stop lights?

hey all just wondering if anyone else has run in to this problem. I have a 99 Silverado 1500 and the problem is the stop lights in the box do not work. the light on the cab works but not the box the back up lights work and the left turn signal light works but not the right turn light. Replaced the bulbs, nothing, and noticed the element on the old bulbs were ok. also the daytime running lights are out replaced thoes bulbs also but the element are good in them also but the plastic is a little melted. Still dont work, also when the truck is running in park and i hit the breaks i here a clicking in the dash. what the heck is going on does any one have a clue?

Re: stop lights?

you probably have a short somewhere in the wiring, or a bad relay or switch. if you have a trailer harness, get under the truck and see if that is ok or if it's melted to high heaven.

as for your DRLs, what "plastic is a little melted"?

if your brake lights don't work at all, you might have a bad brake light switch.

Re: stop lights?

the part that is a little melted is the plastic bit that is attached to the bulb were it plugs in to the socket. the switch is got to be good because the third light works in on the cab. Ill look at the trailer plug wiring it is oem though but ill check it out when I dont half to lay in ice water.
