99 Dodge 1500. The turn signale, flashers and brake lights all stopped worhing at the same time. I wasn't pulling a trailer at the time. Any ideas what could be wrong?
Thanks for the help

Check the corresponding fuse for those. I believe they are on the same circuit. If its not a fuse then check the light relays. I think its just a fuse.

Upon replacement, if it keeps blowing fuses then you should start looking for shorts.

I checked the fuses and replaced one that had nothing to do with lights and still not working.

Always start with the simplest solution first, and that would be the fuse. Since you already checked the fuse, with no success, I'd look at your trailer wiring connection. Looking for a common connection here, and you mentioned a trailer so I'm assuming you have trailer wiring, maybe some poor connections came loose. Do your front lights work? If so, it's a stretch, but you might replace the rear bulbs.

front headlights work and tail lights work

Brake, turn & hazard are all the same element of the bulbs, tail lights are a different element. If the element is out, your turn signals (in front and on the dash) should either stay on, or blink rapidly - I think it's stay on when the rear bulbs are out. If this is the case, replace both bulbs. Do your front turn signals work at all? If they work normally, I'd go back to the trailer wire connections.

Did you check both fuse boxes? On my 2000 Dodge, there is one on the side of the dash by the driver's door and another one under the hood in a box behind the battery.

You are most welcome. I went nuts looking for it a few years ago and the dealer (70 miles away) told me about it.
