Question Left brake light on the fritz.

Hi all

My left brake light went out today, I discovered this because my "lamp out" light came on. Replaced the bulb and the notification stopped - now it came back on and I find the same brake light bulb which I replaced is out again....barely an hour later.

Thoughts?

Thanks!

This my friend is a fuse box, the fuses control all different kinds of electronics for your truck. Not 100% about this as I am a novice myself. However you can find it in the engine compartment near the grille on the driver side (in a 2010 ram --not sure about yours.) heres a picture of my fuse box. Should be a decent sized black box with a cover that you can pop open. Essentially my idea is one of these little guys (fuses) went bad
