Hi! On replacing the bulb please do this... You will need a flat blade screw on the right side of the bulb housing then gently push to the left. This will release the catch holding it and the wire will drop. You will need a 1/4 turn to loosen the bulb then replace it with the new one. Then you can put it back again and remember to put the left side of the bulb housing first then to the right till you hear it click. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Reach up and behind the light socket, Turn and remove the socket. Then push in and turn the bulb counter-clockwise and it will pop out for removal. Other types have screws to remove the bulb lens but I don't believe yours has this, I do believe you will have to go behind the lens. Usually under the bumper or behind the liner of the trunk.

    Open up the trunk lid. Look behind the trunk lid and see if you can see the light sockets there. You should be able to turn them counter-clockwise and remove them.
    Otherwise there would be screws on the lens to remove to gain access to the bulb.

SOURCE: how to replace license plate bulbs on 2005 cadilac

To change the bulbs all you have to do is put a flat blade screw driver on the right side of the bulb housing and gently push to the left (towards the driver's side). This will release the catch holding it in and it will drop out and down on the end of its wiring connector. Twist the bulb counter clockwise to release it. Replace the bulb and just put the housing back into the opening left side first, then just push up on the right side till you hear a click.

Where is the backup light sensor for 2003 cadilac deville


Hello: If you mean what turns the back-up lights on, the lights are controlled by the park neutral switch which is mounted on top of the transmission on the drivers side of the car. If you haven't checked the bulbs you need to do that first. Remove the rear license plate, then remove the screws that hold the molding behind the license plate then you can access the bulbs for the back up lights. If bulbs are good check the Park/Reverse fuse in the rear fuse block, if fuse is good check the reverse relay in the rear fuse block. The rear fuse block is on Left side under the rear bottom seat cushion.

License plate light 2003 Deville


You have to pry underneath the outer left plastic edge of the light with a small precision flat screwdriver to hit the tab thing on the left inside and push towards the right, then pull light housing outwards. You can see the tab through the clear lens. if you have a license plate frame, you will need to remove that first.
