It sounds like you have a short in the light cluster. Your best bet is to take it out, clean up the contacts, make sure its dry and check any earthing points.

Does sound like a bad earth. I would make sure that the connectors on both back lights are clean and not corroded. Make sure the contacts on the bulb holders are clean as well. That should sort the problem.
