Replace the non-working tail light bulb. Try replacing the bulbs for the turn signals. If that doesn't work, replace the relay.

It could be that your brake light switch, located right behind the upper part of your brake peddle, has a short or is no good anymore. Check the wires for cracks, breaks or exposure also

SOURCE: no tail lights
You should have a fuse panel under you dash inside. This is where the fuses are located for lights. Don't know the exact location, but you can pull each fuse to see if it is bad. This won't hurt anything. It just keeps you from hunting down a diagram of where the fuse is located.

the bit which the bulb sits in might be faulty, only saying this, because I have had same issue with my car.

Did you check for power at the bulb itself? Take a test light and go
from power inside the bulb socket to ground. If you have a good strong
light, then I would start looking for a bad ground wire.
Problems of this nature are almost always associated with a poor ground connection.
Grounds at the tail lights are usually very poor, bad enough so that the common fix is to tap the metal housing with a sheet metal screw, and run a ground strap from there to a clean spot on the frame. On badly rusted trucks, I have run a ground strap clear up to the battery to insure a good connection.
Grounds can also be bad at the front lamp sockets, you should check power to the bulbs first (both in park lamp mode and in turn signal mode) to insure a good source of power, then clean the grounds.
