Question about 1990 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Break lights.... I replaced the left side tail light with the correct bulb per dealership, but the break light still doesn't work. Can you send me a wiring diagram of the break lights? The fuses all look good and I checked them with the voltage meter. there are two wires one red and one orange, one of them is out of the socket. Could this be the cause? It's right by the door behind a kick panel...PLEASE HELP!! I'm tired of the tickets.

SOUNDS LIKE U DON'T DO THIS WORK OFTEN, WELL THE EASIEST SOLUTION IS TO REPALCE THE WHOLE SOCKET IF POSSIBLE. EVEN THOUGH THE BRAKE LIGHT AND PARK LIGHT IS LOCATED IN THE SAME UNIT, IT STILL FUNCTION AS TWO SEPARATE CIRCUITS. IF THE WIRE IS OUT YES THATS MOST LIKELY THE PROBLEM IN THAT CASE RECONNECT IF POSSIBLE, IF NOT REPLACE THE BROKEN PARTS. MAKE SURE THE GROUND CONNECTION IS CORRECT.

Hell i just bought a chevy cavlier and my back break light is out...the light its self is on...its just the break light when pressed...


you don`t say if its both or just one brake light out.you say the light itself is on but not if you mean tail light or what.the tail lights use a different filament in the bulb than the signal light which is the same filament that the brake light uses.if the signal light work on the rear then the bulbs are good,if just one side works then the bulb is no good on the side that doesn`t work.if the signal lights work but neither brake light works then you need to check the fuses in the fuse panel under the dash on the drivers side.if the fuses are good then it will be either a bad wire at the brake switch or a bad brake light switch,this is located on the brake pedal lever under the dash.

Tail break lights don't work. Window break light does work however. Bulbs have been replaced.


Check the brake light fuse. The high mounted brake light (third brake light) is on a different circuit than the brake lights. Hope this helps.

Rear tail / brake lights


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Almost always, your described concern indicates a loose ground particularly on the driver side. What is required is to check the connectors leading to the driver rear side and/or a ground wire. Often, the problem would be the ground terminal is loose or corroded leading to the body of the vehicle. A temporary workaround is to determine which is the ground in the bulb socket (always the body) and wire a jumper wire to any exposed metal part of the rear end.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Rear tail / brake lights


I had the same problem. Check the fuse to the brake light switch (I'm pretty sure that's what it's called). Chances are, that's blown and causing the lack of taillights. As for the single light going out, me and my dad just fiddled with the electrical contacts on the bulb housing until we got it to work. Basically just bent them up a little bit so we were sure that when the bulb was installed, it definitly made contact with the metal tabs. Sorry I can't be more specific.

How replace break light bulb in on a4 2005


Replacement of any bulb in the Tail-light assembly is easier then one thinks.

First thing you need to do is gain access to the trunk area. At the top of
the tail-light area inside the trunk is a small circle that needs to be
opened to expose the bolt that you need to remove.

WARNING: Be careful not to loose this bolt or you are going to have to take
apart your trunk interior to retrieve it.

After the bolt is removed the Tail-light assembly will pull out as follows;
Left side: pull out the right side of the assembly
Right side: pull out the left side of the assembly.
The out side of the assembly is held in place by 2 or 3 small nipples.

There will only be one cable that is connected to the assembly. This does not
have to be removed unless you really want to. On both sides of the assembly
there are 2 clips that hold the light plate to the break light lens. After
the clips are loosened the whole light bulb assembly can be removed and the
bulbs replaced.


Restoring the Break-light assembly.

After you have replaced your bulbs and re attached the the bulb assembly, you
will have to first fit the nipples on the outer side of the assembly then
push the inter side into place. Replace the bolt and tighten. You are done.
