Tail light issues

Ok so here's the issues I'm have. One tail the brake light works, but when I turn the lights on it won't light up. The other light is the opposite. It will light up when the lights are on but the brake light doesn't work. I replaced the bulb on one of the tail lights and still the same issue.

Thanks

Make sure your taillights are well grounded. Weird things like this often occur when there is a lack of proper ground.

I soldered a wire from each bulb holder and ran it to a clean ground.

As others mentioned, check the grounds.

Check the wires from the back to the front.

However, I had a bad headlight switch once, where the lights worked except the headlights.

So, keep that in mind. When they go bad, they act weird.
