rear warning light indicator stay on

After a bag of groceries hit the inside of my trunk the warning light came on for the rear lights. After hitting just the right spot again, it went out. Twice this happened. The third time it won't go out. Noticed a tail light out, replaced it. Didn't light up. Warning indicator still on. All other lights work except the left rear tail. Can't figure out the problem. My 97 sc400 has 62k miles and never had a problem. The replacement light is 5.0 w just like the original.:confused:

Check the wiring and make sure the wires are plugged into the sockets properly for that left tail bulb..seems like a wire might have been disconnected
My guess is that the wire is not making good contact with the socket. Try wiggling the wire and see if the light flickers. If it does, there's a loose connection.
