Guessed it's a V6. Trying to sort this out. If setting the headlamp switch to PARK turns on the park filaments of the front park/turn signal lamp and the tail filaments of the rear tail/stop lamps and the separate tail lamps, the park light circuit is good. If 20A fuse 6 in the power distribution center is OK, the combination flasher in the multifunction switch is receiving power. Power is directed to the turn signal lamps by operation of the turn signal/hazard warning switch. If the turn signals are not flashing, the combination switch may have failed or the turn signal flasher part of the combination flasher may have failed. Finally, the hazard warning switch causes the turn signal elements of the front combination park/turn signal lamps and the rear turn lamps to flash.
Over time corrosion can accumulated and rust out a tail light socket and render it non-functioning. Yes it can be replaced and in your case for about $6.00. You can find these at most any auto parts store.

there is a fuse in the fuse panel for the tail lights.check this out first as the tail lights are on a separate circuit from the other lights in the back.fuse panel is under the dash on the drivers side.there is also one under the hood.if the fuse is good its possible that there is a problem with the headlight switch on the tail light circuit side of the switch.if this is okay then its possible that there is a wiring problem from the switch to the tail lights but this rarely happens.
Try replacing the passenger side tail light bulb.
Inside trunk, remove two black plastic nuts holding carpet liner in place on side where bulb is burnt out. Pull back carpet, use a flat screwdriver to pop out the wiring. Remove three nuts using a small open-ended socket or pliers. Pop out entire tail light assembly. Locate bulb to be replaced. Rotate 1/4 turn to remove from socket. Replace bulb and repeat in reverse order to reinstall. Thank you for using fixya and good luck
