Check the fuses. That would be the first place to start.

Re: whats wrong with my taillight ?

did you get the correct bulb? Its easy to get the single filament instead of the dual filament

Yea. The guy could be giving you the right number bulb but some have letters after the numbers and it means something. Could also be a parking lamp fuse. Check to see of the front passenger parking light comes on. I blew a parking lamp fuse once and had the same thing happen.
