Yeah, when my brake light was out it was actually a bad connection point in the taillight housing (the black part that holds all the bulbs).

Oddly enough, my dealership sold the individual bulbs for about $8 each, but the entire housing with each bulb already in it (5 bulbs I think) was only about $20.
