Hi There, I'm Clayso a certified master automobile technician with 30 years of automotive repair and diagnostic experience.

From your description I'd start with a tail lamp assembly of course, moisture and electricity and never a good combination. With a test lamp monitor the dark green/white wire from the multi-function switch, if the circuit fails at the test lamp the same as when the rear lamps fail the multi-function switch is at fault. The multi-function switch is a common failure for this and many other problems. If you need connector views and diagrams let me know.

I hope this information is helpful. If you have any questions let me know. You can reply back to me through this thread at any time.

Kindly rate my assistance in a positive manner so I may have credit for helping you.
