It is probably your turn sigl switch (located in the stearing column). I know of others who have had this problem. I had this on my 1998 Lumina and am currently having it on 87 S-10. Will wait for warmer weather to repair.

Brake lights rear blinkers quit working when turn signal is on flashes really fast

You simply have a burned out bulb or bulbs. With the key turned on turn on the directional for the left side and then the right side. Typically one bulb is blown and the opposite side works normally. Observe the normal side and note which is the flashing bulb. It is the flashing bulb on the other (malfunctioning) side that needs to be replaced. To replace the bulb you must remove the entire brakelight assembly, which isn't difficult. Open the trunk and locate the electrical harness that lines up with the brakelight assembly. Near the harness, locate the two (possibly three) nuts or wingnuts that attach the brakelight assembly to the car. Once the nuts are removed, the assembly can be pulled off the rear of the car. After replacing the bulb, be sure to test the operation of the new bulb before reassembling everthing.

No brake lights on my 02 blazer, i have running, turn, and hazard lights. replaced brake switch and nothing still. theres a auto start system on the truck that came on it when bought used. its hacked in...

Check for 12 volts coming into the brake light switch. If you have that you should have 12 volts exiting the switch when the brake pedal is depressed. If you have that and the center brake light works you have a problem with the turn signal. If the center light doesn't work you probably have an open in the brake light circuit between the turn signal switch and light bulbs. If there is no voltage at the brakelight switch you have an open circuit before the switch. I'm assuming the fuse is good.

The headlights work but turn signals don't and hazards don't work either and brakelights still don't come on.

one bad bulb will be your problem. Doesn't matter which side. If one bulb is bad in the front or in the back, left or right, then you have the problem you are having. Check your fuses first. Little easier to change a fuse than a bulb.

I need to change the Lightbulb on the 3rd

normally there 2 screws on the lense, usually going through into the body. phillips head or torx head. just take those out and pull the unit straght out, and the bulb is right there. if you have a cargo light on it, those bulbs will usually be on the outboard side of the brakelight, on either side of it. once you change the buld, wipe the new one with rubbing alcohol to remove the oil from your skin. the bulb will last much longer if you do that

Brakelights are not working, only the high brake light works

First thing to check is fuses, i know one lamp works, but maybe the two main lamps have their own fuse, doesn't hurt to check.

Getting at the bulbs is easy, open your rear hatch (door) and you will see a few screws holding each rear lamp in place, once all screws are removed the lamp needs to be carefully pulled out, there will be some sort of clip or clips holding it in place, so don't just yank it off, slowly pull on it until loose.

It's a good safety precaution to disconnect your battery just in case. Then to remove the bulb, normally its a quarter or half turn and the bulb comes right out for you to look at. You can use a multimeter, and (with battery connected) turn lights on and see if there is power at the bulb. if there is replace the bulb. if not, then you have other issues; wiring, fuses ... could be many different things.

I hope this helps you. Sometimes you can see the filament in the bulb is broken, but a lot of the time the bulb can look fine but have a broken connection (aka an Open) elsewhere in the bulb. Get a battery and wires, connect them to the bulb, see if you can get light.

Replaced brakelight switch ,still no brake lights, and tailights

Check to make sure you have the correct bulb in them. Even though the parts store may have had a part number, sometimes they don't get them right. If those are correct check the relays and or the socket itself.
