no tail lights, brake lights, dome light, rear left and right turn signals

So i am driving home from work i get pulled over for no rear lights. when i got home i checked to see what all did not work and i have no tail lights, brake lights, dome light, rear left and right turn signals or hazard lights. i have not checked the fuses yet and i am running LED rear lights. apparently the fuses are separate for the left and right side and the dome light is a entirely different fuse. any ideas on what it is and how to fix it? anyone experience something similar? i really need to get this fixed in the next couple of days. BTW 08 jeep jk

Maybe bad multi function switch. You sure you have no brake lights?

Is there a rear ground point that supplies all of the rear lights with ground? I'd begin by checking for continuity between the light socket ground and the frame or negative terminal of the battery. Determine which side of the circuit you don't have either power or ground. Since all of those lights come from different sources, it's likely to me that you have a ground issue. Hopefully it's an easy fix.

Most of the exterior light functions run through the instrument cluster and tipm, have you done any work around either? I would check power and ground at the light sockets to see what you are missing.

same issue with tail lights - no ticket

Hate to sound ignorant what is the TIPM and where do I find? I am surprised there is no error codes for this

If fuse and grounding are OK, Then it could be the supply of electricity check for any loose connection like relay and terminals.
