A: I would suggest you hire a lawyer to file a motion to suppress to have the court rule upon whether the police had probable cause to stop your vehicle. Make them prove the light was out at the time of the stop. If they are unable to do so, then all the evidence that was located after the vehicle was stopped could be suppressed and the State would be unable to prosecute you.
