    I desperately need help on this one guys, my rear break light was not working so i found out the problem it was the connection that was completely dead, so i bridged the break from the drivers side to the passenger and tested it with the holder and a new bulb from the drivers side and it worked. put everything back into place pressed the break pedal and mysteriously the passenger one doesnt work again. so i tested it again with new bulbs and swapped the holder from the drivers to passengers and it worked fine, there is a connection now but when i put the holders back in only one light works when i break :S just confusing really if anybody has any ideas i would be happy to hear them.

    if you need better explaining il try my best but im baffled lol

    and im sorry if there is already a thread about this somewhere but i could not find one so maybe im the first ? lol
