    Rear passenger brake light not working. Malfunction triggered when going through a car wash. Bulb was good but replaced anyway, no luck. Could the taillight bulb carrier be shorted? Could it be a fuse, Does a Single fuse cover one brake light? The other rear lights all work without issue.

    Both male and female plug pins look good. No melting or discoloring.
