    I don't know how comfortable you are at reading wiring diagrams and if you have a volt/ohm meter, but I would suggest tracing a wiring diagram checking for power at the rear tail light socket to see if it is a wiring bulb or socket issue. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info. There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
    Alldata is the best, look under diagnosis and repair-diagrams-electrical-lights
