2012 Jeep compass passenger tail light out

The girlfriend backed up into a poll and hit the back passenger tail light and it is not working at all. Thought it was just the light cause the turning signal was going fast but none of the lights work. Any help???

Did you try to remove it? There's maybe a broken part inside.

The harness or lights may have shorted blowing the fuse(s). Some are in the TTPM mount in front of the air box. Your owners manual has the fuse assignments. You likely need a meter to very power it there at both tabs (accessible without pulling the fuses) at the top are small test probe holes. Otherwise you'll have to pull them. If the short still exists from the damage replacing the fuse won't do anything since it will blow again. Checking the wiring at the panel from the inside would be necessary.
