Hello,

I would check the light bulb first but then hit up the fuse becasue if one fuse is out it will cause this problem.

Here are some guides that will help you get the problem fixed.

Need to remove tail light housing to check for water leak into tire jack well on right side. I already replace the tail gate weather seal.

There should be a cople of screws you can see once you open the liftgate. If yo have a water leak you shold have the spare out an dliftgate closed then have a helper spray the back end of vehicle and on top to see if you can see the water coming in.
