There are a couple problems you have to check in order to make sure what your actuall problem is. Your first is the fuse, second is the bulb is blown and then third you might have a short in the wiring between the fuse and the connector plate. If both tail lights do not work you might want to check the fuse first. Once that is replaced, check to make sure that all of the bulbs are the correct bulbs and are not blown. If you have done both and you still don't have any lights you will need to trace as much of the wirng as possible to check and see if it's pinched or cut anywhere, if it is you will need to replace this section of wire with OEM replacement. Depending on the year and make of the vehicle you can get replacement tail light assemblies at parts stores or junk yards.

Generally, dash lights and tail lights are on the same fuse so that if the tail fuse blows you'll know. When the tail light was "smashed", it shorted out the circuit and blew the fuse. You need to fix the tail light before you can get the dash lights to work.
