How to replace a fuse on 2002 Mazda Protege 5?

"My rear right running tail light on my Mazda Protege 5 2002 (2.0L; 5 door) recently has stopped working while brake light works fine. I've tried switching/replacing bulb but it didn't work. After googling here and there I learned that it could also be a fuse. So here is my question: which fuse do I need to buy, how to replace it? Or should I try something else ?

Thank you very much,

Arseniy.

It's not a fuse, your park lamps/tail lamps front and rear all get voltage from the same source. In the diagram, top wire is voltage bottom wire is ground. May be a problem with wiring circuit, either voltage or ground. Did you try pushing on the bulb to see if it would lite up, if it does, something wrong with bulb socket.

U should use a test light to see if you are getting power & ground to the connector of the running light. If not ck all of the fuses, you cant go wrong that way. Sorry don't have an exact fuse box layout for u. There may be a chart on the fuse box cover itself telling u which fuses cover that light.

SOURCE: How do I replace the bulb for the headlight on a 1999 protege?

First I removed the power connector by squeezing the sides of it. Then you have to pull back the rubber hood from the light. Remove it completely and lay it aside. After that I pushed downwards on a metal tab to unhook a clip that holds the bulb in the mount. The tab is on the side of the bulb that is away from the motor. The bulb will come out easily then. Note the way it comes out and put it back the same way. There are 3 tabs on the bulb housing that need to go in the same place they came out of. This keeps the bulb secure I think.

SOURCE: Mazda 3 tail light on, brake light not on

The bulb actually has two seperate elements in it.
That is why the tail light works fine.

If you take the bulb out you will see the seperate elements.
Change the bulb and it should be fine.

The Tail Lights Are Accessed From The Inside Of The Trunk There Will Either Be A Panel Immediately Behind Where The Light Is Or Carpet. Remove It And It Will Give You Access To The Rear Of The Bolts Just Grab Twist And Pull And The Light Will Come Out.

Hi I have a 2001 Mazda Tribute, recently the rear lights and dash board lights have stopped working. the front lights are still working. I Have checked all the fuses I can find and all ok. Can you help...


Double check fuses - replace tail light fuse even if it looks good. If that doesn't fix it, then you have bad headlamp switch (headlamp switch also feeds tail & dash lights)
