First, are all four lights affected? Front and rear?

I would start by completely cleaning the fuse box contacts and fuse  
ends. Check to see if you have power coming out of the fuse box at  
all the contacts.  Keep in mind some of the contacts will only be  
"live" with the key in the on position.  (The headlights are not  
fused all the other lights are fused).  I remove the fuse box and  
clean it by bead blasting the contacts.  Also check the back of the  
box to make sure it is in good shape and the metal contacts are not  
coming in contact with the body of the car.  If they are, a piece of  
roofing paper cut to fit under the fuse box will cure the problem  
until you can get another fuse box.

Also make sure you have good grounds on everything.

Next I would check to see if power is getting to the switch on the  
steering column and if it is coming back out of that switch at the  
proper places.

Let me know what you find ;)
