Default light problem, help

Hello,

last week my back light stopped working but when i pressed the brakes the break lights still turned on so the bulbs couldn't be bad. What do you think happened? i'm talking about about driving at night, just to clarify. thanks

Yes the bulbs can be bad, they are dual filament. One filament is for the brake light, the other is for the parking light. Take the bulbs out and examine them, you may be able to see the broken filaments.
Also make sure the front parking lights are working, if they are out as well check your fuses.

Thanks.

That helped me too. My brake light was out but my parking light would be on.
