I have checked on all of the fuses on the taillights but I will just have to take out the dash lights to see if they have been blown because of receiving a ticket for not having taillights...But it seems that sometimes they work and other times they do not so I will just have to check out the dash lights...

The dash and tail lights share a common fuse. I would put a new fuse in whether the old one looks good or not. They are that cheap! If that is not it, you could have a bad headlamp switch. The dash lights are on a separate wire from the tail/parking lamps as they are controlled by the rheostat.

I have a 91 Toyota. Tail lights and dash lights don't work.

The lincoln towncar just needed to replace the chip that was located under the dash and everything is fine at the present time. You probably need to check to see if there is an old chip in the toyota and may need to be replaced also.
