DIY - Troubleshooting Rear Back Up Lights Not Working 2005 Toyota Corolla

This DIY is for ANY 9nth Generation Corolla 

When you have checked the bulbs and the wires in the elbow of the trunk .

I don't know why mine was missing a piece but as I did for the trunk light I traced my rear back up light wire to this opened end box . 

You have to pull down the driver side carpet to find this junction of wires .

As you can see the 3 wires are connected to get the both back up lights to work . 

The bottom 2 wires are for the trunk light which I do have another DIY on it . 

These are many angles of how it should look - I don't know what was missing but if I go to a junk yard I will look for this piece .

Match the struts up and then replace them the same way you took off the other strut .

DIY - Driver side Window Switch Replacement 2002 Honda CRV

This is a DIY for a 2002 Honda CRV driver side window switch .

Before you determine if you need the main switch you must have a good diagnosis .

Some times it can be the motor if it is let the motor die before you replace any window motor .

If the window goes up and with the other switch but not the drivers switch then that is one outcome . 

They call this the main switch because if this fails the other windows won't work correctly from this area . 

You need to pull up the switch from the snaps . You do not need to take the door panel off .

Unscrew the screws located on the bottom . 

Once you have it off match up the switch and then put it all back . 

Windows should be working again .
