Question about 2002 Jaguar X-Type
If blinker is on and you tap on break, rear brake lights both blink and both rear turn signal lights blink at the same time.
You have a faulty earth connection on one of the rear lights ,or both ? try running a seperate ground or earth wire to each real light and iam sure this will cure the problem

SOURCE: Rear Lights Malfunctioning
Usually when this kind of thing happens it will be a bad earth, that means that somewhere within the lighting circuit the earth cable has broken down. Try and locate the earth cable that connects the rear bulbs, see if any rust or damage is visible.
If not you could try adding a seperate earth cable to a clean point close to the bulb holder in the rear.
If this fails to work then it may be an idea to talk with an auto electrician.

Hi, you have a bad earth connection either where it connects to the light unit or to the body, suggest you clean and refit at these points.

Replace the turn signal switch. Bad contact inside causing a crossing of the circuits. When the turn signal is applied it should open the brake light circuit allowing for just the signal to work. Doesn't sound like the switch is doing it's job.
