Default Taillight not working 2012 Switchback 800

Any thoughts? Brake light works but no running tail light. I get no volt reading on running light test. I put my LED tail light in friends SB 800 & it works.

Wire probably rubbed and has been broken. That's my best guess. Follow and check the wires first.

Still trying to figure this out. Continuity test on wires seem to be fine. I'm now looking at the DC Chassis Relay & wondering if I should replace that. Again, brake light works but running tail light does not. I put my tail light in my buddy' Pro R & it works fine so I'm running out of ideas.

I could be wrong. But I though the lights were part of the A/C circuit, not the D/C.

Do you have voltage at DC power test plug? Tailight feeds from the same DC power splice as the test plug. I attached a wiring diagram which I think is for your sled in case you don't have one.
