Do NOT unhook any battery cables when the engine is running as this in some cases can cause serious damage to the electrical system. Check for 12 volts (battery charged of course) at the big wire on the alternator engine off and key off. If you dob't have 12 volts then a fuse or fusible link is open and the battery is not being charged by the alternator. Also have the alternator tested.

if u got lights with a jumper then the solution seems easy , its a wiring issue. follow the wires with your jumper wire testing a few inches apart until you find it.
