1996 F150 4X4 5.8L Auto Trans I have no turn signals or brake light except brake light on the top of the cab. I checked all the fuse's and they are fine.The multi function switch has given me some problem in the past when it is cold (below 20) (getting turn signal to work, turning right) but never affected the brake lights. Also notice the 4 way flasher are not working either.

Kindly check the wiring of your car . Also carbon deposit on wires may lead to this , so clean all this connections with spirit. And then also check all the fuses again , as it might have happened one of their wire is broken so they are not active.

Check at the light socket in the rear, where your lights don't work. You need a test light or a voltage meter, and check to see that you have a groun there, power for your parking light, and power to the brake light. You should have power for the parking lights seeing that it works, and a ground. Just verify that your power for the brakes is getting to the bulb, or not. Just a good place to start.
And you are correct that if the third brake light works (top) your brake light switch is fine.
I ended up taking the car to an auto mechanic which does electrical troubleshooting. the issue was a turn signal switch even though the turn signals work. Thought the resolution would help someone else out before paying $200 to fix.
