The tail light wiring harness in the cargo area is not protected very well. As a result it may become damaged due to normal wear a tear. This damage can causing some or all of the rear lights to stop working.
One or both secondary air injection check valves may become restricted causing poor air flow resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light.
