you may want to make sure its not grounding wrong, if the wires are touching, say, the exhaust, it could cause some problems

On many cars the dash lights and tail lights are on the same fuse so when ever the tail lights fail you'd notice via the dash lights aren't working.From what you say about hitting a hard bump at freeway speeds you may have a loose wiring harness or bad wiring connection, or damaged/disconnected wire or even a bad headlight switch.































I'd start by double checking the fuse chart to located the correct fuse, making sure that all the fuses are in fact okay maybe get a 12 volt voltage tester or a voltage/ohms meter to test each fuse.From there you have to check the wiring and connections to the fuse socket that is for the taillights etc.Look under the car, look in the trunk for frayed or broken or damaged wiring, especially check the grounds.































Hope that helps and best of luck.By the way it might help to have a wiring diagram for that car so look it up online.
