I just bought this car yesterday and when my son was driving it home I was fallowing him and when we were coming to a stop I noticed that his right brake light was out so I called his cell and we stopped at a parts store to replace the light. Later on that evening I noticed the same (Right Side brake light) was out again. Funny thing was when I bought the first brake light bulb I bought a spare, so we put that in and it worked but I notice that the right side is much brighter than the left side is.. Hmm
I did read on here that there has been issues with the brake switch, just wondering if that would cause one to be brighter than the other..[dunno]
Any ideas would sure help..

Thanks

There are two different bulbs [I forgot the numbers]
one draws more current [brighter] than the other one that draws less current

On some tail lights e.g. Focus wagon the light bulb holder sort of gets soft/melt with the OEM bulb [that is the brighter one] the fix would be to put in the less bright bulb that would stay cooler.
