Your tail light / parking light circuit fuse may be bad. Replace it. Then, if that doesn't work, check to see if you have power out of the switch to the circuit. If you do, then you have a short somewhere between the switch and the lights.

Yup...that means there's a problem with the parking light circuit. If your fuse is OK, then it's time to check current through the wiring circuit.

Well, if ya gotta ask, then you need someone who knows how. It would take a LONG time to train you how to test electrical circuits here on the forum. You need some basic electrical knowledge, a wiring diagram with voltage values, a multi-meter and some experience with testing procedures.
