    Intermittent brake light outage problem (2000 9/5 Aero)

    Hi
    My drivers side brake light persistently outs - doesn't blow the bulb, and the other 2 lamps in the 3 lamp cluster are fine as are all 3 on the other side. Thye wiring looks in good condition. Sometimes if I twiddle aimlessly it comes back on but then I lose it a few miles down the road.

    I wonder if the panel have any insight into this!

    Best regards
    Ian Morrison

    This is a common problem on 9000's, not heard of it occuring on a 9-5?

    On the 9000 it was usually dirty/corroded contacts causing the problem.

    Same thing happened to my 9-5 Aero. Problem solved by slightly bending the contact fingers within the lamp holder.
