checked fuses?
if you undo the head light relay on the bulk head in the engine bay there are fuses under there,

The headlight relay should not have any influence on the tail lights.

You need to check fuses and connections in the main fuse box.

Ta for the replies, swapped bulbs and checked fuses, got dipped beam working now on both sides, but have parking front and rear failing on one side, fuse box under bonnet looking tired even though fuses are fine, Methinks disconnect Batt, take out fuse box, clean and maybe re-solder some of the shoe connectors.

A quid says its corrosion between the fuses and the box.
