3rd tail light 2001 tj

Hello fellow wavers! My third brake light does'nt seem to wanna work. Good bulb, no blown fuse and fixture appears to be good. Anyone have this trouble? I do however question the connection at the back gate door. It's a pressure contact connection, I think this is where I am having trouble.

A meter should be able to read the contacts and see fit here is power at the tub contacts. that will let you know if it is in the gate or the tub wiring.

I was gonna thread some small springs on the gate contacts (they move in and out) to ensure a good contact. but I removed my third taillight and never got back to it.

I accidently bedlined those connectors. I just scraped it off so they had a nice clean contact.

My contacts were kinda of loose also. So I took a rubber band and twisted it in all kinda of wraps behind the contacts on the tub and that made them stay out farther and made better contact. It was a 10 sec fix for mine

NICE! I'm known to be a bit "Macyver-ish" myself at times. That sounds like a good fix to me! Thanks!
