Check to make sure they have a good ground, 9 times out of 10 this is the problem. An Ohm meter will tell you if there is any resistance to the ground.

hmm this is a brand new tail light socket

but ill check the ground

there shouldn't be any power going to the ground correct? i know how to wire a house but not a car in a house there shouldnt be anything going to the ground its just an in case type of thing

If the lights are on and you put a test light between the positve and the ground, the ground will be hot, because it's completing the circuit. If you test the ground to the body it should not be hot though. As mentioned there should be a black ground from the harness or light socket that should go to the body.
