Remove all of your exterior light bulbs, you will most likely find a socket that has been melted or a bulb that has shorted the contacts.

    done all that founf a couple bare wires repaired them still same issue

  • mekanik84 Oct 20, 2013

    I'm sure it's not fuses but check them anyway. If you have a trailer hitch, check your wiring to the connector. Even cut it back far enough to eliminate it. You have a wiring problem, double check the plugs and check the ground circuit under bed towards the rear drivers side.

SOURCE: Brake lights dont work, Turn Signals all goofy

First thing i would do is chg. the break light switch, and make sure to chk. all grounds around tailights, sometimes if there is a ground problem it will travel back thru the hot wire to get a ground, witch in turn makes everything go wackey.

SOURCE: Brake & Turn signals do not work when headlights are on

The problem is what they call the printed circuit in the tail light. Remove the twist off light bulb connector. You will see the contacts inside and that the plastic is warped. You can purchase the entire fixture for about $350 if you replace it yourself. A dealer will charge about $450 per tail light fixture. Chrysler won't admit they have a problem that they should have issued a recall for. The problem is that if your stoplights are out, you may be involved in a rear end collision. Chrysler doesn't care. What I did was purchase a right angle tailight bulb holder and standard #1197 stoplight bulbs from advance auto supply. You have to trim the existing socket a little and splice the wires for the new light socket, but it beats paying $900 for replacing the two fixtures. I fixed mine about a year ago and haven't had any problems.

SOURCE: brake lights don't work when

{: ) Looks like your lightings got haywired. Have you had vehicle repairs recently? Anyway, it seems that you have poor grounding connections for the affected lightings. Some circuits share common ground, and ground terminals are strategically distributed on the vehicle. If these grounds don't have good contact with the body, chassis, or engine ground, circuit functions are badly affected. Thats why these ground points should be inspected and kept clean and tight, maintain that good wire and terminal contacts.
We can start with G100 located at the Left Front of the Engine Compartment on the left front body mount. See diagram below:


wyet_helps_24.gif Check out also G401 which is located in the chassis harness, mounted to the left rear Body mount. This ground point is shared by the rear lamps like the brakes, reverse, and rear signal lamps.
If possible check also other ground points that you may visually come across while on your search. Be sure also that fuses are all inspected good.
I hope we get lucky in finding and fixing a certain lamp function, if not all. Goodluck.

2005 Suburban brake signal light issue


Sounds like a faulty turn signal switch. The brake light wire is routed through the turn switch, so it appears the turn switch has gone crazy.

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.

Replace the turn signal switch. They can be fixed if your up to it, but you have to disassemble the switch. there are parts that have to go back in the right order. Let me know. The longer you let this go , you will start to lose the headlights. All the outside lights run threw the turn switch.

Sounds like the turn signal flasher module has gone bad. It controls the brake lights and turn signals. It is located under the drivers side of the dash. If is a rectangular black box with a grey connector and 8 or so wires connected to it.

Left blinker flash fast, hit brake left blinker goes out left taillight goes out but both backup lights come on


Usually a fast flashing signal is because one of the bulbs is burned out or shorted out. If the signal and brakes use the same light which many cars do then check the wiring to it and replace bulb. If burns out again then it has a short between the signal switch and the actual light or the brake wiring to it is shorted.

Turn signals blinking fast and stop when brakes applied


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)
