You may have gotten a bad bulb (does happen).

Also, you might want to get some 800 grit sandpaper and sand down the contacts a little, that the bulb plugs into, before putting in the replacement bulb.

Is the bulb anything special or something you can pick up at Autozone?

I assume by center brake light you're referencing the third brake light, the LED strip in the center between the tail lights?

If so, as that is a strip of LEDs and not a bulb(s), I would check my lighting circuit fuses to ensure nothing else had failed, and probe the connector after disconnecting the brake light to look for the ~12V it should see when illuminated. Too much current to the light *should* have blown a fuse, and if the voltage is consistently too high you should be able to be measure that easily at the connector. Either of those things would indicate the problem is elsewhere in the car and not the brake light itself. I suspect though, you've just gotten a bad part.

04-05 cars have a brake light mounted at the top of the rear window. Kinda odd to me and sometimes you see cars with a wing and two brake lights, one in the wing and one above rear window. And yes, they are led which is strange how yours fully blew. Typically, LEDs donít just burn out like that but sometimes one individual led inside can go bad.

If you need another, I have in stock. Call or text 717-319-2100.
