Unhappy Driver and passanger brake lights dont work.

My brake lights started giving me trouble. At first it was the tail light not working, then both not working then it became the brake lights not working. I have had everything checked. The tail lights work fine. and so does the middle light. A friend noticed a small little nodule or something broken off inside the passenger side socket. I am not sure if its actually that or the brake light switch or what. I really need help. Also if it is the tail light socket where can I order one of these? I have searched and searched. I also need to know how to replace them.

It was first on the driver side. I noticed it has been all different kinds of combinations.

Thank you

Default Re: Driver and passanger brake lights dont work.

I don't know if you've already taken care of this, but in my case, the driver side brake light stopped working. The tail light assembly had begun to collect water in it, and it ended up corroding the contacts in the bulb socket base. The bulb socket actually disconnects from the wire going to the lamp assembly. In my case, I bought an entire tail light assembly from Amazon for about $32, which included new bulbs and sockets. That took care of the problem. I don't know if you have the same issue, but if you are able to disconnect the socket, the pins in the connector should feel solid. If they wiggle around, there could be a disconnect right in the socket base.
