Replacement tailight bulbs
« on: May 05, 2022, 12:02:46 PM »
I am once again looking for some help. I am replacing the bulbs in the tail tights and brake lights because they have never been changed and they were getting dim. I believe the driver side is correct and the passenger is wrong
From driver side to passenger side...
Running Light (1 filament)
Brake and Indicator (2 filament)
Brake and Indicator (2 filament)
Reverse (LED)
License plate light in the middle bottom (LED)
Reverse  (LED)
Brake and Indicator (2 filament)
Brake and Indicator (2 filament)
Running Light (1 filament)
Can someone confirm that this is correct?

In the picture, the 2 farthest right lights on the passenger side should be flipped so dont mind that

As you can see, with the lights on, the one next to the reverse light stays bright all the time. Im not sure if its the bulb or the wiring of the socket? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Left to right it should be: 1156, 1157, 1157, 1156. Try flipping the bright oneyou CAN install these backwards it seems.
A lot of times when you get that issue one of the bulbs has a filament that is grounding out. Before you go nuts, with the lights on pull each bulb individually to see the others change at all. But Id definitel start with new bulbs and go from there. Cheap and easy.
