    The problem is the ground circuit to the right rear light assembly. Fix the ground and you have fixed the problem!

    Sure thing! I don't have the schematic here but later one of the tecs that does can tell you exactly which wire is the ground so you know where to go! Then you can simply ground that wire with a jumper and the lights should start working. Don't know your skill level, you may or may not need some hands-on help from that car savvy buddy!
