Help! No side/tail lights on either circuit!

Hi Guys, hoping you can help me out here!

Both side/tail circuits have gone out on my UK model wrangler, though probably not by coincidence when I replaced the two front sidelight bulbs in the headlamps. Both sidelights worked momentarily, then went out before I had a chance to get the front grille back on. I checked fuses 17 & 18, they were fine (but replaced them anyway), but there's no current at the bulb sockets (front or rear) or at the fuses themselves. I've checked the obvious earths in the engine bay, but nothing seems to have been disconnected or corroded. Totally stumped and the mechanic hasn't been able to work it out either. Any suggestions would really be welcomed. Thanks!

I recommend that you start by using a test light to check each and every fuse. There is very tiny window in the plastic of each pole. You can get a test light in there Be sure to check *both* terminals of each fuse when, while you have the key in the run position. This should clear out fuse issues for sure.

Thanks, good advice. I've just check them all, but they're fine.
