Sounds like a short in the wiring... find an electrical diagram out of a repair manual and check to make sure all connections are snug.

1999 honda accord coupe ex Trunk light doesn't work

If you have 12V at the WHT/BLU connection to the trunk light, operating the trunk latch causes a switch to close and connect the other lead to ground. If you jump the ORG lead directly to ground, the trunk light should come on and verify the latch switch is defective. It also is possible the trunk light socket is defective

Need an instruction how to replace a tail light cover. thanks.

i will tell you how to replace it

  1. Set the Sonata's headlamp switch to "OFF," engage the emergency break and remove the keys from the ignition.
  2. Use the trunk release latch to open the trunk, and then step out of the car.
  3. Find the taillight assembly cover in the back of the trunk. Twist the knob counterclockwise to open it and reveal the inside of the assembly and bulb sockets.
  4. Locate the bulb socket holding the broken bulb. Turn it counterclockwise to detach it from the taillight assembly.
  5. Pull the old bulb straight out of the socket and replace it with the new bulb. Toss the old bulb into the garbage so it doesn't become a hazard.
  6. Push the bulb socket into the taillight assembly and turn it clockwise to secure it.
  7. Test the new signal light to make sure it works before closing the assembly cover and shutting the trunk.
hope that it will be help full

Where is the location of the trunk light fuse?

The bulb itself is a fuse. When it goes out it needs to be replaced. The switch that activates the light is built into the socket. It works with a bulb filled with mercury that makes contact when the trunk is opened. If the bulb is good and power is tested good up to the light socket the socket will need to be replaced

My Brake lights don't work

2004 Rx8 kept blowing 15amp brake light fuse. Solution: wire going to rear lights was worn and frayed where it feeds through the left trunk lip on left side of trunk. This can be seen when you open the trunk lid. The wire routes by the trunk lid hinge. If the support connectors come loose, the wires are crunched by the hinge or lid. Re-splice, insulate, zip-tie, replace fuse and replace any blown bulbs.
