I have an 03 Silverado three time people have told me my right brake light was out. when i got home and checked it it would work checked the bulb and it was fine. checked the wires going into the socket [tug pull twist] the light stayed on so i changed the bulb anyway. then again some one wold tell me it was out. i checked it again and it was fine. anyone else have this problem?
Thanks:hyper:

I would start by pulling out the bulb and looking inside the socket. Sometimes the little contacts inside the socket get recessed too far and dont make contact with the bulb. Get a small flat blade and pry them out slightly, then put a little dielectric grease on the bulb itself and see what happens. If there is any corrosion or burn marks inside the socket it may need to be replaced, but try that first.
