Hello,Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to assist you with your concern today. The first thing to check are the fuses/breakers for those systems. Bulbs can go bad as well as the switch itself and thus you will need to use a voltmeter on the switch to confirm power to the switch and through when on, this is also to check correct voltage is getting to the switch. In many cases the switches have a common power to the breakers/fuses then each it's own power to each switch. This means if you only have some and not all this is usually at the breakers/fuses or connection/wiring after on the way to the switch. Power into a switch but not out when on indicates a bad switch.
