can you check and see if the 2 fuses called taillamps/lic lamps a 15 amp fuse and the 7.5 amp fuse called panel dimmer are BOTH not blown located in the passenger door oepning like this picture

the odds are one or both are blown causing this issue

once replaced the lights should work fine

if you have any questions please ask as i do not get credit for my work until you rate me here at Justanswer

Both of those fuses are O.K., not blown. I had a new 15amp fuse that I used to replace the one that was there just in case and still the problem exists. I didn't have a 7.5amp but the one that was there did not look blown.
