I don't need the wiring diagram; I've held the harness and it only
connects to three lamps, as previously described.

I just returned from looking at my harness (driver's side rear).  It makes 5
connections, 4 in a row (to lamps it appears) easily visible next to the
harness and a 5th near the top of the assembly right behind the LED array.
You can only see the 5th connection with your head on the floor an a
flashlight point toward the top of the assembly.

Well, I'll make sure the mechanic is told to check that connection
before installing a whole new assembly.  An hour of labor is surely
less expensive than that assembly.

Put your fingers around the harness and slide your hand upward past the four
easily visible connections.  About 3" above the top visible connection you
will feel the harness turn sharply toward the lamp assembly.  If it is loose
or disconnected you may be able to feel that.  This test will take less than
a minute of your time.

Thank you, I found the connection, but it is not loose or disconnected.

When this is fixed, let us know what the problem was.
