    Hello, I have an issue with my offside rear tail light. The issue is that only one of the bulbs come on, I know both the bulbs are ok as I have swapped them over. A previous owner has removed the earth wire from the loom, crimped on a spade connector and pushed it onto the tab as you see in the various DIYs. I have tried earthing at different points and on one of the rails both the tail light bulbs come on but not at full brightness. Any ideas??/

    have you got the right bulbs in there?
    i.e should be a double filament bulb..

    you may have a single filament one...

    I have checked both sides and all 4 bulbs are single filament. These are the rear tail light bulbs so they should be single filament. I just checked the voltage on the working bulb holder and the non working. The non working is getting power but slightly less then the bulb that is working.
    Any suggestions welcome?
