I would be willing to bet it’s the body control module. It’s controls virtually every aspect of the vehicles systems including head lights and running lights. Don’t know of a test for them other then replacing and see it that’s the problem. How I know, had a Dodge Durango that all the lights went out on while driving then turned back on, later that week all the lights including interior and dash started flashing randomly. That’s what it turned out to be.

I had a similar issue where my tail lights and blinkers stopped working. I fixed it by disconnecting and removing the trailer light harness and reconnected the taillight assembly harness.
