Help...2001 X5 left tail lights not working

All the lights on my 01 X5 E53 left tail lights (driver side) are not working. They all worked okay until I tried to diagnose a bulb holder problem on the right side. After removing and re-inserting the lowests bulb holder on the left, the whole unit stopped working. All the bulbs and holders on the left work fine on the right side. After much fuss with it, I decided to by a whole new after market rear lights, to avoid the problems associated with the circuit board of the stock light assembly. But still, the left side don't work. Please any suggestions? I am unable drive the car because of the problem.

Ps. I tested all fuses for connectivity( in trunk and glove box). Visually inspected wires to tail light. Tested for voltage to left tail light connector pins, no voltage read.
