The back lights do not turn on.
Hello! That is unfortunately a common issue that several owners of your particular vehicle have faced. The light malfunction is commonly caused by a faulty brake pedal switch. The brake pedal switch is fitted right by the brake pedal, and should activate the lights when the pedal is pressed. Over time, the contact point on the switch will wear-out and become unable to send the signal to the taillights. The malfunction could also be due to a short in the wiring harness that is integrated into the taillight circuit; the harness should be located on the driver's side, under the dashboard. I suggest having a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your car's location to run a diagnostic on the cause of your taillight malfunction, and recommend the best path to repair.
