No tail lights

When I turn the headlights on I don't have any tail lights or dash lights. I replaced the switch and have the same problem. Did burn something out when I hooked up the led tail/reverse lights without resistors? I can get everything on by pushing the in switch a little but it's not right. Does anybody know the cause or how to fix this?

Maybe a simple question, but did you check the fuse?

I didn't check the fuses because I could get them to come by playing with the switch. I did check them after you mentioned it and found that fuse #4 was blown. It's now fixed, thanks a ton. I forgot about rule #1, start out simple when troubleshooting!!
