Default 4Runner headlight and signal problems (nothing will turn on)?

Our 1994 4Runner suddenly started having headlight issues. The driving lights will not turn on, the rider side headlight also won't turn on, and the side signals will also not turn on. Only the front signals in the bumper and the right passenger headlight (along with all the other lamps in the car) will turn on.

All the fuses have been check and also the bulbs have been checked and replaced. Help! Don't have any idea on where to check next!

The wires connecting the headlight cluster to the battery and the controls may have become loose, causing the lights to malfunction. You can check this by opening the hood and looking at the back of the headlight cluster and ensuring that the connections are tight. The most common place for the connection to be broken is the socket where the bulb is installed. Check that first, then try to borrow an OBD II scanner. If you don't know what that is, don't bother and just take it to the dealer for analysis.
