Rear marker light

I have a malfunctioning rear marker light -- I have done the basic bulb change which didn't work--what would be my next step? Thanks

Fuse?

Is the contact clean?

Was the old bulb broken?

Corrosion is suspect #1!

The wires rund behind the rear wheel, subject to all kinds of hazards. I would also look at the state of the wires themselves.

Thanks everyone--I suspected the wires as well when I was changing the bulb (which was not broken, my first clue that this was going to be more involved) as they looked slightly corroded..is that easy to fix? I'll also look into the bullet connectors.

Another question, if it was the fuse giving the problem, wouldn't the same side front marker be out as well? (it is functioning fine) I was under the assumption that both of those lights are controlled by the same fuse.
Thanks

Yes both lights (and the side lights) are controlled by the same fuse.
