About The RAV4 Rear Lights

Situated at the back of the RAV4s bodywork are the rear lights, consisting of a plastic cover and lights cluster underneath.

They are mostly used to inform other road users of your intentions, taking care of the brake lights, reverse lights and turn signals.

You can purchase the whole tail-lights assembly as one unit to make the replacement as easy as possible.

RAV4 Rear Lights Not Working

Most of the time if you find the rear lights in your Toyota RAV4 not working then it will come down to a burnt-out bulb.

Over time the bulbs can fail much like the bulbs that you have inside your house.

Another cause could be a lost connection – which could be fixed as simply as with a gentle whack to the rear lights cover.

Shocks from bumps in the road can knock the bulbs out of their holders, this isn’t usually a problem with LED lights on modern RAV4s though.

Rear Lights Replacement Cost

You can get the whole backlights unit complete with cover and the bulbs/LEDs inside for as little as $70~ new and half that price second-hand.

Replacing this unit requires you to enter it from behind through the boot of the car, a panel pops off that gives you access.

After removing the old lights you simply unplug the old unit and plug the new one in and secure it properly to the car – as seen in the YouTube video from 1A Auto.

Paying a dealership or garage to do this for you can cost around $50 as it’s fairly simple and requires no specialist tools or skills.

You can also replace just the bulbs as well which is even easier, again, you can access these through the boot of your RAV4.

RAV4 Tail Lights Not Working

If you have found that the taillights in your RAV4 have stopped working then the first thing to check is the fuses.

A blown-out fuse can be obvious as the element that connects the two clips at the bottom of the fuse will have burnt away (as shown below).

Replacing that fuse should lead to the rear lights coming back on, otherwise, you will have to inspect the bulbs themselves.

As mentioned in the previous section, you can access the rear lights through the boot of the RAV4 by popping off a panel on each side of the car.

Once inside you can then check the individual bulbs or replace the entire rear light unit with a new or second-hand one.
