Tail light issue, driver only

Now I did a search both on here and Google but couldn't find this exact issue. Driver side tail light running lights do not work but passenger is fine and the stop light works. Replaced bulbs and still same issue. Pulled the tail light and messed with socket and wiring and nothing worked. The weird thing is if you manually turn the lights on and off the lights will flash on and turn right off. So this would make me assume it isn't a fuse or relay. I don't believe this is the Canadian model so it doesn't have the DRL module from what I have seen, is this correct? So im thinking a grounding issue. Any common areas to check first? 2009 Sedona. Thanks in advance.

I don't remember which year or Kia model had problems with that (1st Gen Sportage guy here). I did find a recall on melting headlamp connectors or wiring on I believe what was the Sedona for another member on here. Check for a recall. It was causing tail light issues although it was a melted connector or wiring on the headlamp(s).

I attempted to find the post about where the melted headlamp wiring had caused tailight issues but was unsuccessful. I found a recall on the brake lamp switch for your vehicle.

Unplug your headlamp bulbs and get a good look at the connectors and wiring for any sign of melting. This problem has sent a few Kia's down in a blaze of glory.
