Mk6 Fiesta Brake Light Issue

4 posts in this topic

Hello

Im new to the Forum

Been using a Mk6 Fiesta Tdci 1.4 as a daily runaround (Im a normally a VAG man)

To be fair the car hasnt skipped a beat and has been a fantastic car for my daily commute.

I had a brake light go out Drivers side and whipped the rear light off amusing the double filament bulb would need replacing. After inspecting the bulb and replacing I am still having the same problem.

The other brake lights work however so im amusing it wont be a fuse issue?

Does anyone have nay insight into what may be causing this malfunction or shall I go out and get another bulb *official ford*

Pretty sure looking at the existing bulb there isnt anything wrong with it visibly at all.

Any information would be greatly appreciated

Steve

Possible dirty connection possible wiring fault. Ive had both problems. One was a dirty contact in the socket for the bulb the other, one of the wires had been slighty trapped and had shorted out
