    Brake light out - help!

    My passenger side brake light is out and I am having trouble finding the cause. I've replaced the bulbs with new ones and still doesn't work. When I turn on the lights, they all work. Its just the one light that doesn't work when I use the brake, turn signal, and hazard lights. The sockets don't look corroded from what I can tell. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what it might be?

    My dad, who is a retired electrician, suggests the problem might be in the turn signal switch in the steering column. I trust his opinion, but wanted to know if there was someone else out there that has had this issue and what they did to fix it. I hope its something easy so I don't have to go tearing into the steering column.

    Thanks

    I would suspect a bad ground

    Are you using the correct bulb?

    I forgot to metion that I checked the voltage (while having someone press the brake pedal) and there was no voltage. That doesn't exactly rule out an incorrect bulb though. I'll check that and see.
