Actually I just replaced mine, your solution was very helpful but you don't have to remove the plastic screw behind the light (it just holds the trunk upholstery to the frame.) What confused me was which way to pull (I was afraid I'd brake something). When I got it off I saw that strait back is the 'preferred way' but the two clasps on the right that help hold it on place have plastic caps on them to keep them from being bent while removing the taillight portion. The rest was strait forward.

Open the trunk and take the two screws out near the trunk seal as well as the turn thingy in the trunk behind the light. Then you have to pull the entire tail light assembly off. After you do that just twist out the bulb.

I have a 2001 Kia Sportage and replaced the brake light switch. I have no brake lights when you mash the brake pedal but the tail lights work otherwise when put in park. What am I overlooking?

If the third brake light is working and just the two mains are not then it may be the turn signal switch that is the culprit here, the brake light circuits go through the switch.

So, my tail light on nissan maxima 2004 were out, the fuse was blown so I replaced it. Tail light work but dashboard lights are out when lights are on, in all positions,switch them off and dashboard lights...

dashboard lights are brighter when lights are off so you can see stuff in the daylight-check and make sure you have the correct bulb and its plugged in correctly-something is confusing the cpu-a blown fuse usually means something is shorted out-check for cut or bare wires around your tailamps-cheers Denny

Tail light stays on when car is off

you may need to replace the light control module located at the left of the steering column.. this is a common problem. Also some remote starters have this problem the relay stays on. if your vehicle has one in it you can test it by unplugging the unit, should turn off these lights.

2000 Saturn sl2 tail lights

If the 2000 Saturn SL2 is the same as the '99 SL2, then your tail lights bulb is the same bulb as your break light bulb. Now they are dual bulbs, just like your head lights. So just the same way that your brights can work, but your headlight lamp be out, or vice versa, is the same with your break lights. So replace both bulbs and you should be good to go. I just had to replace both mine, one was a tail light out, and the other's break light was out, either way, same bulb. Also, check your manual for the light, or take the light out when you go in to get new ones. I found that for some reason there is some confusion on the bulb in this make in model.
