Allways Showing a Brake Light Out

That thing in the console is allways showing that there is a brake light out when there is not. It all started when there was a burnt bulb on the light in the liftgate. All the lights in the liftgate work.

Look in the top, third brake light. There a multiple bulbs, so it will light up when just one bulb is out but it will look fine.

I wonder were that dirt road goes?

The thing is, all the bulbs in the third light are good.

Are you sure it says "brake light"? There are these little lights on the side, above the rear brake lights that burn out a lot and you don't notice them until you really look. They are more on the side than the back. Go see...

I agree 100% with the skeptics here..... be sure, really sure, all the bulbs are 100% working... and then doubt your test results anyway !!

I had this problem on my GC too. At first it was the tailight, but then it never went away.

Found out that the wiring was bad for one of the taillights. Whenever I'd hit a bump it might jiggle the wire into working again, and then move again and go out a few minutes later.

As far as I know, I'm the only person to own a flame red liberty with the light bar, and until someone disproves that to me, I'm going to enjoy it.
