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.

I have a 01 GMC Sonoma. One night noticed i had no tail lights. But my brake lights work. I have blinkers and hazards. I have checked all the fuses and the blubs. I also have power back to the sockets.

Well, if you have power on the tail light circuit you should have lights. The tail light circuit is different from brake and turn signal, and they both use the same ground.
Are you sure you have power on the tail light circuit to the bulbs ? And are the parking lights out for the front too ?

My brake lights work but my tail lights and reverse lights don't work. Also my dash lights quit when I changed the switch for my headlights.

Check your fuses. I had the same problem with a 90 Honda civic. Dash lights went out, tail lights also went out. Replaced 1 fuse and all came back on.

Tail lights don't work when front lights are on

This sounds like it could be a problem in the wiring harness. You can probably get a new one at the dealership or a parts store but it is very complicated to put in. Recomended you take it to a shop that has experience with that to get it checked out to be sure.

My tail light on my 2003 escalade is not working, tried replacing the lightbulb. blinker works

Which tail light? - Brake? - Reverse? - Night Red?
Do all the other lights in the cluster unit work?
Check the supply fuses in the dash or engine bay, they should be mapped on the fuse box door or in the owners handbook.
Put a multimeter (Volts DC) across the supply lines and see if you get voltage (when operated).
If its brake, check the floor actuator (switch) behind the pedal shaft.
If its reverse, do the same for the actuator by the gearstick.
Hope this helps.
