Check fuses first. You have a service manual?

Do you have a voltmeter? Best bet would be to check voltage at light sockets and work back - though that can be hard in an enclosed setup.

If it's suddenly all lights - it very well could be a fuse. But the question of why the fuse blew should be asked.

It can also be an oxidized connection. I like to use emory cloth or board to clean contacts, followed by a burst of Deoxit (great stuff) and then use dielectric grease on contacting surfaces to reduce future oxidation. Some people dislike that method but I do it frequently - as do other manufacturers who know what they're doing.

These things are tough to tshoot but start with obvious first.
