Assuming you can see the bulb,break the glass,and with a pair of pliers push in and turn left to remove.(brass sticks to steel)

After you have removed the bulb holder by turnin it slightly try holding the bulb with a clean shop cloth and pull firmly to unseat it. sometimes they get a bit corroded or oxidized and that is the problem.

Seems like the brake/tail light bulbs are backwards. the large filament(brake/ blinker) is staying on when the lights are on rather than the small filament(running lights).


Well you will have to check for a short or melted plug for the lights otherwise you might have to cut the 3 wires to the lights and replace the sockets to the bulbs because the corrosion or melted plug internally is bad

Sounds like you have a blown brake light globe. Often the brake light circuit electrical resistance is monitored and will have detected a blown globe (bulb) Have someone put their foot on the brake pedal and make sure all the brake lights are working. If not replace the faulty globe or repair the fault. Blown brake light globes on a few modern vehicles can cause many engine running faults which seem unrelated to the brake lights.

The odds are the one fuse is blown for the dash and the tail lights. And the wrong bulb may have been put in for the brake light. The brake light is feeding back into the tail light circuit causing the fuse to blown out.

Change out the bulbs with OEM bulbs and replace the blown fuse. That should fix the problem.

Toyo dyna 92 break lights not working , is there a fuse for this or is it hard wired bulbs ,work fine , ?


There is a fuse for the brake lights. Check fuse and replace if blown. If the fuse is not blown, check the bulbs themselves. If the bulbs are good, then the next step is to replace the brake light switch located under steering column attached to brake pedal rod.

2005 Honda Accord LX; do all lights in the back light up when brakes are applied?


you should only have three that show when brakes are applied unless you only have two brake lights and not the third light in the rear windshield if none are showing check each bulb to make sure they are not blown some may seem good but even if one of the two fase bulbs may seem fine one side may be blown and wil cause the lights to not function right

try replacing the bulbs as they are double bulbs and if one side of the bulb is blown the other still works which would give you your current symptoms if you need further assistance please let me know
