It sounds like based on the description you provided of the issue that one white ground wire is not working on your new LED tail lights.

I would first make sure that the connector on your new LED light that is having the issue does not have any debris in it causing the connection issue.

Next check the ground wire going to that light and make sure it is securely connected to clean corrosion free metal. Ground wires being loose can cause all sorts of havoc.

If these steps do not fix the issue just let me know and we will go into more in-depth troubleshooting.

I included a link to a helpful article on wiring for you to take a look at.
