Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!There are quite a few things that could cause the lights to not work, especially depending on what the vehicle is. It may be a wiring issue or a blown fuse, a module issue, possibly a failure in the integrated power module if equipped. I'm assuming that all lights worked and then stopped together.What year and model is the vehicle?
