Hey genius's need quick help..
I got one tail light out, when i put my foot on the brake all the tail lights and brakes lights go out?? is it as simple as changing a bulb, or will it be something more sinister??

Yeah true, although if it was the earth you would likely get a fading effect.

Good to hear it wasn't something nasty

just had the same problem. Mine was a bad earth though. I changed the wiring loom that goes into the tail light and it fixed it.

My headlights would come on everytime I braked. My break lights would turn off though. It made it very dangerous for a while lol

Ouch, the entire loom? or just the tail light - earth part?
