NO TAILLIGHTS!

I don't have taillights or license plate lights. Everything else is fine (blinkers, all three brake, and reverse). fuse is fine, changed both bulbs. I'm assuming a wiring problem but before i dive in to that is there anything simple i could be missing?

if not, is there a common wiring issue?

Thanks,
Eric

Do the front parking lights and/or dash illumination lights work?

Okay, that's all run off the same fuse, and the same contacts in the headlight switch. Next thing to check would be the rear lighting harness connector. IIRC, there's a single brown (?) wire going back from the front of the truck, going to that connector, and then it spilts off to the taillights and plate lights.
