How do I replace the light bulb in my third brake light?
You can't. Electronic third brake lights do not use light bulbs. They use circuit boards and LEDs.
There is no such thing as a quick fix on any electronic third brake light. Most lamps will have multiple internal problems. Some lamps will require circuit board replacement.
Most rare circuit boards can be restored. We restore the original circuit boards and do not use cheap, low quality imported circuit boards as replacements.
Depending on the vehicle make and model, different circuit boards and different types of LEDs are used.
Your lamp may be using a 5mm style LED or surface mount SMD or Superflux LED.
What about used third brake lights or lamps for sale on eBay?
Really? Don't buy someone else's problem. This cracked and rusty Cadillac CTS third brake light was listed on eBay for over $300.
Fixing the internal electronics correctly is only half the problem. Resealing the lamp is the other. Silicone, epoxies, and other over-the-counter sealers are simply not tough or strong enough for third brake light repairs. We use only OE quality plastic bonding materials.

I received my brake light on Friday and installed it this weekend without any problems! You packed the light so it would not be damaged, your directions for removal/installation were easy to follow and complete. I am sending you back my light today, so you should have it back by the end of the week. I will make sure that I let fellow Seville owners know about your top notch service!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Joe
By Email:"I just want to say thank you. A couple of days ago I called thinking I needed a third brake light for my vehicle. I had checked the fuse tip you gave me and it checked good. I was ready to order the light but you asked some additional questions. I went back and found that a wire had been damaged going from the light to the vehicle. It was repaired and the light was in good shape. I wanted to send this email because a lot of companies today would have only wanted to sell a light and not worry about the end result."

Logan Diagnostic's philosophy is to help you save money, while providing professional repairs on hi-tech vehicle electronics on GM cars built since 1981. Logan Diagnostic excels at providing quality repairs. Most repairs on third brake lights are completed within 1 business day. Currently, a major customer demand for Logan Diagnostic has been for repair service on electronic LED third brake lights. The problem with these brake lights is that it is common to have LEDs burn out, or have whole sections quit working. Also, the lights are designed as a non-serviceable sealed unit and not repairable, just replaceable. Unfortunately, replacement third brake lights are extremely expensive, and used lights in good working order are difficult to find.
Logan Diagnostic has developed a professional repair/rebuild procedure to fix these third brake lights at a fraction of the cost of a new lamp . We offer technical support on removing your third brake light (this procedure is very easy). We also offer quick and efficient turnaround on your repair (1 to 2 business days) and you have several options on repair or replacement of the third brake lights.
We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express credit cards. Bank debit cards and Paypal also accepted.
