What year/make is the vehicle? Something is suspect here. If the blinkers in the rear won't work, then the ones up front won't work either because there won't be enough load on the system to cause the flasher to work. What I think, is that you probably have one of your 1157 bulbs put in wrong and it is screwing up the system in the back. In fact, if you hit the brakes, I bet the front driving lights are illuminating. Get somebody to watch.

The most likely cause is a bad brake light switch (if none of the brake lights illuminate) but if its only one of the brake lights, try changing the bulb. Even if they still work as running or turn lights because they have a double filament and may still work partially, but not as brake lights.

What made your blinkers and brake lights stop working hazards to?

It could be a couple of things. On some vehicles, if one of the bulbs burn out in the taillight or turn signal circuit, both will stop working, but only on that side of the car. Some cars also have the brake lights wired through the hazard flasher, which if malfunctioning, can cause problems for both circuits, on both sides of the car.

You probably need to replace your brake light switch. It's near the top of the brake assembly, beyond a trim panel. The fact that all three brake lights don't work rules out problems in the multifunction switch (the cause of similar problems affecting only the two rear lights.)

Have you checked to see if the fuses are still good. It might also be that you just need to put new bulbs in. Worst case senerio is you have an electrical problem. Have you checked the earth contacts and cables? Poor earths cause strange effects.
