DISCONNECT BATTERY 1st !!! Sounds like the socket itself might be bad...... but 1st try prying the copper connectors out from the sides a little. Might be bad contact.....?

You Might not want to try this, but I would ....... Cut the wires and switch -R to L- tail lites ! See what happens? Let me know!

don't do any of that! For those of you who face this exact problem, I found a blown fuse in the fuse panel in my cab of the truck. Number 5, a 10amp fuse I believe. Once replacing that fuse, the problem continued. I then checked my fuse box under my hood and found another 10 amp blown fuse. When I replaced that fuse, everything worked fine. Don't cut wires or splice and follow leads until you have checked ALL fuses! Good luck!

I have a 98 s10. Checked ALL the fuses. I have it narrowed down to the brown wire has no power but turn and brake light work.
