I have a 2011 grand caravan. Break lights, turn signals, reverse lights on both sides work but when I turn on headlights neither of the rear running lights come on. As far as I can tell it's a not as easy as changing a bulb. Is there a way to fix it without replacing the entire light assembly? Could it be a fuse? Could it be an issue with wiring for towing a trailer?

Had it in for inspection and they said it needed new tail lights to pass inspection. Took it home and figured out on my own that it was just an issue with a fuse. You would think the mechanic would have checked that first since the tail lights are LED's and not a bulb that you can just switch out. They were going to charge me over $300 to replace a broken tail light cover and replace the lights.

Our techs do check the fuses. Had a Diesel that wouldn't start.. Customer replaced starter thinking that was it.. Replaced batteries. Still no start  so he put a push button start under the hood. He wanted us to change ignition. We however found there was a fuse out that was causing it not to start. Simple fix. Labor 1.5 hrs mainly repairing the wires he had put the jump starter on. All good to go. He cost himself 2 batteries and a starter when it was a $3 fuse..
