Only one half of my LED brake light (the long led strip on the trunk) works. How do I fix this?

    Those lights usually failed in thirds. There is a way to cut the back of the light open and re-solder the connections between the LED segments bit it could be tricky for a do-it-yourselfer. Your best bet may be to just replace the light assembly.

    That is very funny, better to replace? New, that strip cost 750.00, used if you can find it, is 150.00 We just bought that strip, only to find out it wasn't the light strip itself, it was the balister. Better off taking the strip out and use as a reflector. If none work, no one notices. If only a few work, it is noticeable. We live in Virginia, have to have state inspection each year, and they want all or none of those lights to work in order to pass? Goodbye worthless lights! By the way, if anyone needs that strip, we have one for sale. Just reply here.
