My rear lights don't come in even though I have automatic lights - how can I solve this problem?

When turning the ignition on my car, the automatic light control becomes active, but the tail lights do not work in this mode. I can't find a way to solve this problem?

This reads as if the Daytime Running Lights are coming on at the front when you start the car but not the rear lights. That's normal. You have to switch the lights on separately or switch them to auto for all the lights to work.
