There may be corrosion on the terminals that make contact with the bulb. Some times just scraping the terminals will solve the problem. Or the spring is not pushing the terminals close enough to the bulb. Worth a try. Best of luck.I hope you already fixed it.
no that light wouldnt have nothing to do with it. did you take the bulb out and visually inspect it?? or just go by the brake light working?? either bulb is bad, or short in the wire going to the socket
It sounds like one of two things. One the light may be burnt out. If you have not already checked it, look in your owners manual for how to access the bulb. You can take the turn signal bulb that does work, into the socket and see if the problem rests with the bulb or the wiring. If the bulb looks fine, check your fuses if you have not done so already. If you do not know which fuses, or where, control your turn signal, look in your owners manual. You may need to check more than one fuse as the light may be protected by muiltiple fuses doing different jobs. If all seems fine here and the light still wont work, check all the wires that lead to the light. Also check to see if there is some corrosion or rust in the bulb socket. That might affect the bult as well.
1st make sure you got the right bulb. You will need a test light, which you can purchase at walmart for 3.00 $ Check the bulb holder for power, if their is power than the issue has to do with the bulb contact. The holder may need to be replaced, which you can get at the dealer ship.. Price ? I'm not sure...if no power you'll have to check the wiring and see if you can find a break in the wiring.
most rear tail lights and turn/stop lights are the same dual filiment bulb. it is possible for your tail light to work and your brake light not to and still have a bad bulb. I would check the bulb first, your brake light works on the left yes? this would mean that the fuse is fine
i was having a similar problem with my 2000 SL. when the taillights would go, so would the cruise control. and through many bulb and fuse replacements, i finally went into a saturn dealership and they did a recall campaign on it. they did their thing and i havnt had any problems since. FREE!
