It sounds like you may be having an issue with the wiring to the rear lights of your vehicle. I would recommend having a qualified professional inspect the wiring that controls the rear lights of your vehicle. This may include the use of a wiring diagram and a digital multimeter. Consider YourMechanic for this inspection as it can be completed at your home or office.
