05 Liberty Tail Light Issue
 
My daughter has an 05 Liberty with a break tail light that stays on and eventually burns out. It only happens on one side. I replaced the bulb and socket three weeks ago but she was pulled over by a policeman last night and fortunately just given a warning for a burnt out tail light. Any ideas on why only one buld would stay on?

Are you sure one side stays on, or are you presuming it because it burns every time? If it stays on, then it is getting voltage from an other source then the brake switch. Could be a problem in the light assy circuit board or eventually the socket.
Will it be on all the time, or only when the lights are switched on?

I can't be sure because I haven't witnessed it but the one side that the bulb keeps burning out has gotten so hot that the lens slightly melted. The socket was burnt as well which I replaced when I also replaced the bulb but it wnet out again.
