Default 2001 1500 - No turn signals, brakes, reverse lights

Just bought this truck yesterday . Drove it home 'bout 100 miles and everything worked great. Decided to go for a spin later last night and the turn signals, brake lights, and rear lights all quit working. The reverse lights don't work either. I have checked the fuses, some wiring here and there but I have no clue what it wrong.

The guy I bought it from said he changed out the instrument panel, and the lights to it were flickering/pulsating when I turned on the headlights. I have taken the panel off this morning and did not notice anything obvious, but then again I really don't have any idea what I'm looking at as far as electrical stuff goes.

I'm guessing there is some short somewhere, but wouldn't have the slightest idea of where to even begin looking.

Thanks in advance for any advice/help.

After reading several threads on this forum and checking things again on my truck, I was able to fix the problems for $25. I found 2 fuses that were blown and several had oversized/undersized fuses. Changed all those to the correct amps and everything worked as it should, except for the brake lights.

I checked the trailer wiring, which looked like was installed by undertrained monkeys, and disconnected the wiring and re-attached it to the original plug. Everything is now working.
