Hey everyone,

Just been having a little problem over the last few weeks. When my headlights are off, my brake lights are working perfectly normally, however when I have my headlights on it seems that my drivers side parker/ brake bulb is staying on constantly, far brighter than the passenger side. I checked with the multimeter and that side it definitely getting more power. Swapped the two bulbs around, nothing so I know it can't be the bulb.

Thanks in advance for all you help.

Cheers,
Will

Is the buld in the right way. If they are in reversed this can happen. Take the bulb out and turn it 180deg then re insert, see if this fixes it.

+1 for the globe being in 180 degrees out.
they fit in easily one way the other is a bit tight the first time, it pushes the raised bit into the globe base a bit if u force the globe in that way

on the globes there should be off set hold tabs the (little horn looking things) and you will see in the globe holder that one slot goes down deeper than the other make sure the tab at the bottom of the globe is going into the deep slot also to double check get someone to put their foot on the brake without the tails on and see if ones brighter than the other
