Question about Cars & Trucks
Probably in the wiring harness from the back lights to the front of the truck. If a trailer hitch is installed, check for the wiring connections there.

SOURCE: No tail lights
Try checking the headlight switch it may have broken contacts in it. Easy fix go to a salvage yard find same make and model truck, swap headlight switches.

Obviously you have a short somehow power is bleading over to this circuit. You may be forced to do some hard debuging (i.e wiring diagram, test light isolate the problem on the circuit).
If I were taking a guess I would try the following:
1) Remove the fuse for the taillight
2) If the light goes out I would start looking at the dashboard light switch
3) If the light does not go out then I would start looking toward the rear end of the truck wires that are scouffed, trailer light connections ect.
Hope this gives you a start, needless to say a short can take forever to find.

By the way, if that happens again (Same thing happened to me) It was inside the front diff. That vacuum actuator that sits on the passenger side that has a vacuum hose going up to it has a built in cable that plugs into the front diff. There are little springs that go bad and there is no tension on the cable. It retracts but doesn't engage the axle.
It's 3 bolts, then pry it open just enough to get access to the spring that holds the cable together. ;) That's how I fixed my problem permanently

I had a 1987 s10 4x4 and put a new battery in it and the 4x4 quit. turns out the vacuum control is right behind battery. listen for sucking sound and see if it is loose on yours.
