Default Electrical problem...!!!

I'm trying to get this bonne all the way up to par fellas...so this time my lights only on my rigjt side won't stay lit up....high beam and low beam are fine but the corner light won't stay lit ...the blinker works fine but thts it, when the blinker is not on its not working. The same with the right brake light...when i hit the brakes it lights up fine but when I'm not on the brakes no lights.....i took the volt meter and checked the currents and it shows I'm not getting power to my black wire...now guys how can i replace this wire or trace this wire and where does it even end at. I need advice on how to handle this...o yeah the insides of these sockets were burnt if that helps at all.....

the blacks are grounds. start at the bulb end see if the socket has power, then work back, see if the wire has power if you pierce the insulation by the socket and so on until you find where you lose power

signal you are tracng starts at interment panel fuse marked lp pk r(check fuse with meter and wiggle to see if getting good contact), spits inside the fuse panel to two brown/white wires one splits in the underhood fuse block and goes to the front marker and one side of the turn signal, still brown/white. other from ip splits into 5 at the rear block.the one you are concerned with is the brown/white to the side marker or the one combined tail/turn/brake turns purple before it hits the socket.
