It's either a bad ground or a short. Think of any repairs you might have done recently to see if you may have sliced a wire. Check for power at the bulbs and work backwards toward the switches.

Your going to love this one.I did not plug them in to the main harness.DA! I had left them unplugged untill all the wiring could be checked out to prevent trouble.I even looked last week and I had plugged the parking lamps and headlight plugs together to keep them clean.So it looked like I had plugged them in.I found it as soon as I started testing for power.This car has taken to long when you forget something like that.Of course I remembered as soon as I found it.It must be old age.
