If they all stopped at th same time, chances are there is a broken wire. I hate to say it, but you need to start at the problem area (rear lights) and follow the wiring checking for damage. THere is a good chance there is a plug that is disconnected under the car or broken.

Yea the top light works but not the front turn signals. I was looking at the questions that another person left you guys and she had the same problem as I do and she said she bought this electrical spray and sprayed it on the hazzard light button and it made everything work again. So I did the exact same thing but I only used a little bit and it did start workin only for one min. I turned on my turn signals and it worked but then when I got to the next stop sign it quit again so mabe this info is helpful to you. Let me know please thanks.

Yep, I bet your problem is in the turn signal switch.

You can either get a new one, or try using more of the contact cleaner, but read the can, some electrical cleaners will melt plastic.
