You say the circuit breakers (I assume you mean fuses) appear to be fine; they may look okay but sometimes they can burn open near the case edge and an open circuit may not be apparent. You really need to get a multimeter and check for 12 volts at the bulbs. If not there you should use the meter to check the fuses for continuity (ohms check).
