I am not sure, but my Ford Taurus is doing the same thing. I found that if I take the positive battery cable off for about 10 minutes and put it back on, they will work for about 2 weeks.

I found on my wife's 2001 Mercury Sable that the black connector going to the instrument cluster was loose. I cleaned the connections with electrical cleaner and reinstalled the cluster. It seems to solved the problem. The dash lights are L.E.D.'s and when I was removing the cluster I performed the Ford Wiggle test and the lights came on.

A sharp rap with the palm of your hand on the dash just forward of the steering wheel will light it up every time. Repeat when needed

You have some problems with electrical connections. Most likely the ground wire of the tail lights. Also, the left light may be burned out or have a POSITIVE wire connection problem.
