Asked by Feb 19, 2012 at 10:32 PM about the 2007 GMC Yukon Denali AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The top tail light bulb works with lights on but with lights off and pressing brake it doesnt? I am going to change the bulb but doesn't seem like that the bulb would be the answer. Also I removed both screws to remove tail light and when I tried to remove it, it was not coming out. Didnt want to break it so is there a trick to getting it out? Thank you for time and help in advance.

tail light bulbs have 2 filliments inside, you can blow the brake light one and still have the tail light one work, seems like you need a new bulb =) good luck should be an easy fix from discription

Like Michael said it's a two filliment bulb so if one goes the other will still work. If I was you I'd change both bulbs as they like to brake in pairs, so the other one may go out soon.

i am having same problem with mine and its not the bulbs in the daytime no problems, only when all lights are on do i have problem so, basically only at night, when brake is applied the driver rear goes out and turn signal will blink fast when turned on and foot on brake.
