You are absolutely, positively sure they quit working after this, OR you noticed it only afterward?

Well, first things first, check the bulbs. I don't care if you think they're good, you need to check them.

Done any "mods" on the tail lights at all? Both bulb holder brackets havegrounds on them. Need to be clean and tight.

With the bulb holder out, see if you get 12 volts at the back up light socket with the key on and in reverse. Also check at the fuse under the same conditions.

Not at the socket, then check the blue wire with the brown tracer for voltage in the right side, and blue with a red tracer for the left.

I bet you find something back there. Going further means getting dirty, but if we need to I can explain more tomorrow.
