My first post, so if it's in the wrong place, please move accoringly, thanks.
I have a 2014 Taurus Limited and the drivers side outer tailight LED does not light completely. (See picture)
I only see 2 bulbs in there that look to be for reverse and turn signal. Is the LED fixable or do I need to just buy another taillight to replace it?
Thanks in advance. Very happy to have found this site!

I have yet to completely remove the tailight, but will inspect it tomorrow. Can't say I have much soldering practice, so I might just look at a new one if I dont see an obvious flaw. Thank you both for the quick response. So glad I found this site!

The issue is likely moisture intrusion causing corrosion on the circuit board, a broken solder point, or burnt out LEDs. I’ve seen some LEDs fail but it’s more likely one of the other two issues listed. In that case, because of difficulty of service, you’re better off replacing with a new unit.
Thanks for the additional insight. I really appreciate it. I've found one to buy if/when I need to. Gonna do a quick inspection today first. Thanks again
