My 2008 Saturn vue...

My 2008 Saturn vue brake light keep going out. I replace the bulb 2 weeks ago and the light went out again. What can that be. Do it need a new tail light harness?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the bulbs? Have you checked the connection?

I check the bulbs still good and the connection fine

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your VUE yourself? What have you tried so far?

My brother is. He check all connections and the bulb aren't blown yet.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I need to know what part I need to get in order for this to be fix

Which brake light is out? Left or right side?

What size engine do you have?

Right, 4AWD

Thank you. Have you checked power to the right rear brake lamp?

Ask Your Own Saturn Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Can the tail light harness need to be replace?

YES it is possible. However, it is also possible that the right rear tail lamp assembly/socket is faulty. This would be much more likely.

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I though that two

However, just be sure that there is power and ground going to it so that will rule out a wiring issue/harness issue. If all checks out good, replace the right rear tail lamp assembly and you will be good to go!
