As long as 1 is out and not both, if both then check your brake switch. If not then there are internal contacts in the light fixture. You'd either have to repair it or replace it!

It is only one that is out. The tail light, when I brake the light comes on.

Ok..put a light tester to that wire to see if comes on..color will be same other side. If it does its definitely a burnt out contact within the fixture. If the tester does not light up its a wiring issue!

Get a good bulb put it in correct.have someone behind the wheel.try the brake does it work/no/take a thin match stick a nd wedge it in until light works.take a screw driver and move the metal arouound until light stays on.should be fine after that.modern tech work
