    depends on how comfortable you are with having a look around inside the car, my guess would be a faulty earth.

    Clean the terminals to the light plus make sure no water is in any of the units as this would cause a problem.

    in fact, it might be worth pulling the connectors out of each tail light one side at a time to see if the problem goes away

    Sound like a very good idea.
    Only things that normally cause these problems are bad earths and water or possibly a dodge bulb.
    When you take the bulbs out inspect the unit connector for the bulb as well.
