    Left and right brake lights don't work, but all other lights do including the middle brake light. Mechanics have checked the brake pedal switch and it is working. Dealer wants to replace the whole assembly, says connectors have melted and/or are bent. I have bought 2 tail light assemblies over the past 2 years. Now I have the same problem again. Any ideas????

    Both brake lights are out. Cyclops light works, all other lights work.  I replaced the bulbs, obviously, didn't fix it.  I checked with a meter and I'm getting only 11 volts at the brake light assembly.  I checked at the fuse and there is 12.2 volts.  I'm suspicious that there is an electronic relay that's gone bad, but I don't know where it would be. And it can't be the same one that powers "cyclops".  Mysterious.

one bulb type has 2 contacts and the other has 1 contact which if placed in the wrong holder will short out the circuit and blow the fuse

most blinkers uses relays, and when they flashes fast one light is out, but you replaced your burnt bulb might be a bad relay.

When you use the blinker, it's shorting with the brake light and causing them both to flash...

Check the socket and get back to me with the result.
