If it is indeed the taillight, and not the break light, then most likely it will need replacement. Of course you should check for shorts first, but failure is common in these units. They are rows of led builbs, manuf by Hewlett Packard. Either one row or all the bulbs can go out, resulting in dim or no light. I believe they run about 150 $ a piece.. they are expensive. I think they can be obtained at http://www.supercoupeperformance.com

open the trunk and unplug them, thats what I did. Wait till you get a good deal on them on the buy/sell or ebay.
