Boot lid electrics

I have a 320D SE saloon with electrical problems.

The boot lid has four bulbs, two reversing lights and two side lights.

I have put the ignition to stage 2 (engine off) with the gear stick in reverse with the lights switched on.

Only one bulb lights up fully (the off side reversing light), the other three are very dim.

When I put a meter on each connection it reads 3v (o/s reversing light) and 1v from the other three connections.

If it helps, the parking sensors are not working now either - are these connected??
