Right break light not working

Asked by Nov 06, 2017 at 09:58 AM about the 2011 Honda Civic

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2011 Honda Civic. Recently, one of the
break lights stopped working. Both tail lights go on
with the headlights, but only one of them (the left
side) gets brighter when I apply the breaks. I
beleive there is only one bulb for both the tail light
and break light, and the bulb clearly isn't burnt out
because it goes on, just doesnt get brighter. Do
need to change the bulb, or fix the wiring..? The
fuse? Anybody know.. Thanks so much!! Eagerly
awaiting some help!

It may very well be burned out or have a broken filament inside the bulb, visually is the best way to see this. these bulbs have 2 filaments, one for tail lights and the other for brake or turn signals, depending on how the vehicle is wired.

Thanks! I'm gonna try that.. I appreciate the quick response.
