2015 Chrysler 200 Trunk Light
Pry Out Light Housing
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation 2015, 2016 and 2017 Chrysler 200 sedan in changing a burnt out cargo area light bulb in the trunk.

Owners of other Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM or Fiat vehicles such as the 300, Pacifica, Town & Country, Avenger, Charger, Challenger, Journey, Dart, Durango, Magnum, Grand Caravan, Fiat 500, Fiat 124 Spider, Grand Cherokee, Renegade, Wrangler, Compass, Liberty, Patriot, ProMaster, 1500 and C/V Tradesman minivan may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A compatible replacement miniature wedge base light bulb is part number 2825 (also known as W5W) or an LED unit.

The only tool needed to access and replace the light bulb is a small flathead screwdriver or a plastic pry bar tool.

Light Housing Removed
Disconnect Power Plug
The first two steps are to open the trunk lid and then locate the cargo area light bulb housing.

Use a small flathead screwdriver or a plastic pry bar tool to gently pull the light housing out of the roof of the trunk.

Press the release tab on the electrical connector before sliding the power plug straight out of its socket.

Burn Mark - Plastic Cover
Squeeze Together Sides
Squeeze together the two sides of the white plastic cover to release the retaining clips.

You might notice a black or brown burn mark on the white plastic cover from the hot incandescent light bulb.

Swing Open White Cover
Light Bulb Exposed
Swing open the white plastic cover to reveal the old light bulb and the socket.


Pull Out Old Light Bulb
Push In New Light Bulb
If the old light bulb was recently turned on, be careful when you remove it. The bulb might still be hot enough to burn your fingers.

Push a new number 2825 miniature wedge base bulb in to the socket.

You can also use a brighter LED bulb.

Snap Closed Plastic Cover
Push In Power Plug
Swing the white plastic cover closed and gently pop it back in to place.

Push the power plug straight in to the socket on the end of the light housing.

Re-Insert Light Housing
Test New Trunk Light Bulb
Re-insert the wires in to the opening in the roof of the trunk.

Then gently snap in the retaining clip on the other side of the light housing.

If the new light bulb didn't turn on immediately when you plugged in the electrical connector, test it by turning on the headlights or press the "Unlock" button on the key fob to activate the interior lights.
