Default Tail lights

My left side tail light is always burning out. The right does it to, but not as much as the left. Something must be going on. I saw someone in the parking lot of a auto part store doing the same thing I was doing with his Bonn. Two people changing tail light bulbs at the same time. He had an SE. Mine is an SLE.
Anyone have there heated seat switch hooked up backwards? The left turns on the right and so on. I know of 2 cars that had this.

check the wiring harness for any bare spots or rub marks. Also check the lamp connectors and make sure your putting the bulb in correctly (theres a small indexing tab).
I've had my bulbs in for over 2 years no problems.
and thas the first time I've heard of the seat switch being crossed? Should be easy to fix though.

I had someone pull up besides me Saturday and tell me my brake lights are not working. Sure enough, he'* right. Both sides, and the 3rd light are out.

Are these fused? I'm hoping this is simple and not a problem caused by the body work I had done last year. The shop didn't hook up the load leveling air hoses, and messed up the trailer wiring when they put the car back together.
