I have a couple weird problems, one light is bright & the other tail light is dimmed. When I put my car in reverse the two white lghts turn on, but when I just push the brake pedal only one of the rear white lghts turns on or when I am about to put the in drive. :violin Help!!!

Sounds like you might have a grounding problem with one of your lamps. When you push on the brake and one of your back-up lamps goes out it is because the "sneak" ground path it found thru the stop lamp bulbs was eliminated. Is that the same side you notice the dim tail lamps? The lamp assembly has a 5-way connector. Cavity C (Black wire) is the ground. You have to remove the lamp assembly in order to access the wiring connector - thumb screws inside trunk.
