Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You may have a wiring issue or the problem may simply be blown bulbs. I would have assumed you would have started with replacing the bulbs but it wasn't mentioned so I can't be sure. A loss of ground to the circuit board would explain a loss of multiple functions at the same time.

What year and model is the vehicle?
Were the bulbs replaced?
