Question about 2000 Dodge Stratus
If all your lights and signals are working properly, just the one brake light is not working more than likely its a bad ground wire to that specific light I'm not sure if your technically inclined or not, but to pull out the light and test it for continuity, other wise if you don't have a meter to test with there are only 2 wires for that light carefully splice the ground wire and ground it to the body of the car, also make sure to have a fresh bulb in the socket. Then press on the brake and see if it lights up, if the bulb blows out then you have a short circuit somewhere and need to take it to a professional

Open up the tail gate, you will see two torque screws on the inside beside the tail lights. take these out, this will free up the housing and you can change it from there.

You have a bad connection at the rear passenger side turn signal. It is either the connection is corroded or a wire is loose on the ground side of the circuit.

Testimonial: "Thank you so much!!! Good things be with you!!"
SOURCE: regular lights work but when
sounds like you have a short in the drivers side brake light. it may be due to corrosion in the bulb inlet.try cleaning the bulb socket itself with wd40 or add bulb grease to the bulb. you may have a broken wire to it also.check with a test light to confirm you have power to the bulb when brakes applied,this will take 2 people 1 to press brakes and1 to check for current with a test light at the tail light itself. you may only have corrosion in the brake light bulb socket,so,,do this 1st. with lights off,, remove the bulb on driversside, add a little bulb grease to your bulb,insert it into the bulb socket,and then remove the bulb again,do this 3 times,make sure the bulbs getting connection. then apply the brakes and see if the light comes on. thank you for choosing fixya.com
