Re: 3rd brake light!
Yes, the complete bar is replaced. It's a internal problem with the lamp. Serviced lamps with warranty are available at ledfix.com .
Being the lamp is lighting up some...the fuse is ok and the vehicle wiring is ok.
IF the lamp is not lighting up at all...be sure to check the fuse. The CHMSL lamp is on a different fused circuit then the lower tail lamps. Plus the CHMSL shares the same fuse with the trailer hitch wiring...
On 2002's..check fuse #16 in the underhood junction block.
On 2003 and latter...check the 'VEH CHMSL' fuse in the drivers side dash board fuse block.
