Is this a known problem? I always see them on the street and its the same thing. The top two bulbs work on both sides but the single bottom bulb is out on both sides. Changing the bulbs is only temporary. It'll work for a little while but then they go out again.

Should I just change the pig tails?

How does the socket look? Is the gasket around the bulb base intact? If the other 2 are staying on you could just change the bottom sockets. Make sure to use heat shrink on the wiring.

Still having this problem. I actually starting to doubt whether all three are indeed supposed to light up when braking or not. The weird part is the third socket and bulb is different than the top two.

Regardless here is a pic of both the socket/bulb and housing.

parking lights work, just not the brake or turn signals ONLY on the bottom/third bulb.

If anyone can help, I would greatly appreciate it. I have spare entire housings and pigtails of necessary.

Thanks!
