2002 L-Series 2.2L Sedan
Dizzy No tail lights, dash lights, auto headlights but have brake lights

I had an idiot change my timing chain because one of the guides broke. Well, it still wouldn't start so he removed all my fuses to "try to reset the computer". Long story short I ended up having it towed to a shop and as a result of this idiot not setting the timing before trying to start the car, I needed a new motor. So, got the motor swapped, now I don't have any tail lights, auto head lights, reverse lights, but I have break lights. I have checked all fuses and bulbs, all seem ok. When I got my car back, the first idiot had some parts in my backseat and the shop didn't mess with them. I found a black wire (ground wire?). Any idea where it would go? Could this be why I don't have lights?

We could give you advice based on our hunch but clearly this is serious & you don't want to mess with your electrical system. Take it back to the shop that replaced your engine & insist that they put everything back together, test & then deliver a safe car.

And that wire most likely isn't factory. If it's solid copper (not stranded) wire, it won't last as car wiring. Stranded wire harnesses allows a certain amount of flexing throughout its lifetime. Solid copper wire isn't as flexible and will break from metal fatigue sooner or later. It may have been used as fish wire....
