Default 87 CAMRY TAILLIGHTS OUT! HELP ME PLEASE - need wiring diagram!

My 87 toyota camry just lost its tail lights. the brake lights work.
the light for the license plate is also working. on the side of the car
is a small red light....it works on the right but not the left. There
is also a small light inside the front doors...working on the right
also but not the left!!!
I checked all the fuses with a test light...circut tester , all good. I
checked all those wires that come up on the left side of the
trunk....heard those can get really messed up...none were broken or
craked...but they were severly bend so i tested a couple of them with
the tester...and they were not getting any electricity as far as i can
tell.
I really dont know anything about this..i just bought the circut tester
and am reading alot...but im no mechanic!
if anyone knows about this problem or has had it before....please tell
me what i can do!!! I got pulled over and recieved a fix it
ticket....thats how i found out about this problem....and now i have to
fix this fast so i can turn in the ticket without a big fine! Is there
are way to run a new wire back to the tail lights ?
i need a wireing diagram if anyone has one !!!!
okay thanks!
JNS

Did you check the light bulbs?

For the side marker lights, change the bulbs.
For the trunk hinge wiring you'll need to carefully cut out the bad
sections and solder in new wire.
I found coiling the new wire around a screwdriver first gave them extra
flexibility to last longer (like a coiled telephone cord)

Sometimes a wire will be broken inside the insulation and it doesn't look
like it's broken. If you pull gently on the wire on one side of where it was
bent severely while holding it a distance away on the other side of the bend
the insulation will stretch as there is no connection inside to hold it in
place. Try this on each wire to see if that's the case.
