Hi, my name is nate and i have an 83 chevy c10 that i cant get the tail lights to work on. my brake lights work unless i turn my head lights on then nothing works in the back and my turn signals and reverse lights dont work period. ive tried a new light switch to no avail. any advice would be greatly appreciated

that is one of the first things i checked after my earlier post. its a power issue it seems but i'm still clueless on how to resolve it. if i run a jumper wire from battery hot to the splice in the lights i can get them to come on so i checked continuity on my wires and they have continuity all the way to the connection box up front. im at a loss
replaced switched with new one. could it be signal switch? light switch is new and hi/low switch works fine. no reverse light or blinkers or tail lights. brake lights work if lights are off but stop working once lights are on
Double the wiring at the switch. Something has to be wrong. You said if you run a wire from battery to lights they work. You might have to run new wires from switch to rear lights and bypass the problem.
