Can a Bad Fuse Cause Rear Lights to Go Out?

My passenger side tail light/brake light/directional all went out at the same time. The only thing that still works is the back up white light.

Since I dont really relish the idea of trying to change the bulb(s), I was thinking maybe it could be a fuse?

Nope fuse is for all rear lights including license plate except reverse bulbs. Fuse is also for instrument panel back lighting.

If it's just the one side it's likely the bulb, they really aren't hard to change though

By reading the owners manual, it sounds like its a project and a half to change the bulb!

Coupe or sedan? Either way it really doesn't take much
