how do you turn them on? :confused: or is that mod?

(got this picture from GL CT200 's gallery :D)
Are you thinking something other than when the headlights are on ..the tailights are also on ? Just trying to understand what you are going for.

I have never seen light come out from both left and right side inner tail lights (pointed out by 2 arrows in the picture). When I turn on headlights or pressing break, only the outer left and right tail lights and the light on the tail wing would light up.

Rear Reflector

Those are only reflectors and don't have lights in them, SORRY :mad:

You can see more info about it here:
(sorry picture wouldn't show; Matt_RN was talking about relfector between rear left/right turn/brake/night lights)
two pictures from Sewell: the center red is reflectors, only lights in the trunk hatch are back-up and license plate

Rear light Sewell

I don't think he was referring to the reflectors, midcow3. It looks like the reflectors you mentioned are on the lower part of the CT's body.

A portion of my taillights kick on when I put the car into reverse. I also swapped out my reverse lights to LEDs.



Left is LED, right is standard lamp.

Hi. The only lamp in the hatch door is for back-up lamp. The red piece underneath are only reflectors that show up at night from car headlights behind you.

Here's the exploded view of the assembly.

Matt_RN,

I might have pulled wrong Sewell picture; added both in EDIT. I was talking about the reflector between the left/right turn/brake/night rear lights. The only lights in the rear hatch are back-up ( shown in your picture) and license lights -sorry for any confusion.

thanks midcow, Matt and 11LFCH

So I guess this is just a mod then, but I have to say that it looks so much nicer if the inner reflectors can actually light up.

Japanese mod kit

I have never seen light come out from both left and right side inner tail lights (pointed out by 2 arrows in the picture). When I turn on headlights or pressing break, only the outer left and right tail lights and the light on the tail wing would light up.
There's also Japanese aftermarket mod kit that does that.

I have the same problem. My two inside tailights (right below the back wiper) does NOT light up whether I have my headlights on or not. AND they're not on when I brake. Is it suppose to turn on or just for decoration?

Thanks
