Tail Light Help ASAP

Hi. So when I start my car my right tail light will turn on like it's supposed to be but will go off for good after about a minute. I do not understand why. I have replaced the bulbs and it does the same thing. Anyone had this same issue before? Sucks because I cannot drive it without a lit tail light so I'm kinda stuck here lol. All help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

You may want to post what year you have. My 2009 had a recall by BMW because the led strips would go out. So the bulbs still worked, but the led strip/running lights didn't. That looks like the same thing you may have going on.

So yeah, you might want to check recalls and see if yours still falls under the recall. I forget why, but it wasn't something they could fix and they just ended up replacing both of mine.
