My 4 Runner has a right side tail light that is out. It is only out when the vehicle is running. If we activate the alarm the light flashes as it should. Is this a major electrical issue that is creeping up or something that could be repaired by me, a fairly descent mechanic?

A light circuit should not be anything major.

From the symtom description, I would suspect a loose/broken connection in the circuit between the taillight fuse and the right taillight. It should be before the security light splices. Refer to diagram.
