Check the bulb that was installed in that left rear socket for proper type. also check the wiring to the socket.. (likely a bulb issue)

When break pressed turn signal turns stays on and doesnt flash


My first guess would be a ground problem. The bulbs are mounted in plastic sockets and grounded to the car by a black wire. If one socket is not grounded it will try to ground thru a different socket.
I would check for voltage and ground on each socket in the back.

2001 Toyota Tocama 1) Right turn signal comes on when I brake, it does not flash it just comes on. 2) If I have it turned on, it will not flash whilel the brake pedal is pressed. 3) When I turn on left...


If you have an aftermarket trailer towing plug, that's the first place to look. There is probably a short in the wires, and when you push the brake, the signal light comes on. If not, then it will be a bare wire somewhere, probably at the back where gravel stones can hit them.
