There's more than one bulb, and unlikely that they all burned out at once. I'd be checking, in order:

- Fuses
- Connectors (under the trunk)
- Grounds

And then the switches.

Right. I would have put them up in there, but being that both front and rear are not functioning, chances are less (but not zero) that both switches are faulty.
