I would be checking connectors that are in trunk, around engine fuse box and main harness connectors.

Also check the umbilical in the hatch area, the wiring harness for the hatch runs through this. These are know to chaff and cause problems. The rain may have just help the problem along.

Good Luck.

I checked all the connectors at the tail lights all of them were in good shape I did however find a spit wire coming into the hatch so will try and fix it and see whats happens i am getting the right voltage for the tail lights but nothing for the brake lights or turn signal. I hope it doesnt get worse. thanks for the input.
