Yesterday the upper and middle bulb in my passenger tail lamp quit. Pulled the cover and when I tweaked the bulbs they started working at full brightness again. I spread on some dielectric grease to keep out some water, I could already see corrosion on the aluminum even though I had cleaned em light a month ago. Tested them again and they worked fine blinker/running/brake.
But put the cover back on and sure enough no brake/blinker/running lights.
When I bought the jeep all of the lights were burnt out in the tail lamps. A few were even filled with water. I extensively cleaned all the sockets and put in all new bulbs. I think I need to put some skinny, stick on, foam weatherstripping around the interior of the housing to make a better seal with the lens.
Anyways, my theory is the sockets are bad, the spring seems a little sticky. or I was reading about connectors on the inside of the lamps. Do I just need to pull the interior cover to reach the back of the housings?
