Question No Tail Lights Help 93 wrangler

I need help. All of my light's work including the brake lights but, the tail lights do not work. Could it be the headlight switch since they should come on when I turn on the headlights? Or is there some other place I should be looking. I am trying not to have to tear into all of the wires if I don't need to. Has anyone else had this problem?

Nobody with a YJ has had this problem? I thought maybe it may be a common issue with YJ's.

The headlight switch is rather inexpensive so that would be a great place to start. I also would look at the ground wires.

Check the fuses too... My taillights went out once but my dash lights were also out. They were on the same fuse in my 95 YJ

EDIT: headlights worked the whole time my dash lights and tail-lights were out. Brake lights still worked.

I would say it would have to be the switch or the ground wire. My buddy had this problem and it was only the switch but I think it could also be a ground wire too.

I havn't looked at it ( Ron's my brother in law), but he did mention that he tryed a different switch and had the same problem. Sounds like a ground issue to me as well. Maybe a loose connection under the dash, or back at the rear of the frame somewhere.

Well I figured it out. On the headlight switch there are two seperate power wires coming in. one of those is for the tail lights and mine didn't have power. Add power and it's all good. Thanks for the input.
