my left tail light bulb is drivin me crazyo
it has 2 filaments. its giving me 2 choices. i can have the light on but no turn/brake light. or i can have no light but turn/brake light works. it depends on how i put the light in the socket. also... i have to wiggle the reverse light alot because it goes out. any help on how i can drive without having to wiggle the lights and what up with the left tail light. i know the bottom of the bulb has 2 "contacts?" on it and the reverse bulbs have 1 knob on the bottom.
thanks for any help!

Booo.
Snap the bulb in the way it's meant to go in. One tab is higher than the other. Touch a piece of wire to the bulb base, right next to where it meets the glass. Touch the other end to a good ground. See if the bulb responds like it should. Poor bulb grounds do strange things.
