Thanks I didn't know that, I'll check again Both lights in Trunk lid are out. Buttons are really in tight, is there a tool to remove them? Okay I used pliers and all bulbs are good. Probably a broken wire

in the bundle car to trunk lid. Color code is blue black and green yellow to other light. I had this happen on a MBZ once. I got to get a service manual. Back-up lights work and running lights work but not brake lights.
