comment Third brake light (LED) test
@HelenL - there is actually a good video for my series of Civic (2008) here. youtube.com/watch?v=SLS3CQykji8&noredirect=1. It always seems to be the solder points and a waste to spend that much money on something that just has a bad connection.

I found that it was in the light housing itself. The solder on some of the terminals was loose to the contact. I found that after removing the light and plugging it into the socket, if I touched a few points (with my son holding the break pedal down) the light would work. I basically heated that contact with a soldering iron and it was fine after that.

If it was seperate, would it have an independent fuse?

Although the book would be a great ref. At that cost, I might as wellgo to the dealership and have them change it. What gets me is that it works on the first start up of the day after sitting over night, but the stops working.

Normal tail lights work as they should, just this led bar is having the issue
