Video Description

The center brake light, sometimes referred to as the third brake light or stoplight, on your 2008 Hyundai Sonata lights up when you hit the brake pedal and helps prevent you from being rear ended by the cars behind you. See how to change the center brake light (CBL) on your Hyundai Sonata in the video above. Be careful not to touch the bulb directly with your fingers when you replace the center brake light bulb on your Sonata, touching the bulb causes the it to burn out quicker.

A burnt out center brake light bulb in your Sonata is an excuse for a police officer to pull you over. Check your bulbs frequently and change burnt bulbs promptly.
