Hi,

Have a look at the tail-light globes and make sure both are twin filament types. Try with both out and see if that changes what is happening. Some Muppet may have put a wrong globe in. It happens more than it should, and the symptoms are close to what is happening with your car. Also check that your brake lights work.
