    I have a 2010 silverado. I just tried to replace the stock bulbs for the cargo lamps on my third brake light with LED bulbs. Not only did the LED's not work but when I went to put back the orginal bulbs in, they didn't work either. The brake light works but does not come on when it gets dark out and my lights come on. How do i fix this? Thank you

    I am showing no power at the third brake light with a meter but I checked all of the fuses and all show that they are good with a 12v tester. Which fuse on yours blew?

    i had the same problem i had to take mine to the dealer and they just told me it was a fuse problem. but i looked at all of my fuses and checked it with a light tester and could not find anything. but after i got the truck back i installed those Load Equalizer and everything worked great after that.
