    I have another situation idk if u guys have had it happen before...my tail lights don't light up but the brake lights work and tonight I might have to go and plow snow at night but I was wondering if I could buy something temporary to make my rear visible at night like at a Walmart or auto parts store

    By the time you rig something you could probably fix tailights or worst case scenario just tap a 12 volt fused lead right into them. Have you checked the fuse? Front parking lights work? Headlight switch? Maybe jump wire for parking lights at switch?
