Have you checked the bulbs on the left? They could be bad and the cause of the fuse blowing.

Sorry for any inconvenience but I will be out of town and will not have any internet access. I will release your question so another tech can help.

Hello and welcome to just answer. I value your input to my questions so I may help you better. I read your noted what you had already done and see you have no power to the left tail light is that right? Also that the tail light fuse was replaced?All other rear lights work?

Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 9 months ago.

I will send you a wiring diagram of your tail lights to help, but sounds like you have two options (1) to trace the wiring from that left side back into the cab and see where your loosing the power to it . Or you can run a jumper wire from the right tail light to the left one . Being that age of truck you may have some corrosion at connectors such as the one coming in the cab frome the rear under the vehicle. Look along the wiring from the back forwards for any fraying or touching body parts.
