Hello my name is ***** ***** me look for some information for you, give me a few minutes.

This truck uses a smart junction box fuse panel, what that means if there is a short circuit it has the ability to interupt the circuit until a repair has been made. The smart junction box should have a self test done to see if there are circuit codes stored. I would try replacing the bulb, then disconnecting the battery for 15 minutes to try and clear any codes that are stored, if it still doesn't work, a test on the smart junction box with a scan tool will be needed. It could also be a broken wire in between the cab to the left rear brake light. I would try disconnecting the battery first and see what happens. Let me know what you find, thanks Scott
