Question about 2000 Chevrolet Venture
My brake lights on the back of the van do not work. Well, one works, the one in the back but on top (the long one). I had a friend put all new fuses in. Put all new bulbs. He checked for bare wires, corrosion, anything that didnt look good. Everything was fine, all intact, no nothing back there. Wondering what the problem might be. The shop wont give me a price cause they need to take it in and look around. Just wondering if it was something I could do and not spend all my money at the shop.
I have had the same problem on our van. The plastic housing that the bulbs snap into for some reason overheat and melt a bit. Then the connection wires on the new bulbs do not make contact to the socket. So, if your bulbs are good and still not coming on then this is likely the problem. You should be able to see melting around the contact wire in the housing. I just use a tooth pick or something small to jamb in behing it so the wire will make contact again.
