    Tail Lights are working Intermittently

    One possibility is your wiring loom. The insulation is notorious for degrading. I had to replace mine, PITA job, and not cheap. If you can remove the tail light start looking at the loom there, follow it back a bit underneath the plastic trim, the trim pops off with a bit of gentle persuasion.
