Tail light works but not brake light


Asked by TheExselsior Jun 15, 2019 at 06:13 PM about the 2002 Saturn L-Series 4 Dr L100 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My brake light is not working properly. When
I have my lights turned on, both tail lights
work. When I push in the brakes, however,
the passenger side does not get any brighter.
If the lights are not turned on and I push on
the brakes, the same light does not turn on at
all. I changed the bulb and I still have the
problem. The brake light fuse is also fine.
One thing is that the socket that the bulb
goes in looks sort of burned or blacked. How
do I know what to fix? Should I replace the
whole socket piece? Thanks!

1 Answer


Alright I replaced the whole bracket thing that the pictured piece and some wires are on. This fixed the problem!
