Tail light socket broken in 1999 nissan pathfinder

I need a new tail light/brake light socket for the drivers side of my nissan pathfinden (1999) and can't seem to find one anywhere. Any ideas on where to get one rather than the dealership (who wants to charge me almost $300 to fix it)

SOURCE: I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo - One Brake Light

First, I want to say thank you for the info, you saved me money and aggravation. Second it took mea little while to figure out what contact I was looking for. So I would like to provide a little more detail to make it easier for others in the future.
This is the corrective method for your brake lights not working when your headlights are on(2000 Jeep Cherokee Larado).
1) The cause of the problem is heat from the bulb.
2) Remove the light assembly as if you were going to change a bulb.
3) Turn the socket and remove it from the taillight assembly and set it aside(check to be sure your bulb is not burnt out).
4) Look at the opening, you will see 3 flat chrome colored contacts on the assembly.
5) Notice the one by it self at the top of the opening, that is the "ground".
6) If you look closely you will notice the plastic around the ground contact has shrunk a little bit, this caused the contact to pull away from the socket, causing the problem.
7) With a small flat head screwdriver, VERY GENTLY pry up the contact so it stays slightly upward by itself.
8) Re-insert the bulb assembly back into the housing and press your brake petal with your lights on.
9) You should be in good to go!
10) Tools: Phillips head screwdriver and a small flat head screwdriver.
11) Time : 5 minutes per light

Open the trunk and locate the trim door that covers the back of the drivers side tail light assembly. Open the door and locate the bulb holder. The bulb holder can be removed from the tail light assembly housing by turning counter clockwise 1/4 turn. Holding the bulb holder in one hand, press gently on the bulb and turn then bulb counter clockwise to remove. Replace with a combo bulb and reverse proceedure to re-install.

98 pathfinder no tail lights or parking lights or turning signals, but head light and brake lights work


I would hazard (!) a guess that the relay in the engine bay is toast, the headlights are on a different circuit and a different relay. Check the fuse box if you already haven't, if all the fuses look good then verify that the wiring from the fuse panel to the tail lights is getting power. There is also another relay at the back on the driver's side for the tail lights if I remember correctly but as you have brake lights I suspect that there is more than one problem here.

Tail lights/turn signals and driver brake lights work, passenger-side brake light doesn't


Find a multimerter or an ohmmeter and someone to work it and test the socket to see if electricity is getting to the bulb. Someone will need to push on the brake pedal whilst someone else tests it.
Sometimes a wire can break, or sometimes a metal contact inside the socket can go bad, or can bend in such a manner that the bulb no longer contacts it. Also, sometimes new bulbs are defective.
Be blessed.

The lights get power from somewhere else, not their control button - you will need to access the wire connector at the left cluster and locate the wire that delivers the power and the status of the grounding connection/bolt (most likely it's corroded). Since the cluster of lights above the rear window are the central brake lights only it means that if you get them constantly on then the brake lights are constantly on . To check for that is easy, just test the brake pedal switch.

Drivers side tail light


Remove the tail light, then the grey bar with all the lights by removing the two screws at the top and bottom. play with the light socket that dosen't work and chances are that it is cracked and broken. If it is broken then the contacts within are not making contacts becuase the black plastic socket is used to hold the contacts together. If you are handy, you can tear open the grey bar and solder the contacts together, then epoxy the bar back together. Or, find, purchase and replace the grey light socket bar.

Tail lights 99 jeep grand cherroke limited


have you checked the bulb sockets to see if they are burnt or corroded sometime i see that the plastic melts around the contacts where the socket twists into the housing. if your lucky you might get away with replacing just the socket for the brake/running light bulb. but if it is too melted your most likely going to need a new housing
