    Drivers side tail light out and headlight

    Both drivers side headlight and tail light are out. I replaced fuse for tail light but no help. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Check your grounds. The tail light should ground to he tub as a part of the light mount. The headlight ground should be up front behind the grill.

    If on a 1999 - 2004 the tail light has an issue with the circuit board (alot), but if both are out then it is most likely a bad wire or the "light out sensor module" has gone out.

    Try running a supplemental, known ground. Also, carefully probe the light socket for power. Carefully, and don't shot it by accident.

    And check the obvious...are the bulbs good? That tail could have been out awhile and you might not have noticed it.

    Is there power on both sides of the fuse? Probe with a grounded test light.
