    The rear brake lights overheat resulting in the plastic lamp bulb connectors melting and finally the lamp itself breaks a filament. The service lamp filament which is the in the same bulb continues to operate. I tried fitting LED bulbs to try and reduce the current drain, but both burnt out as soon as the brakes were applied.

    Original lamps working ok, but wanted to replace brake lights with LED " light bulbs" for safety..... ( brighter, longer life, and faster "on" time for brake light display ) LED base just melted ....... the LED was labeled as the correct filament replacement.... not sure why LED bulb / base would justmelt......
