This happened on my car-it turned out to be a blown headlight fuse(15amp) and the hazzard switch on the left side instrument panel. Went to a junk yard and bought a new switch and replaced the blown fuse and ta-dah taillights I also replaced the dimmer switch also.

1) operator error. check dimmer switch setting. 2) all bulbs faulty, check and replace as needed 3) bad (burned or corroded) headlight switch. expect taillights to be out, your question indicated this is not so 4) loose connection at electrical connector to helight switch. Try moving tilt column and wiggling connector
