1. Check for power to the turn signal switch on the White and Yellow wires with the brake pedal depressed. If low voltage, check the stop light switch operation on the brake pedal. Check the Center High Mount stop light (CHMSL) circuit operation.

2. Check the black wires at the turn/brake sockets for a good ground.

3. If all OK, check for a bad frame ground to battery negative. 4. and dont forget to check the rear bulb

1993 chevy silverado parking lamps go of when i turn on headlights, signal lights flicker when i press on brake.


Yes I would look for a ground circuit problem. I would look at the ground wires for the headlights first. Even run a new ground wire for the tail lights to see if it helps.
Could be a ground connection for the body to frame or body to battery.

Turn signal and brake light problem


Had the exact problem on my 98 ranger 2wd reg cab stepside with the 2.5l 4 banger. Anytime I pressed the brake my passenger side turn signal would light up solid on the dash and the lights outside. I pulled both rear lights and both headlights and turn signals to check for corrosion/loose wires. Nothing. I checked and cleaned all my grounds and fuses. Nothing. Not until I followed my rear taillights wire harness did I find the problem. The two taillights are connected to each other via wire harness. My truck had the harness split with an adapter for trailer brakes. This harness was the problem. It is located under the rear bumper by the spare tire. Simply disconnect two harness plugs going into each side and remove it. Then connect the two plugs to each other. Problem solved.

'60 Buick Brake Light Not Working


First, let me say that the wooden boxes are a mistery. Have not got a clue.

As for the brake lights. If the lights work with the headlights on and the directional signals work, then look for the switch not working. It is usually located directly over the brake pedal, but farther up inside the dash.
Sometimes the directional signal can cause the same thing. The brake light system runs throught the directional signal system. This is how you can have on light flashing while the other is solid red, when braking with the signal on.
