Hello, my name is John.

This is a common problem and most frequently come back to the underhood fuse box. Poor connections occur insude the plastic fuse box and groups of fuses and relays quit working. The fuses will still be good because there are no shorts but poor connections cause the circuits to quit. You may even find some burnt or melted connectors. You might be able to turn all the lights on and wiggle some of the fuses and see the lights flicker on and off. If this happen then I would replace the underhood fuse box. If the lights still do not flicker then I would remove the fusebox for further inspection but I am confident that this is your fix. Please let me know if you need any further assistance from me on this problem.
