Have you checked the bulb socket real good? With age they tend to get greenish corrosion on the bulb contact points and in the wire harness connections. Might have to just check the wire itself going to the socket or harness connection to see if it is a socket or harness connection issue. Check for power and ground.

I answered your earlier post here: http://www.cargurus.com/Cars/Discussion-d1610_ds604385? actionMessage Make CERTAIN you are getting one break light but not the other and both turn signals work! If so then I am afraid you need to replace the turn signal switch on the steering column. I know this is counter-intuitive. See the other thread for an explanation on why.
