Customer Question
Have a porsche cayenne...

Have a porsche cayenne 2013 4.2 v8 the lh rear lamp isn't working as a lamp but is working as a brake light a bit confused how brake lamp works but rear lamp doesn't would you know if its a fuse or other issue

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the brake fluid? How's the level and when was it last changed?

No, would this stop the rear lamp from working?

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

Nothing so far, just looking on line to see if this is a common fault

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

That' it for now

The bulbs are a duel filament bulb. One filament is for the brakes, and the other is for the parking lights. The only problem you have is you just have a bad bulb.

As mentioned initially this is a Porsche Cayenne 2013 - is an LED on across both the rear wing/fender and the boot lid/trunk lid

I understand this. Even the leds have two different lights, one for the brake lights that is brighter, and one that is not as bright for the parking lights. Leds do go bad.
