hi all
my problem is as follows:
its an ef 6cyl auto sedan
RH brake light is not as bright as the LH side, ok so i changed both globes for new ones, no difference, when tail lights are on and brake lights activated, on the RH side both brake light and tail light goes out.this was also part of the initial problem.when no tail lights are on brake lights are bright on the left side and dull on the RH side.

any ideas please.

That sound pretty odd, check your relays see if there fine and not all carbon coated

Yeah relays are probably carbon coated.

there is no relay for brake lights,
relays infront of airbox are for thermo fans, ones near battery are horn, starter, low beam and high beam. under the header tank is ecu, fuel pump , ac and abs..

I would be looking at a earth issue

Hi,

Check the ground on the RHS. Also, check that the globes are twin filament, a single filament will do strange things.
