[Help/advice] Right Rear brake light problem - Mercedes SLK R170 230K
I live in Holland and I'm a big fan of the show, for about half a year now I own a Mercedes SLK R170 230K (the one on the header is mine). Recently an issue with only the right brake light has occurred. I was wondering if anyone could give me a pointer.
When I hit the brake the left and center brake light work, however the right brake light doesn't.
I first replaced the light but that didn't fix the issue. Then I took off the lamp unit and checked it for corrosion of which there was none. So I decided to do some measurements. When I manually plug the unit into 12 volt it works just fine. However when checking if the connector supplies power when I tap the brake, I found out, the car is just not providing power to the brake light wires on the connector going to the lamp unit.
I also checked the fuse and replaced it just to be sure. I'm kinda out of ideas of what to do next and figured maybe anyone would give me a hint.
I'm currently thinking a broken cable, (I've never touched them before so I don't expect this to be the case) or maybe the breaklightswitch? this would be weird since the other brake lights do work.
