Default 2ES Tail light won't illuminate

My passenger tail light won't come on when I turn on my head lights. The side marker and license light are the only ones that comes on. I plugged that whole light harness into the driver side and every light worked. What's the problem? I checked all of my grounds too.

Yup u can pop open the box and inspect the traces for any burnt wires on the PCB. I had a burnt wire and it was a simple fix

Okay, Thanks for the help! I appreciate it. Also since I don't have heated seats, if I buy a switch and plug it into the factory harness and put a fuse in it will it turn on?

If you don't have the heated seat option then you also don't have the heating elements. Sorry.
