Tail Lights don't work!

Hey guys.


My brake lights and turn signals both work. However, my tail lights (when I turn the lights on at night) don't work. The front ones do, but the back ones don't.

What could it be?

The connector at the rear or a splice someone made to hook up trailer wiring. The whole truck's parking light system is fed from one common brown wire. So if the front ones work, that means part of the system is getting power, so the brown wire must have a problem at the rear of the truck. The license plate lights are fed by the same wire also.
