Rear Running lights not working

I have no idea how long this has been happening. I noticed it when I was installing the LED board. My Rear runnung lights are not coming on. The signals work fine, and I have pulled the bulbs and they seem fine, both filaments are intact. The front ones are working fine. Is there anything I easily check? I'm a total idiot when it comes to electrical stuff.

If you have the stock rear lights they are ONLY directional. I had to get a special module to make mine running lights. Then you can’t use yellow must be red. Yellow is only for front running lights.

I have that kit, I like it. If you look at my photos about the Led rear light you can see them.
