High Brake Light Struggles
Firstly, apologies if this has been covered before somewhere. I couldn't find anything about it.
Here's the run down:
2008 Cobalt LS
Problem Summary: The high brake light will not work consistently. If I have someone press the brake, I can get the lights to function while pressing them in, but once I let go they shut off.
Details/Troubleshooting: I recently obtained this car and when I got it, all three bulbs were burned out or missing. Went to AutoZone to get new ones. I got Sylvania 912s as recommended by their website. The old ones had no markings on them, so I can only assume that AutoZone is selling the correct ones. They appear to at least be close in physical appearance. Once I tried them and they did not work without persuasion, I hit up the local junk yard and grabbed a replacement socket to rule that out, still the same issue. Checked Voltage at the connector and that checked out as well
Anyone else run into this? Other ideas that I might try? Thanks in advance!
