driver's side brake light went out.. and i replaced the bulb and that didn't work.. what's the next step?
brake light went out and i replaced it. it worked for less than 24 hours. what would be the next thing to replace? the socket that the bulb goes in?
If it looks bad, try moving the bulb around to make a better connection,
I did that. i also replaced the bulb with another new one and it still doesn't work. all the rest of the lights are working so i'm assuming the socket is not connecting correctly ??? it doesn't have any corrosion on it though. i'm no expert at all but i do see all the wires feed off the turn signal. it's a 2011 toyota 4runner sr5.
With out guessing around here, to be sure is if you had a test light to see if there is power there on the power wire and in the socket. 2011 really is not that old, look for a bad ground wire in that area. Question is if you want to buy a tester, (there cheap) or buy a new socket. With a tester you can trace the problem further up stream if need be..
