    I've found some threads on this already, some were a bit dated, some I had a little trouble following, apologize to be redundant.

    For someone that (I'd say is below average on vehicle knowledge, but fairly handy) what are the best options to fix or replace rear tail light assemblies?

    I've read that it is possible to solder the circuit board, I've read that there are recommended companies to send assembly to (to) fix, also maybe possible to purchase refurbed units on ebay or other sites?

    I'd greatly appreciate advice!

    Are you sure that’s the problem?

    From what I’ve read on this site and others it seems that is the issue.

    Is there something else you recommend that I take a look into?

    Check the wires that attach to the assembly for any cracking or corrosion. They can get brittle and chafed.

    If your brake light or running light is not working ? There is a break that can be soldered. I personally repair these lights and have repaired over 30 of them . There are videos that show how to do it online . Or if you don’t feel comfortable doing it your self you can ship it to me and I can repair the same day I receive and shipped back the following day. Feel free to call or email me with any questions.

    How many miles do you have on the vehicle? There is a special warranty specifically for the tail light issue that covers you outside of the bumper-to-bumper warranty.
