Question about 2005 Ford Freestar
First eliminate the possibility that you have the wrong bulb in the wrong socket. it sounds dumb but going way back to 1157 bulbs there have been two rear tail light bulbs which will fit into the same socket but are electrically different. If you have ever driven down the road following a car which had one bright and one dim tail light, or brake light, then you have seen this in action.
since you have one good tail light assembly remove the bulbs, taking great care not to mix them up and make sure the bulbs are exactly same as in the non working assembly. i mean you have to look closely at the bulb's connection points as they will look very much the same.
if the bulbs are correct then you are looking at buying a new socket, or light assembly if the whole thing is wired into the car.
