Do all the other exterior lights operate properly?Can you have an assistant place the vehicle in reverse with the lights on to see what they Do? Then can you have them activate the left turn signal and see if that causes any issues?Can you send me a picture of both the tail lights when the problem is happening?

I can, but it'll probably have to be tomorrow. I don't have access to the car right now; however, I don't think there's any issue with the turn signal, and I'm not getting any messages on the instrument panel. The bulb blew out on the other side recently and I got the message that it was out.
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 7 months ago
Ok get back to me when you can.
