    Mine is a 1995 Grand Prix SE and I have the same thing. I have to have the whole top intake done over and she sat for about 2 months while i waited for the parts. Now I have no tail lights, signal and brake lights are fine. I am hoping that it is something simple.

It sounds like the ground wire for the rear lights has either come loose or is corroded.

Check the ground for the rear lights. If you have a voltmeter or test light check for power at the bulb sockets. For the tail lights, turn park or headlight switch on. For the brake lights, have someone hold the brake pedal down. Do the front park lights work okay? You really need a voltmeter to do any electrical testing. And a wiring diagram so you know what and where to test. With a voltmeter for instance, you could check not only the fuses, but if the fuses have power to them. You need to know that to determine which direction to take, back towards the battery, or forward to the switches and bulbs. To see a wiring diagram of your exterior lights, go to BBB Industries. They have a huge database of free wiring diagrams for just about every vehicle from 1986 to present year.

No brake lights

Check fuses and check for continuity through the turn siganl switch. Also check for power at the brake light switch.
If you have all this then check for good grounds at the wiring harness for the taillights/brake lights. Of course check for good bulbs and the condition of the sockets.

2000 Acura 3.5 RL suddenly has no tail lights or tag lights. Brake, reverse and blinker all work. Checked fuses-all appear fine. Decided to replace bulbs and noticed front right marker light out so changed...

The only thing that both the brake lights and tail lights use is a ground connection. Keep in mind the warning light on the dash may be for any exterior lamp. You may need to check the sockets and grounds on all four corners of the car.

My brake lights will not come on at all. The fuses are fine as well as the bulbs.

start by checking voltage in and out of the brake switch, from there you can trace voltage from the turn signal switch to the taillights, if all is welll make sure you have good ground to the sockets

No inst. panel,parking,taillights

I would check the ground wire for the parking light circuit, especially around and in the light socket where you replaced the bulb.

Two back bottom brake lights are out, the one at the top works fine

1994 ford f150 brake lights work but taillights dont

The first thing you have to do is get a test light. Turn your park lights on and see if you have power to the tailight. If there is power, you need to replace bulbs. If there is no power, probe the wire from the bulb socket back, until you find power. If you have an after market trailer plug on there, that s a good place to look for a short. Especially where the wires are spliced in.
