06 Liberty tail light problem?

Ok, so our 06' Liberty has this annoying problem with the passenger's side tail light, the stop/night light's socket that connects directly to the metal pin on the red lamp assembly doesn't make contact so occasionally, I either have my stop/night light working correctly or I have either just the stop or just the night light working, last night I only had my stop light working and not the night light, so this morning I tried to adjust the socket to make contact with the metal part on the red lamp assembly and it kind of worked and it was working properly, however tonight I drove again and I had just the stop working and not the night light!! But here comes the weird part that never happened before, the interior lights that illuminate the cluster, the radio and the PRND12 bezel were off and they would only illuminate when I applied my brakes. Does anybody know what the heck is wrong with our Liberty and why my dashboard lights only illuminate while pressing the brake pedal? By the way, all light bulbs are new so it's not that.

I would suggest that you replace the socket assembly as that is where the problem is coming from.
You do get weird symptoms sometimes if you have bad earthing...replace the unit first and see what happens.

Yeah,the dashboard lights problem was just a blown fuse, this fuse shares the dash lights with the rear pass. side parking light so that was the problem, I also had to adjust a little the socket to get contact, I think I'm going to have to replace the whole tail light assembly in the future since where the socket goes it is a little burned and this causes to mess up my lights, I'll just leave it until it stops completely working.
