Rear lights issue

Emergency flashers, blinkers, and brake lights all work but the rear tail lights are not working. Wasn't sure if it was fuse or bulb related.

Side note: odometer/dash lighting and back lighting for gear shifter is also not working and the reading I've done on that usually points to being fuse related or a "bad" or lack of ground wire.

All of this popped up after getting it back from the shop where they fixed a wiring issue with the A/C

I’m guessing that the front parking lights are not working either since they are on the same circuit as the rear & cluster/HVAC, etc. illumination. All are on fuse 1 in the fuse block behind the glove box so check that with a meter or swap fuses.

It could be that if they were working on the a/c wiring behind the HVAC panel the wire for the lights there got shorted somehow so checking the fuse is a good & easy check.

If the fuse is good & the fronts are out too, it could also be a bad switch.

Most of the lights involved have their own individual ground so not likely a ground issue.

If it happens that the fronts are working, then not a fuse or switch either & then maybe it is a bulb issue but not likely more than one will go out at the same time. Sometimes one or even more will go out without noticing until it becomes apparent at some point so that is a slim possibility.
