You can try cleaning them. Use a portable drill with a very small drill bit installed. Get some fine steel wool then wrap a small amount of the steel wool around the end of the drill bit. Turn the drill motor on slowly and the steel wool will adhere to the drill bit and look like a "Q-tip". Spin this inside the tail light connectors to clean them up. Vaccuum out the steel wool chad and try your lights again. Usually works on sockets that are not too far gone.

i will try clean some of them up as i have 6 in the back but the wires inside are loose or something. I will let you know, will most likely order one pair like as test pair to help trace down my short. It could just be the sockets. thanks
