Hey so i had replaced my tailight like last week or three because my other was totled from a drunk drive rear ending it i had this same problem after it got hit so i bought a new tail light everything works fine so chose to have my daylight lights on beofre it was gettin dark boom lamp defective i couldnt find it but i noticed the turn signal worked and the lamp on right was working if wiggled it happend on my new replacement aftermarket stopped working i mean the turn signal works i was driving down street But the brake and tailight is not and the lamp message poped on i went to a parking lot and the tailight was on i guess the brake like was not i wiggled it poped on i thought it was the housing so i switched sockets they worked on the driver all sockets .. so now im lost i can easily try to get carparts.com to return item but they take for ever for reply my first and possibly last time plus i got a warrenty its. Ot even 90days or 30 at that the part was nice compared to oem they look the same just oem is a tad but more darker red but at night u cant really tell they blend but im wondering what happend? Can i fix this or am i just better of tryna get carparts.com to ship a new one? But whos to say the new one dont burn out again?

Make sure you insert the brake bulb into the socket properly, and it is the correct bulb type (7225).
