so my friend is freaking out. he changed a bulb in his rear spoiler in his 07 mazda 3. Suddenly, when he steps on his brakes, both the left and right lights dont work, and he can not get out of park when he tried to drive home. Anyone know what could be the problem? Im guessing it could be a fuse or what? I know its not the mazda forum but alot of you guys know the deal with cars so I just want your input. Thanks!

I have to ask, was it an LED or a standard bulb?

I am thinking a fuse but idk, it sounds a little wired.

Has your friend tried to swap back the old bulb to see if it works?

is it the exact same bulb number or do they just look like the same bulb?

Pressing on the brake pedal is what releases the lock on the shifter. I always thought cars had brake lights and shifter lock separated. Guess both were combined in the Mazda which kind of makes sense. No brakes lights=unsafe to drive so shifter column does not unlock.
