I have had this vehicle for 5 yrs, it's still a fantastic driver and 19 yrs no rust yet!! I live in New England, salt air, salted roads, rust is inevitable.

Getting to the problem, my tail light alarms all the time, I have changed bulbs, sockets and no problem until a week later and its back.

I have found the problem. I'm embarrassed that I didn't notice or bother to look at the left side. The tail and brake lights were reversed the contacts on the assembly board were not being made, therefore the notification.:thumbup:

Thanks for that suggestion. I pulled the assembly out and that must have been when I switched the tail and brake sockets, or the garage when it was inspected. The inspector and his mechanic did try to change a bulb and I did see both sockets out and bulbs checked.
My assembly has no wear or tear, and I cleaned and sprayed with contact cleaner. If I do have any corrosion, I will add some solder to the circuit board.:)
