2004 BMW X5 brake light out and driver front turn signal

I have a 2004 BMW X5 that has the right rear brake light out. I have changed the bulbs. I have plugged the assembly to the drivers side to see if all light work and they do so it appears that the problem is in the harness or plug wiring. Some of the wiring does work because the right rear turn signal does light up on that side, so power is getting to part of it. Anyone have this problem? I also have a drivers turn signal that will not work. I changed the bulb there but it also will not work. Ideas?

Check bulb contact - they all burn in time - that is BMW weak spot. solution is to replace the whole light assembly or do what others suggest - use google

I have cleaned the contacts for both. It doesnt seem to be a faulty assembly since i have plugged that assembly to the other side and all lights do work properly. I think its in the harness or plug. But the plug does light up the turn signal for the passenger side.
