Most likely the backup light switch is defective, it is located on the transmission where the shift cable connects. Here is a picture and part number and price.

if only one side of brake light is out it's probally the bulb, these are easly changed , by first going to auto parts store and getting new bulb , then using phillips head screwdriver remove four screws that are around permiter of tailight that is out , carefull dont loose these screws you'll need to put them back , gently rock tailight back and forth to break gasket seal and pull light straight out of truck it comes out about 10 inches , this modle has if i remember right three bulbs in taillight it's the center one if i remember right grap the white plastic bulb holder firmly and turn 1/4 turn counterclockwise the bulb holder should come free of tail light , grab bulb with one hand and holder with other and wiggle gently sideto side till bulb pops free of holder , use a clean towel or cloth to hold new bulb and insert it back same direction as previous bulb, wipe all smuges and fingerprints off bulb (this would cause hot spot on bulb and make it fail early) reinsert holder into tail light , I use car wax as gasket renewer on tail light border before i put it back in, but thats optional reinstall all four screws back in , there you are done !!

All fuses are good - brake lights, rear running lights work fine. but the reverse lights won't come on when put into reverse. Any idea what might be going on? As far as I know the bulbs are still good...

You will need to either replace or adjust your backup switch, it is located on the transmission next to the shifter. Hope this helps, thank you for using FixYa!

How do i change the rear brake light in a toyota corolla 2003

  • Pop the trunk.
  • Look at the backside of the tail light area – it’s wide open. Turn the affected light bulb socket to the left. It’ll take some force, but you won’t break it.
  • Once it unlocks, you can pull the light bulb out.
  • Push the new bulb in.
  • Put the socket back into its place by pushing it in, then turning to the right. It’ll lock back into place.
  • Test the brake light to make sure it works.

    Changing headlight bulbs, low beam, need procedure

    You will have to raise the hood and get to the back side of the light assembly. There will be a plastic cap or rubber dust cover that the wires go thru to the light. If it is a cap, turn it a 1/4 turn counterclockwise and pull it back out of the way. The bulb socket should come out of the light now. Unclip the old bulb. DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS PART OF THE NEW BULB. Skin oils can cause bulb to blow. Plug the new bulb in. Put it back in the lamp assembly and replace the cap. IF it is the dust cap, pull it out of the way, may have to wiggle it. If there is a clip that looks like a bent paperclip holding the bulb in with a screw at each end, the clip should squeeze and release the bulb. Put new one in and reassemble.

    How do you remove headlight bulb on mercedes 1997 sl? Have already opened the plastic cover, unplugged electrical wires, unscrewed collar. How does the bulb come out?

    all you have to do is pull at this point. sometimes they get a little "stuck" in there so move up and down until the bulb comes loose. be sure not to touch the new bulb with bare fingers. if you can, get latex gloves to do this. simply install the new one reversing all the steps you already told me. cheers
