Hi there good morning to you and sorry for the delay in responding I was out all day yesterday

 

ok the first test I would carry out is to check for power at the rear light cluster multiplug (with holder connected )

Check for 12 volts with ignition on and brake pressed across pin 5 (blue/grey wire )= brake bulb feed and pin 3 (black /blue wire )= earth

if you have 12 volts across these pins then the issue will be in the holder (most commonly a cracked spring loaded pin )

As both lights share the same feed from the bcmii the wiring from bcmii must be ok thus we must rest for voltage at the holder

 

If you need any further help or technical assistance going forward

please let me know and I will do my upmost to assist you
