Brake Light Problem**

Ok, So if it werent enough trouble that im having problems with my turn signals (see my TURN SIGNAL PROBLEM thread) I just realized my breaklights are not right either.


Symptoms: When headlights are turned on, the taillights light up fine, but always light up really bright as if the brakes are on. Then, when the brakes are applied, the lights dont get any brighter or dimmer. Any suggestions as to what to check?

I had the same problem(s)- In my scenario, it turned out to be the socket for the driver's side front turning signal (not the one mounted in the flare, but the one beside the headlight.) I checked all the sockets and that one had some burned residue down where the bulb plugged in. I replaced the socket, then used dielectric grease in all the sockets to prevent another water-caused electrical malfunction. No problems ever since... good luck.
