My driver side tail and break lights went off last night. I assume there is a short in the sockets as I see burned and melted plastic but the fuse did not blow. Can't find the light sockets to replace them. HELP

If you go to eBay motors and enter your vehicle details, you can probably find your sockets there (I'm looking for a few things myself, and saw those come up first when I did a sort by price, ascending.)

I just went through and changed rear lamps on our 2005 Verona a few weeks ago, and I recall that they were all pretty standard 1156/1157 or 2356/2357 bulbs, which should make finding the sockets pretty easy. You'll just have to splice them in, which only takes a few minuets anyhow.

HTH, YMMV, TANSTAAFL.

Thanks! I found the parts and ordered them. Are the top two bulbs 1157? that's what I put in and then this problem started. Its a shame this car has soooo much planned obsolesce because its hard to find another car that 1 - has the turning radius and 2 has the room for the driver and passenger. and really back seat too. All of the plastic on y 2005 is starting to just fall off the car.

I believe so, but don't hold me to it. The difference between 1156 & 2356 (and 1157/2357) is that the 2356/2357 bulbs are somewhat brighter.

The difference between 1156/2356 and 1157/2357 is that the former are single-filament bulbs, the latter are dual-filament. This is readily apparent by examining the bottom end of the bulb - the 1156/2356 will have a single "button" on the very bottom and the retaining lugs will be even with each other, the 1157/2357 will have two "buttons" on the bottom, and the lugs will be offset from each other.

Well...no love...first the socket don't seem to be correct...the wires are not copper they are silver and they have 4 lugs instead of 3. I shaved one of the lugs off so I could at least see if the sockets had something to do with the problem. NO. same issue...I have brake lights but no tail lights when the headlights are turned on. I am assuming the single green wire on the original socket is the ground wire. there is some type of junction where the wires for the sockets originate. do you think that could be shorted? I could not figure out how to release it from the bracket or detach the wires. I will post pictures of it.

Curious.

For the colour issue - it is relatively common to use "tinned" (tin-plated copper) wiring in automotive applications, which will give a silver exterior colour to the conductor (vice cheap Chinese wire being CCA - copper-clad aluminum - which will /look/ like copper wire, but will be "silver" at the core when it is cut.)

Pictures would help, tho - I don't have my manual to hand (I probably need to get another one - long story...) and I'm not as familiar with the internals of this vehicle as I am with AMC and Jeep...

went to take the pic and figured out how to disconnect. There is a push-in release on the bottom of this...the connector didn't have any burns or melting ...whats my next step..take the trunk apart to see where the wires come from?

Did you happen to take a picture of the bulb socket end? It is common for field replacement lamp sockets to be supplied unterminated - you'd splice your OEM plug onto the stripped wires for the replacement socket.
