They might be related but you need to get a scan to retrieve the trouble codes first.

Check the illumination control and ensure it is not set to minimum, if equipped. Check the fuses and note if the taillights are working.

U will need to check all the fuses with a test light for voltage on both sides of the fuses it will say dash lights. Use the owners manual to find the fuse panels. Take the car to the parts store and they can check the codes. Then come back gl
