Unless things have changed greatly the most possible answer is a lack of earthing, cars etc electrics mainly rely on a positive feed via cables with a return through its chassis or body.
When this fails all manner of weird effects can happen because this positive feed unable to return in a normal way tries other less direct routes via other circuits and creates problems.
I would examine that defective light cluster for bad contacts from those bulbs metal case to earth possibly a black wire to a chassis screw fixing.
Another fun place is some light clusters have a metal reflector or conductive layer which acts as a link to this earthing, corrosion can exist at screw fixings or in bayonet fixed lamps they can have folded or crimped sockets to metal/reflector which corrosion can occur all around this point, from condensation forming then rusting this area.
I would after checking take a long wire with one end fixed to the chassis as an earth touch its other bared end to your defective lamps metal case (or ground lead) to see if it works OK (Not its centre or live pin).
If it works then look for a bad earth connection, if not then you will need to use a voltmeter to confirm that power is getting to the bulbs centre pin or positive feed.
In most cases I have endured it will most always leads back to earthing issues in older cars.
Hope this helps.........

No brake, turn signal, or flashers at rear of 2006 chevy express 2500


Sounds like a bad turn signal switch. I bet if you wiggle the turn signal lever while you have your foot on the brake pedal the left and right brake lights ill intermittently work.

1994 Chevy C1500 truck. No rear brake lights


Most likely this is a brake light switch issue. Replace switch.

If your emergency flashers don't work, all flasher bulbs are fine, but flashing too fast, then check and replace Hazard light switch.

1995 Dodge Dakota signal light and brake lights quit


I had the same problem that the brake light / turn signal on the right side didn't work (in the 2006 Dodge Caravan it's the same bulb). After a long search I found the problem: There was corrosion on the contact of the bulb assembly. After scraping off the corrosion everything works now.

No passenger side brake light. right flasher module going bad .


Check the rear bulb socket. You might even try wiggling the wires on the back of the socket while you have the signal on.
