Your brake lights come on when you press the brake pedal, helping to protect you from being rear-ended by other cars on the road. Over time, brake light bulbs may become dim or burn out altogether. It’s best to replace these bulbs when they start going dim as this will increase safety while decreasing future replacement needs.

Your third brake light is an advanced safety feature that provides drivers behind you with one more alert of when to stop, helping them avoid being rearended. This type of light is now mandatory on all modern vehicles as part of a comprehensive safety protocol.

A malfunctioning third brake light can lead to an accident or ticket, so it’s essential that you keep it in proper working condition. Fortunately, replacements are easy to come by from O’Reilly Auto Parts.

To begin, first you’ll need to remove the housing that holds the third brake light in place. This housing is bolted onto the back of the trunk lid with one bolt that needs loosening. After taking out the brake light, it becomes much easier to take apart other parts of the unit and determine what needs replacing.

Once you’ve taken the brake light and other parts out of the housing, you should be left with two pieces of red plastic that are glued together. Carefully separate these pieces while being mindful not to damage any wiring.

Next, cut the wires from the red plastic and insert them into the holes on the back of a high mount stop light. Be gentle when soldering as these wires could potentially touch or blow a fuse. After installation is complete, put back the housing and test it out!
