For some reason the 114/115 early tail lights either had metal contacts available to the second 5w lamp or not. Gump came to me with no brass tongue thing to put power to the second bulb, so no light.

When you turn on the lights you normally twist to the right. To activate fog, pull out one click, for back fog, another click or all the way toward you.

Could you expand on this? I have a "Gump" too. Or is that blasphemy? Seriously though, I'd like to know what you mean by changing out the rear lamps. Which lamps specifically did you replace and what fills their previous function? Wait. I just found this post which answers that.

there are two bulb holes in the center, above the back up light.  Only
one was powered in Gump's prior set of tail lights.  The newer lamps
have contacts in both holes.  When I turn the fogs on fully the second
bulb fires up.

changed out the rear lamps on Gump so that she would have rear fogs,
and maybe get rid of the water seeping in
