Default Signal Lights & Brake Lights Don't Work

I recently purchased a 2003 Ford Ranger 4X4 Automatic with the 4.0 Engine. The signal lights and the brake lights both stopped working. I checked and replaced the fuses but the lights still don't work. Anything else I should check?

Brake light switch could need to be replaced. It is mounted on/near the brake pedal

As far as the signals did you check all the connections and the bulbs.

The brake light above the cab still works. Do I still need to replace the switch? I haven't check all the connections. Is there one plug that would cause all the signal lights to stop working?

There was a short in the steering column and when the tilt wheel was moved this caused the lights to stop working. Once the short was fixed the lights started working again.
