Have you tried swapping the bulb from the other side see if that works If not check for power and ground at the tail lamp circuit that is inoperative. Also take a good look at the connector(s) make sure there is no corrosion in the terminals.
Power is supplied to the instrument illumination by the "TAIL/ILLUM LIGHT" fuse, Fuse #4 (15 Amp) located in the dash fuse block under the left side of the dash. This fuse provides power for both the primary and secondary sides of the TAIL LIGHT relay. The Combination (Headlamp) switch provides a ground path for the primary circuit of the TAIL LIGHT relay. When the primary circuit is completed by the Combination switch, the secondary contacts close and provide power to the tail lamps as well as to all of the instrument illumination bulbs. The ground for the instrument illumination bulbs is a variable-resistance circuit which is controlled by the illumination controller. The final ground for both the combination switch and the illumination controller is Ground G302, located under the center console.
You may be looking at a fuse issue, possibly a blown one for the dash lights. As far as the tail light on the drivers side, I would check the bulb. They have two elements in the bulb, one for the tail light and the other is for the brake light. So one may be intact, do not let that fool you.
It may sound silly, but check your brake light bulbs to see if they have been installed incorrectly. Brake light bulbs have two filaments, one for tail light, and a brighter one for brake lights. On some cars if the bulb is installed wrong, the brighter filament will stay on for tail lights. The only other thing I can think of is the wrong bulbs have been installed.
The internal panel lights work off the left hand side of the side lights and are protected by the 10 amp fuse for this side. I had replaced both stop and tail lights with a heavy duty bulbs and because the left hand side powers the panel lights as well, obviously it was too much for the circuit. The right hand side was okay.
Do you know if the brake light bulbs are working? (are the bulbs good?). (the bulbs have two parts, one for brake lights the other for running lights) If the third brake light bulb is working the brake lights should be with good light bulbs.
