Check your fuses before anything.

Bet you have a ground issue somewhere if both reverse and turn signals dont work. Rear turn signals im assuming? Best bet is to find a wiring diagram to see what those circuits share.

Is this only in the back or all around?

Best case scenario, you have two separate problems.

If your fuses are good, I'd start by tracing the turn signals. See if you have power at the flasher. If so, it may be a bad flasher. (Your hazards working proves that the DRL module and bulbs/sockets are good.) If no power at the flasher, then you should check the power going in to the turn signal switch and keep going back from there.
