Did you locate correct fuse to those lights?
Are you sure using correct bulbs?
Are the bulbs/lights you are referring to as "tail lights" dual or single filament type?
We need to determine which lights exactly you are referring to, in order to help you troubleshoot.

Hey Mike, I know this is hair pulling..You need to replace the fuel pump filter/strainer.. and maybe the fuel pump..the fuel pump determines how much pressure goes through the entire system ... BUT FIRST.. determine (if you can) where the metal flakes came from..(debris is probably from a gas station.. over the years.. I learned NOT to get gas right after heavy rains - guess why?) ,,do you still have the old fuel filter?? carefully cut it open and see whats inside.. (unroll the pleats) if you see a lot of metal flakes like in the tank,, you know they were caught..

run the fault codes
not running indicates that the air/ fuel ratio is incorrect for the ambient temperature so you should be checking the ambient temp sensor /baro sensor and coolant temp sensor

sounds like the lockup converter is not releasing when you stop, like stopping with a stick shift and not pushing in the clutch. lockup solenoid most likely. Could just disconnect the lockup sol. (won't lock up at all) or replace the solenoid.

Call any good parts store and they have pictures in the front of their belt catalogs that show the routing diagrams of each car.

It's only suppose to start in park or neutral !

If this happens only in the morning the culprit may be moisture in the distributor cap.

If this problem has slowly gotten worse over time then a vacuum leak could be the cause. Check the EGR first

Below are two methods to find that

If all that is good, it may be a bad fuel filter, fuel pump, bad electrical connection or the IAC needs to be cleaned. If it was the last one however, you would expect a rough idle.

If it's been a while since you have replaced the fuel filter, it wouldn't be a bad idea to go ahead and just do it.

If your fuel is okay (no water on the bottom of your tank... and your intake (carbs or fuel injection) equipment is still mostly bolted securely to the engine (both reasonably assured by mostly working... when it is working: most of the time)... you are probably experiencing an intermittent blockage of the EXHAUST SYSTEM...

You may be experiencing the early warning. I got marooned twice: rusted or rotted parts... cut loose for a total failure.

First - by a blocked muffler in Fresno (great shop: Cal State Mufflers & Brake)... ''75 Ranchero GT... I think (been a very long while)

Second - by a catalytic converter FIASCO... Horrible/EXPENSIVE Clown City Jag dealer, Walnut Creek (my opinion: never forget).

Both ultimately left me standing by the roadside... marooned pretty good.

Don't wait see if your local friendly Ye Old muffler shoppe has any clever diagnostics... or wait for the catastrophe...

Your choice but keep a good book in the car
(pack a lunch (survival equipment too)).

Good luck
