The driver's side brake light is out. I replaced the bulb. The light does work while the car is started, but the brake light does not come on. The passenger's side brake light is still working fine.

More then likely the brake light bulb you bought is the wrong one. This is the one you need 2057LL

How to fix a 2009 Honda accord brake light on the drivers side. I replaced the bulb on both side but still the brake light doesn't work on the drivers side.


Go to www.bbbind.com for a wiring diagram of the brake light circuit , get a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter an trace out the circuit . You know the right side works so the brake light switch is good . Take your volt meter an check to see which part of the circuit is bad . At the brake light bulb socket test for voltage on the power side , if battery voltage is there,then check ground side . I forgot you need to have some one press on the brake pedal while testing . You could have a bad ground or an open on the power side of the circuit , you need to find the wiring harness that goes to the back of the car , check connectors ,wiring etc... There is more to electrical trouble shooting then just replacing parts . Watch this video on voltage drop testing . Mastering Voltage Drop Testing with Pete Meier and Jerry Truglia

2011 ford feista se brake light out on drivers side. Running light and blinker work. Have replaced bulb and socket with same results what do I do now?


Did you try the passenger side brake bulb in the driver side socket (maybe the new lamp is bad)??

If it works, then the problem is either a bad ground connection / wire at / between chassis and the shell of brake lamp socket, or bad 12 volt wire at / between the common passenger 12 volt brake light wire in the harness to the center contact on the brake lamp socket.

My suggestion is if the brake lamp wire is ONLY for brakes - not the directional too, simply add a new wire spliced into the passenger side brake light wire and extend it to the brake light wire closest to the new socket that you recently installed on the driver side. Disconnect the vehicle brake wire from the new socket and wire nut it off or tape it up (so it can't short out if it somehow becomes energized again) and splice this new wire to the new socket.

Test & you're done!

Look for a missing / poor ground connection on the drivers side lamps.
