Question Help diagnosing!

I just got my jeep back from the collision shop after i backed up into my neighbors house (whoops ) the damage to the jeep was minimal but i realized the my right tail light isnt working at all now. i replaced the bulb thinking it would fix it but no luck. when i turn on my right blinker the dash blinker is twice as fast. but neither the blinker, reverse or brake light are turning on on the right tail light. i could take it back to the shop but its a long drive and i'd rather learn myself as im sure its just a lose wire or something? where do i start diagnosing? and how/where do i get to the parts? thanks guys!

Sounds as if they forgot to plug it back into the wireharness.

Reach up in your right rear wheel and pull the plastic down. Then look up where the tail light is. The will be a 4 pin connector...should be plugged into the RR Tail light.

Let us know pal.

Start at the rear of the wheel well. Only pull a few of the tabs out. You will eventuall get to one of those push thru plastic bolt looking like things. You do not need to pull that out.

Let us know.
