Rear Tail light/brake light/turn signal issues

My right rear brake light and turn signal doesnt work. I have replaced all the bulbs in that tail light last night and still had the same outcome. All my other brake lights work and all my other turn signals work(and hazards wont work either on this right rear). The running light is on when I turn on the headlights but the turn signal and brake light will not function. What can be wrong? and what should I do? is it a bad ground or what? Thank you!


94 S-10 Ext. Cab 4.3l auto lifted 2in. in the rear. Magnaflow hi-flow Cat and a 3in. CherryBomb Extreme turned down.

i would check the ground, I removed my bed and ripped the ground wire out one time and my lights did exactly what you are describing

That same thing happened to mine. It was to conector in the wiring harness above the spare tire.

Good Luck!

There is a ground on each side inside the frame, near where the bumper bolts up. The is a black plug looking connected w a green bottom and that plug should have a single ground wire coming off of it
