Left side no brake or turn signal lights Help

Check the bulbs everything is okay. I put the left bulb on the right side and they work. PUt new bulbs and still not working. I don't have any left turn and brake light on the left and one light (inner light) on the right is not working. The car was driven in the rain once and the left brake and turn signal light left stoppped working after that.

When I turn on the parking light all lights work.

your sjb needs some attention. its in the passenger side foot well. likely corrosion has caused this issue. IIRC the inner lights don't light up or work with light turn on or brakes.

To restate more clearly, part of what bl817 has stated:

There are a total of 6 bulbs within tailamp/stop lamp housings.

All those bulbs have two filaments each.

The two most inner bulbs are used only for running lights. There is no wiring to their second filament, therefore not allowing them to be used for brake/turn signals.

Ford did something very odd here...using two filament bulbs yet no power to second filament. No one seems to know what their thinking was.
