2004 Chevy Venture Tail Light Circuit Board Issues

I have a 2004 Chevy Venture experiencing issues with the driver side (left) tail light circuit board. The break bulb, left turn signal bulb, and reverse indicator bulb aren't working. Both the top and bottom running light(s) bulbs are working when activated, however when the left turn signal and/or hazard lights are activated, instead of the left turn signal bulb turning on, both the top and bottom running lights flash in sync with the turn signals. Tonight I'm going to temporarily swap the driver and passenger side tail light circuit boards to see what happens. Any ideas on where the issue might be? Vehicle electronics isn't my strong suit. Any suggestions and/or advice would be greatly appreciated! It's my understanding that tail light electrical issues with the 2004 Chevy Venture (and other GM Mini vans from this same generation) are quite common.

    Yes, you'll definitely need a good wiring diagram to track this down. If it were my car and I was guessing, I'd be suspicious of the ignition switch and the fuse box itself--two possible points of intersection between the directional circuit and the ignition circuit.

    This is one possible source for the wiring diagrams: http://www.bbbind.com/tsb-wiring-diagrams/
