My tailgate brake light is out. Does anyone know what size bulb it uses. See picture for reference. Thanks for any help.

Isn't that a LED assembly? Have you asked the dealer about a warranty replacement?
Not sure, I just noticed it tonight or a buddy of mine noticed it who was following me. Haven't really looked at it yet. I'll definitely give the dealership a call in the AM

Anyone got any idea why it would already be out. I would think it being led would make it last significantly longer. Just don't want to fly blind about the situation at the dealership. I'll be setting up a appointment today. I'm not real concerned with it being out other than my OCD it kickin' pretty good about it

Do you have a Tazer installed? Could be any number of things. Defective assembly, wiring problem inside the tailgate, damaged wiring underneath the bed, computer issue, rodent damage...

I got JScan but it hasn't done anything to it yet. They did flash it for Leds two weeks ago at the dealership for free to turn the turn signal out warning message off, they also did a powertrain PCM update on the computer. I looked this morning and now one side of the light is worki g and the other isn't. I didn't know it could go out like that. Seems like it could just be a bad unit.

Based on that, I would guess defective assembly. Take a picture to show the dealer. Might save some time if it completely goes out before you get it in to be looked at.
