Electrical problem
1996 Toyota Corolla 154000 miles

Both tail light in my car do not work, the brake lights, tuturning signals and reverse lights still do just not the basic tail lights. Ive checked the fuses and lightbulbs but have come up with nothing. Im concerned it might be an electrical problem due to the fact that niether side works. What do you think?
Do you

Check the plastic housing that they fit in, look for any burnt areas around the bulbs, this may indicate a bad ground.

Turn parking lights on and check for voltage at the connector.

I had the same problem on a 95. The ground was bad and just needed a solid ground. Use a multimeter to test your sockets and reground the faulty wires to bare metal.
