Yet my brake lights and my hazard lights are working. I have changed the fuses and the bulbs yet nothing is working. What could this be?

I have changed the fuses and the bulbs yet nothing has changed. Only my brake lights and hazard lights are working. Also my dashboard isnt illuminating when my lights are on.

The taillights are linked to the dash illumination and front combination lights. You have a fault with either the fuse, taillight relay, light switch or its wiring.

Have you checked the fuses?

You would need a test light or DVOM to test the power supply to the switch and output from switch to see which is causing the problem.

Sorry I am not able to provide any costing as prices ranges region to region and the best thing to do is to check at local parts stores for an accurate quote.

What is the name of this switch, just so I can investigate prices?

It is commonly called the multifunction switch.
