Q: How do I fix my brake light? on 2004 Acura TSX

My left brake light doesn't light up when I press the brake, but the bulb lights up when I lock/unlock my car with my remote. Would that still indicate a bad bulb?

The light that flashes with the remote is a tail light, you have a bad bulb most likely Remove the bulb/bulb holder inside the trunk and replace the stop/tail bulb. Look on youtube for bulb replacement might be a video.
For clarification, the same bulb lights up when I press my lock/unlock button on the remote, but fails to light up when the brake pedal is pushed. Would this still indicate a bad bulb?
