To be honest, I do not have a clue why the tailight is out, I'm just trying to help you figure it out from my end of the world
I would never think you're trying to sound smarky or anything because you're just trying to get your lights fixed.
sometimes one bad socket can cause the other 2 sockets to shot down for safety reason, but I'm not 100% sure if that's possible. that's just something that I would do if I had the same problem.
but before going out and buying new sockets
it is best to check if all sockets are actually getting power. you can test each socket using a multi-meter.
if they're all getting power, make sure all light bulbs are good too.
if all sockets are getting power, all light bulbs are good, and still no power from that tail light, then I don't know, I would have to think of something else or take it somewhere and let them figure it out.
the main question is, are those light bulbs getting power?
probably not, and that's why they're not working
or is one light bulb bad causing the other two not to work?
not lilkely...but its worth to try
is the fuse good?
I don't know
it could be something simple or it could be something complicated
Does anyone else have more ideas?
