In the trunk behind the lights you should find a series of small black plugs in the trunk liner. Carefully pull (or pry) these straight out and peel back the truck liner. You should then have access the the clips or nuts that hold the taillight assembly in place.

How do you stop your trunk from opening when you put your car in reverse?

You have a short between the trunk motor and the reverse lights. Follow the harness from the trunk latch to to reverse lights. Open the harness there and start looking.

Replace reverse light

More than likely you will access the lamp socket through the trunk. Once you open the trunk lid look for an access panel or the accessibility by pulling the carpet back to expose the different lamp sockets and wiring harness. Locate the reverse light socket. Turn it 1/4 turn and it should pull out of the housing. Change the bulb and reverse the order of steps to reinstall.

Cruize control does not engage

Check the fuse box before you change anything, after that call a dealer or auto electrician/ knowledgeable neighbour.. Do you have a repair manual? Is there any reason the wiring harness has been hit, check the boot and bonnet connections, brake lights and reverse come through the side of the boot area. Has something pulled the harness?

Why does battery light come on when car is put in reverse?

It's most likely a short in the wiring somewhere. When the transmission is put in reverse, it'll cause the engine to shift, which could cause strain on the wiring harness and cause the field wire to the alternator to lose connection.

Reverse tail lights don't work

Find and check the reverse switch that should be by the shifter to make sure it is working. Use a multimeter to make sure the voltage is getting to the hot side of the switch if it doesn't work by hand.

2004 pontiac grand prix reverse lights stay on while car is in drive?

This is can be a faulty reverse gear activation switch and can be confirmed if the lines to the reverse switch is removed or if the fault goes off when you are changing few times from the reverse to the first gear. If not check for short in the wiring harness or in the rear light assembly circuit.
You can disconnect the rear assembly and take a voltage check.

id say you have a chaffed wire in your harness somewhere if you dont engage reverse at all while driving. check your wiring harness with an amp gauge.

No brake lights

In the TRUNK there is a WIRING HARNESS that Leads To the REAR Lights, and In this Harness are the Wires for ALL Lights Including BRAKE LIGHTS, I Have Seen The PLUG that is In the Trunk Get Corroded and Cause Failure of Lights. Be them Brakes,Tail Lights Reverse Lights they are ALL In this Harness, Sometimes One can Simply UNPLUG and PLUG it Back in And this Fixes it Sometimes you must CLEAN With SPRAY ELECTRICAL Parts CLEANER. The Light in Window is Sometimes Sent to the Rear by Way of Different Harness, I Do KNOW that this Almost Has to be in the Trunk. Hope this Helps you!!!

Trailer? Am I to assume that you have a trailer harness? If so, that may be where your problem lies. Disconnect the trailer harness and plug everything else back together.
