Good afternoon and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.

I have attached the wiring diagram.. Have you checked fuse 10? Do you have voltage to the light? If you swap the left and right taillights does it work in the other side?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I did try that earlier nothing happened on the right side it work
Only the left side did not work I also bought new bulbs and still no lights on the left side of the car no taillights and no front marker light
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I am going to check and look for the number 10 fuel rows up on the D hood
Expert:  Brad replied 8 months ago.

Did you plug in the left side taillight in the right side to see if you have a taillight issue?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Did you me D wireing harness if so no
I only change the bulbs
Expert:  Brad replied 8 months ago.

I have no idea what this means: Did you me D wireing harness if so no

I would swap the two tailights and see if the left side works in the right side.. If no then you have a bad tailight..

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Sorry did you want me to change the wiring harness from right to left in the tail light housing
Expert:  Brad replied 8 months ago.

NO just disconnect the taillight and plug it in on the right side.. It's a quick test to see if you have a bad tailight.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I changed right side to the left no changed right side is working no change in situation
The left side nothing
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I was able to plug the whole left light into the right side
The left side light work on the right side right side did not work on the left side
There is no taillights on the left side or front marker working
Expert:  Brad replied 8 months ago.

Ok thanks! if the left taillight worked in the right side then you do have a voltage issue and the taillight is ok,. Did you check fuse 10?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
