When the turn signal is used both left and right rear flashers function.  When the brake is applied, the flashing stops.

    I'm waiting for the flasher but I believe it is the problem.  When I jiggle the flasher relay I can get it to work properly.  It is not just a contact problem though.  Thanks for the direction!

Where is the stop lamp or brake lamp fuse and panel for a 2007 cadillac cts?


Kevin , this is a very complex way of stoplamp control , I will post GM service Description and Operation of how they work an let you deside if you want to tackle this ! Do the center high mount brake lights work ?
The brake pedal position sensor is a resistive device used to sense the action of the driver's application of the brake pedal. The brake pedal position sensor provides an analog signal that will increase as the brake pedal is pressed.
The brake pedal position sensor receives both a 5-volt reference voltage and a low reference signal from the electronic brake control module (EBCM). When the brake pedal is pressed, a variable signal is applied from the brake pedal position sensor to the EBCM through the brake sensor signal circuit. The fuse block left rear supplies battery positive voltage to the bass relay switch through the BASS fuse. One side of the bass relay coil is permanently grounded at G402. The EBCM supplies voltage to the bass relay coil upon receiving the signal from the brake pedal position sensor. The switch contacts of the bas relay close and battery positive voltage is applied through the bas relay switch to the center high mounted stop lamp (CHMSL), and to the turn signal/hazard flasher module through the stop lamp switch signal circuit. The ground for the CHMSL is applied from G402. The turn signal/hazard flasher module then supplies voltage to the left and right stop lamps in the tail lamp assemblies that have ground at G401 and G402. For export vehicles the stop lamps receive battery positive voltage directly from the bass relay.

There could be a code stored in the EBCM - electronic brake control module - DTC B3903 Stop Lamp Relay Circuit
DTC C0278 Brake Pedal Position Sensor Not Calibrated
there are several other codes that pertane to the brake lights . you could try Replaceing the bas relay !

Left bleaker and break light not working. Turn signal works bleaks faster than right side.


Has the vehicle been in an accident on the left rear side. First check the bulb to be sure it is not defective, trade it out with the side that works properly to test. If the bulb works well then My thought are you may have a shorted wire. The turn signal flasher works by heat build up within the flasher the heat is caused by the load of the bulbs, the load heats the metal spring causing it to open the circuit then as quickly as it cools down the circuit closes again lighting the bulbs.
There is also a possibility of a defect in the turn signal mechanism on the steering column. The turn signal switch on many models does three different things on many models that use the same bulb element / or bulb for brake and turn on rear of vehicle. It controls the circuit for brake light by sending power both left and right side rear when turn signal is in neutral position then when turn signal is in left turn the switch cancels brake light power to left side rear and supplies flasher power to left side while maintaining brake light supply to the right side rear, and so on opposite when the right turn is chosen on turn signal switch. The turn signal indicators on the dash normally run off the same circuit as front turn signal bulb only which is also controlled by turn signal switch. Front has turn signals but no brake light.
I think there is an additional load on the left side rear turn circuit and it could be either a wire that is shorted or the turn signal switch if the same bulb element is used for both functions.
Often times if trailer lighting is connected the flasher will also blink a little faster because of the extra load of additional bulbs.

Rear turn signal probem


Have you done any mods lately? Are you using the correct replacement bulbs? Make sure the wiring is not crossed.

1991 Nissan Pathfinder left turn signal comes on when I apply the brake


check that all your bulbs are correct and are making contact. this commonly happens when a wrong bulb is installed in a socket. the other reason this happens is a bad ground, and one bulb uses another as a ground path. I would start at the rear left light and check that everything is good there, then move on to the front. 99 percent of these kinds of problems are at the lights themselves.

1999 oldsmobile aurora side marker light flash on and off when the car is turned off


Power is appliedat all times through the 20A HZRD/ STOP LPS fuse in the right rear junction block. The ORG wire connects to the hazard flasher and the BRN output wire connects to the A5 terminal of the TURN/HAZARD switch assembly. When the HAZARD switch is engaged, power is applied to the front and rear turn signals and the left and right turn indicators in the instrument cluster, causing them to flash. Obviously an open fuse, a defective flasher, a defective HAZARD switch, or a defective TURN/HAZARD switch assembly will prevent the lamps from flashing. If the turn signals operate normally, they are not the problem.

Left rear turn signal and brake light dont work


You have a broken wire to the turn/brake light portion of the light as they use the same wire. Or where the plug goes into the light assy could be bad. Torsion mount lights are horrible and you should think about replacing with a universal light that you can wire direct.
