Left rear brake lamp is inoperative periodically. I've replaced the bulb 3 times in the past but this time the light would not work. The last bulb was partially melted at contacts. Not covered by recall - I am paying for socket replacement. Don't know if this is a chronic problem.

Canyon 5-cyl

  • miles
To whom it may concern, I purchased my 2007 GMC Canyon in February 2007 with trailer harness as standard equipment at fresard GMC. I actually almost caused an accident due to all my brake lights not working. I called GMC to report this incident due to internet research on recall for brake light failure. The rep tried to deny recall but I explained to her about recall. She located closest dealer which was red holman GMC for recall on brake light failure but they are trying to charge me $300 for new trailer harness plus additional labor cost. The dealership is stating that water got into my trailer harness which caused all the lights to stop working. I have not used the trailer and learned it was incorrectly installed at the factory. Can you please assist me with this problem because this is my primary transportation? [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

I noticed that the cruise control wasn't working. I checked the fuse. It was good. A week later, my wife was following my vehicle and noticed that I had no brake lights.
