I don't agree with above. Bulbs are always wired directly to ground.

I'd check my charging voltage; attach DC voltmeter across battery terminals and run engine at about 3500 rpm, and read voltage. If over about 14.5 volts, then bad alternator/regulator.

Had similar happen in an old Toyota, all bulbs burned out except headlights and stop lights: bad alternator.
