2001 model, just replaced the 3 bulbs in the high mount brake light above the rear window. The brake light works but the 2 white cargo lights do not. Heard this can be caused by a ballast going bad...where is it? Or what else could be the problem?

It maybe simple in that you already checked but the socket isn't corroded or anything

I'll check again, but the brake light works fine after I replaced a burnt bulb. There are no signs of corrosion in/underneath this light assembly. I heard the Explorer suv's have the same problem and it's some kind of ballast in the rear door. I don't know where it would be on the sport trac...
