Brake light problem!! Help!!
I recently purchased a 2004 Land Rover Discovery. After being pulled over by a policeman shortly after, I was informed that my passenger side brake light was out which I thought was weird because I checked them out before I bought the vehicle and they worked fine. I went back home did some investigating and from realized what was going on:
With my headlights off and the brake pedal depressed, my passenger side brake light will turn on but doesn't seem as bright as the driver's side.
With my headlights on, the brake light bulb seems to shine normally when not in use but when I depress the brake, the brake light bulb goes off instead of getting brighter.
I've changed the bulb and the fuse but the problem continues and this seems to be the only bulb that is effected so I'm assuming the problem is a short in the wiring or I'm missing a connection somewhere connected to this bulb.
Is this a common problem others have seen? Any idea where the short may be before I start tearing down my Disco?
