    this probably has nothing to do with the bulbs. check to make sure your wiring is right, most of the time it is just a ground. pull the bulbs out to make sure there isnt any obvious defects such as a broken fillament or corrosion around any fittings. going the led rout is going to be a lot more expensive than checking grounds or replacing bulbs.

    Normally it is a bad ground connection. You just have to clean the connection and it should take care of the problem. Good Luck and let us know.

    I take it your lights are doing the typical fade. moisture gets inside and EATS all the chrome coating off.

    If its not physically a bulb then its time for some good used taillights.

    It's just the chrome paint has faded/flaked off/etc in your housing. You can try opening it up and spraying on some new paint. Just need to make sure you reseal it good to keep out any moisture.

    There is a writeup on tech. One guy did a VERY good job, the next broke the light in two!
