SOME LIGHTS DO NOT WORK

1991 Mercury Capri

Electrical problem
1991 Mercury Capri 6 cyl Manual

When I hit the headlamp switch all the way up the headlights go on, the brake, backup, turn signal and license plates lights work but the tail and parking lights to not work. L

I unscrewed the front right side lamp and all the side lamps came on but no tail lamp. When I took the cover off the side lamps went out.

Since all the above worked it tells me the bulbs are all good, I guess.

I replaced the switch with no luck. Also the dasy lights do not work replaced that switch and no luck. My wife, whose car it is, says she could hit the switch and get the dash lights to come on. I need to get the car inspected but it will not pass this way.

I replaced all the fuses but they were ok.

Not sure what else to do.
