Have you tried cleaning up the grounds that bolt to the trunk next to the
rear lamps? They often build up corrosion on the early series 4000s; also
inspect your backing plates(that hold the bulbs), if water makes it's way
into the taillamps corrosion will render the plates junk. Very popular on
Coupe GT's....
I'm presuming your car's charging system is up to spec.
