Question tail light / brake light ??

Quick question, don't have the service manual handy...

The right rear tail light works, but the right rear brake light does not!

Is that actually two separate bulbs, or do I have a loose brake switch wire somewhere back there?

Does the center brake light and the brake light on the other side work? If so, most likely a bad bulb, pick up a pack and replace both of them.

Agreed with above -- sounds like you've lost one of the filaments in that dual-filament bulb.

Bulb is a 3157.

Good time to go with 3157 LED bulbs.
