Check to make sure you have power going into the fises.
The two fuses (7 and 23) both do not receive power until the switch is turned on.
I would be relatively certain you will find no power and are looking at a new headlight switch.
The grounds are shared with the brake lights, and you said all other lights work, so you know your grounds are good.
The only thing you have in common with all failed items (tail and tag lights) are wire and the headlight switch.
Failing a bad switch, you will have a wiring issue, it is far less likely though.
When you verify the fuses are good but not powered, you can verify the integrity of the rest of the system by applying power to both of those fuses externally. Your tail and tag lights will illuminate.
If you have any questions or request details of the wiring system, please let me know and I can clarify for you.

    I need to know your exact year and if it is a regular Cherokee or a Grand Cherokee, then I can see if I have a diagram for the fuse box for you

I have a problem with the low beams on my headlights. The high beams works just fine. All of the other lights(turn signal, emergency lights, etc.) work except for the low beams.

Check the fuses first. then replace the turn signal switch if all fuses are good. All the lights run threw it, except the high brake light on the rear.

2002 Yukon denali headlights not work....all otherlights and signals work fine, it is not the headlight switch or the switch on the column any ideas?????

Check the solenoid switch on the electrical panel under the hood. Just switch the solenoid for the lights with one of the others just to test it. This is a cheap thing to replace.

License plate lights are out.

Check the earths, if your getting power to one side of the bulbs the the earth will be at fault. Try running a wire from the neg side to the chassis and see if it works if so clean up earths.

2007 tail light fuse location honda crv

I had this problem with my 2007 Honda CRV -- all the lights worked EXCEPT the tail/running lights and the license plate light. The other tail lights worked -- brake, reverse, indicators, and hazards. Front headlights also worked, but when the headlights went on the back tail lights did not (not to safe for driving at night!!)
The fuse was #15 in the interior fuse box (under the dash driver side) with the label "small exterior lights" ( also check fuse #19 labeled "small lights main"). The cause of my problem, I believe, is a bad or lose wire in my license plate light.
