Fan yes, lights no

Hey folks, please help me out. My ceiling fan works fine all the time but recently my lights will not stay on. If i turn the switch off and back on, the lights will briefly come on and go out (everytime). It is operated by a wall switch that lights at night. Checked all the wiring of the ceiling fan but i am not very confident about going into the wall unit. Please give a few heads-up. Thanks.

First you need to check all connections at the fan and switch. Remove all wire nuts one by one and check for corrosion or loose wires including corrosion on the spring in the wire nut.
