oh sorry, just re read your original post. :oops: So no lights apart from one rear and main beam (any brake lights ? ). I'm sure someone who knows about electrics and multi-meters will be along soon to help you out.

When the van arrived and you contacted the person who sold you the van, what did they say about the problem with the lights?

Worth checking all the plugs at the back of the fusebox are properly seated.
Also the connections on the back of the light switch.
Failing that, it could be your light switch that's faulty as all head nad tail lights except main beam flash go through it.

Check that the parking lights work on both left and right hand side. If they do then I would suspect that the light switch is faulty. If they don’t then check earths. The fact that you have only one rear side light working would suggest multiple faults.
