Did you check the fuses again? Sounds like you have an exposed wire or a pinched wire. Sounds like whatever made that bulb blow out, has now made everything blow out. If fuses are all good, check your ground wire. If that has fallen off, that would cause all of your lights to not work.

Make sure you are putting in the proper bulb. Check sockets for the bulbs for deterioration. If that happens the wires could touch internally and not work and blow fuses and such Good Luck

I put two new fuses in just found it odd that the other lights were working and you could see the light was blown it had a dark spot on it the only thing i did was change the bulb now nothing works all the other lights still work fine except for the rear right tail light signal and brake and the bulb i used is the one the owners manual said to put in it 3057

What I would do now is just take out the tail light again and have someone step on the brake pedal. Then I would start wiggling the wires around and see if the lights suddenly came on. The only other option is to take one of those 12 volt needle test lights and start going backwards from the light until you find power. Probably a bad ground wire.
