You may have lost the ground. Does the brake light circuit work? Or is everything out on the tail? You may be at the point where you need a volt meter and start troubleshooting checking for voltage. Vehicle wiring is never fun. Check the sockets to vehicle ground, if you have 12vdc you found the problem. I usually splice into the harness and ground it right to chassis.
