You've done most of the steps I would have so far... Now use a meter and trace the wires backward. Sounds like a broken or chewed up wire along the route backwards. Also try a separate wire with power to see if you can deliver power to those lights. If they work, albeit temporary for the test, you grounds are good. If one works and the other does not, then THAT ONE has a ground loss. In any case, you have it narrowed down, and I would hope that by now you may have your answer. Let us know so we can share our knowledge with other readers. Thank you!

Jaguar xk8 auto, won't come out of park


your brake switch, the one that activates rear brake lights has probably failed. Press brakes, have someone see if brake lights turn on, if no then it is a brake light switch problem.
