Brake light melting

Why every few months do i have to replace the brake light because the bulb is getting so hot that it is melting the plastic on the bulb...is this a common problem or do u think that getting another light board and replace the whole thing will solve the problem????

I never heard of this problem,If I were you i would get another one from the junk yard and see what happens.It probably will work,sometimes things are defective and they don't get found until a person like you has the problem.Good Luck!

Bad circuit board tail light asseblise connector pin to board poor connection or burned push in light bulb sockets
On my '93 Chevy PU the new ones went bad within months I repaired the original ones by soldering all connector pins to the board cleaned the sockets chipping out melted plastic been working for five years now.
Care must be taken to keep solder from preventing wire connector install while using enough that plugging it in will not break these delicate unions.
Required pulling them several times to Finnish repair successfully.
Very disappointed in replacement parts.

When light switch is off only 3rd brake light work, when switch is on the back lights are stuck on 3rd light works normal what could be the problem?


Are the brake lights stuck on or are you just seeing the parking lights on without the brake lights lighting up? Sounds like you have no rear brake lights, check your emergency light switch. Sometimes it may not switch completely, turn it on and off a few time and then recheck it.

2003 durango brake light not working


If only one brake light is out (mine was driver's side) and you've tried changing the bulb, then it might be a metal contact in the bulb socket in the light assembly. Looks like the hot bulb melts the plastic and lets the one or more bulb contacts sink into the socket and pull away from the base of the bulb, preventing electrical contact. A little coating of solder on the socket contact(s) gave enough height to contact the base of the new bulb and get the brake light working again.

If the switch keeps melting, the heavy draw is down steam, not up steam.
The most likely is too bright of bulbs in the brake light sockets in back.
You can replace them with LED bulbs for only a little bit more, and it would probably stop the problem. But if not, you could install a relay. The switch would turn the relay on and off, and the relay would turn the bulbs on and off. Not hard to do.

Your bulbs may still be bad, some bulbs, (like 1157 bulbs) have 2 elements that work independently of each other even though they are part of the same bulb. One element will light up for the tail lights one for the brake lights. Pull them out and look at them if you see any sign of black or a broken element, replace them.

The problem is that the tail lights, light bulbs get too hot and melt the plastic where the bulb socket goes into the lens assembly. On the lens assembly you will see one to three metal tabs where the socket fits into. Lift up the tab a little bit with a screw driver and place a small amount of either metal or plastic underneath the tab so it will get a good connection. It will fix the problem.
