My recently purchased accent has a strange brake light problem.

With the running lights off:

when I depress the brake pedal all three brake lights come on but the passenger brake light is quite dim compared to the drivers side light. The middle brake light is bright.

With the running lights on:

Both running lights are on. When I depress the brake pedal, the drivers side brake light comes on and is bright. The passenger side brake light does not come on and the passenger side running light goes off so that there is no light coming from the passenger side.

Any ideas what might be going on? I just joined this forum and am impressed with how much inforrmation is available here.

I was shocked to discover the problem was with the bulb. Even though the bulb showed continuity with an ohm meter on both leads, when I switched the drivers and passenger side bulbs the behavior moved to the drivers side. I guess it was a short within the bulb... weird!
