Have you checked the fuses? This would be the first step. fyi, there are fuses under the dash and under the hood.

cool Re: HELP!! all my blinkers and brake lights stop working

yeah im going to have to agree with thefonz with that! i had the same thing happen to me and it was the fuse in the dash...put a new one in and see how it works, if it works good job but if it blows again you got your self a bad wire somewere along the line.

If you replaced fuses, were they blown?
If you turn on the turn signals or emergency flashers, do they work in the front of the vehicle?

I had some kind of animal eat through several wires in the engine compartment. Fortunately, they were out in the open so it was easy to solder new ones in place of the missing pieces. This was quite a surprise, I have never had it happen before even though we have a fair amount of wild small animals around here.
