Question about Cars & Trucks
Sounds like a short in the socket or a bad ground.
The parking light is one circuit and the brake turn signal is another.

likely not, but change /check anyhow....If problem persists, likely you will need to change the module that controls directionals (usually under dash to the right of steering column)

Hello. The symptoms you are describing are likely due to a poor ground. Temporarily install a new ground wire by securing a piece of copper wire to the frame with a self tapping screw. Use this ground wire along with the hot wire to see if each of these lights works. If it does, trace the ground wire back to the frame, unscrew it and clean up the metal with emery cloth so you reestablish a good ground.

Hi, first check the stop light fuse. If that is good, the problem is usually the brake switch above the pedal, but sometimes it is the relay. Check the switch first by pulling the connector off the switch and connecting the terminals inside the connector using a large paper clip. If that turns the lights on, replace the switch. If shorting the brake switch connector does not turn the lights on, reconnect the switch and try swapping the stop light relay with another similar relay, such as the horn or A/C relay.
Note: if you have cruise control, the brake switch connector will have 4 terminals. In this case, try connecting every combination of 2 terminals at a time to see if the lights will come on.
The fuse and relay are probably in one or the other boxes under the hood. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
