You can buy a new taillight complete with new bulbs and sockets for $40 on Amazon. Instead of spending $30 trying to track down the problem with single parts, I find it's easier just to buy the entire thing for $10 more.
The circuit boards in these taillights go bad quite often, so there's only so much bending of tabs and what not before it just stops responding.
As for the infamous quacking noise, search for door lock actuator on this forum. Hope this helps!
