if you have the diagram,have a look for a ground problem.ground the assembly to the side that works.the other thing to do if you have a test light is check that there is 12 volts on off on the signal on one bulb pin and steady 12v on the run and stop lights.that means there is an open ground......

Could you take out a bulb and with a testlight/probe check that you do in fact have power to that circuit .Also check that they are the correct bulb for that application I have seen people put indicator bulbs in where therse supposed to be a double filament bulb.Does the base of the bulbs lead contacts line up with the two steel terminals inside the plug?

THERE SHOULD BE SEPARATE FUSES FOR THE TRAILER WIRES. HAVE YOU LOOKED UNDER THE STEERING COLUMN FOR THEM? IF YOU HAVE AND THEY CHECK OUT OKAY, THEN CHECK THE WHITE WIRE ON THE TRAILER PLUG, IT IS THE ONE THAT IS EXPOSED ON THE TRAILER PLUG. IT IS THE GROUND FOR ALL THE TRAILER LIGHTS AND THE MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL THE WIRES. SEE IF THE TRAILER HAS A GOOD CLEAN GROUND AS WELL(WHITE WIRE). HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK

sometimes a bad ground can cause this. when the other lights are not being used the brake light can backfeed through another bulb to get a ground.
