I've recently had the same problem. Once I hit the TIPM and the lights worked the next time I tried them. I replaced the bulbs but still the same. Had the battery checked (original stock battery that says not to open or add water), and they said it had a bad cell. Only about 440 amps rather than the original 600. Put in a new battery and still no lights. A day or two later, I hit the TIPM and tried the lights again. Success! And they've worked ever since (keeping fingers crossed). Eight days so far.

If they continue to work, my thought is that the original battery was no longer providing enough amps for the TIPM to do all it needed, so it chose to cut power to the lights. The new battery probably didn't come with much of a charge, so it took a couple of days of commutes to build it up and now all is fine.

Mine had the original bulbs and battery, so all were getting a bit old.
