Default No Tail or Dash lights

I have read many reasons for these not too work, mostly the light switch itself. Removed it and cleaned it 3 times, bought another light switch,same exact problem.
Headlights turn on blinkers and brakes work, no tail lights or instrument cluster at all.
Work around or drive around is using rear fog light as running lights.

Any Ideas What Else to test or check?

Thanx in Advance

Check fuses look at the following diagrams:
page 204 - 211 on the Rave electrical circuits H4 side lamps. That should get you started.

Check your glovebox light to see if it is shorting and blowing the fuse. A member here has a YouTube video about it.

This is what I would start with. The glove box light is wired into that circuit and causes a lot of this kind of stuff.

Rear bumper right sidelamp bulb holder is frecuently a trouble source. You can pull its connector. To connect a little bulb over a blowed fuse is a good help to find shortcuts.

OK cool guys , thnx.
Checked real quick tonight the glove box bulb and looked normal connectors and bulb not blown. But also out, no light
So I guess tomorrow under daylight I'll check fuses better and rear tail housings.

Thnx
