Question about Chevrolet Corvette
SOURCE: 1991 volvo tail lights
Could you take out a bulb and with a testlight/probe check that you do in fact have power to that circuit .Also check that they are the correct bulb for that application I have seen people put indicator bulbs in where therse supposed to be a double filament bulb.Does the base of the bulbs lead contacts line up with the two steel terminals inside the plug?

sounds like a broken wire in the harness. look around the bumper area,sometimes along the frame. may have to peel back some tape covering. also if you have a trailer harness look closely at those.

Are the bulbs out of the sockets and the fuse blows?
Take bulbs out and check again
Place one back at a time if fuse was OK with bulbs out to locate bad bulb.
Do this........if still needed with bulbs out and fuse blowing.
Put a circuit breaker in to replace the fuse of the same amperage.
It will trip off then back on.
Use a standard cheap magnetic compass........place along lighting wiring........the wire with current will cause the needle to jump as circuit breaker trips on and off.
Follow path of current to problem.....the compass will stop moving once past the shorted /grounded wire/connection.

SOURCE: rear tail lights not working
If both tail lights are not working it is likely to be a fuse or bad connection under the hood or a connector at the back see if you can trace the wires to a connector and see if it is dirlty or corroded.

Check that your brake light switch is working. It is located on the upper part of the brake pedal under the dash. It should have current going in and when depressed the current should go thru the switch. if it is working check to make sure current is getting to the bulb. If not you have to find where the current stops and repair the wire.

Is your lense cracked where water can get into the housing? Are you absolutely certain that you are replacing it with the correct bulb? Are you using a good name brand bulb like Wagner or Sylvania? or some off-brand cheap bulb made in China?
