Electrical Problem

Recently I turned on the rear bank of lights in my 2009 Everest. The 4 lights were dim, when I turned them off and back on, no lights. I checked the fuses and breakers which were all okay. There is power to the switch and the switch works since I switched the wires to the front bank to that switch and no problem. I haven't put the meter on the lights themselves since there are 8 screws in each of 4 lights. Any suggestions?

All I can see are the white and black to each fixture and the in and out at the switch. Where would the ground be?

check the neutral (white) wires to make sure none are loose anywhere. a loose neutral will cause a number of strange problems.
