Default Tail light issues...

So my 1984 944 has been running great. I have driven it daily since the day I bought it. No issues except one...

When I bought the car the taillights worked perfect. By the time I got it home they didnt. I checked the ground wires and lights and couldnt figure it out then one day I was messing with the fuses and I didnt mean to but I had a screwdriver and I shorted the fuse next to the tail light fuse with the connection of the tail light fuse. So i shorted one to the other and the lights came on... I dont know how to explain this. I guess there is no power even getting to the fuse.

Me dash lights downt work either unless I short it.

Hope that doesnt confuse you all like it did me.

Anyway this could just be a relay issue? Any ideas? I would like to try and fix it myself before taking it to a shop that I know will charge hundreds for what I think is a simple fix.

Sounds like you need to drop the fuse panel down and start checking connections ,etc.
