Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

Is it all the marker lights and lic plate lights that are not working?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
all marker lights and license plate light
Expert:  Jay replied 1 month ago.

Did you check fuses?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I checked all fuses
Expert:  Jay replied 1 month ago.

Did you check the fuses in the IPDM? That is the fuse box behind the battery and under the wiper cowl.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
there is a total of three fuse boxes on the car I have checked every fuse in every box
Expert:  Jay replied 1 month ago.

Are you checking the fuses with a test light?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I have not checked any fuses with a test light so what specific use should I be concentrating on
Expert:  Jay replied 1 month ago.

You need to check fuses with a test light. That will help determine 2 things. First it will determine the fuse is getting power, and second will determine if it's good or not. Watch this video on how fuses are checked with a test light

You want to check fuses with the ignition on and lights on

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Is there a specific fuse for the side marker lights and tag light
Expert:  Jay replied 1 month ago.

Hang on, let me check..

Expert:  Jay replied 1 month ago.

That is the main fuse for the lights. If the fuse is getting power on each side of the fuse, then you have a bad IPDM

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
If the fuse for the main lights is bad then would just the side marker and tag light not work and all other lights work
Expert:  Jay replied 1 month ago.

Yes, parking lights and lic plate lights would not work, but directionals and brake lights would

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
What is the ipdm in where can I find it on the car
Expert:  Jay replied 1 month ago.

I sent you a link earlier where it is located.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I'm worried that if I go on unfamiliar links it would be unsafe for my phone and my data is there any way you can email me that information I would really appreciate it

I am sharing a link to the image in my dropbox. Personal contact is against our terms and services unless Premium Service is requested.

I don't like making my images public

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
A few months ago my radiator fans did not work due to the ipdm and it was replaced with a new one
Expert:  Jay replied 1 month ago.

You may simply have a blown fuse. The side markers are kind of known to build corrosion and can short out the fuse. Mainly the front two side markers.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
is this fuse labeled as the main lighting fuse
Expert:  Jay replied 1 month ago.

It is labeled Tail light fuse

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
the headlight fuses also control side marker and tag light
Expert:  Jay replied 1 month ago.

No, ignore that. That was another question. You only need to focus on the tail lamp fuse.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
if the fuse is bad my tail lights are not going to work either
Expert:  Jay replied 1 month ago.

Tail lights and side marker lights, and lic plate lights. They are all on that fuse. If the tail lights work, try changing the bulbs for the side markers one at a time. If they work as you change the bulb, It could simply be all bulbs.

It would not be the first time I have seen a coupe with all side markers out. Most people think they are reflectors when they don't work.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I'll give that a try
I hope that's it and that would have been the last thing I would have thought of but anything's possible thank you very much Jay
