That is usually caused by a bad turn signal switch although I haven't looked at the wiring diagram. The lower 2 brakes lights have to pass through that switch so it can cancel the brake lights for turn signals.


We offer help in answering questions, clarifying things or giving advice but we are not a substitute for an on-site inspection by a professional.

The third brake light and stop lamps share the same circuits on this guy. Need to check for power and ground in the socket to see what is missing.

Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.
