Question about 2006 Mercury Montego

1 Answer

Brake light is out (led assembly). They say I have to replace the entire tail light ($360.00) That's absurd to have have to pay that when a brake light goes out. Any other options ? Thanx Rick

98 Chevy Tahoe, drivers side rear tail light assembly wont work, brake / turn signal. Replaced entire assembly, it worked for about 3 days then stopped working again. I need to get this fixed before I get...


I've got the same problem on 98 GMC Sierra.

I'm an electrical engineer, I checked the electrical diagrams and verified that there is no problem in the rear lamp assembly or wiring. With the light assembly unplugged, I can actually watch the blinker and brake signals operate with a voltmeter. The Tail light works OK.

It simply won't provide enough current to light the bulbs.

I'm afraid that it's melted one of a pair of normally closed contacts inside the blinker switch that feed the brake and turn separately on each side.

It is the LED componet in the taillight, not the bulbs that are replaceable. I had the same problem and only solution is to replace the entire assembly.

2004 brake light out (red section) how do I


Not familiar with this model, however see if there are bolts or screws on the side of the tail lamp assembly when you open the tail gate.  Once you remove screws, entire taillamp assembly will come out, and you can then get to back side of tail light to replace bulbs.  This is normal bulb replacement for other pickups like toyota, ford.  Hope this helps!!

Removing rear light assembly on honda odyssey 2006


Yes, there is a "spear point" plastic clip that is still engaged into a socket type holder in the front outboard portion of the tail lamp assembly. Pry gently with a tape wrapped screwdriver at the front outboard corner of the assembly and the clip will release. You will then be able to see how the clip works and will be able to align and engage it first when replacing the tail lamp assembly.

Right brake light out 2004 Prius


Th other post is incorrect, the 2004 has LED brake lights that are part of the tail light assembly. you have to replace the whole assy. There are two screws that hold the assy in, they are both covered by white cable clips. The clips just pull off and then you can use a 10mm wrench to remove the nuts on the screws. My brake light stopped working and during the removal, the LEDs started working again, hopefully you will find the same situation as the LEDs are supposed to last for years.

Replacement LED Tail Light assembly - Check light Brake and tail light failures


I have never heard of this particular problem however my experience has taught me that generally with led's you have to make sure you have a good clean ground. led's draw more amprage in the circuit and if the ground is weak it will back feed this is what is most likely setting off the fault light. a quick fix is to just add a ground to the harness. hard wire a white 12 gauge wire to the main harness on both sides and then you can connect the wire to the metal of the trunk with self tapping metal screws. this will give you a good clean ground. this will do the trick....
