Brake lights out, fuse okay. Ideas?


Asked by Apr 14, 2014 at 06:30 PM about the 2001 Volkswagen GTI

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Had the same problem a few months ago, found one bulb was burned out but other was
okay, just not lit.  Replaced the one and jiggled the other, okay until now.  Will go by a
parts place and have the bulbs checked tomorrow, but in the mean time, any ideas?

1 Answer


My friendly man at Auto Parts store checked the bulbs, they were burned out. Why? Who knows. That was the problem, now it is fixed. When it doubt ask!
