If the bulbs are all burnt then yes .. if not it's a wiring issue.

If the voltage regulator has gone out, which it sounds like it has, the hand warmer elements may also be fried if switch was left on.

so i replaced the voltage reulator and got the tail lights to work but nothing else. I did find a split wire on the wire harness right by the front bottom of engine by the cooling hoses . the wire just loopes from one side to the other on the wire harness. can i just replace that wire or do you have to replace the whole harness?
