Hi All,

 

Having some difficulty establishing the source of an electrical fault which means I currently only have one brake light on my cabbie.

 

The near side brake light is out, however when I swap the bulbs over left to right the bulb is fine on the other side, and the nearside still doesn't come on.

 

I haven't double checked this, but as far as I'm aware both brake lights are on the same fuse, so I don't think that is the issue.

I'm going to go round the car with a multimeter see if I can't find the problem, but I wondered if there were any common places, or if anyone has had an issue like this in the past?

 

Cheers,

Hawkeye

sounds to me like a possible corrosion issue on the wire / holder.
