Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
This is the second time this has happened. I have checked the fuses and the bulbs everything is fine with those items. The last time it happened the auto worker advised the bulb was laying on the computer board.
Pull the bulb out and look to see if the contacts are burnt. All of these trucks have this problem. You can replace the bulb, put some die electrice grease on it and bend the contacts back out, some times you will need to clean it also. Or you can spend the money and get a new socket, But that will cost money.

There are a few things it cold be. Moisture cold be getting in it, if the vehicle has been in a wreck a wire could have gotten pinched and i have seen people back there watercraft into the lake and not unplug there connector and it shorten there lights out. I know it will take time but get a creeper and trace your wires down lookin for frails , they should be in a cluster running from the back of passenger side rear, across to back drivers side then down the frame. Make sure your rear light is sealed and has no space for moisture to get in. I have seen alot of aftermarket lights let moisture in. If that doesnt work check your fuses and if thats not it then check your turn signal switch that is inside your steering column, thats what i found to be wrong with my wifes 87 ford bronco ll after i ruled out all the other things got ruled out. Good Luck and i hope I was helpfull. I know it can be frustrating.
