2002 Pontiac Montana Q&A

2002 Pontiac Montana Question: Rear brake lights keep blowing out.

The center brake light works fine. The problem is with the two rear brake lights. They constantly burn out. Every time I replace the bulbs, they work for a short while, but very soon they stop lighting. When I check the bulbs the plastic base with the thin wiring are all melted and have a burning smell. What can I do? please send anser to gordongerber@bellsouth.net -

Answer 2
Sounds like the sockets are bad. Old burnt out bulbs can cause this. -
Answer 3
Purchase oem rear light sockets that hold the bulbs. they cost about $50 each from the dealer. -
