Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner past midnight.

Do you own a test light or volt meter so we can do some electrical tests?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I have both voltmeter and test light. Something I didn't mention is that when the old socket that would burn the bulb, I would get the normal rapid relay click. Once I replaced it all was fine...for a little while. I no longer get a rapid clicking that normally warns of a bulb problem.

If the passenger rear parking light works then the ground is good. If there is no power on the gray/light blue wire when braking then we need to check this wire at the SJB to see if the SJB or wire is bad. Use the links below.

Hello again Chris here,

  • Sorry you were not pleased with my help.
  • What would you like to do regarding your question now.
  • This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. When a post times out, that means it's no longer on my active list (you reply and I may never know it.)

Thanks Chris

It's not what you did. I got power to bulb area for brake light but it won't come on even with a new bulb, plus I'm unable to get to the main power distribution center. It's over my head I guess ability wise.
