Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. I see that buying a bulb didn't work. I'm suspecting that the socket for the bulb may be bad. Give me a few moments in order to pull up the vehicle and assist you better.

I switched the left taillight. Assembly with the right side assembly. The right side, it still didn't work. I later changed the brake pedal switch, still have the problem.

Good morning. I reviewed your issue last night and I see that your lights operate on separate circuits. Looks like you have just a couple of places that could cause this issue. I will send you the diagram so that you can have a visual.

Expert:  Todd M replied 7 months ago.

Here you are... If you can see, your tail light assemblies run on separate circuits directly to the BCM. You could have a connection issue on this side. Also, the common ground closest to the tail light assembly in question.

Expert:  Todd M replied 7 months ago.

I would suggest testing the connection from the BCM to the tail light assembly and also I would check the ground to the tail light assembly.
