The next thing to check is the taillight relay. It is in the under hood fuse/relay centre. When out, switch it with another one close by, AC, horn, etc and see if it works. If it does, replace the relay. If not, look at the bottom of the relay near the pins. There you will see numbers. The numbers are 85, 86, 87 and 30. Testing the corresponding socket in the fuse box, ensure you have power in socket 85 and 87. If you don't, the trouble is inside the fuse box between the fuse and relay. If you do have power to both, use a short piece of wire and jump socket 85 and 30. Check to see if taillights are on. If no, there are wiring issues in the harness between the fuse box and tail lights. If yes, disconnect wire and put a test light between socket 85 and 86. The light should be off. Turn the headlight switch on and watch the test light. Does it come on? If you have come this far, the answer is no. Leaving the test light connected, look under the steering column for the wiring harness running up to the steering wheel. At the connector, you will find a plain white wire. Using another length of wire, ground the white wire. Is the test light on? yes, replace the headlight switch, No, there is a wiring problem in the harness between the fuse box and steering column.

Diagnosis is just half the fun.
