Customer: replied 4 years ago.
going by the wiring the problem could be at the junction or plug in trunk, if the center light works it canot b the switch ???
Expert:  HondaPlatinum replied 4 years ago.
It all gets grounded throught the switch its still possible but I would check the wiring First.see circuit #705 this comes from a juction block located it the left piller(white junction connector) check this connector for a broken or corroded wire ,check the white/black wire on both sides of this connector for 12 volts with the brake pedal on,also check the red/blue wire.The connector is on the drivers side near the rear seat belt side panel ,you might have to get the seat out of the way,you can trace or follow the wiring from the left rear tail light also to check if there is a broken wire.
