I have a 2007 Ridgeline RTL which I bought new and now has over 200,000 miles.
My passenger side break light went out so I purchased a new one 4773.
When my lights are off the break light works although the passenger side light is not as bright.
When my lights are on my passenger side brake light doesn't work but all other lights are fine.
Has anyone had this problem and can anyone please help me?

The bulb is a type CK 7443. It's a dual filament. Sounds like you have it in backwards so the brighter filament is on with your tail lights. The other filament connected to your turn circuit would hardly be noticeable. Try just flipping the bulb around in the socket/

A 7443 bulb is polarity insensitive. One filament is connected the center pins and the other filament is connected to the outer pins so it works the same regardless of which way it is inserted.

My first suspicion is a faulty ground.

In another post a person was having trouble with their electrics. There's a fairly major ground point under the bed lining on the drivers side. Looked pretty easy to get to and might be a place to check.

I hope this works:
This is a pretty good troubleshooting thread.
