Why do my turn signals work correctly oin front but both flashes in rear on 1988 gmc s15

Trace the wiring harness at the rear to see if its rubbed through anywhere. Check all plugs are fully home and plugs pins are in good condition, not corroded or wet. Next check the ground leads on both rear lights to see if its an earth fault sending current to both bulbs. Next, remove one bulb and see if the other functions normally. Then try other way round. See if that shows up any fault.
Also, if you have a trailer socket, check that for cross connection etc.

U1600- Electronic key-immobiliser system fault. Something is wrong with your key, it's no longer recognized properly by the safety system.
Have the immobilizer thoroughly inspected and if it's not it then the key's chip is failing - you will have to replace it.

What does tbc fault mean on a 2006 f350

TBC means Trailer Brake Controller fault.Check for moisture/water in the trailer plug connector at the back of your truck. Water/moisture will cause TBC error codes. Look for moisture at all connections to the plug and inside the plug.Trailer brake controller that is built into your dash. If you are hooked up to a trailer it could mean you are losing your connection or ground to the trailer. If you are not connected to a trailer it means there is a problem with your brake controller possibly a short in the wiring caising the fault code. ----- It means either A) you have a bad ground on your trailer. Or B) your cable on your trailer is too short and causing it to pull out of the plug or C) you have a short in the factory trailer harness wiring or the plug is gunked up. --------- get this possibilities checked.It will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

I have an Intergrated brake controller, i warning comes up trailer disonnected and sometimes TBC fault, no trailer hooked up , happens when i hit a bump, or hit the dashs. Please

TBC is trailer brake control. If it says there is a fault then i would say you have one of two issues. Either the controller is faulty or you have wires grounding out to the brake control wire going to the rear of the truck for your plug.

Dash lights do not work, is it a fuse? And if so, wich one?

The dash lights and tail lights are usually on the same fuse, look for the tail light fuse. You may want check the wiring at the rear of the vehicle, especially trailer light wires. If your truck has one of those add in connectors for trailer lights, that you plug into the wire harness, you may want to take that apart. They sometimes get corroded and short out.

check the rear plug on the bumper they are prone to water damage and corrosion, if you unplug the 7-way and four way plug from the body connector and test drive the vehicle this will tell you if the plug is the source of the problem.
