Driver side tail light problem..

Well i'm currently having a problem with my driver side tail light.. The only light that doesnt light up is the 2nd/middle socket/bulb.. I have changed all the bulbs and it still doesnt work, i cannot figure out what it could be, i switched the sockets around and still the middle one wouldnt work.. Anyone know what it could be? Maybe the circuit board..? If so how do i get another

Re: Driver side tail light problem..

You have to replace the tail light. I got mine on Amazon for $40. Buy an OEM v

Re: Driver side tail light problem..

Before you do that, try checking the actual prongs on the bulb connector and contact point. Sometimes its as simple as prying either/or to make solid connections. I found a video on youtube about it and it worked for mine.

Good point, sometimes the contacts get corroded, too

The fuse box closer to the front of the truck under the hood, pop that fuse box open and there should be a line of about hmm 10-12 number 20 fuses.. The first blown fuse was the second number 20 fuse.. And the second blown fuse was the fourth 20 fuse closer to the right end of the fuses if that makes sense. Ill try to take a pic soon for u guys
