My rear lights both left and right are out. Only the brake lights and reverse lights are on. The fuse in the panel is good the bulbs are still good. How do I know if a wire or switch somewhere is the cause? My car is 1995 ford escort.

Do your front sidemarkers turn on? They are on the same circuit as the tail lights. Your 3157 tail light bulb has dual filaments, one for tail light and the other for stop light. Are they both good. A lot of time, you can't see that the filament burned out, but they are.

I would just try replace one of the bulb with a new one, and see what happens.
