Tahoe 3rd Brake light not working

Asked by Oct 22, 2012 at 12:52 AM about the 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a third brake light that wont work. I have checked the wires and plugs, I get power to the light, and when I test the light on my work bench it works fine. Once I plug it back in and install it, it wont work.

Ground contacts somewhere, you seem to have done everything right, the contacts from socket to bulb..... New bulb, whether it works on your bench or not (all of a buck) .....and aerosol contact cleaner, the only thing left is ground on vehicle. Good luck.

I have the same problem just wondering if u figured it out

I know how to take it out I Just wanted to know Does it have Bulb or a Fuse

I can't get no power to the wire.and there is two cords.the second one is back behind the grommet. So if any of you know which cluster of wires above the tail pipe runs to that light I would greatly appreciate it
