This is a sign of potentially bad or worn wheel bearings. When wheel bearings wear out or become damaged due to dirt or debris or lack of proper lubrication, they will cause this type of vibration which is more noticeable usually upon slowing down or when any kind of force is exerted on that particular wheel, for example when making a turn. If you would like to have this checked by another mechanic, an expert from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose the vibration and guide your through repairs.

Q: Brake light problem

You mention "right" brake light as functioning, at least momentarily, but nothing about the light on the "left". If the right light functions momentarily, but only after replacing the fuse, there is probably a faulty or intermittent connection in that...
