Ok, this isn't technically a problem with my GA, but i was just wondering on how to fix this and i figured this is obviously the place to go.

When my lights are on, my tail lights are fine. When i hit my brakes however - my tail lights light up two different bulbs. The driver side lights the outer light, and the passenger side lights the inner. I included a pic so you know wth i'm talking about.

((the green arrow points to the one i'm confused about))
shouldn't they both be outer? And does anyone know a way to fix this?

thanks in advance!

All of those are supposed to light up when braking. Odds are those two burned out the brake lights, but the running lights are still good but you'll still have to replace them.

X3, you just need new bulbs and/or to clean the contacts

Can the corrosion problem let one light work but not the other?

I dont know, i had all kinds of problems with one filliment (sp?) being out and not others on brand new bulbs. I would shake the bulb around in its spot and it would work fine. So dirty/corroded contacts could be the problem i suppose.
