1967 GMC 2500 brake lights flash on and off except when blinkers are turned on. How do I fix it ?

Sounds like you need a new turn signal switch. And a new flasher relay, just in case your old one got overused! Those little flasher relay cylinders were real cheap back in the day, about $2. It's under the dash around the steering column, probably in a little metal clip (yea, real metal). Don't confuse it with the hazards flasher, both look the same. You can hear and feel the turn blinker flasher when it is doing its thing, and same with the hazards flasher, if you want to check. The clicking is the make and break contact of the circuit to cause a blinking bulb.

The reason I say you need a new turn signal switch is because the brake light signal wire is routed through the turn signal switch before it goes to the rear brake light bulbs. It is inside the turn signal switch that the brakes and rear turn signal lights are made to share the same filaments inside the bulbs. The brake lights don't pass through the flasher, but somehow your turn switch is sending power to the flasher. If the wiring under your dash has not been radically altered, really messed up, then your turn signal switch has got infected with a malware virus: it is worn out and needs replacing. Good luck with that old piece of iron, Greg.

Signal lights only work intermittenly

The blinker relay is getting worn out. It's right behind the hazard lights switch. Pull off the black trim around the radio, hazard, ets, and the relay is write there. Next time the blinkers stop working hit the hazard button or hit the trim just above the hazard lights button. Mines been doing it off and on and I just hit the trim above the hazard button and they start blinking again. Never have time or remember to get a new relay.

Have a 2007 ford f150 blinkers and 4 ways work fine untill headlights turned on then blinkers stay light but not blinking

Could be the turn singal relay not getting the correct power when lights engaged. Take out bulb from headlight and then turn on headlights. Now no power to the headlights. Try to turn on blinkers now. If they blink replace signal relay, if they still are solid it may be your flasher. Just a guess without looking. Thanks.

dont break the brakes..... TURNS & HAZ
many blinker, modules , internally flash with any load.
1: check all fuses first... (SOP)
2: then remove the blinker loads from the timer.

see it here

see WIRING, (end)
chapter 8w, page 51-4 shows the switch. (complex it is)
note how brake and turns are shared, resources. (blub elements)
now 8w-52-6
see the flasher module.
see C305 pin 2, any load on that pin will cause it to flash.(inside)
that would be any switch in the combo switch stuck on.
