I guess the best thing you can do is get your test light out and start from the back and chase it until you find the fault.

I've had this issue for 2 weeks. Not the fuse, just a broken wire.

Turns out, GM spliced the running light wires just behind the tail light. Pull the tail light completely off of the truck. The bulbs will hang in the wire harness. Just follow the brown wires, those are the running lights. There will probably be a broken wire right there. If not, just trace those two brown wires (one from each light). Mine broke right where they spliced together.

Hope this helps.
