I was wondering if any of you other guys with had problems with one of your taillights being a lot more dim than the other. I changed all of the bulbs and it made no difference. Any help would be appreciated.

I had a problem with mine, and it turned out to be a bad ground in the sockets. I'm not sure why GM went with the 3 wire system, but i ended up changing all the light sockets out in back with aftermarket and so far it has fixed the problem. The draw back is the replacement sockets are pricey, so double check that you may have the same issue. Good luck

if its leaking water, it can get a film on the inside of it. my seal was broke and it held water, so i replaced it and np.

I had problem with 94 T/A ,I took a paperclip and shoved wire(clip) in the ground wire socket from back.If you have lights on you'll see it light up brighter when you insert wire.then cut off extra wire and seemed to work sold 2 years later.JUST A RIG NEED NEW SOCKETS
