    2001 catera brake light

    My in-laws 01 catera passenger side brake light is staying on when the lights are on. What could be the problem here, brake switch or relay?

    Is there a remote chance that someone switched the bulbs when repairing, i.e. put normal brake harness in light and light in brake?

    Is the rear trunk brake light on as well? If it is not then it cannot be the brake switch for sure.

    Cheers.

    The bulbs are fine. I replaced the bulbs two days ago because the ones on the trunk was out and the passenger side was weak. After, I replaced them I noticed that passenger side bulb was still the same, not bright enough compared to the rest of the bulbs when the brake was applied. Then Last night the passenger side was brighter and stays like that the whole time when compared to the rest of the bulbs (trunk and driver) side. The brightness of the other bulbs will match the passenger side when the brake was applied.
