Question about 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

Brake light passenger side is out. After changing the bulb, will not light. Wires look in good shape, not corrosion or breaks. While putting the fixture back into place, quickly came on then went off again? Is it the wire harness and how much involved to repair?

The problem is suspected to be the 'contacts' at the base of the bulb socket/holder/fixture - poor contact. If the contact point overheated and it melted (then 'sank' into its holder/fixture, then replace the bulb socket.

1995 Dodge Dakota signal light and brake lights quit


I had the same problem that the brake light / turn signal on the right side didn't work (in the 2006 Dodge Caravan it's the same bulb). After a long search I found the problem: There was corrosion on the contact of the bulb assembly. After scraping off the corrosion everything works now.

Regular lights work but when u press brake only passenger brake light goes on, i changed the brake bulb which was bad but still no brake light when pushing brake on driver side


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
