Open the trunk, remove part of the carpet that is just behind the turn signal. You will find the socket, it's black, move it to the left or to the right about half a turn until it unlocks, you will find the bulb. The bulb has two filaments, one for the turn signal and the other for the stop light. If either one is bad, you need to replace the bulb. Many times the bulb connectors, get rusted or accumulate dust and does not make a good connection, therfore your turning signal or your stop light won't work, just clean the connectors, both from the bulb and form the socket and put it back and see if it works.
