    Blue LED thoughout & ss Nu Image dash kit, blackout headlights and taillights, mesh grill, cold air intake, gibson exhaust system, lots more whatever...keep truckin
    One of my taillights is always bright while the other side works as it should. When the breaks are depressed their both bright and when releasted only one dims. Ive replaced the dlb filiment bulbs, checked the chasie ground wires, even when I disconected the break switch one side is still briter. Someone mentioned to me that it could be the turnsignal switch? Unsure on how to fix this problem could someone help!!!
