You'llhave to raise the rear compartment door fully. Next locat the tailight you wish to replace or same if you are replacing one of the tailigt bulbs. This would include the stop bulb or turn signals etc.
Next there is a black plastice side panel located between the lamp assembly (the entire plastic housing) and the inner portion of the rear compartment door. There you'll see two phillips head screws which you must remove. This releases the entire assembly.
You then next gently give it a small tug toward the left (if a left side assembly) or to the right if other wise. What happens there is that there is a stud that's held pretty snuggly by a modled ring in the body assembly. Don't twist the lamp assembly up or down unless you want to break this off but give it a slight pull outward. Then you're done. The entire assembly will be released and you'll be home free for changing any of the bulbs or even replacing the entire assembly. W/o breaking it of course.

License plate lights not working wiring


Are you measuring 4 volts with the ground on your tester attached to what?The door?The vehicle body?Check the ground on the door/wiring also and the follow the positive wiring back, if you still have to, until you get proper voltage.
OR,grab some power from a tail light and feed the licence plates lights with that,if your ground is good on the door.

Installation instructions 2005 hyundai santa fe tail light


Hi

Open rear hatch,
locate 3 philips screws on the right side of lamp,
note that the lamp assembly is held into the fender side by a plastic tab( hidden ). You have to stand at the rear fender side, facing the lamp and pull the lamp toward you carefully.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Auto has 23K and cruse stopped working. checked


I had the same problem with my 2003 santa fe. Do you have any brake lights out in back? Weird as it is, as soon as I fixed a burned out brake bulb, my cruise worked again. The only relation I can think of is that tapping the breaks causes cruise to turn off - so maybe a broken brake/tail light passes a singal to cruise control from some reason???

Dashboard Lights, 2003 Hyundai Sante Fe, NOT WORKING


Had same problem. 2002 Santa Fe. It is the fuse that says Tail Light (rt). They are connected, as well as with the visor light. My visor broke a while back, so I took it out, leaving the wires to dangle. Apparently, the wires were touching up top and shorting out. I took out the connector up there and now no problems.
