dissimlar metal contacts re. tailight sockets and type 3157 bulbs. brake/turn/emergency flasher signal lights fail to light intermittently (both sides). (dashboard flasher lights indicate normal operation.) twice replaced bulbs, but with later failure it was noted that moving unlit bulb or wiggling it causes it to work. inspecting bulb shows corrosion/arcing at contact point(s). i now carry an emory board to clean corrosion from contact points when failure noted/reported. (3-7 mos mtbf) i intend to report this to the underwriters lab and to "sylvania" as an incompatibility/design electrical defect.

Location:
Topeka, KS

at any given time, one of my three brake lights is not working. there does not seem to be any reason as the same light that was previously not working will work while a different one will be out without any work being done on the car to try to remedy the problem. some times, only one light is working or none of them are working. this is an ongoing problem. in addition, the transmission leaks fluid on a regular basis. i have had my personal mechanic to refill the transmission at least twice after less than 3,000 miles and had hoses checked to make sure there were no apparent leaks. none were found. the last time the transmission was filled was at the end of may and it is jerking really hard again after it was refilled less than two months ago. that does not appear normal to me.*jb
