1991 wrangler taillight problem

Hello all- I am new to the forum. I own a 1991 jeep wrangler Islander edition in super shape that runs smooth with 176,000 miles on it. About a month ago my dash lights went out and now my taillights dont work either. The brake and turn signals work, but the top bulb which comes on when you put on your headlights is out on both sides. Fuses and switches are good. Is it the ground to the tub or if it was- wouldnt all the lights in the back not work. help

You know, this happened to me recently. I had inadvertently installed one of my front running lights upside down in a bulb change. The drain hole was then on the top instead of the bottom. Light filled up with water, and popped fuses.

Anyway, I would remove all of the bulbs from the running lights. If you don't actually find the problem doing that, then do this. Put a new fuse in and see if it blows, If it does, then you have a wire shorted. If not, install a one bulb at a time untl the fuse blows. Then you'll know where your problem is.

Welcome to WF!!
To all who serve, Thank You.
