Driverside tail light doesnt work. The BRAKE LIGHT to be specific. The Housing holds 3 bulbs. The top 2 work. But the bottom one doesnt.I replaced bulbs after bulbs no USE.I bout no housing twice.1st used from junkyard. Then brand new from AUTOZONE. Not ac delco I know, but it does the same
could it be an electircal problem or just an fuse switch?

Does the other brake lites high and low, work ok? Your lower brake lites and turn signals use the same bulb filament, just not at the same time. Yellow wire is voltage for turn and brake, if no voltage, backtrack circuit to the multifunction switch. All repair info says to disarm air-bag, where applicable, when working around steering column.

Hi, try the link above, all donations are appreciated.

Any bulbs that don't make good contact, sometimes a blob of grease on the end helps, not dielectric. I don't know how the alarm was wired? I'd check voltage and ground at the bulb circuit, then backtrack.
