Thanks for the quick reply. I have not changed out any of the OEM bulbs. The bulbs all appeared fine when I was sanding the contact points. I did not notice any cracks or moisture in them. I was actually hoping for some kind of corrosion on the contacts in order to explain the original Brake Light Circuit error I was getting. The only issue that I found was a small hole that was burned into the metal plate that one of the brake lights makes contact with. I read that someone else on the forum had this issue. I think they told him that the hole was fine. I've attached a picture so you can see what I'm talking about. Should I try to solder a patch over the hole?
