Einleitung

If you become aware that the brake light of your 2014 Kia Soul does not work or you failed the inspections because of the brake light, this guide will help you to replace it in 8 easy steps.

When the brake light does not turn on, something is wrong with the light bulb, electric system, or socket. A burnt out bulb is one of the most common brake light problems.

Before replacing the light bulb make sure you clean the out the socket with something like a used toothbrush for example. Brush out any dust or rust that could prevent a good connection between the light bulb and the socket.

If, after placing the new light bulb it still does not turn on, the problem could be more serious and may involve the electrical system. In that case you might need to see a mechanic.

Step 3 should be done in a warm temperature. If it is cold, do it in a warm garage that will prevent you from breaking the plastic lens cover.

Make sure you turn the engine off and put the emergency break on prior to beginning the guide.
