Default Turn signal not working

Hello, I have a interesting issue and I was wondering if anyone had any ideas... My right rear turn signal isn't working. I replaced the bulb and when that didn't work, I tried the taillight assembly on the other side and it worked fine. The side marker/signal doesn't work either. Any ideas?

Thanks for the reply!

I pulled the assembly out of the right side and plugged it in on the left. It works fine. Can the side marker light/signal being out cause the rear turn signal not to work?

if you swapped turns and it works then ther is likely an internal fault in te tail , either a bad ground or corroded socket

Default Update...

Turned out to be a bad BCM. The dealer I bought it from (Not a MINI Dealer) had to order the part. After waiting a week, the service manager called me and said "I have good news and bad news.... the good news is the turn signal is working... the bad news is now the headlights don't work." Another week later and I am on the road.

Thanks for all the help.
