Brake light issues.

Sorry if this is real easy, but here it goes. I can't figure it out. Brake light goes out when the lights are on and brakes are applied. 05 Liberty. Checked tailight assembely. I found a blown light and a burnt out socket. I replaced both with no avail. Any help.

This sounds like as bad ground.Double check your wiring and make sure you have a good ground.

Figured it out. Got out the ol' DVOM and started touching connectors. Everything was fine. Hmmm... Noticed one of the contacts where the socket contact touches was a bit recessed. Raised it up. Nothing. Scraped it for a better contact. Fixed
