If just the tail lamps don't work, and the front park lamps do, it is most likely the bulbs burnt out. A bad ground, blown fuse, broken wires, bad switch are other possible but less likely causes.

Why does my 2005 Toyota sienna xle left sliding door only open a few inches then close It will not fully open?

Just a thought. I have a Toyota Sienna also. The gas compartment is on the left side. If the gas compartment is even popped then there is a safety mechanism that will not let the door open. Your compartment might be closed, but you could be having a mechanical problem with the compartment that would cause the safety mechanism to come on. Simple, but could just be it.
