tail lights and guage cluster lights are out?

ive checked all the fuses and nothing is wrong. i still have headlights all blinkers and brake lights just no tail lights and guage lights. and the warning beeping noise that goes off when you leave your lights on doesnt work either. i was told by someone that it was my headlight switch so i changed that and i still have the problem. any ideas?

Either a bad wire in the steering column, that's common.
Maybe the GEM module too.
How'd you check the fuses?

Get a test light and test each side of each fuse first. Or ohm meter and ohm out each fuse.
If you test light them, both sides should light up if they are good. If not, the constant 12V side will light up, and the other won't if it's blown.
Ohm meter will just test continuity. If there's unlimited resistance, it's blown.
