Anyone having this problem with any of their light fixtures? My left rear brake light keeps going out, and by going out, i mean, like, power stops reaching it. I cant figure it out and im afraid to rip into the wiring to check. Litterally if i remove the bulb and put it back in, it works.......for a couple days, then goes back out again. Nothing wrong with the bulb itself. I even changed it to be sure. Same thing. Super annoying since im a full time lyft driver and im ALWAYS on the road at night. Id rather not end up with a ticket lol.

You might want to try and use some electronics part cleaner you can find at most auto supply stores. Sometimes the socket may look clean to the naked eye, but may have some oxidation that can cause the issues you are dealing with. Cheap fix if it works,..................Good Luck

I believe the contacts in the socket are not making good connection. With the lights off and the bulb out of the socket bend the connectors up or away from the side so that when the bulb is inserted the contacts make harder contact with the bulb. Do not bend the contacts too much.
