Crazy Brake Light Problem
Need some help, please! My right brake light stopped working but its not the bulb. My reverse light on the same side works but only if the lights are off and its half the brightness of the left (drivers side). I doubt its related but both turn signals flash quickly, flash very slowly, sometimes dont flash at all, and sometimes work fine. Oh, this might not be relevant but twice when I drove it last the same side tire seemed to lock up for a second when I hit the brake but it could have been slightly wet road and Interco LTBs. Ideas? I cant spend the money and take this in. Thanks.
Just sounds like a bad ground to me. Make sure the bulb and light sockets are clean where they touch. Clean up any corrosion you see on mating surfaces with some medium grit sandpaper. If that doesn't take care of the problem, get yourself a piece of wire and hold one end on the bulb socket and the other end on some bare body or frame steel (not rusty) while the blinker is supposed to be working. If it works then, you have a bad ground and will have to hook up a new one. Don't worry, you can't get electrocuted.
