    My brake light goes out!

    1995 DeVille. When I hit the brake pedel (while my lights are on), the right brake light goes out. I already replaced the bulb. Can anyone tell me what the problem is? Thanx

    Does that particular bulb light when the brake is depressed and the parking lights are off?

    Take apart your brake light housing and inspect it to see if the two metal strips are touching each other. When replacing or taking one out, one will flip up; they'll contact and release the smoke out of your bulbs.
