The problem with your tail light is the housing is broken where the socket goes in. If you pull that socket out and look you will see the metal tap will be pushed down and the plastic around that will be broke. Easy fix is to replace the lens but you can get under the metal tap with a small flat tip screw driver and pull up on it very lightly and it should work for awhile.
Hope this helps

I have the same problem and it is the switch... I ran a wire from my back window light to my brake lights and it works great. saved 600.00 bucks and only took 20 min Danny

Sounds like the brake light switch has a problem. Located above brake pedal and activated with the brake pedal arm. Check for power going in and coming out when you apply the brake.

Hazard light switch... They all intermingle in operation.
My ex wifes 96TC was doing the same thing... I could OCCASIONALLY get the hazards to work by turning the hazard switch on/off like 10 times in a row and suddenly it would fix... finally bought a new switch

Testimonial: "Will try your advice, not sure were the hazard switch is (owners manual missing) so I'll call around. thanks, awa prompt."
I dont have a diagram but the brake light switch has to feed the turn signal switch, Either that wire has a bad connection, or the turn signal switch is bad. Jiggle the turn signal lever and see if the brake lights try to work.
