My position, brake, and turn signal light are not working. I replaced the bulbs and they still are not working.

All the right side lights ARE working, as is the left hand side reverse light.

The three non-working lights and some of the right hand side lights track back to a green relay in the trunk. The relay looked good upon inspection and should be good since the right side lights are working.

I'm beginning to think it's something in the harness between the relay and the lights?

Has anybody been down this road before?

no one responded but i fixed it myself.

I pulled out the rear light assembly and disconnected it from the wiring harness. Looking at the connector (to the harness) I saw that one of the lines had shorted out and destroyed one of the pins (of 4) on the connector.

So I ran a piece of heavy wire from before the connector, around and bypassing the connector, and to the other wire. The 3 wires that were damaged remained.

All you need is a wire stripper, some wire, pliers, solder, soldering iron, and some flux. Took me 15 minutes.

NOTE: unplug the battery when you do this.
