Taillight not working

My tailightsdont seem to work right. When I turn my head lights on my right tail dont not come on, only when I brake. When I turn my turn signal left it gives a loud buzzing sound but my right will work sometimes. The onther times both will work until I brake then neither work. All of my headlights do not seem to work either. What is up with it? Are they all connected together?

The only time i was with similar problems just by replacing the light switch on the dash it all went ok.
I donīt know why but it did.
Find one 9000 to swap test and check if itīs from there

Good advice. Also, check that the bulb is OK, it is a dual-filament bulb, so one can be working and the other not. You can tell by looking at it closely. Take a test lamp to the tail area to be sure that you are getting current correctly. If not, your problem is elsewhere.

Swap the left and right bulb and see if the problem follows the bulb. The wiring on the rear taillights can get corroded and holders aren't great, have one that I ended up swapping out rear holder to solve the problem.

I dont have any saabs around my area. I believe im the only 9000 around. Lol. I looked and saw that the the driver side taillight curcuit board is bad. Would this cause the ptoblms?
