no brake, blinker or hazzard lights

This truck, a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500. The blinkers and brake lights and also the hazard lights do not work. The light on the back of the cab works as a tail light and the brake light works there only. I found that the hazard and the stop lamp maxi fuses under the hood were bad. I replaced both. The lights still don't work. The flasher fuse on the side dash fuse panel is good. I have power to both sides of the fuse posts when the maxi fuses are out. This is the first vehicle I have looked at that doesn't have a dedicated fuse to the blinkers. I have been looking quite a ways back in this forum and have not found any answers. Has anyone had a problem like this? Thanks Dan

Sounds like a possible hazard turn signal switch. Look at the diagram and follow the power out of the brake switch. Brake and turn signals are the same circuit. Also suspect is wiring up in a tilt strg column.

maby bad ground on the bed or broken wire somewhere behind the cab in the bed area.. i only say this because you say the 3rd brake light(on the cab) is working??? also did you check the bulbs on the bed if the maxi fuses were blown did it blow the bulbs?? just my 2 cents

Thanks for the replies. I took the turn signal switch out and did some jumping. Then I determined the flasher was bad. Changed the flasher cube out and everything works fine. Thanks again!
