2006 dodge 2500 mega cab diesel 5.9

Brake lights not working, bulbs appear to be good filament not burned out. Fuses appear to be good. All other lights work. Please help The center cab mounted brake light works as it should.

Bulbs can be funky and look good so really need to put a known good one in. Both at once could be that you didn't notice one out for a while or just bad luck. That or a common ground at sockets or assembly could have failed or other things but rule that out. One more: If DIY done trailer wiring was installed, check that too,

Hey

Thanks I actually went and bought new bulbs after I posted that I then put them in and they worked ! Then I went in the house and received your response, looking through the plastic tail light the appeared fine but once I pulled it apart they were definately bad as the blackening showed. Thanks again!

Do grease sockets when doing bulbs but should be some leftover. I've pulled hair out determining a bad bulb when they look good and takes a magnifying glass to see the break in filament. Black bulb is a giveaway that it's no good.

Many of these are powerful bulbs and get real hot. Like bulbs for home or whatever those list how many hours they are expected to last so expect some others to go too unless you know they have already been done,
