Each rear tail light assembly circuit board had to be replaced. These occurred at different times (approximately 6 months apart). Now, about a year later, the right rear needs to be replaced again. This was found due to the blinker and brake light failing, so I switched the bulb from the other side, with the exact same results, so I know it is the circuit and not a bad bulb.

Right rear turn signal failed to operate; in-dash indicator properly indicated failure by rapid flash. With great difficulty, opened taillight assembly; found light bulb not failed; can not properly re-assemble and gasket is not sold separately to permit re-assembly. Had to replace 'circuit board' which connects to wiring harness to sockets; cost is $70 (seventy dollars) although 'circuit board' is wiring only and has no components; dealer parts clerk helpfully advised "the circuit boards fail all the time -- there isn't a recall, but there should be a recall. " system is designed to virtually require replacement of entire turn signal/backup/taillight unit for $127 (one hundred twenty-seven dollars) with dealer-only parts, precluding any field repairs on trips, etc; causing great likelihood that turn signal will not function for extended periods of time because of trouble and cost of replacing the unit.
