I have a 2000 Isuzu Rodeo and had the same problem. On the 2000, there are 2 screws on the side of the light assembly and 1 at the bottom the need to be removed. I found I needed a longer philips screwdriver for the bottom screw as there is not much room. Once you remove the screws, pull straight back on the unit. There are 2 plastic pins that are about 3/4" that will pop out of their socket when you pull straight back. Then, just lift the unit out and replace the bulb.
Hi cjryan 9876 when you look on the outside of the lens there are 2 philips head screws & if open your tail gate there are another 2 philips head screws in there as well one of which is located through the locking tab for the tailgate once you undo these the tail light should fall out & then to get the tail light out of the socket give it a quarter turn anti clock wise

possibally a short and the most common area to cop a hard life is if it has a trailer plug check the condition of the wires and that they are secured properly . if ever thing is ok there check the rear tail light bulbs for defects as well. but your lookin for a short in the system so if you have altered any thing in the electrical system a quick check over that as well. rear earthing to tail lights should be checked as well
The easiest way is to open back trunk open any coverings or carpet pull it back to gain access to the bulb socket once you see the socket twist it counter clock wise and remove remove the bulb and replace with new one once installed have someone step on your brake pedal to confirm working then put upholstery back and you =have completed changing your brake light bulb.
On the left hand side of the truck, there are two screws that hold the light assembly in place. Unscrew them and slowly pull the light assembly straight back. Then you can access the light bulbs from there.
