Default Bulb error light

I got a message for burnt passenger side rear turn signal, I go take out the tail light, remove the bulb carrier, jiggle the connector and bulbs are all working fine.
Come to find out the harness connector is burnt. Went from being a $1 bulb replacement to now possibly at least $100 in repairs.

I'm going through the same thing with mine. Now both rear turn signal it's saying are out but they are fine. I am looking into getting this coded out with vcds.

I took it to a shop to get repaired, cost $90

that was for a connector and wires + labor.

The bulb carrier had a tiny bit of burning but still functional so i opted not to replace it.

Once I got home i replaced all bulbs and packed the connectors with dielectric grease to hopefully try to eliminate a high resistance problem and maybe dissipate some heat.
