Check the bulb housings are clean and free of rust and dirt
Check the earth straps around boot area are tight and in good order (Signs of a bad earth can be bulbs not working or other bulbs illuminating out of sequence)

You obviously have a broken wire or two in the loom that runs from the body to the tailgate. Peel back the rubber sheath and hopefully the broken wiring will be evident
