Left Tail Light Out Completely- Fuse and Bulbs Okay

Hello! I am having a hard time figuring out what is wrong with my tail light in my 2010 Jeep Wrangler. All of the left lights went out at the same time (turn signal, reverse, brake, and parking). I have replaced the bulbs and the fuses but it is still no power to the entire light. Any suggestions?

Honestly go to the dealer, their scan tool will be able to pinpoint the issue faster than you chasing wires. The TIPM while a horrendous pain in the butt is actually fairly accurate in that area...assuming of course the TIPM itself isn't the issue.

Do the JKs ground through the housing like TJs? It is a ground as that is only thing they all have in common.

I could install LEDs for less than they would charge to find the problem.

I'm lucky that the dealer near me is actually fairly reasonable for diagnostics. It was under $200 to get the diagnostic and 3 wires repaired in the brake circuit on my old Patriot.
