3rd brake light

My 3rd brake light on my 2015 Vista is not working. All the other Laramie lights work. Any ideas where to look to fix this problem?

got it. well, an led can burn out just like a bulb..not as often but it happens. beyond that...maybe a bad ground? can you measure voltage going into the led housing?

Chris,
Your third brake light is commonly referred to as, "CHMSL" or, Chassi, High Mount Stop Light. It is on a seperate circuit from your brake light circuit. It is triggered independently of that brake light circuit also. And there are separate wires and a potential relay for it also.

So, I'd first look into they fuse panel for all 12V chassis systems (some coaches have different fuse panels for different sections of the coach). Find the one for the third (CHMSL) and see if you're getting juice to it and from it. If you are, then I'd head for the LED bulb and see if you're getting juice to that fixture. If so, your LED is OUT! If you're not getting juice to that fixture, you've got a break-down some place in between your fuse for it and, the fixture itself. Let us know what you find.
Scott

Well,
Must have got them fixed since there's been no return here to advise any different.
