Really? This is a first. You are in Anaheim and dakotastonyplain is where? Are you for real? Begin to offer housecalls and post a phone number. Man, do I have a lot of work for you my friend


i live in stony plain, alberta hopefully you can still help?? :$

Ahhh...a used car lot...that explains a lot Newport Beach not Anaheim my mistake..Newport Beach, some of the most expensive Real Estate in the world....home of Dean Koontz....pricey...more than Malibu even

That's only about 1500 miles. No problem. dakota don't egg him on

are you sure you didn't just put in single element bulb instead of a double fllament? I have also had to replace the sockets on mine for the same malfunction.

Chris McGee

try swaping the 1st and second sockets (from the top) should be a three pin


swapped the sockets and the same problem. the tail lights wont light up at all

It could be a fuse. Check all your fuses in your fuse box. One might be blown.
