You will need a few tools and, of course, the replacement tail light bulbs. Obviously, the exact removal and installation procedure will vary by vehicle, as well as by year model, but the variances are not very great. You can easily determine which type you have, simply by looking at your vehicle.
There are two main types of replacement tail lights; those that you can access externally and those that you have to access from inside the trunk or cargo area. The majority of modern vehicles fall into the latter class. However, if you need to, many lighting assemblies can be removed from the exterior, simply by removing the mounting screws.
• Flathead screwdriver and Phillips head screwdriver (There is also a possibility the manufacturer may have used a “star” type screw or 8 or 10 mm nut to secure the light assembly)
• Replacement bulbs
1. Locate the access panel inside the trunk/cargo area by opening the trunk/tailgate, the panel should be right behind the light. To access your light assembly, remove the cover. (Most covers have a simple twist lock, though some use a tension lock.) Twist the lock counterclockwise or pull back on the tension lock. The access panel will swing open or come off and you can then remove the light assembly using the tools mentioned above. Be sure to not to stretch or pull on the wiring harness. Remove the wire connector if needed.
2. Locate the blown bulb and twist the connector counterclockwise.
3. Remove the bulb from the connector and insert the new bulb.
4. Repeat steps in reverse order to reinstall.
That should do it!

get yourself a cheap multimeter from a store like radio shack etc. with someone pressing the brake check at the socket to see if you have any power. remember it is DC volts not AC.. if you dont have any power check the grounds, there are a few, under the truck, and under the hood by the engine,if that doesn't work, you can try popping the rear covers off at the back and you might have loose wires, give a light tug on the wires and see if any pull away from the body.... look close at the bulb plug, you can also have a loose wire there or a broken ground tab... hopfully this can help you... if you have any more of a problem let me know...
