I can't say for sure about your model, but on many cars you can get at the lamp socket from the trunk. It's probably the kind you twist a quarter turn counterclockwise to pull out of the enclosure, but look at it to make sure there aren't retaining screws to remove first.

If you live with practical jokers or absent-minded types, put a long 2x4 in the trunk to keep it from being closed while you crawl inside to work on the light.

Tried getting ford f150 4.2 2003 inspected. Replaced air filter and fuel filter already. Check engine lit was on before replacing them . Now check engine light is out . But won't pass inspection.


As for your codes p1131 and 1151: Ford - Lack Of Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 1 Sensor 1 Switches - Sensor Indicates Lean


Last week I had the very same catalyst, evap and ECG codes come up on my 1999 Mercury Mystique which is like a Ford Taurus. A friend was able to find a hole or leak in the hose connected, replaced it and it runs fine. I havent run it a full and straight 50 miles yet to clear the check engine light but that repair alone changed the entire way the car was poorly driving. Im sure that hasnt fixed all the probs but thats a good starting point.

c. Tilt both seat backs downward
2. Remove the left & right hand shoulder cushions (12 mm bolt at the bottom of each cushion)
a. Remove seat belt from shoulder cushion guide at the top of the cushion

c. Set shoulder cushions aside w/two 12mm bolts

Engine light on


Have you checked the spark plugs since the light came on? you say that you belive they caused the light to come on? If this is true, are you sure that you spaced them properly? Proper spacing is crucial to making sure they fire correctly and every time. Also, are the correct wires put back in the correct firing order? If all this has been done correctly, take a look at the spark plugs. Do they still look new? Are they covered with oil or early signs of excessive corrosion? Appearences by any of these could point to problems with gaskets. Hope this helps.

94 BMW 325i My Brake lights don't work. ALL the other lights work. I checked the fuse. its ok. I do have water leak inside from Convertible top when it rains.


Hmmm check the brake light switch at the brake pedal.

Water leak huh? check the wiring in that area for the lights, and have the sockets checked out.

No voltage to the socket when brak applied? tracr wires back till you find the break or short thats not allowing the power to flow to the bulbs

U-joints NYS Inspection


Yes it matters to the inspector, if it's standers part or after market part that was added and not functioning. They can fail it, I had Off road light's on my truck and one did not work but it was illegal to use them on the road i still failed my inspection till i replaced the bulb.
I ended removing the light, didn't feel like driving off to replace the bulb and come back to get it inspected again.
Good luck and hope this helps, guess it depends on how strick the inspector is.
