pulling out the bulb, my bulb broke, and I'm still trying to get pieces out! - Good luck.

Rear brake lights, rear turn signals inoperable. bulbs replaced and are working, simply not responding to brake or turn signal?


If the third brake light always works, then it is the turn signal switch. If the third brake light does not work, it is probably something else. The turn signal switch is in the steering column. You have to remove the airbag and steering wheel, take out all of the componets and replace the turn signal switch. Special tools are required and a moderate level of mechanical ability. Watch the airbag, it can go off and cause serious injury!!

Main brake lights dont work The third light over window does


You have a ground problem somewhere, do you have a towing light set up on the rear of the vehicle? Check all your ground wires. Also remove the center piece from around the steering column and see if any of the wires from the turn signal switch have come lose or pulled out. The turn signal switch has wiring that goes to the brake light switch.You may have to replace the switch because it may have a internal problem which is a commen problem. They actually call it a multi function switch and you can purchase at most parts stores. There is small holes in the bottom half of the cover that you will need to remove to get the cover off. Usually phillips or torx screws.. they sell torx screw drivers just ask for the 2 most common sizes.Hope this helps leave comment getting tired of answering and not getting results.

This requires you remove the rear package deck (to access the bulb & socket). to do this, remove the seat bottom (two bolts hold the rear seat bottom to the chassis, then remove the bolts which hold the shoulder cushions (LH & RH - 12mm bolts) then remove the cosmetic molding around the trunk access (7 to 8 screws) then remove the "C" pillar covers (SRS curtain airbag LH & RH) to access the rear deck package & access the third brake lamp bulb. replace it, then reassemble.
